    Washing Your Hands Often? Try our Moisturizing Gel Gloves

    Washing Your Hands Often? Try our Moisturizing Gel Gloves

    One of the most effective ways to protect yourself from the current spread of COVID-19 is to wash your hands often.

    The CDC recommends these steps for the best way to wash and clean your hands

    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
    • If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until the feel dry.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. 

    By over-washing your hands, cracks and cuts can develop ironically making it easier for bacteria to enter your body. With most businesses closed around the nation, bring the spa into your own home with our NatraCure Intense Hydrating Gel Gloves. If you have dry hands, fingers or cuticles, they can become soft and supple with our dermatologist-tested moisturizing gloves. They are lined with a Medical Grade Mineral oil that has been proven effective to repair dry cracked skin.

    They are the perfect complement to the frequent hand-washing that's become an important daily activity to keep you and your family healthy and safe. 

    As the inner mineral gel lining comes into contact with your skin, they will warm up to your body temperature, releasing therapeutic botanical oils including Jojoba Oil, Olive Oil and Grape Seed Oil. After each home treatment, your hands will have a more smooth, hydrated feeling.

    The best part? You can use your own favorite moisturizing cream inside the gloves for extra hydration and smoothness. It's like giving your moisturizing gloves a power boost!

    The gloves lock in moisture with a non-breathable gel lining that steeps your hands in nourishing goodness. Just slip these comfortable gloves and socks on and wear them around the house, or wear them to bed. 

    We hope all of our customers and your loved ones stay safe, healthy and positive during this unprecedented time!

    10 Ways to Maintain Mental Health During A Coronavirus Lockdown

    10 Ways to Maintain Mental Health During A Coronavirus Lockdown

    Millions of us around the globe are being instructed to stay inside our homes, limit trips outside, and minimize our social interaction. Everyday life is feeling pretty surreal right now. Individuals are worried about their physical health, mental health, and everything in between. Social distancing is an unnatural process for humans, but for right now, it is essential.


    Here are ten ways to maintain your mental health during the lockdown period:

    1. Keep a routine: While it is difficult to keep a routine, it is beneficial to your mental health and productivity. 
    2. Go outside: Be one with nature, get some fresh air, and clear your mind.  But be sure to practice social distancing.
    3. Clean your home: De-clutter, organize shelves, closets, dressers etc. A clean home provides a sense of control in uncertain times. 
    4. Meditate: Practice breathing exercises, yoga, and mindfulness. 
    5. Maintain your social connections: Humans are built for social interaction. During crises, humans naturally come together. While texting and social media are okay, picking up the phone and calling someone via video chat or on a normal phone call can be much more beneficial to easing your mind. Examples of video chats include: FaceTime, Skype, Zoom, Google Hangouts Video, and Facebook Video.
    6. Help Others: Giving to others can also help protect your mental and physical health. It can reduce stress, combat depression, keep you mentally stimulated, and provide a sense of purpose.
    7.  Limit News Consumption: Establish a reasonable rate of news consumption from reliable sources such as the Center of Disease Control and World Health Organization. 
    8. Eat Healthy: A healthy diet is as important to mental health as it is to physical health.
    9. Ask for Help: If you are feeling overwhelmed, reach out to a friend or family member to filter the news for you. This will allow you to limit the amount of time you are consuming the news. Remember, it is okay to not be okay and if it is out of your control, seek professional help. 
      National Suicide Hotline: (800)-273-8255.
    10. Let yourself off the hook: Things are going to out of place for a while and if you have to adjust your workout, screen time, or outdoor activity time, remind yourself it is only temporary.

    10 Ways to Implement Wellness At Work

    10 Ways to Implement Wellness At Work

    April is fast approaching, which means so is Stress Awareness Month. 30 full days to focus on how to cope with stress and the general threat it presents to an individual's overall health.

    Here are 10 great ways of how to promote workplace wellness:

    1. Improve Employees' Mental Health: We need to look out for one another! It starts with creating a company-wide mental health plan and offering reimbursement to see a counselor (if required) and reassuring help will be provided, if needed. 
    2. Encourage Employee Connections: People who are happy with their jobs and happy while at work often say they have strong, personal relationships with co-workers. 
    3. Organize your team for a charity event: The work place is encouraging both physical activity and a stronger sense of giving back to one's community. 
    4. Host Walking Meetings: Instead of sitting in a conference room to have a meeting, consider taking a walk around the block.
    5. Move Around: Try to move your body every hour for at least 5 minutes. Take a quick walk or do some light stretching of your arms, legs, back and shoulders. 
    6. Reward Employees for Healthy Behavior: Columbus-based Medical Mutual of Ohio upped its health and wellness incentive from $50 to $350 in 2010 and from $350 to $1,000 in 2014. Participation rates rose to 90 percent for the company’s health assessment and to 70 percent for the full wellness program. At Medical Mutual, to earn a maximum $1,000 incentive, employees have to complete an online health assessment, participate in activities such as lunch-and-learn sessions, take online educational classes and make at least eight trips to the gym each month. 
    7. Set Boundaries Between Work Time and Non-Work Time: Take advantage of the time away from the office to recharge yourself and relax. 
    8. Institute Summer Fridays: Let your employees enjoy more of their summer by offering a half day or shortened days on Friday between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
    9. Establish Designated Coffee/Tea Time: Take 15 minutes sometime during the day to grab a cup of coffee for a pick-me-up. This develops team bonding and the chance to catch up with one another and exchange stories and laughs. 
    10. Offer a Supportive Company Culture: Positive and supportive company cultures will help recruitment efforts, while helping retain top talent. Employees are much more likely to stay with their current employer when they feel they are being treated well.
