Salt baths stay away from diary maybe get a uv light stay away from takeaways and just keep generally fit and healthy.

Take a umbrella

Yep you're going to need something to replace those 365 days of sun, uv light is a good idea but be careful not to overdo it, I had NHS light treatment and they were very strict about the amount they gave you, above all Good Luck

I live in the UK and the weather is terrible (my region anyway) winters are crap for P, so double the moisturising. Think we get about 2-3 weeks of hot sun a year :( good luck on your move!

Thank you everyone. been in the UK for almost 2 months now. My P looks good. Sometimes red and 2-3 extra spots (I think) but its okay. Will see how it goes during Winter. I'm still using my Linotar cream and it helps . The climate change might affect my P but I'm staying positive. As long as I am healthy then I'm happy. I started a new job as well and with the heating on in the building and wearing a mask for 8 hours a day is not nice but I guess I have to get used to it. The weather has been nice so far and Im still loving the rain :) We talk again in a year about the weather lol.
