7 Hygienic Habits to Protect What Matters Most

The fight against the COVID-19 virus continues even today. While the world embarks on a global search for a vaccine to contain the pandemic, the first line of defense in protecting ourselves and our loved ones is good personal hygiene.

Proper bathroom hygiene is essential, and especially important when we are spending more time together at home. By sharing 7 simple habits, the new HygieneClean™ campaign by American Standard™ seeks to educate and promote better bathroom hygiene to help us protect what matters most - our loved ones. While hand washing remains the most effective action to reduce the spread of pathogens, good bathroom hygiene habits are also important.


Habit #1: Wash your hands frequently. The number of germs on your hands can double after you use the toilet and can cause serious health problems if they come into contact with your eyes, nose and mouth. By washing hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, we can prevent the spread of infections including COVID-19. The Signature Collection basin faucet features the ComfortMove™ technology which promises a smooth and precise handling movement for just the right amount of water, every time. The faucet also contains low lead for an additional level of health and safety for you and your family.

Habit #2: Flush the toilet after every use. If you think the toilet bowl is festering with germs, you’re probably right. On average, a toilet bowl is home to 3.2 million bacteria per square inch, which is why flushing after every use is important for the safety of our health.

Featured in the Acacia Evolution Collection, Aqua Ceramic™ harnesses the power of water to penetrate between contaminants and the toilet surface, ensuring that waste is lifted off with every flush. The one-piece toilets are also equipped with the Double Vortex™ flushing system which ensures maximum flushing performance with minimum water usage, saving 22,776 liters of water in a year for a family of 4. Combined with PowerRim™ technology, the rimless design eliminates hard to reach surfaces for effective removal of dirt and stains; while ComfortClean™ technology features an antibacterial glaze that effectively inhibits the growth of E. coli bacteria in the toilet bowl.

Habit #3: Shower frequently. Showering frequently not only keeps grime and germs away, it can also be a great experience with intuitive controls, multiple spray modes and safety with American Standard Safety Lock on the EasySET™ shower products. The EasySET™ Concealed has a preset temperature function which means you no longer waste precious water fiddling with the control for the perfect comfortable water temperature. The Safety Lock ensures that water temperature is kept at a safe level to protect the young ones from scalding incidents.

Habit #4: Clean your toilet thoroughly. A single gram of human feces can actually contain up to one trillion germs. E. coli is one of the many bacteria found in feces (and toilets) that can cause gut-related and respiratory infections. To combat against E. coli, American Standard™ has developed ComfortClean™ technology, part of its HygieneClean™ System to provide long-lasting protection against bacteria and germs. A revolutionary ceramic glaze with zinc oxide effectively inhibits the growth of E-coli inside the toilet bowl, as proven in tests conducted by Industrial Microbiological Services Limited (IMSL). ComfortClean™ can be found in the Signature Collection, where the one-piece toilets are also equipped with SiphonMax™ Flushing System with PowerRim™ to remove both heavy and light waste with minimum effort.

Habit #5: Maintain good personal hygiene when using the toilet. Manual bidets and e-bidets are gaining more popularity as they provide a more sanitary cleanse. Compared to hand-held trigger sprays, manual bidets and e-bidets offer hands-free options for a hygienic cleanse and keep the toilet seat clean and dry. The Slim Smart Washer II, a manual bidet seat and cover that fits easily with elongated toilet bowls, comes with self-cleaning antibacterial dual nozzles to allow for different angles for posterior and feminine cleansing, and effectively minimizing risks of cross contamination.

Habit #6: Make personal cleansing more hygienic. More consumers are making the upgrade to integrated shower toilets for elevated hygiene, comfort and convenience. With an integrated shower toilet like the Aerozen™, the auto-flush feature provides for a germ-free and hands-free experience. Its seat sensor eliminates any accidental flushes and water wastage. It also features dual nozzles that are antibacterial and self-cleaning, so there is little worry about cross contamination among users. Nozzle tips are rinsed with water before and after every use, while a nozzle shutter provides added hygienic protection against potential backsplash. Its quick-detach seat cover allows it to be easily removed for convenient cleaning of hard-to-reach areas. 

Habit #7: Clean and disinfect high touchpoints regularly: Practice routine cleaning of frequently touched surfaces in the bathroom such as sinks, faucets, toilets, door handles and light switches. The sink where we wash our hands harbors over 2,700 bacteria in a square inch. Now the faucet which we turn on with our dirty hands, and then off with clean hands has over 6000 bacteria lurking per square inch! That is probably enough reason (and germs) for us to start wiping down the bathroom regularly!

American Standard™ products continue to be packed with HygieneClean™ technologies to raise hygiene standards globally. The highly dependable offerings of American Standard™ have been providing consumers with inviting bathrooms to relax in. Innovative breakthroughs and technologies have further placed the brand at the forefront as it endeavors to raise the standard of living by delivering bathroom solutions that are beautiful, purposeful and safe for everyone.

Reminders on How to Stay Healthy During Lockdown

With the sudden surge in COVID-19 cases in different parts of the country, many cities and municipalities have already re-imposed stricter community quarantines that may last for a few weeks or longer.

We’ve been in a lockdown for more than a year so we essentially know how to keep ourselves mentally and physically healthy while staying at home, but a few reminders won’t hurt. To help you stay safe and protected during these times, AXA Philippines, one of the country’s leading insurance providers, shares these important tips on how to stay healthy at home.

