As fall turns to winter, a person’s skin has different needs than it did in the warmer months. The air in winter dries out and becomes cold causing moisture to pull from the skin. Add to that the drying effects of central heating and fireplaces that are in high use during the winter season. With so little moisture in the air, the top layer of skin cells flattens and isn’t as capable of adding the protection people need. Skin gets tight, dry, itchy and flaky.

Especially under attack in winter are faces, necks, ears and hands as they are less likely to be constantly covered by scarves, hats and gloves. In severe cases, dry skin can crack and bleed. Skin that is lacking moisture dulls a person’s overall presence and complexion. Try these tips for proactive care and maintenance and to restore skin’s luminosity, health, and radiance.

  • Reduce exfoliation – exfoliation is good to slough off the dead skin, but too much can be harsh on winter skin.
  • Increase moisturizing by using hydration boosting products – oil-based products or night creams rather than water-based products tend to be more beneficial in winter weather.
  • Don’t forget sunscreen – UV rays are present even when skies are gloomy or dark in winter.
  • Use more natural products – skin care products with more emollient replenish skin’s moisture.
  • Drink more water – add water back to your body by ensuring that you drink plenty of it.
  • Exercise– to keep skin glowing, exercise to increase circulation and blood flow.
  • Don’t take too hot showers – lipid barriers in skin can be compromised by baths or showers that are too hot or too long. Lukewarm water should be used during face washing and bathing.

At Medical Dermatology Specialists, Dr. Jamie Weisman and the entire team of dermatology specialists are passionate about your skin. From years of experience, we offer practical solutions to treat winter skin problems and restore your skin’s healthy glow.

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.

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.
