Although the baby’s face is very delicate, it should also be cleaned frequently. Especially when children are older, they should wash their faces every day when they often go out, so that they can be clean and sanitary. And research shows that: children wash their faces, water is better!

Children wash their faces with running water

In rural and remote mountainous areas of our country, due to the limitation of environment and conditions, we still use washbasin to wash our hands and faces. Wash your face after washing your hands with the same basin of water. Some even several people or the whole family wash their faces with the same basin of water. This is very unsanitary. It can not only wash the bacteria on their hands, but also infect them to others, especially when they are suffering from infectious eye diseases (such as red eye disease), which will infect the whole family. In kindergartens and schools, red eye disease will be prevalent.

Scientists have tried to put bacteria on clean and dirty skin. After 10 minutes, bacteria on dirty skin are still very active, and bacteria on clean skin are almost dead. It has also been proved that even if the hands are washed clean, after 3 hours, the bacteria on the hands will increase 1000 times. Many of them are still pathogenic bacteria, so it is necessary to clean the hands frequently. Kindergarten teachers and parents should teach children to wash their hands frequently. If you wash your hands with flowing water, the bacteria will be washed away naturally, but if you wash your hands and face with a washbasin, the bacteria are all in the washbasin, so it is not easy to wash them, and it is also easy to infect others.

Therefore, from the perspective of prevention of infectious eye diseases, we advocate that kindergartens, schools, canteens, etc. wash their hands and faces with running water as much as possible, which is good for everyone.

After washing the baby’s face, in order to avoid dryness and discomfort, you should apply a little rubbing oil for children to keep the baby’s skin smooth, especially in the windy spring or before going out.
