Unfortunately, not all jobs are equal in skin health. One of the worst jobs for the skin involves chemicals and other hazardous materials that cause skin irritation, wrinkles, dryness, and other problems.
Recent research has shown that workers in the scientific and pharmaceutical industries have the most skin problems. Employees often work late or night shifts or air-conditioned environments, all of which can lead to dry skin. If you work in this industry, you should use moist creams.
On the other hand, working outdoors in the sun and sometimes without enough protection can lead to sunburn and premature aging.
Are you under a lot of stress at work? It can also impact your skin. Many factors, such as air conditioning, artificial light, unhealthy food, and staring at a computer screen for hours, can affect the appearance of the skin.
1 THE OFFICE. It is alarming that you spend most of your day sitting down, and the average person has four devices between smartphones, tablets, and PCs. You look at your phone up to 150 times a day. These are both signs of a sedentary lifestyle and a cause of wrinkles.
People who spend a lot of time in front of computers are at risk of developing what is known as “smartphone wrinkles” on the forehead and sides of the eyes, caused by repeated contractions of the facial muscles.
Another common difficulty for people who spend a lot of time in front of a computer is prematurely aging the skin due to the blue light of digital screens, with light intensities up to 1,000 times higher than the visual comfort threshold. Poor posture makes you more likely to get overweight or have cellulite.
2 OUTDOORS. Those who lead an outdoor life benefit from contact with nature, but constantly expose their face and hands to the aggression of the sun, wind, cold, and water. If we add to this pollution, there will be premature aging, with well-marked wrinkles, discolored, inelastic skin, and consequently, little toned. You need to take care of your skin, using sunscreen and a diet rich in antioxidants.
