The surrounding environment affects the skin
Skincare needs to be different by job and occupation

The surrounding environment affects the skin, so there are different skin problems by occupation. Representatively, there are differences depending on the amount of UV exposure, makeup habits, and level of exposure to pollutants, so skincare needs to be different depending on the work environment, such as office workers, field workers, and production workers. Let me introduce the skincare know-how for each occupation that will help restore vitality to dull skin.

In offices, it is dry due to air conditioning and heating, ventilation must be done frequently, and it is advisable to maintain appropriate indoor humidity through a humidifier. If there is a lot of dust, it is best to minimize dust through an air purifier. It is good to pay attention to regular moisturizing care. (This image is unrelated to the article's content.)

An office worker works in dried condition through air conditioning and heating.

If heating and cooling are continued in a closed space, the humidity decreases, and the space becomes dry. For this reason, the amount of moisture and sebum secretion in the skin decreases, the skin becomes rough and sensitive, fine wrinkles increase and skin elasticity decreases. In addition, dry skin causes inflammation inside the skin, making it easy to have skin problems. There is a lot of dust in closed spaces, so if you have a dust allergy or atopic dermatitis, your symptoms may worsen, and if your skin is sensitive, other types of dermatitis may occur. If the temperature difference between indoors and outdoors is severe, facial flushing may occur.

Overseas salespeople and flight assistants with frequent overseas trips and long-distance movement. 

A flight is also dry like a general office because it is a closed space so the skin can become sensitive due to dry conditions and rapid changes in pressure. Overseas salespeople and flight assistants spend a long time with makeup on, and they may not be able to wash their face properly on time, which can lead to skin problems. Sometimes, moisturizing mist is sprayed while wearing makeup, but dirty substances or cosmetics attached to the skin may penetrate the skin and worsen skin problems. Some use mist-containing oil because it is too dry, but excessive use can cause acne.

Dr. Ha-Eun Lee, a founder of Fore Dermatology Clinic, explained, "The biggest problem with jobs that involve a lot of long-distance trips is maintaining makeup for a long time. Although it is difficult, it is important to wash the face in between. Flight assistants visit a clinic because there are limitations in managing skin conditions on board. It may be more helpful to regularly visit a clinic and get care rather than daily care."

Outdoor workers 

Outdoor workers are exposed to many UV rays, such as at amusement parks, construction sites, and agricultural and fisheries in industries. They can get sunburned, and their skin can become blotchy or have blemishes or dark spots. Photoaging can occur regardless of age. Fine dust is a serious problem with UV rays. If you stay outdoors for a long time on a day with severe fine dust, folliculitis or skin problems may worsen, although not immediately, after a few days.

Suppose you have red or burning skin due to excessive exposure to UV rays. In that case, you can prevent the symptoms from worsening by seeing a doctor early and getting sunburn treatment such as ointment or oral medication. It is necessary to wear a mask and maintain your skin barrier by applying plenty of moisturizing regularly to prevent exposure to fine dust. It is important to apply sunscreen well to prevent pigment disease and photoaging. If you sweat a lot, sunscreen can easily come off, so it is a good idea to reapply it often, but it is also a good idea to use a waterproof sunscreen that adheres well to the skin.

If you use sunscreen, you need double cleansing. After emulsifying it with cleansing water or oil, wipe it off with lukewarm water and use a foam cleanser to create a lot of foam so as not to irritate the skin and gently wipe it off. You may use a vibrating cleanser or scrub your face with a scrub. However, aggressive cleansing can break down the skin barrier and make your skin sensitive, so you should avoid rubbing your skin vigorously with tools or washing your face with a cleanser with strong cleansing power.

If you have dermatitis symptoms, you should see a doctor immediately and get treatment. Nevertheless, if symptoms recur, you should take extra care to protect your skin, such as wearing a mask or safety goggles. (This image is unrelated to the article's content.)

Production and factory workers exposed to harmful substances such as fine dust and heavy metals.

If chemical ingredients irritate the skin through the air, irritate contact dermatitis may occur, resulting in itchy or stinging symptoms. If you have a pre-existing allergy to heavy metals or pollutants, your skin may develop severe allergic contact dermatitis. Dr. Ha-Eun Lee said, "If you have dermatitis symptoms, you should see a doctor immediately and get treatment. Nevertheless, if symptoms recur, you should take extra care to protect your skin, such as wearing a mask or safety goggles."

Broadcasting and entertainment workers exposed to strong lighting and thick makeup. 

Skin aging is accelerated when the skin is exposed to thermal stimulation, such as strong lighting, that causes it to burn. Therefore, you should avoid lighting when you are not filming and allow your skin to rest. There are sunscreen products that protect the skin from heat stimulation and have a cooling effect, so using them may be helpful.

If you get makeup from a professional shop, they can use products you don't use, which can easily cause skin problems, so it is a good idea to wash your face right away when your work is done. It is important to shorten the makeup maintenance time. It is best to pay attention to maintenance, such as applying moisturizing well and washing your face thoroughly to give your skin a rest.

Dr. Lee advised, "Occupations that expose a lot of UV rays may cause pigmentation on the skin, so it is recommended to get skin scaling periodically to increase the turnover of dead skin cells or get ionzyme whitening treatment that penetrates highly concentrated vitamin C." and "If you have freckles, blemishes or facial flushing, I recommend laser treatments for pigment, vascular. If your wrinkles deepen due to photoaging, botulinum toxin or regenerative treatment will be helpful."

What kind of clinical solutions exist? 

Office workers and flight attendants tend to have dry skin, so LDM(called water drop lifting) or Sono-Styler are recommended to keep the skin barrier healthy. These devices can keep the skin moist, reduce inflammation inside the skin, and make the skin barrier healthy. If you want to manage your skin more actively, you can get an injection, which involves injecting hyaluronic acid into the dermis.

In some occupations where skin elasticity declines quickly, it is best to start early treatment focusing on botulinum toxin or skin regeneration laser. It is better to get treatment early than after skin elasticity has rapidly decreased or aging has progressed.
