The holidays are the most wonderful time of the year, or so the saying goes, right? To me, this time of year creates so much hustle, bustle, and craziness that a few things seem to happen: germs transfer everywhere, and somewhere during all the cooking we end up burned. Shopping is a given during this joyous time of the year and with shopping comes shopping carts, toys, clothes, door handles and everything else that is touched by the general public and then by you, meaning those germs are creeping onto your hands! As for the season, it entitles you to a lot of time in the kitchen, whether you are entertaining or hauling food with you to the relatives homes you are visiting and when we cook, often burns occur! Lavishly place germs at bay and help ease those burns away from your skin with a few ‘beauty’ and lifestyle tips I have for you.
It’s the night of Christmas mass and everyone is dressed in their holiday best. The kids are playing in the pews, the pastor is speaking, and it is time to shake everyone’s hand, signing peace to one another and all of mankind. While I love getting along with the neighbor, strangers, etc., I don’t want their germs. Many people cough and sneeze into their hands and those germs are transmitted by a simple handshake, and that is one gift I don’t want this year, thank you. After the sign of peace in our church lately, something have been smelling a bit different, perhaps it is the scent of Purell Advanced Hand Sanitizer. I can not personally shake someone’s hand or to touch something others have been touching without purging my hands, it is my own little personal ‘insanity’ that I proudly claim. My kids tease me non-stop because I literally can’t shake a hand and not grab my sanitizer. Did you know that Purell Advanced Hand Sanitizer kills 99.9% of germs and is trusted by more leading hospitals than any other brand? Purell Advanced Hand Sanitizer is easy on the hands, and comes in may different dispensers as you can see above including: Portable 1 fl. oz Jelly Wrap Carriers(my personal favorite) and the holiday scents include, Sweet Plum, Ginger Spice and Oven-Baked Apples. There are PURELL Sanitizing wipes that are great on hands and for quick wipes on public tables and of course the good old pump for your home, office or desk!
Beauty and the Burn
The holiday season boasts beauty primping as well as baking and both can be equally dangerous. I should know, not so long ago, before a photo shoot, I was fixing my hair with a hot appliance and before I knew it my wrist was bubbling with a burn. The pain insane, and my answer was ScarAway. Have you ever been baking and hit your forearm with the oven rack? It is just as bad as a curling iron burn. The problem is, untended these burns can actually scar and I personally did not want an unnecessary mark on my arm, so grab the ScarAway. ScarAway Silicone Daily Discs use silicone technology to help shrink and flatten then fade new and old scars. You do have to apply these once a day, and they are disposable. The discs are super small, and hardly noticeable, measuring only about 1.375″ and are best for those scars that are less than 1″ in diameter. These are products to be used at-home, and are non-prescription. Boxes contain 30 discs for a one month supply, stay committed and you will see a difference.
Stay germ-free, and burn free during your lavish celebrations and festive season and remember to lavishly live life out lout.
