1. Prevent propagation of the virus

Respect the protective measures provided by Health authorities i.

• Wash your hands properly & frequently: clean your hands regularly and thoroughly with a dermatological cleansing gel or a hydro-alcoholic gel for at least 40-60 seconds.

Wondering how exactly to wash your hands to ensure proper cleansing and care?

• Maintain social distancing: maintain at least 1 metre distance between yourself and others.

• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth: if you feel any irritation, clean your nose with physiological serum (saline nose spray). If you have sore eyes, use artificial tears.

• Practice respiratory hygiene: cover your mouth and nose with your bent elbow and a clean tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.

• In case of fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early.

• Stay informed and follow advice given by your national and local public health authority on how to protect yourself the most appropriate manner from COVID-19: please visit the South African COVID-19 Corona Virus Resource Portal https://sacoronavirus.co.za/.

You can also stay informed about the pandemic propagation and find the advice from the WHO on: https://www.who.int/

 

2. Preserve your skin

Repeated cleansing can damage the skin barrier, leaving the skin fragile.

• Right after washing your hands, take care to moisturise them to avoid altering the skin barrier. 

• In cases of facial cleansing and especially on those days when you're doing a #stayhome facial mask, always moisturise your face morning & evening to avoid irritations.

Professor Brigitte Dreno, Head of Department of Dermatology CHU Nantes, France, and Vice Dean of Research at the Faculty of Medicine, tells us what precautionary steps we can take to protect ourselves and others.

Despite containment measures in France, our factory remains open. All our production teams are actively working to produce essential hygiene and moisturising products to meet your needs.

As a NAOS brand, this forms part of our CARE movement - working alongside healthcare professionals, including dermatologists, doctors, pharmacists  - to take care of your health, people and the world around us.
