Cruise Ship Survival Guide - Part 4 - Clean Hands - Top Tips for Avoiding Gastro & Staying Healthy
In this part 4 of the healthy cruise holiday preparation plan, we'll explore the tip 4 for staying healthy on cruise holidays...
Tip 4 - Wash your hands thoroughly
After you use the toilet, make sure to use soap not just water. Though on a separate health topic, most anti-bacterial hand soaps used in cruise ships and public restrooms contain harmful chemicals, including triclosan, which has been linked to host of health problems including hormone disruption and infertility.
Instead of using the chemical soaps, I use the Young Living waterless hand purifier. It's small compact size makes it perfect to fit in the travel bag or handbag.
With the Thieves waterless hand purifier, it's designed for use in public restrooms and travel. It's a waterless hand wash, meaning you don't need to use water.
I simply use a small dollop of the Thieves waterless hand purifier, rub the hands together. Plus, it smells great and doesn't dry the skin.
If I don't have the Thieves waterless hand purifier handy, I use an essential oil drop on the hands to clean and cleanse, either Thieves essential oil or lemon essential oil.
Sanitise your hands before eating
Wash your hands before eating
We've talked about cleaning the hands in the restroom, though your hands are coming into contact with potentially contaminated cruise ship surfaces all day long. Before eating, and before putting your hands near your mouth or eyes (germs travel very easily through the mucous membranes of the mouth, nose and eyes), wash or sanitise your hands.
Again, I carry the Thieves Waterless purifier for this. It's compact size allows it to easily fit in my pocket or hand bag. I simply use a dollop of the gel on my hands at the dining table before eating.
