Office Skincare Defense: "Skincare-News.com" Presents Skin Protection Tips for the Workplace

SACRAMENTO, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 27, 2011) - Professional women work hard at their jobs and often don't have time to pay attention to the effects that the office environment can have on their skin. But germs, sun damage and dry air are all a part of daily life in the office. Skincare-News.com's latest article, "Skin Protection in the Workplace: How to Defend Skin from Office Beauty Hazards," offers tips for defending skin from this type of damage in the workplace.

An office desk can harbor more germs and bacteria than a bathroom. Unfortunately, a busy professional woman doesn't have time to wash her hands every time a coworker coughs or sneezes. How can she avoid getting sick in a less than clean workplace?

Preventing dehydrated skin is tough for those who spend their days surrounded by office air. Air conditioning in the summer, dry heat all winter -- it's easy for the skin to become a desert of flaky skin cells. Most lotions won't last long enough to combat the dry air, so what can a woman do to keep her skin moisturized?

It might be hard to believe, but sun damage can happen anytime -- even at the office. According to US News, sunlight passes through windows and can expose the skin to the same harmful rays as a trip to the beach. But is it possible to shield skin in the workplace without slathering on layers of sunscreen each day before work?

Find answers to all these questions and much more on defending skin from workplace damage, including solutions for nourishing dry hands and refreshing skin midday, at Skincare-News.com.
