5 Must-Have Health Products from Israel for Staying Protected
Keeping ourselves safe and healthy during these times is a round-the-clock job that we must all take seriously, especially since it’s nearly impossible to know who is infected and who isn’t. With this novel virus, there are a lot of things we still don’t understand, however, global health organizations like the WHO, the NHS, and the CDC have created special guidelines to help us stay safe. While the best thing to do is to stay home and practice good personal hygiene, it’s not always possible to self-isolate. Therefore, when going out to work, to the supermarket, or out for a walk, it’s important to take certain precautions to protect ourselves and others. Since your needs and safety are important to us, we’ve put together this smart shopping guide to help you find valuable products so you can stay protected!
Reusable Face Masks
Research has shown that wearing a face mask over your mouth and nose can be particularly effective in reducing the spread of airborne pathogens carried by nasal droplets dispersed into the air when we breathe, sneeze, or cough. Since the dreaded coronavirus is transmitted mostly by air, wearing a face mask while on the go is the smartest precaution you can take to avoid breathing in or expelling germs. Additionally, face masks can also help deter you from touching your face with your hands, thereby reducing the transference of germs from your hands to your mouth, nose, and eyes. On our store, we feature a small, but top quality selection of reusable face masks that are comfortable, affordable, and washable so you can toss them in your washer at the end of the day and wear them again the next morning! To get a mask that will fit perfectly and provide excellent protection, we recommend our double-layered contoured Face Mask. For something more relaxed and family-friendly, this Set of 4 Reusable Face Masks will be an ideal choice, especially since they are also double layered and available in children’s sizes so you and the whole family can enjoy being comfortable and safe!
Hand Sanitizer Gels
Another valuable and essential tool to help keep you safe these days is, of course, hand sanitizer. While lots of people opt for disposable gloves, unless you change these frequently, they aren’t that effective since they can quickly become contaminated with germs. The only way to keep your hands suitably clean is to either wash them regularly with antibacterial hand soap or to use a good-quality, alcohol-based hand sanitizer. While good hand sanitizers were once easy to pick up at your local pharmacy, with the wave of panicked shoppers buying out stores and unregulated, bogus products making their way onto shelves, finding a safe and trustworthy product has become challenging. Thankfully, we’re offering a range of highly effective hand sanitizer gels produced by leading Israeli cosmetics brands that are made with 70% alcohol and certified by Israel’s Ministry of Health so you can shop these products with confidence! From travel-sized bottles infused with soothing aloe vera to refreshing bottles of deep-cleansing alcohol gel, and even individual pocket-sized packets of hand sanitizer, you’ll find every size and variation of hand sanitizer you want only a click away!
Disposable Sanitizing Wipes
Like hand sanitizer, disposable sanitizing wipes are a smart thing to have on you when you’re out of the house. Useful for disinfecting not just hands, but also bacteria-common surfaces such as shopping wagons, door handles, bus seats and rails, as well as desktops and computer hardware, these large, cloth-like wipes come in a set of 10 individually wrapped wipes, so you can easily throw a sachet or two into a pocket or purse and head out the door! Made with 70% alcohol and effective enough to kill 99.9% of germs, these handy disposable sanitizing wipes are a must-have for anyone concerned with health and safety.
Alcohol Hand Sanitizing Spray
If you’re not a big fan of hand sanitizer gels or wipes, then perhaps you’ll prefer this refreshing hand sanitizer spray! Made with 70% alcohol and infused with calming aloe vera, this pleasantly scented spray effectively kills 99.9% of germs and will leave your skin feeling clean and fresh. A great and easy product for maintaining proper hand hygiene, this convenient spray sanitizer will also make a great choice for nail technicians looking to ensure the sanitation and cleanliness of their tools and clients.
Soothing Hand Creams
After weeks of rigorous and constant hand washing and moisture-sapping hand sanitizer gels, your hands are likely looking (and feeling) pretty chaffed and dry. Since excessively dry skin can lead to small and painful cuts on your hands and wrists that make it easy for germs and bacteria to enter, it’s important to properly rehydrate your skin to offset the harsh side effects of frequent washing. However, not all hand creams are made equal, so come discover the best hand creams on the market right here! Enjoy luxuriously nutrient-rich products made with Dead Sea minerals such as this award-winning AHAVA DERMUD Intense Hand Cream, or this gentle, pampering Edom Mineral Hand Cream which is a bestselling favorite among our customers! Whichever hand cream you choose, we're sure that these fabulous skincare products are exactly what your skin needs to bring back its naturally soft and healthy texture!
