You have skin that is very similar to the females but you are not taking care of it as you should be. This is very true when it comes to winter and the effects that this season can have on all skin.
There is a reason why your mother always told you to wear a scarf and hat and it was not just because of the cold and you get sick. The fact of the matter is that the winter season is one of the most dangerous times for your skin and it needs to be dealt with in its own way.
Let’s take a look at the winter season and see the different effects that it can have on the skin.
The sun is the most dangerous through the winter months. There is really no reason why you should consider the sun to be less dangerous other than the fact that it is cold outside. The fact of the matter is that the snow that has fallen around the area makes the sun a perfect weapon for turning your skin into something horrible.
The suns rays are reflected off of the snow and that gives them further power. So instead of getting just one assault, you are actually getting hit twice as hard.
From the point of view of the weather, you should note that winds are always higher during the winter. This can cause severe windburn because the skin is very prone to such things. Windburn is actually worse than sunburn because it cause more damage than the sun as well as higher levels of pain that you may not be used to with the sunburn.
The first order of business when you are planning on spending a fair amount of time outdoors in the winter is sun block. This again may sound very strange but it is completely and totally necessary.
Make sure that the sun block that you are using has a very high UV rating to prevent the burn from happening. To ensure that you are completely covered you should apply the sun block before you get dressed making it possible to cover everything without missing a spot or two.
You also need to make sure that you are staying covered up. A face mask is a good idea. If a face mask is not available then you need to make sure that you have a scarf covering the face. This will make sure that you are preventing the wind and the sun from gaining access to this very sensitive part of the body and making it burn.
