During this time of year, seasonal elements and environmental changes can take a harsh toll on exposed skin – with the neck, face, arms, and legs bearing most of the ill effects.
In the Midwest, wintertime temperatures can easily plunge below freezing without much in the way of precipitation to add moisture to the air. At the same time, the heaters in the workplace and at home are working overtime to beat back the cold air that has settled over the region. Both of these environmental changes are equally hard on exposed skin and can easily lead to issues with dryness and irritation. In addition, chilly temperatures and low humidity can exacerbate many existing skin conditions to the point of serious frustration. So, if your skin is feeling unnaturally dry, and you’re constantly moisturizing, you’re not alone.
By the time April comes around, and the weather finally starts to improve, many of us are still battling issues with dry skin and a host of related issues. Regrettably, some masks and exfoliants only compound problems by further drying out the skin. Fortunately, many are finding a little relief right around tax time. That’s right, tax time.
Who would think that the tax season would be a boon to our personal health and wellness? Tax season is typically seen as a time when all those little receipts and tax forms collected over the year are finally turned into the IRS in exchange for a nice little refund. According to tax professionals across the nation, the refunds for the 2012 tax season are expected to be in the $2,700 to $2,900 range. A fair sum of money, no doubt. And for those who have been anticipating the windfall from their tax return as an opportunity to do a little something special for themselves, this may be the perfect time to schedule a skin care evaluation and learn about a number of face and skin rejuvenation procedures.
