How to protect yourself and your baby after regaining your appetite
In your second trimester, the morning sickness symptoms you experienced at the start of your pregnancy will begin to subside. In other good news, you will also regain your energy levels and appetite that may have previously gone down. However, as you start to eat more food, you also need to ensure that you remain protected against illnesses and viruses.
When you're preparing food, a proper hand washing routine is essential to prevent cross-contamination and to limit the spread of bacteria that can cause illnesses ie. Influenza, salmonella, corona and E.coli.
When you are washing your hands, you're not killing the bacteria, you are simply rinsing them off. Ordinary soap doesn't kill bacteria; it just loosens it off your hands so they can be washed down the drain.
An antibacterial handwash, on the other hand, ensures that your skin is disinfected and protected from illness-causing germs. If you feel your hands need extra nourishment, Dettol’s Skincare liquid handwash and bar soap gives you 100% better germ protection, while providing your skin with extra care and moisturization.
