Your sick child can affect you too, and we don’t just mean the possible spread of infection within the household. It can take an emotional and physical toll on your health while you deal with your child’s physical needs. Your schedule will probably be disrupted, as you need to take time off to look after them.
Protecting your family from illness should not be stressful. Just follow these guidelines to keep disease-causing organisms at bay and help your loved ones fight off infections.
Showering at least once daily, washing one’s hands before and after meals and after using the toilet, and covering one’s mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing are all good habits that can prevent the spread of germs.
When washing up or showering, use antibacterial soap to protect your family’s skin from germs. But make sure you look out for products that are formulated with safe and gentle antibacterial ingredients. One such trusted brand is Kirei Kirei, Japan’s no.1 hand soap*. Products include Body Foam and Foaming Hand Soap which are formulated with a safe antibacterial ingredient called IPMP (isopropyl methylphenol) for superior protection. The 100 per cent, plant-based cleansers gently cleanse and care for skin.
Be sure to keep your household surfaces clean, including things you use like clothes, dishes and utensils, by using an antibacterial cleaning product. Door knobs, door handles, light switches and the toilet are areas where germs tend to thrive, so remember to keep these parts of your home extra clean.
If your family is constantly on the move or just extremely busy with a packed schedule, it’s even more important to be vigilant about hygiene. You never know what you or your family members may pick up outdoors! The best thing you can do is to be prepared. Bring along the Kirei Kirei Anti-bacterial Hand Sanitizer which protects hands and cares for skin with added moisturisers.
A diet that is packed with antioxidant-rich fruit and veggies is key to boosting your family’s immune system. This way, they will be better able to fend off illnesses.
Make sure that your kids get enough outdoor play. Exercise strengthens the immune system by boosting cells in the body that are designed to attack bacteria.
