In the BC (before coronavirus) era, people who carried around sanitising products were touted as ‘clean freaks’. Cut to early 2020, a global pandemic brought the world to a halt and made these products the most coveted items on our shopping lists. Over six months later, the world is beginning to learn how to cope with the ‘new normal’--and it involves face masks, incessant hand washing, using sanitizing skincare products and disinfecting everything.
So what should be the extent of our cautiousness? This may come across as paranoid, but there is no limit to the number of precautions one can take. You should absolutely sanitise every object and surface you come in contact with. The question is, which product should you use? Should we use the same sanitising product that we use to wipe down surfaces on our skin? The damage these harsh chemicals are doing to our skin is another cause for concern.
Fortunately, MyGlamm’s new range of germ-killing products, called WIPEOUT, is here to help us with this specific problem. Every product in this range works to kill germs, and they come in various forms--be it wipes, sanitising spray, soap bar, body wash or body lotion. Plus, all of them are enriched with nourishing essential oils, so your skin stays clean and supple.
Let us introduce you to these multi-functional, germ-killing, life-saving products:
Given that there’s an airborne killer virus around, we’d encourage you to sanitise anything and everything you come in contact with. However, there are some surfaces that you just don’t want to touch--even if to sanitise them! This is when the WIPEOUT Sanitizing Spray comes in handy. This gentle yet powerful disinfectant spray kills germs not just on surfaces but also in the air around you. It’s the perfect product to toss in your bag and sanitise public spaces such as lift buttons, car handles, door handles or milk packets. Oh, and you can also use it to sanitise literally everything else too-hands, parcels, makeup products--you name it!
When you come home from a grocery run, it isn’t enough to just wash your hands. Now that the WHO has admitted to claims that the virus is possibly airborne, it can live anywhere on your body when you're out--your hair, your clothes, your skin. So the safest thing to do when you get home is to throw your clothes into the laundry immediately and take a head-to-toe bath. The WIPEOUT Germ Killing Body Wash will kill any traces of the virus, or any other bacteria and germs from your body. This gentle antimicrobial body wash is also infused with skin-regenerating and germ-killing ingredients that will cleanse, purify and protect your skin around the clock!
Did you know that every time you wash yourself, your skin automatically loses hydration? This is known as trans-epidermal water loss. In order to maintain your skin’s hydration level after a bath, it’s important to moisturise your ENTIRE body (you heard that right--not just your arms and legs). And what’s better than a moisturiser that nourishes and hydrates your skin? One that also kills germs at the same time! The indulgent WIPEOUT Germ Killing Body Lotion is enriched with tea tree oil, rose and cucumber extracts to refresh and soothe, while the nutgrass oil along with chlorhexidine kills germs and protects your skin all day. Plus, it helps that it smells like a dream!
All that excessive hand washing and obsessive sanitising is probably affecting the skin on your hands, leaving them dry and uncomfortable. What if we told you that your hand cream could nourish your hands while killing germs at the same time? The WIPEOUT Hand Cream is enriched with decadent cocoa butter, cinnamon and rosemary oils, along with a blend of germ-killing chlorhexidine--which together restore, moisture, protect and nourish your hands anytime, anywhere! Now that’s what we call a multi-tasker!
When it comes to moisturising, your feet are often the most ignored parts of your body--but that doesn’t mean they don’t deserve the extra TLC! Given that we’re in the middle of a global pandemic, it would be pragmatic to wash your feet along with your hands once you get home, especially if you were wearing sandals or flip flops. Once you wash them, we recommend moisturising with WIPEOUT’s Germ Killing Foot Cream. This will not only ensure that there are no traces of the virus on your feet, but will also take care of your skin. The rich cream features a base of soothing cocoa butter, infused with purifying lavender oil and anti-inflammatory ginger oil. It also contains chlorhexidine to kill germs and is blended with essential oils like tea tree, rosemary and eucalyptus to moisturise skin, relieve tired feet and reduce irritation. There you have it--the foot cream you never knew you needed!
If you do have access to water, we’d recommend that you wash your hands with soap and water instead of using a sanitising product. This is because the lather from the soap can do a better job of getting germs out from, say, your fingernails. And while any soap and water should work, the WIPEOUT Germ Killing Soap is designed to kill germs, remove impurities, and nourish and moisturise your skin. It’s also infused with tea tree oil, a natural antiviral and antibacterial agent, while the cocoa butter works to soften your skin. It doesn’t hurt to be extra cautious during a pandemic, right?
While in the shower, don’t forget to pay extra attention to cleanse your face. However, we wouldn’t advise you to use the same produce you use for your body on your face. Enter Wipeout’s Germ Killing Face Wash, which is specifically designed for your face’s extra sensitive skin. Besides killing germs, this antimicrobial daily cleanser is enriched with tea tree oil, cucumber and aloe vera to gently cleanse your skin and remove impurities. And did we mention that it’s non-comedogenic? This way you don’t need to worry about germs or clogged pores--win win!
Liquid sanitising products are great, but they cannot be used to clean every surface--say your smartphone for example (don’t try it, you WILL regret it). For a while, I tried using liquid sanitising products with paper towels, but it only resulted in a mess. WIPEOUT’s sanitizing wipes are a godsend in this case, because you can use them to wipe down surfaces and products. So whether you need to wipe down the seat of your uber or even sanitise your own hands, thanks to its moisturising properties. Enriched with eucalyptus and lemon oil, these wipes moisturise and recharge your skin while smelling amazing at the same time. The best part? They’re all individually wrapped, so you can just toss one in your wallet, pocket or makeup kit if you’re not carrying a bag.

While the cleansing towels are safe to use for children and senior citizens, you need something extra gentle for toddlers and babies. This is why you should be using the WIPEOUT Baby Safety Wipes--they contain aloe vera extract, chamomile extract, and vitamin E which protect, soothe, calm and moisturise the baby’s skin. They’re also made from super-soft non-woven fabric keeping the baby’s extra sensitive skin in mind, and are safe to use all over the body, including intimate areas. Keep your baby happy, healthy and SAFE.
Picture this: You’re out for a grocery run, the mask and humidity are making you sweat like a tropical rainforest. Dirt and dust is sticking to your face. And suddenly, your face is itchy. But the first rule of coronavirus club is that you cannot. touch. your. face. You could try sanitising your hands and then touching your face, but that would transfer the alcohol and harsh chemicals to your sensitive skin. Or you could just use WIPEOUT’s cleansing towels, which are meant specifically for your face. Besides killing germs, these wipes are pH balanced and antimicrobial, and keep your skin clean, fresh and moisturised. So always keep these towels handy, and say goodbye to your itchy face (or any other part of your body).
So there you have it--your complete guide to staying germ-free while making sure that your skin is nourished and protected at the same time. I don’t know about you, I’ve never pressed the add to cart button this quickly in my life. So do yourself a favor and stock up on these multi-tasking heroes. I know I’ll never leave home without them. #NotWithoutMyWIPEOUT
