What make us humans so susceptible during outbreaks?
We keep touching our faces!
Yes. It is that simple, yet not easiest habit to break.
In one observational study done at University of North South Wales, Sydney, it was found that
students touched their faces an average of
23 times an hour.
This makes us more prone to infecting ourselves with diseases by spreading the bacteria and viruses when we touch our surroundings environment or even other people.
What can be done?
Let's be real, it is not that we are being deliberate about touching our faces. In fact, it's considered as a self soothing mechanism according to Dacher Keltner, a psychologist at the University of California, Berkeley.
While being aware of this habit, certainly helps, we do need to take extra measures to combat the likelihood of falling ill.
1Hand Hygiene - Can never wash you hands too many times, to be safe. Keep a sanitiser ready in case you do not readily have access to a washroom.
2Wearing a mask reduces the propensity to touch your face and reduces your risk of spreading the disease to much a greater extent.
3Bonus: If you have an itch, use the back of your arm to reduce the risk. Sneeze into your elbow. The idea is to not use your fingers or palms.

About 1001 Remedies
1001 Remedies is born from 25 years old of Aromatherapy Heritage passed down in our founder’s family, Sofia.

From that concern emerged an idea: What if we created holistic remedies devoid of harmful chemicals and full of the most gorgeous things Nature has to offer? It sounds like a dream but it is our reality, today, 1001 Remedies sells a holistic lifestyle before selling products. It was a long journey but our aim remains the same: Wellness. Yours.
