Keeping skin well moisturised is important as soap and sanitisers don’t work as well on skin that is broken or raw (and people are more reluctant to use them due to the discomfort they’re in). Cracked, dry or bleeding hands are also susceptible to infection - so keep your moisturiser handy and make sure to use it only with clean hands.

‘Don’t forget to wash your hands!’has always been a frequent demand on our farm to our little ones and big ones alike. Now with this awful COVID19 situation, it’s become a reminder of how important simple hand-washing is to our health.
