Chilly winter months are the perfect time for cozy sweaters, hot cocoa, and bonfires. Unfortunately, it’s also a time when one’s skin can suffer. At The Dermatology Clinic, we want our patient’s skin to be healthy all year long. Here are five winter skin care tips for great skin.
1. Maintain Your Facial Care Regimen
It’s crucial that one should keep up with their skin care throughout the year. Our qualified staff at The Dermatology Clinic will help develop the perfect skin care plan for every patient. We’ll recommend products specifically tailored their needs.
2. Stay Moisturized
Cold weather brings lower humidity, meaning the skin gets less moisture from the environment. The whole body needs extra moisture to keep the skin from looking dull. If a patient is struggling with dryness, a dermatologist may recommend a prescription ointment or cream for winter skin care.
3. Pamper Skin With a Spa Treatment
It takes a little extra work to look the best in the harsh winter months. Consider a visit to an aesthetician for a facial treatment or even an injectable filler. This will freshen up one’s look and give a boost that will last through the spring.
4. Keep Wearing Sunscreen
Some believe that they only need sunscreen in the summer, but everyone should be protecting their skin with SPF all year. At The Dermatology Clinic, we offer a specially formulated line of products with SPF that will keep winter skin care protected throughout the season.
5. Protect Against Skin Conditions
Dryer weather can lead to more susceptible conditions, such as acne and eczema, but there’s no need to spend the whole season suffering. Visit The Dermatology Clinic for a laser treatment, which is also called light therapy. This targeted approach treats only the inflicted area, so it’s ideal for winter when the skin needs to be more protected.
