How to stop touching your face
There has been a lot of media coverage recently on the importance of avoiding touching our faces. We’re all guilty of doing so more frequently than we should, with studies showing we touch our faces approximately 23 times an hour.
Whether it’s biting our nails, rubbing eyes or scratching an itch, humans are one of the few species known for regularly touching their face. Whilst we often don’t notice we are doing so, this is not only a bad habit but can also contribute to spreading viruses and passing germs. When we touch our face with dirty and unwashed hands, germs can gather in our mucous membranes, found in the nose, oral cavity and lips, which can lead to an infection.
With health risk at an all-time high, it has never been more crucial to attempt to break the worldwide habit. Many experts have recently spoken out asking individuals to stop touching their face, but what can we use to help us?
