A priori insignificant, we multiply unknowingly little things harmful to our health. Overview mistakes not to make! Mistake # 1: Spending floss before brushing teeth Skip floss before brushing your teeth may seem logical enough: roughly dislodges food particles and other salad leaves stuck between his front teeth before brushing opt for a rule. Error! Same mistake! "Flossing is more effective in removing microscopic debris between the teeth after brushing allowing just remove larger particles," said Clarisse, dentist. Floss after brushing also helps to transfer the toothpaste in the crevices between the teeth, which maximizes its anti-germ. Mistake # 2: Use an electric hand dryers It is customary to say that electric hand dryers are more sanitary than paper towels. Yet it is totally false. According to the American microbiologist Keith Redway, University of Westminster: "Most electric dryers pull air from the room and then spit contaminants directly on their hands" he says. Another problem highlighted: rubbing his hands against one another stir bacteria in the pores of the skin and make it to the surface. However use paper towels reduced by nearly 60% levels of microbes on the palms of the hand. Mistake # 3: Wash hands after applying the sunscreen This is one of the few times when it is crucial not to wash your hands! "I attend frequently accelerated aging hands because people forget to put cream there or because they wash their hands immediately after" notes Karine dermatologist. And this advise applying sunscreen as you would with a cream intended for this purpose, while insisting on the nails. "This is certainly dead cells but the underlying tissue is active and sensitive" alert the foundation against cancer of the skin. Mistake # 4: Disinfect the wound with hydrogen peroxide Hydrogen peroxide is a powerful disinfectant. So powerful that it even kills the skin at the same time that germs! "It reduces the number of fibroblasts, a cell type crucial for the cleaning and repair of damaged tissues," says David Bar-Or, director of trauma research at Swedish Medical Center in Colorado and author of a study on the dangers of peroxide. Instead, clean the wound with soap and water and apply a cream Vaseline and then cover with an adhesive bandage. German researchers have shown that Vaseline creates a moist environment that promotes healing of minor injuries. Mistake # 5: Do not change the liquid's contact lenses Why should regularly drain the oil in his car? Because it clogs course! Well with the decontamination liquid contact lenses, it's the same: it must be changed every time and especially not simply add clean liquid solution containing the above lenses. For optimal hygiene, it is essential to clean, rinse and dry in the open air before the housing lens to fill clean solution.
