How to Effectively Eliminate Coronavirus From Your Face
Are you embarrassed to go out in public with your nose and mouth covered? Well, you shouldn’t be! The simple truth is that one of the most common causes of uncomplicated respiratory infections is the common cold. So, don’t let this cold limit your fun – there are many other ways you can protect your health and reduce the spread of the common cold. Continue reading below for more information on face masks, hand wash stations, and other preventative measures.
Yes, if you’re in a public area where you’ll run into other people, you absolutely need to wear a face mask if possible. While surgical masks provide some level of protection, they are not very effective. They either prevent or reduce a lot of the entry of respiratory droplets, so that the virus cannot be contracted. Face masks help prevent aerosol particles from entering your nose, which is important if you often suffer from colds as the entry of respiratory droplets is a significant cause of cold sores.
Although surgical masks are recommended for those with severe colds, there are other options that you may wish to consider. There are disposable face masks available that are designed to protect you from the entry of respiratory droplets by restricting the flow of air into the mask. These face masks work well if you only have mild to moderate congestion. However, if your congestion is particularly bad, or if it tends to get worse when you wear the mask, it’s time to consider something a little better. Look for a high quality, anti-bacterial face mask to give you ultimate protection.
If you have your own devices for cleaning out your nasal passages, there are two good choices. The first is to use a pre-moistened natural fibre or cotton ball for this purpose. Natural fibres are far superior to man-made versions as they tend to be much more resistant to the action of bacteria and fewer particles are able to pass through them. Pre-mixed balls made from a mixture of bacteria-killing enzymes are also available, and although these masks work effectively, it can take a few weeks for bacteria to be completely eradicated from the air. For this reason, it’s usually advisable to clean these out regularly using an alcohol wipe.
Another option is to make your own home remedies. Typically you’ll need a quart of distilled water, one quarter cup of hydrogen peroxide, and a hand or face mask. Combine the hydrogen peroxide in the water with the distilled water, allowing for the peroxide to dissolve completely in a few minutes. Next, add a liberal amount of hand or face wash, and let this sit for five minutes before draining off. Again, it’s best to wash these thoroughly before draining them into the drainage.
Another option is to buy an environmentally friendly product such as Ecover or Nature Cleanse. These products utilize a natural disinfecting ingredient to kill bacteria and remove other contaminants from your air. Typically, a solution made with 10 parts water and one part Ecover will give satisfactory results when used in conjunction with a hand or face mask at an approved area. The downside to these natural products is that they don’t have the same convenience of washing in the washing machine like Ecover or other brands do. In addition, these can be more expensive than Ecover or other brands of masks.
If you have an open faucet or shower in your home, you can also use either a hand sanitizer or Ecover directly on your face and hands. Whichever you choose, always remember to wash your hands with warm water and a mild soap before touching any open area. Additionally, don’t touch your eyes or mouth with your hands. And, if possible, try not to let children come in contact with your face, as the bacteria that cause botulism can be transferred from them to you and to anyone else in the home.
For more convenient convenience, consider using an alcohol-based rinse instead of a hand sanitizer. These rinses eliminate the need for washing your hands, which is especially convenient if you’re doing the laundry anyway. Another option is to use alcohol wipes, which are just a damp cloth that you mix with your cleaning liquid. This is a great choice for households with children who will be using the bathroom. Lastly, don’t forget to dry your face with a clean towel after your wash.
