How do you protect yourself, your skin from the winter sun, or any other season? Follow these simple sun safety action steps recommended by the US Environmental Protection Agency.
Moisturizing is beneficial for skin health and reducing microbial dispersion from skin, regardless of whether the product used contains an antibacterial ingredient. Lotions used with products containing chlorhexidine gluconate must be carefully selected to avoid neutralization by anionic surfactants.
The key to protecting skin is moisturizing on a daily basis. Dry skin ages faster, so it's essential to keep properly hydrated at all times.
The two main causes for dry skin are environmental factors (weather, chemicals, the use of the wrong personal care products) and poor diet. It's possible to have better looking skin starting with things you already have in your home; no cosmetic surgery or expensive makeup required.
The skin has a defence mechanism against sun-damage, in the form of melanin. The production of melanin is accelerated on sun-exposure. Avoidance of the sun, specially at midday and in the afternoon, when ultraviolet radiation is at its height, can help to reduce the harmful effects.
Just as winter weather makes us pay special attention to our skin, summer with its sun and heat has its requirements too. People with dry sensitive skin may notice that sun causes more dryness and irritation.
