Glowing skin can be a sign of good health and care. There are a lot of factors that affect whether your skin glows, and many of them are things you can control. Along with taking good care on a daily basis, you can help your skin glow by making sure it has the nutrients it needs for optimal health. PatchAid Patches for Hair, Skin, and Nails contain many such nutrients.*
Clean Your Skin
Keeping your skin clean is a great and simple first-line defense against skin damage and infections. Gentle products are best, and you don’t need a fancy or expensive product. A gentle antibacterial soap works fine.
Use Clean Towels
Be sure you use clean, dry towels to dry your skin, since towels can quickly become a source of bacteria if you keep using the same ones. Use a newly laundered towel every day or two to be sure. Also, don’t share towels. Use your own towel for your own skin.
Moisturize Your Skin
Moisturizing your skin, especially when it’s dry outside or after a shower, can help it glow. You may need to experiment to find which type of moisturizer works best for your skin type and needs.
Ultraviolet, or UV, radiation from the sun can cause sunburns and increase the risk of skin cancer. It also, over time, can make your skin look less healthy and radiant. Most skin experts suggest using a broad spectrum sunscreen when you go into the sun. Apply it to your face and other exposed areas of skin to protect them.
Your skin is the biggest organ in your body. Don’t you think it needs good food to be healthy? A good amount of protein is essential for strong skin, and so are a full range of vitamins, such as vitamin A, B vitamins, and vitamin D. A variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, fish, nuts, avocados, and other unprocessed foods can support skin health.
Similarly, you can support skin health by limiting sugary, processed, and fatty foods, such as fried foods, desserts, and fast foods.
Use PatchAid Patches
Nutritious foods have a lot of vitamins and minerals for skin health, but are you getting optimal amounts every day? And, are you getting supplemental, non-essential compounds that could support better skin health?
PatchAid Patches for Skin, Hair, and Nails have a variety of compounds that can support healthy skin.* Depending on which you choose, they may have B vitamins, which are needed for normal metabolism and circulation, vitamin A, which is known for skin health and immunity, and collagen, which contributes to skin elasticity and a youthful appearance. Antioxidants are known to protect against cellular damage as well.
They’re easy to use; just apply one every day and leave it on for up to eight hours before removing and discarding it. It’s also good to know that you can use multiple PatchAid patches at once. That means you can support your skin health goals while also using other patches to support other health and wellness goals.*
Smoking can be one of the quickest ways to stop your skin from glowing. Smoke and chemicals in tobacco can cause damage to the cells of your skin, and that’s not going to make it glow! Smoking can also break down collagen in skin, making it appear more wrinkled.
It’s hard to quit smoking or tobacco use once you’ve started, but know this: for many successful quitters, it takes 20 to 30 tries before they quit for good. And, there are many programs out there. Ask your doctor for recommendations, referrals, and any other support that you may need.
Yes, stress doesn’t only make you feel older. It makes you look older. Manage stress better, and you may notice that your skin starts to glow more, just the way you may feel like you’re glowing inside when you keep stress under control.
It’s not always possible to reduce the amount of stressors you have, but there are some ways to manage them better. These are some examples.
- Deep breathing
- Progressive relaxation
- Taking a walk
- Laughing more
- Phoning a friend
Practicing stress management techniques, such as the above, can make you better at them. That makes them more effective, and they’ll be easier for you to use and keep using when you need them.
Like stress management, getting more sleep helps you feel better and look better. Sleep is restorative for your mind and body, including your skin. Most adults regularly run short on sleep. Here are some ways to support better sleep.
- Go to bed at a consistent bedtime, likely an earlier one than you’re used to, and keep that bedtime consistent on the weekends as well.
- Make sure your bedroom is cool, dark, and quiet.
- Don’t eat too late before bedtime, and keep your dinner light.
- Avoid alcohol at bedtime, and avoid caffeine within six hours of bedtime.
It only makes sense that your skin has more of a chance to glow when your body is well rested. PatchAid Sleep Patches are formulated to support your healthy sleep habits naturally.*
Staying active can help boost circulation. That means your blood travels more freely in your body, and that may mean that your skin gets more oxygen and nutrients, and waste from your skin is removed more efficiently. That sounds like a formula for making skin shine!
Your skin can be at its best when you give it proper care, such as protecting it, cleansing it, and nourishing it. PatchAid Patches can be part of your skin care regimen. Just be sure to ask your healthcare provider before using any nutritional supplements.
