Dont touch your face!!!

#1

Post by UlteriorModem »

Doctors are advising to not touch your face, specifically your eyes, nose, or lips.

This is one of the most difficult things I have ever tried to do! I think trying to quit smoking is easier!

Read somewhere that the average Human touches their face 12-20 times an hour!

As soon as you say 'Dont touch your nose' it starts itching!

yeah i see a lot of people wearing a face mask and take it off for a brief moment and then put it back on, as soon as you touch it or take it off, it should be discarded and then you should scrub your hands and put a new one on

The only way this will work for me is to get arrested. Wrists chained together and that chain attached to another around my waist.
And a chic orange coverall will enhance the ensemble nicely. :twisted:

Maybe paint your fingers with something stinky as a reminder?

I read the original post on my phone. Incredible itching sensation at my right eyebrow. Nearly drove me crazy until I could wash my hands and scratch my face. Aggghhh!

Wash your hands, then touch your face all you want.
Not that everyone will want to watch you do it...

I'm working on a remote nose-picker. I believe there is a market.

Ok then

but can I keep scratching the lower parts or do I have to rub myself on the floor like a dog?

Use a phone / tablet stylus. Keep it in a jar of alcohol?

WhenI was a kid, barbers used to keep combs and whatever in a big jar of blue liquid. Wonder what brand of sanitizer that was.

Get an onion, cut it in half, and rub it all over your hands.

Won't take long until you stop touching your face.

It also facilitates social distancing. :lol:

I think it's probably ok if you are in your home environment and have washed your hands. Not touching your face is an advisory if you are in a public environment, where you have touched common surfaces.

Yes, that fine print is often glossed over in the warnings. I'm not going to spend the whole day washing my hands while at home. But my habit has always been to wash hands on returning home anyway. So I'm doing nothing different.

Well going out in public is always risky.
