The scientists believe that the main reason that causes skin damage and skin aging is the sunshine. Tibet, located on the highest plateau, has a very dry climate, low oxygen content, much dust and strong ultraviolet rays, which may easily hurt your skin. Therefore, when you travel in Tibet, skin care becomes very important and necessary for you, especially if you are a woman. Then how to protect your skin in Tibet?
First, sunglasses and a hat is necessary for your Tibet tour. The hat should be in right size and it is not supposed to be very tight when putting on your head, or it may have your forehead decorated with pimples.
Second, use sun cream with good quality and its SPF should be higher than 15. Before going out, use some sun cream 10 minutes earlier. And during your trip outside, use sun cream every one or two hours as your sweats may weaken the effect of the sun cream. Meanwhile, pay special attention to protect your lips, for your lips may easily chap. A good lipstick is highly recommended to you.
Third, eat more fruits and vegetables. Probably, you can only have them in Lhasa, the capital city of Tibet, for fruits and vegetables are in poor supply in Tibet.
Fourth, it is suggested that washing your face at night while not doing so in the morning shall protect your skin. And if you need to be outside for a long time, let’s say, more than 10days, then, you’d better not wash your face if good sanitary condition is not available. Sometimes, your dirty face may protect itself from the damage of the sun. Some people also advice that butter can be used on your face to protect it and it is pretty helpful. So, if necessary, try some, better dirty than hurt.
Last bur not least, maintaining a good mood is also very helpful to protect your skin. So be happy and be strong no matter how harsh the environment may be.
