Wash your hands often and thoroughly (back of hands, between fingers and under your nails), using regular soap with warm water, and wash for 20 full seconds.

Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you sneeze or cough. If you don’t have a tissue, sneeze or cough into your elbow, which prevents contaminating your hands and spreading the germs to other surfaces you touch.

Avoid touching your mouth, nose, and eyes, which can spread germs.

Keep your diet healthy. Antioxidant-rich vegetables and fruits—such as broccoli, sweet peppers, carrots, citrus fruits, blueberries, pomegranate, and green leafy vegetables (such as spinach)—can improve your immune function and overall health.

DIY Himalayan Salt Scrub

Body scrubs are easier to make than you think! The three main ingredients a body scrub entails are probably sitting in your kitchen.

If you have never made a body scrub before and want to practice making one under a budget, 3 simple ingredients you can use are Salt or Sugar, Coconut oil or Olive Oil, and an essential oil of your choice for fragrance(this is optional). If you have experience making scrubs or want to try something new, here is a blend of different ingredients that I find works best for a soft, smooth finish.

Ingredients:
1 cup Epsom Salt (softens skin and removes dead skin cells)
½ cup Himalayan Salt (removes dead skin cells)
1 tbsp Coconut oil (moisturizes and softens skin)
1 tbsp Vitamin E oil (moisturizes and softens skin)
1 tbsp Grapeseed Oil (moisturizes and softens skin)
2 tbsp Shea Butter (moisturizes and softens skin)
10 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil (heals troubled skin such as acne)
10 drops Lavender Essential Oil (soothes skin of irritation)