 
Eat healthy. As you stay safe at home, you can strengthen your body’s immune system by adopting a healthier diet. Be sure to consume more vegetables and fruits for a good dose of essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Aside from COVID-19 prevention, this will also do wonders for your body as it can improve digestive health and lower your blood pressure, among many other health benefits.

Exercise at home. With more spare time on your hands, you can take an hour or two every day to do some workouts at home. For starters, you can check out YouTube and just follow simple fitness tutorial videos for beginners. Once you get used to it, this may also be the start of a new active lifestyle – lockdown or no lockdown.

Stock up on essentials. With the increase in COVID-19 cases, it’s best to stay away from crowded places. If you can, get everything you need in one trip when you visit your local supermarket, pharmacy, or convenience store. Better yet, have them delivered to your home. Don’t forget essential items to maintain your overall well-being, such as food, medicine, and hygiene and self-care products.

Wash and sanitize. Ever since the outbreak, medical experts have advised that the proper washing of hands is still the best way to prevent getting COVID-19. So, remember to do so whenever necessary. Also, carry a hand sanitizer or alcohol with you at all times in case there’s limited access to running water while you’re out for necessary commutes. It’s also best to sanitize items that you have delivered or taken home from the outside and other high touch point surfaces in your house, such as doorknobs, light switches, remote controls, and faucets and taps.

Take a social media detox. Nowadays, social media can be a source not only of valuable COVID information, but also of negative content such as bad or fake news, chaotic rants, humble brags, and other things that may cause loneliness, anxiety, and low self-esteem. This is mentally unhealthy, especially during isolation. Give yourself a bit of inner peace by taking a break. Channel your time and energy toward activities that may be a better use of your time, such as reading books, journaling, taking online classes, or doing short meditations.

Aside from these tips, AXA Philippines also strives to help you stay healthy and protected all year round with its extensive portfolio of health solutions. For example, with AXA Health Start, you and your family can prepare for health setbacks and get coverage for top critical illnesses namely heart attack, stroke, and cancer. The affordable policy covers your family in one plan with built-in coverage for child of insured against child critical conditions, and it covers two lives in the plan: the policyholder and a spouse, parent, or sibling. The plan also has life insurance coverage and flexible payment terms payable in 10 or 20 years.

5 Must-Know Tips on Preparing a Safer and Healthier Baon


With the easing of quarantine protocols in many parts of the country, employees are starting to adapt to the new normal and return to work. However, things aren't quite back to how they used to be. For instance, many restaurants are still closed, or are open but with limited capacity which, among other important issues, limits the food choices for Filipino workers during break time.

To help with this, Solane, the country's leading LPG brand, offers some tips on safely preparing healthy baon that you can bring to work.


Clean your cooking space. Prior to cooking, make sure to clean every kitchen surface and equipment that your food will come into contact with to stop bacteria from spreading. This includes the countertops, cutting boards, pans, dishes, and even utensils. Wash or wipe them down with warm, soapy water and dry them with a clean cloth or paper towel. Also, do not forget to wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

Cook with fresh ingredients. Now more than ever, preparing a healthy meal is essential, and cooking at home enables you to do so. Avoid canned or processed food. Instead, buy fresh and high-quality ingredients. Fresh food can really improve your health since it retains more nutrients. Also, you can enjoy a tastier meal because you get the most flavor possible from fresh ingredients. Try supporting local businesses and buy your groceries from them. Many reputable sellers are on social media and offer delivery.

Use insulated containers. Using an insulated lunch box and containers is the best option for packing your meals. Consider investing in them if you haven’t yet. They can keep your food warm and help minimize bacterial contamination and growth. Another advantage of having insulated containers is that they are reusable, eco-friendly, and may be safer. Single-use plastic containers and food wraps may carry a higher risk of cross-contamination.

Store food properly. To avoid rushing to cook your lunch in the morning, it's a good idea to prepare your meal the night before, or even days ahead. When prepping ahead of time, it’s also advisable to know how to store your food properly to maintain its quality. If you’re storing freshly cooked food, let your food cool first for a few minutes before putting it in your fridge to avoid spoilage. Cook a big batch, then divide it into small portions and put in separate containers for each day of the workweek. Also, always check the shelf life of the meals you make.

Turn off all heat sources. After you are done preparing your meals, make sure to turn off all the cooking equipment that you used, especially the gas stove and the LPG cylinder. Moreover, it is best to cook with a trusted liquefied petroleum gas brand like Solane to help ensure safety in the kitchen.

Let's Go Green: Yorme Isko Moreno Returns to the Place Where He Started

Mayor ISKO MORENO threaded an impoverished area in Manila while growing up.  As the elected City Mayor of Manila, more popularly known to Filipinos as Yorme, he never wavered amidst adversities hurled at him for taking several steps in making a better version of the city he fondly calls his home and crowning glory. Bold and fearless, Yorme puts his heart and mind in anything he does - “Believe in yourself! You’ve got nothing to lose.” 


Yorme recently signed Ordinance 8607 declaring the permanence of Arroceros Forest Park dubbed as the “Last lung of the City”, home to 61 tree varieties and 8,000 ornamental plants. The new ordinance forbids the cutting of trees and dumping of waste within the park. Part of his plan is to allocate P1 million solely for its preservation and maintenance away from urbanization and all these efforts stem from his greater plan to make Manila a “Green City”.


Yorme firmly believes in the power of nature. It’s no secret that he advocates on using natural products. No wonder, early this year Yorme became the newest brand ambassador of NOVUHAIR, Nature’s Answer to Hair Loss. Watch the full video at https://youtu.be/udvLJKXesYE
