Don’t Touch Your Face

We’re living at a time when people remind us, “Don’t touch your face!”  We’re told it’s the surest way to get Coronavirus (or any virus for that matter).  This is easier said than done.  In one study the subjects touched their face an average 23 times during an hour.  It’s a hard habit to break.  My nose seems to itch more as I just talk about this!  Perhaps the main reason we often touch our face is because we were doing it throughout most of pregnancy.  You first touched your face at about eight weeks after conception.  There’s video footage in the womb to prove it, and can be watched on the free mobile app called See Baby Pregnancy Guide.  Not only could your fingers be counted at that stage, you could and did touch your face.  Stay safe and healthy.
