Side Profile of Male Patient with Eczema Atlanta GA

Chronic skin disorders are challenging to manage throughout the winter months. Rosacea is a chronic skin disorder that is especially difficult during winter because many patients have flare-ups when the air is cold and dry. Unfortunately, we cannot control the weather. Still, there are steps that you can take to alleviate your discomfort and work to avoid an episode of seasonal rosacea.

Rosacea is characterized by redness and bumps that generally appear across the cheeks, chin, and forehead. More common in women than men, this “blushing” condition can come and go based on environmental factors and conditions.

During the winter season, you can help protect your skin from triggers by:

  • Wearing sunscreen. Sun exposure is the leading trigger for rosacea. People often forget that the sun still shines in winter, thus neglecting to wear protective sunscreen. Wearing an SPF of 30 each day will help to protect your skin from harmful UV rays and rosacea flare-ups.
  • Moisturize your skin. Just as wearing sunscreen daily is important, keeping your skin hydrated is also imperative. Your dermatologist can provide you with an effective facial lotion that is safe for rosacea suffers.
  • Drink a lot of water. You can add moisture to your skin from the inside out. By drinking plenty of water each day, your skin will remain hydrated.
  • Avoid hot beverages. While curling up with a hot cup of coffee, tea, or cocoa is often desired during cold weather, hot drinks can intensify facial blood vessels and lead to flushing.
  • Control your home environment. Central heating is often run continuously during cold temperatures. This heating method may heat up your home, but it also dries out the air. It is a good idea to keep your home at a moderate temperature and use a humidifier to moisten the air.
  • Wear wind protection. Wind is a top trigger for those with rosacea. Make it a habit to wear a scarf or an oversized hood regularly to shield your sensitive facial skin when you go outside.

At Medical Dermatology Specialists, we offer proven and effective treatments for rosacea. Contact us to schedule an appointment.

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.
