Acne Treatment Atlanta GA

With less moisture in the air during the winter months, acne breakouts can become more severe. Holiday treats and hot showers can make matters worse. There are a few things you can do to prevent this irritating skin condition from affecting your daily life and self-confidence. Here are three tips to care for your winter acne to achieve clearer skin.

Gently Cleanse and Exfoliate
Changes in temperature can dry out your skin and cause it to flake. When your skin is dry, dead skin cells and bacteria can cling to the surface and clog pores. Use lukewarm water to gently cleanse your skin twice daily to prevent winter acne breakouts. Exfoliate your skin once a week to prevent clogged pores.

Cleansing and exfoliating your skin more often can dry out your skin and worsen winter acne. Look for hydrating skin care cleansers made for sensitive skin that are free from fragrance and harsh ingredients. Apply a light moisturizer after washing to give your skin a protective barrier against the elements.

Keep Items Away from Your Face
If you do experience a winter acne breakout, avoid touching your face to pick at blemishes. This can inflame your dry skin and lead to infection. Make sure articles of clothing like scarfs, hats and coats are regularly washed before wearing to prevent the accumulation of bacteria. Change your pillowcases at least once a week to help keep your skin clean.

Consume a Healthy Diet
During the winter holiday season, it can be tempting to reach for comfort foods filled with dairy and sugar. Loading up on fresh fruits and vegetables can give you the nutrients you need for healthy glowing skin this winter and reduce winter acne breakouts. Instead of drinking coffee or hot chocolate to stay warm, enjoy a hot cup of green tea with honey to your taste.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.
Jeffery D.
Dr. Weisman is a great doctor! She was very informative and personally! Her staff were very welcoming as well I'm glad I found her because she is the only doctor who truly explained what was going with me.
Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
