Global Handwashing Day – October 15, 2021
Global Handwashing Day is an international handwashing campaign to motivate and mobilize people around the world to improve their handwashing habits. Washing hands at critical points during the day and washing with soap are both important. Global Handwashing Day occurs on October 15th of each year.

Global Handwashing Day was founded by the Global Handwashing Partnership as an opportunity to design and implement creative ways to encourage people to wash their hands with soap, especially during critical times.
The first Global Handwashing Day was held in 2008. Since then, the community as well as national leaders and influencers have used this national holiday to spread awareness about the value of clean hands. It really is a valuable message -- hand washing is such a simple practice, but it really can make all the difference and save lives.

Global Handwashing Day continues to grow. It’s endorsed by schools, governments, international institutions, private companies, civil society organizations, and more. Its goal is to create awareness about how handwashing can prevent the spread of disease and encourage more handwashing within society.

So yes, washing your hands is easy, and it is indeed one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of germs. Clean hands are pretty hands and help you take care of your skin and health at the same time. You know how important first impressions are; they quickly take in your appearance and everything that stands out. If your hands are neglected, it shows and that will be noticed quickly. But if they are beautiful, clean, and soft they will be seen even faster and most likely be admired.

Here is an easy-to-follow guide on how to properly wash your hands:
~ Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap to not waste precious water, then apply soap.
~ Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Don’t forget to lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.
~ Gently scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds.
~ Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.
~ Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them. Be gentle to your skin, so don’t rub your skin too hard with the towel.

Use any soap that feels good to your skin. Mild and organic ingredients are ideal due to their non-toxic ingredients and not only do they make your hands feel clean, but they are also often much gentler to your skin too. Try our lovely Deluvia Soap Bars or our Liquid Soaps.

Happy Global Handwashing Day! And make Global Handwashing Day every day!
