Selena Gomez Just Taught Us a Handwashing Secret for Anyone With Long Nails

Lather, rinse, and repeat? Honestly, why not! Thanks to the United Nations WHO #SafeHands COVID-19 challenge currently making its way around the internet, odds are anyone who participates has to run through the whole process a few times before finally capturing the perfect video to post to his or her Instagram feed—and celebs are no exception! 

Longtime Who What Wear favorite Selena Gomez made headlines earlier this week when she accepted the challenge from Thrive Global founder and CEO, Arianna Huffington. Watch the video below as Gomez lathers up in her kitchen and shares her tips for cleaning under long nails, saving water, and to see who she challenges next.
