My daughter woke up this morning, rubbed her sleepy eyes, brushed her hair out of her face, and stumbled into the kitchen. We display our School Menu Calendar on the fridge, so I wasn’t at all surprised she was checking it out to see what she was going to eat today. She looks closer, looks at me, looks closer, and says, “Mom, how many more days ’till Spring Break?”
That’s right, Spring Break is just over a week away and my family is counting down the days. My husband has taken vacation, my sister is out of work, and we’re all heading to Sea World San Antonio. The Killer Whale incident in Florida is not at all affecting our decision. In fact, we’re confident Sea World is till family friendly and safe as ever. If there is one thing we’re worried about, it’s the germs we’ll encounter and how often we’ll have to sanitize hands.
Spring Break is one of the busiest seasons for travelers. Families and students are “chomping at the bit” to take a break, let off steam, and go on an adventure. Being that my family experienced the H1N1 Flu this year, I haven’t let my guard down against it. No, in fact, we’ve discovered an amazing Hand Sanitizer called Infectiguard, that will help aid in protecting us against such germs, yet gentle enough for even the most sensitive of hands.
When treated right, hands can be one of our strongest beauty assets. Infectiguard™, www.infectiguard.com, a new line of skin-friendly lotion-formula hand sanitizers prevents the spread of germs, such as the flu virus. Experts say it’s all about moisture, maintenance and protection.
Momma Findings Family Thoughts:
Do you guys remember me, in panic mode, after we all came down with the H1N1 Flu Virus? My mind swiftly went into, “Aftermath” mode.
– How long will this flu last?
– What do we do when we’ve recovered?
– How can we prevent it?
I came up with all kinds of solutions, but the ultimate answer was, literally, in my hands all along. Wash hands. Wash hands. Wash hands. Well, with three small children, it’s difficult to be somewhere where we can wash our hands all the time. So, we’ve started carrying around Hand Sanitizer.
My toddler constantly has ant bites or scratches from playing so rough outside, and regular hand sanitizer really stings those areas. With Infectiguard, the formula is so gentle, yet effective, that we don’t have to worry! Moisturizing ingredients like aloe vera and vitamin E make Infectiguard as soft on the skin as it is hard on germs. You’d never know from the smooth results that the formula contains 62% alcohol – mandated by the Centers for Disease Control to kill bacteria.
- During your trip, follow local guidelines and practice healthy habits
- Pay attention to announcements from the local government and monitor the local health and security situation.
- Follow any movement restrictions and prevention recommendations.
- Wash your hands often with soap and running water, especially after coughing or sneezing. (Use alcohol-based hand gels — containing at least 60% alcohol — when soap is not available and hands are not visibly dirty.)
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, and put your used tissue in the trash. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve, not your hands.
- Avoid close contact with sick people.
