Have you been diagnosed with a illness that someone else was responsible for? For example you may have dermatitis because of chemicals in your working environment. Or perhaps you have had an accident that you can prove was the fault of another person. If you have been injured in any way through no fault of your own, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. Contact us at Accident Advice Helpline and get advice from one of our expert injury solicitors in Finchley now.
Avoid work-related skin problems
Certain jobs and environments are harsher on your skin than others. Your skin may also react to being in an environment that it is not used to, by developing a condition. In many cases these skin conditions will not be dangerous or particularly painful, but they can be irritating and unsightly and cause you a lot of stress. You should go to a doctor if you have a skin problem that you are concerned about, but the best way to deal with skin problems is to avoid them in the first place, so here are some ways to avoid this at work.
- Look at your work environment. Things like air conditioning and a lack of natural air and light can cause skin conditions. If you feel that you are working in an unnatural environment and that this may contribute to skin problems then speak to your employer to see what can be done.
- Take lots of breaks. Take a break as often as you can to go outside and get some fresh air. You can also use this time to stretch and refocus, helping you with other problems that you may suffer if you sit at a desk for too long.
- Moisturise. Moisturising will help to keep your skin in good condition and stop it drying out in an unnatural environment. Use your moisturiser throughout the day, after you have washed your hands, or to top up when your skin feels dry.
- Get exercise. Exercise helps to keep your body in good shape, which means that it is better prepared to stave of problems and illnesses, as well as skin conditions. Get regular exercise and stay hydrated as you do so and you should soon see the difference in your skin.
