When you spend a lot of the time out in harsh weather, either for work or hobbies, you may find that your skin pays the price. It can be easy to simply chalk these changes and issues up to the climate, however, there may be ways that you can improve the way your skin looks and feels. Cold air, heavy winds, and even rain and hail can have an adverse effect on your skin, and may even make it lose its softness. At times, you might also notice that too much time in the cold can make you look older than you really are. Finding ways to minimise this damage, and make yourself feel better, can be important.
Too much time spent in serious weather conditions without much protection may advance the signs of ageing. It could be entirely possible that you are in your 20s, 30s, or 40s, but look significantly older. One of the ways that you may want to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles can be through a facelift at Cadogan Clinic. Unlike a traditional lift, a mini facelift can be a lot less invasive, and even have less noticeable scarring. You may want to avoid that harsh weather throughout the healing period, and then take better care of your skin going forward so that you don’t need more procedures too soon. For some people, a mini facelift can greatly improve their confidence.
Taking note of the weather, and adjusting your outfit to suit those conditions, can also be quite crucial. You may already be aware of the damage that the sun can do to your skin, including burning and a greater risk of skin cancer. To overcome this, you may use sunscreen, wear thin layers, and utilise sunhats and sunglasses. When it comes to colder weather, you may also need adequate protection. This could come from thicker jackets, as well as the use of hats, scarves, and gloves. In particularly windy weather, items such as a balaclava could help to keep this off of your skin, or at least limit some of the damage.
During the winter months, you may notice that your skin becomes a bit more dry or flaky. Not only can this affect how it looks, but you may also find that it itches or burns. Using a good quality moisturiser could help your skin to retain some of the water and nutrients that it needs to stay healthy. This moisturiser may also act as a barrier, stopping the harsh weather from affecting your skin too much. Using a gentler method of cleaning your skin, and avoiding showers that are too hot or cold, may also be important.
Looking after your skin can be quite important, especially if you live in an area with harsher climates. Thinking about the day ahead can allow you to plan your choices for both outfits and your overall skincare routine. In addition to this, some types of cosmetic surgery may assist with removing or minimising the existing signs of damage.
