Schedule your skiing before 10 a.m. or Dermacort Skin Cream Review after 4 p.m. to decrease your exposure to UVB rays. Although UVB rays decrease in the winter months, UVA rays remain constant from dawn to dusk and all year long, so wearing sunscreen is still very important. Avoiding peak sun hours will diminish your sun damage risk to UVB, so staying indoors mid-day is a benefit. Role-model good self care to make the process easier for your children. In addition to dressing in layers to insulate for warmth and taking breaks to drink water to avoid dehydration, apply sunscreen to all exposed areas.
If your kids see that sun protection is important to you- and you discuss the health risks of sun damage with them- they will emulate your behavior and understand why it's important. Wear sun-protective clothing as an easy way to guard your skin. If you're not wearing a ski helmet, a sun-protective cap will protect the skin on your scalp. And UV-protective eye wear is a must. Not only will your family be more comfortable skiing without the glare and cold assaulting their eyes, it will save their eyes from damage. Sun exposure increases the likelihood of certain forms of cataracts, according to the World Health Organization, and snow blindness is also a concern.
If possible, wear a sun-protective ski mask to protect your face. Be sure the mask allows adequate visibility. Your kids may think it's fun to wear one, too, or they may complain and refuse. But remind them that they must choose either a ski mask or plenty of sunscreen.Harsh cold weather and dry indoor heat can take its toll on skin this time of year - wind chaps skin & lips, cold temps flush the skin, dilates capillaries and your skin looks red. For the hyper-sensitive complexion it's never ending eczema, psoriasis, or rosacea. Sound familiar?
