The recent Corona virus outbreak has once again been a wake-up call to all of us about the importance of hygiene. If we had better hygiene standards, maybe we could have avoided the extent of the damage that it has already done. Hygiene today has become a word for classrooms and hospitality industry when, in reality, we need to adopt it in every aspect of our life, especially while traveling. It’s understandable to have a carefree attitude during a break or vacation, but it’s also important to be germ free while traveling. So, here are some quick hygiene hacks while traveling. Let’s begin, shall we?
Wash your hands.
The simplest thing to do. Sadly, often the most neglected. Washing your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds can keep those germs and you at bay from illnesses like food poisoning, jaundice and typhoid. 20 seconds for your health is really a no-brainer. And in case if soap and water are not available, carry an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Still need excuses?
Moisturize to stay supple.
Depending on the climate of your destination and the skin type, pack sun blocks, moisturizers and lip balms. Remember to stay hydrated and don’t ignore facial cleanliness. Keep wet facial wipes handy and avoid touching your face to prevent breakouts. After all, everyone wants to see that charming face of yours, isn’t it? (wink-wink)
Keep the essentials handy.
Who doesn’t like a radiating smile? Always keep essential items like a toothbrush, toothpaste and deodorant handy. Clean skin and teeth not only freshen up your breath but also brings a breath of fresh air to your personality. If you face the problem of bad breath, then carry some fresh mints or a breath spray along with you.
Body wash alternative.
If you are an adventurous traveler, there will be plenty of situations on your trip when you don’t have access to a shower or even water but don’t worry. Thanks to a variety of grooming products in the market, you don’t require water. Just apply these products on your skin is enough. It is an ideal cleanliness tool for camping and long hiking trips.
Clean clothes to stay germ free.

A packable waterproof jacket might come in handy in case you get caught in the rain. These days many fragrant conditioners for clothes are also available in the market. And the good thing is they come in easy disposable sachets.
