How to take care of our health in winter

During winter, factors such as the harsher weather with low temperatures and greater dryness of the air, and the use of heating systems, can cause our health to suffer. Here is a series of tips to take care of our health and well-being during this time of year:

  • Be careful when using heating: in many places, the intense cold of winter makes the use of heating essential. However, we should be careful not to turn the heating too high, since the excessive heat and the dryness that it causes can negatively affect our health.

    In addition, special care must be taken when using combustion heating systems to avoid dangerous situations, making sure that they are in good condition and have an adequate gas outlet to the outside. More information on how to prevent health problems related to heating.

  • Take care of our diet: changes in temperature and fewer daylight hours in winter can lower our defenses and make us more vulnerable to infections, as well as lower our energy and mood. Eating the right diet will help us strengthen our immune system while keeping us healthy and energetic. Here are some food tips for winter.

Lastly, if you are thinking of undergoing an aesthetic treatment, remember that winter is the ideal time for it, since colder temperatures make postoperative recovery easier and faster, since it is more comfortable to wear the bandages during the postoperative period and it is easier to minimize exposure to the sun (which is especially important during the postoperative period of facial rejuvenation treatments, for example), among other advantages.
