Winter Proof Your Skin

If Jack Frost has been nipping at your nose, leaving your skin dry and irritated, Dr. M has a few tips to help you winter proof your skin and keep you glowing!

Baths + Showers:
We all love long baths, but prolonged hot water can dry out your skin. Instead, try a warm 10-minute shower once daily and don’t scrub too vigorously.

Soaps + Cleansers:
Keep your cleansing to a minimum and use a mild soap (like Dove) or a gentle soapless cleanser such as CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser or Cetaphil Restoraderm.

Immediately following your shower, gently pat skin dry and moisturize with a supple lotion or cream. Some of my favorites include CeraVe Moisturizing Cream, Epionce Extreme Barrier Cream, Aveeno and Eucerin.

For extreme dryness, a germ-free humidifier or vaporizer in the bedroom can really help.

Keep your hands soft by moisturizing after hand washing, wearing gloves outdoors, and don’t forget the rubber gloves when you’re cleaning up.

Don’t forget to apply sunscreen every day—in all seasons, in all weather. Make it part of your daily routine. Your skin is particularly susceptible to sun damage in the snow, so apply early and often!
