Advice from the experts..

I wear plastic gloves when out now, certainly shopping. They remind me not to touch my face. They seem to make you really conscious of your hands and what they’re doing.

This is the thing I'm finding most difficult now. I am trying to remember not to, but it's just such a natural thing to do, it's going to take a lot to break the habit

I'm finding it hard as well. You do it without thinking.

Me too, rub my nose, and when concentrating I rub my chin,

I wish I could wear gloves , make things easier.

But my thought is that if you are a natural “face toucher” what difference would gloves make ?

We need those balaclavas with just the eyes and mouth cut out.

This is where a burkha would come in handy.?

Wearing a mask DOES stop you from face touching. Trouble is, the mask is SO hot I can't bear it for long.

I bet all those experts were thinking "must not touch face. Must not touch face.." while they were giving their talks.

One of these might help.

merlotgran Tue 17-Mar-20 22:17:30

Bet it's hot though.

People wearing masks are always fiddling with them if you notice. Best not to wear one.

It's much easier said than done!
I tried not to touch my face last time I went out.
I nearly managed, but then had to adjust my glasses.
We were only at the swimming pool for an hour and a half, you'd have thought I could manage not to touch my face during that time.?
