Staying in the snow is healthy and comfortable for your body and mind. Dress up in layers (to keep the body warm), keep in the strong winter sun, avoid alcohol and engage in any physical activity. Snow improves the general condition of our body. Staying in the snow in an open space (where there are no cars) relaxes, relieves accumulated stress, improves circulation, improves breathing and speeds up metabolism. The sun is more dangerous in winter than in summer. Radiation is enhanced by reflections of sunlight in the snow. When you are out in the cold, the capillaries shrink. When you enter a warm room, the capillaries increase rapidly. This makes capillaries easier to break in winter. People with cuprose or rosacea (skin conditions related to capillary weakness) should take extra care. Special creams should be used to strengthen blood vessels and avoid temperature changes (if possible).
The cold consumes more energy and it is important to dress warmly. If you feel cold you will feel tired very quickly. Frostbite is another risk if you do not have adequate clothing in the cold
Hand protection during cold winter days is an aesthetic and health problem. In addition to the face most important to UV protection, the hands are exposed to cold, wind and constant temperature changes. The skin dries and shoots more than normal. Chapped and dehydrated skin becomes susceptible to infections, eczema and irritation. Protective hand cream with occasional exfoliation is always a good help. After applying hand cream and exfoliation, apply regeneration serum and nourishing cream. Then put any paraffin packs on your hands or gloves. Keep the skin absorbed for a while so that all the nutrients are absorbed.
Eye and face protection
Make sure you apply a high protection factor cream to your face. For sunny winter days, wear sunglasses or prescription sunglasses. The dried skin on the face needs a cream with more oily components. Use ear straps. Keep gloves of the highest quality and warm. A common companion to winter days is herpes on the lips or nose (i.e. fever), especially if you are prone to this viral disease. It occurs with colds, flu, exhaustion and any decline in immunity. It begins with redness and burning sensation on the lips and continues with grouped blisters that quickly burst and create scabs. Oily Labello or oily lip grease is most effective if you put it on as soon as the redness appears. This prevents blisters from appearing in milder form.
On-site snow injuries that can be repaired:
When walking on ice or icy surfaces there are often stretching or twisting of muscles, falls on snow or ligament injury.
Use the standard speed procedure:
-It is important to keep the muscle from further injury.
– place the ice in the injured area to reduce blood flow by collecting blood vessels. This will reduce swelling and pain. You should not hold the ice for more than 20 minutes.
– bandaging the injured part of the body reduces swelling. Helps reduce pain.
– lifting up the injured part of the body also reduces the swelling. It is important to raise your leg or arm above heart level.
Foods for staying in the snow
Carbohydrates derived from cereals provide the best energy. An integral bread with honey, yogurt muesli, honey pastries are light and quick-digesting, energy-boosting meals. Warm up with teas or hot chocolate, avoid alcohol. Cooked wine is welcome in the evening with a light meal.
