Melissa (founder of MiaThrives) and I are both in London for the EB Wolrd Congress 2020. Today I am going to talk about an easy hotel hack that you can do from anywhere in the world!
You can watch the full video here (or down below).
Heightened risk of infection while travelling
When you are on the road your system might be slightly compromised due to a lack of sleep, change of schedule, and exposure to germs. In my personal experience, I get more skin infections when I am travelling. This might be the case for some of you as well. One of the ways I can feel a skin infection coming is when that part of my body has a warmer temperature. There could be a red ring around a blister or sore, and puss is also an indication of infection.
One of the first things I do is ask the hotel front desk for some table salt. Although sea salt is ideal when you are on the road, table salt will also do the trick! I add this salt to my daily bathwater and also soak the affected body part in a glass or bowl with warm salt water a few times daily. This often helps get the infection under control to avoid having to take antibiotics.
We would love to hear from you if this is something you’ve tried and it works for you! Also, feel free to let us know if you have any other EB Hacks!
