Keep the Flu at Bay with Clean Hands
Flu shots and hand sanitizers have their place, but good old-fashioned hand hygiene can do wonders in preventing the spread of sickness. Wash hands with soap (studies show non-antibacterial is actually best) and warm water often to stay healthy.

Skin Deep: 

All that washing strips skin of its natural moisture. Invest in a moisturizing cream to keep dry skin away. 

Anti-Antibacterial: 

Antimicrobial or antibacterial soaps can create bacteria that are resistant to disinfectants — yikes! Good thing regular soap works just as well to keep hands clean.
