It doesn't matter where you go these days, someone is telling you to wash your hands. It's on the news, all over your social media pages, pasted on every door, wall, and window you pass. Wash your hands. We know it's the best way to protect us from that COVID-19 that we're all trying so hard to avoid! Wash Your Hands. Well, I don't know about you, but washing my hands 57485784 times a day was starting to take a serious toll on my skin! Most soaps contain ingredients that strip your skin's natural oils and healthy bacteria, leaving them dry and unprotected from environmental toxins and exposure. Though this is absolutely effective at keeping you healthy and protected from getting sick, there is definitely a better way!
Beauty From Bees has launched a fantastic new line of hand-care products that will get those hands as clean as can be, without all of the damage and dryness that most store-brand soaps and washes can cause. What's the secret? Ingredients that are actually good for your skin.
The Probiotic Foaming Hand Soap is an absolute must have for every sink in your house! This gentle wash is formulated with natural ingredients that are specially chosen for both their germ-fighting powers, and their skin-enhancing properties. The foaming action effectively washes away all of the dirt and grime, including those germs and bacteria that we can't see, while the added probiotics work to encourage the good bacteria that your skin needs! The great eucalyptus smell is an added bonus I can't get enough of (which also doubles as a great way for my kids to prove to me that they've actually washed their hands and not just rinsed!)
Now, I'm a mom. My purse carries everything but the kitchen sink, which is a real downfall these days when we need to be constantly washing our hands on the go. This leaves us with a couple of choices - get a bigger purse, or find a water-free cleaning solution. Enter the Beauty From Bees Probiotic Hand Spray! This alcohol-free solution comes in a convenient spray bottle, and has found its permanent home in my purse, right next to the snacks and band-aids. The powerful blend of essential oils and probiotics work to fight off the bad bugs, while encouraging the growth of the good ones! I use it to quickly clean our hands, shopping carts, steering wheels, doorknobs and other high-touch surfaces that I'm in contact with, wherever I might be, because as much as I know I'm washing my hands, there's just no way of knowing that everyone else who is touching them is also scrubbing up!
Unfortunately for all of us, those publicly available soaps that we are using more and more often these days aren't formulated with the same skin-loving ingredients that Beauty From Bees spoils us with, and that means my skin is feeling a little dried out and abused! I'm pretty sure the last two years have added ten years to the look of my hands, and I'm not loving it! Fortunately, Beauty From Bees saw that ouch, and stepped up with a Hand Balm that now lives in my pocket! This solid solution is unscented, and perfect for all skin types. It's filled with moisturizing, healing, skin-enhancing ingredients that leave my hands feeling soft and smooth, without being greasy or gross.
Wash your hands, but love your skin. It's your first defense against getting sick, and it deserves all of the pampering and care that it can get, just like the rest of your body!
