As you may already know, flu season is in full swing. According to Dr. Michael Roizen, YouBeauty.com Wellness expert, “symptoms range from sniffles and chills to a high fever that keeps you home from work all week, or worse—flu lands 200,000 people in the hospital each year and kills more than 30 thousand in this country alone.”
As businesses reopen and we all head back to work after the holidays, our immune system needs all the help it can get to keep it fully functioning and free from germs and viruses. Here are some quick tricks that will help you to avoid the dreaded flu and keep you feeling healthy & happy all season long!
Washing your hands is probably the single most important thing you can do to avoid catching the flu. Be sure to constantly wash your hands to rid them of the germs that may cause you to get sick. Wash them as often as you can!
Suggested Product: Bath & Body Works Antibacterial Deep Foaming Hand Soap ($5.50 each)
Bath & Body Works Anti-Bacterial Hand Soap is the perfect way to refresh your hands and kill off powerful germs – plus, the wide variety of fragrances will leave your hands smelling delicious all day long.
Obviously, when you’re out and about, you’re going to be touching lots of things that others have touched before you. It’s smart to keep an antibacterial sanitizer in your bag so that you can fight germs as often as you want. Just one small squirt on your hands will kill over 99.9% of germs.
