Sanitize, Shower & Moisturise: Safety Steps I Take When I Get Home From Grocery Runs


Even though the lockdown has been lifted and we’re slowly getting back to the life we once considered normal, we need to keep in mind that we’re not out of the woods yet. This pandemic is still very much around, so it’s necessary to take proper precautions in order to stay safe. Remember--just because you can go out, it doesn’t mean that you should! While I try to avoid going out as much as I can, grocery and medicine runs are inevitable. Unlike the pre-COVID days where I could just go down to the store, get my requirements, come home, kick my feet up and relax, this new pandemic world calls for a whole new routine. While practising social distancing is important and wearing a face mask out in public has been made mandatory, you also need to incorporate a few safety measures once you’re back home. For me, it’s integrating WIPEOUT by MyGlamm into my daily life. These products kill/stop the growth of germ and bacteria on the skin while keeping it soft and moisturised. 

Sanitize, Shower and Moisturise--these are the 3 key steps that I follow in order to stay protected and germ-free after venturing outside. When it comes to body washes and moisturisers, I’ve kept my regular products aside and invested in those that are better suited for these testing times. The WIPEOUT by MyGlamm range now reigns over my personal care routine.

Step 1) Sanitize

Groceries and other packages pass through many hands before reaching you, so it is riddled with bacteria and viruses. Using these products without sanitizing them can be risky. Once I’m home, I allocate a specific area in the house to keep the groceries. Whatever products can’t be washed are cleaned with the WIPEOUT Sanitizing Wipes. These multi-purpose wipes are enriched with eucalyptus and lemon oil along with germ-fighting alcohol that kills 99% germs present on any surface. The wipes are easy to carry around and can also be used to disinfect all high-touch areas in your vehicle like the steering wheel, car door handles etc. after every use.

Note: During this entire process, it is important to keep your hands away from your face to avoid the transfer of germs. 

Step 2) Shower

While your face mask will protect you from any illness-causing germs and asymptomatic carriers who will be out and about, there’s still a chance of bacteria settling on your clothes. After sanitizing the products, you need to immediately wash the clothes you were wearing with detergent and jump in the shower. When it comes to my body wash, the WIPEOUT Germ-Killing Body Wash definitely puts my mind at ease as I know that it will not only moisturise my skin but also curb the growth of bacteria and microbes on the skin.

Unlike other brands, this body wash won’t cause dryness as you’ll be feeding your skin with natural antimicrobial ingredients like tea tree oil, chamomile and lavender oil, all of which, when mixed together, get rid of any impurities and kill 99% germs. It’s also enriched with natural skin-regeneration properties that will leave the skin feeling soft and youthful. With this body wash, you can be sure that your skin is protected all day long!

Step 3) Moisturise

Applying moisturiser after a shower is always important no matter the season or your skin type. The last step to germ-proofing my skin once I get back home is applying the WIPEOUT Germ Killing Body Lotion all over my body. Applying lotion directly after a shower helps you maintain soft, silky smooth skin as it locks in the moisture and keeps the skin hydrated. But since we’re in the middle of a global pandemic, you also need to protect your skin from all the nasties. Most antimicrobial lotions available in the market have a high alcohol percentage, which tends to do more harm than good.

Here's where WIPEOUT Germ Killing Body Lotion comes to the rescue. This antimicrobial body lotion possesses properties like cocoa butter, tea tree oil, rose and cucumber extracts to refresh and soothe skin along with nutgrass oil to kill germs, microbes and protects your skin around the clock.

The secret to getting germ-free, soft skin is investing in the new WIPEOUT range by MyGlamm. Get your hands on these products ASAP so that the next time you're out on a grocery run, you’ll have these germ-destroyers waiting for you when you get back home.
