“Spread Love, Not Germs!”
Soap.Â Not the most glamorous beauty accessory, but certainly an important one.Â It’s the season of colds & flues, runny noses and being coughed on by strangers.Â Crowded buses, filthy hand rails, packed waiting rooms.Â There’s nothing fun – or fashionable – about being sick!Â Concealer can only go so far in cover red noses and dark under eyes, lip balm can’t always compete with wind chapped lips, and even the most eye opening mascara won’t make it look like you got a great night’s sleep.Â So what’s the solution?Â Don’t get sick in the first place!
Hand washing and sanitizing is key.Â Of course, this is true throughout the year as well – but in the winter time, spending hours in department stores shopping for gifts and perhaps eating more cookies than immune boosting vegetables…Â Well let’s just say it’s important to kill those germs!
Of course, constant hand washing and sanitizing can lead to sore, cracked palms.Â In order to avoid this equally unattractive alternative to illness, using products packed with skin nourishing ingredients is key.Â Every year I stock up on products from the Anti-Bacterial line at Bath & Body Works.Â I was originally attracted to the products for their amazing range of scents, but now come back for the quality.
Bath & Body Works offers several types of soap, which help target your specific hand washing needs.
Deep Cleansing Soap, $4.50 or 3/$10
“Cleansing beads and germ killers get dirty hands clean and leave skin lightly scented. Triclosan kills germs, Vitamins B5 & E nourish skin, and gentle exfoliators cleanse deeply.”
Available in scents like Festive Vanilla Fig, Juniper Breeze, and Mango Mandarin.
Gentle Foaming Soap, $5 or 3/$10
“Soft bursts of lightweight foam gently wash away dirt and germs, while leaving skin soft and lightly scented.Â Triclosan kills germs, aloe vera soothes skin, and Pro-Vitamin B5 nourishes skin.”
