Covid-19 and skin care
Since the outbreak of Coronavirus in December 2019, there have been multiple preventive measures endorsed by the WHO and healthcare professionals. Since no cure has been found for the disease yet, preventive measures are essential to follow. The critical element to prevent the infection is a strong immunity.
Even though there are several ways to boost your immunity internally, vitamin supplements, and a varied diet, healthy skin is also essential. A skin with any cuts, sores, or wounds can make the body susceptible to bacterial infections1. Evidently, bacterial infections can result in an immunocompromised state of the body and hence, results in the body catching a number of opportunistic infections, and the individual becomes high-risk for Coronavirus as well.
To maintain skin health, it is essential to keep the skin well-hydrated and moisturized2. Dry skin can dissolve the lipid bilayer of the skin due to which the skin loses its purpose of being a barrier
against the disease. To counter this, instead of chemical-based moisturizers, aloe vera 10X-D gel can be used. Aloe vera 10X-D has hydrating properties and moisturizes the skin. As a result, the skin retains its lipid bilayer and effectively stops bacterial pathogens3, which can make the body vulnerable to Coronavirus.

Moreover, aloe vera gel made of small polymer chain molecules has a higher absorption rate. It boosts the production of collagen, which can speed up the healing process of wounds too4. Therefore, the chances of Coronavirus contagion reduces significantly. The wounds would heal faster, and the spread through cuts and wounds could be ceased.
Another product that can boost the skins health is a multi ingredient anti-aging serum. Anti-aging serums with a number of ingredients such as vitamins, minerals, 72-hour hydration, Matrixyl 3000 and caffien for increased circulation, not only stop the destruction of skin proteins elastin and collagen but also trigger the production of these proteins5. As a result, skin health improves greatly, and the risk of catching Coronavirus is decreased.
In times like these, it is essential to keep your skin health in check. It is widely believed by medical professionals that an open cut not only compromises the immunity of the body but can also be an essential site of catching Coronavirus. Along with that, poor skin health, dryness, dissolved lipid bilayer of the skin, and impaired elastin and collagen in the skin can put your body at risk to get COVID-19. Hence, the use of aloe vera 10X-D or a multi ingredient anti aging product, especially those made of small polymer chains and anti-aging serums, can protect people against the disease as well.
