Winter is near the corner! It is a great season for many reasons, from cold weather and snow to trendy hot beverages (such as Starbucks coffee) and, of course…Christmas eve! Everything seems joyful in winter, but it also means the arrival of allergies (for some people), feeling cold, and the main topic of the day, dry skin.
Today our experienced dermatologists will give you tips to prevent dry skin in winter and talk about the latest world-class treatment to achieve hydrated and healthy skin.
Moisture is retained by a layer that holds water in your skin and keeps germs and chemicals out. Our dermatologist Dr. Orly Cheirif says that this layer is like a protective wall…
The skin cells are the wall, and they are held together by many proteins and fats, which are the ones that create a protective barrier.
In winter, when the humidity drops, the dryness in the air goes up, causing the water to escape and make the skin’s ability to retain the moisture, causing evaporation and leading to dry skin. Here is how to prevent or avoid dryness on the skin. Our dermatologist Dr. Orly Cheirif will give you skincare tips.
We know that a hot bath is enjoyable (mainly this season). It can help you to relax and certainly avoid cold. But hot water can dry out your skin, and a long-time shower is more likely to cause dryness than a short shower. There’s no problem when chilling in the tub! Just don’t bathe with boiling water and take a quick shower.
You get rid of the skin’s natural oils when washing your face or body. These oils help to trap moisture. That’s why it’s important to use a moisturizer for dry skin every time you wash, especially in winter.
You might be thinking… sunscreen? It is not a season of beach and sunburns! You are right, but here’s the point, even though UV rays are not intense in the winter, they are still present and can age you. The reflection of the sun’s rays during skiing or doing snowmen can cause you sunburns even if it’s not a sunny day!
A lip balm prevents dry lips from getting burned or chapped during your winter fun. It is recommended to use a hydrating balm every morning and throughout the day to keep the moisture, don’t let chapped lips turn off your glowing skin!
An excess can dehydrate you and your skin! So make sure to limit alcoholic beverages and drink plenty of water. On holidays drinking may be too familiar, be beer, wine, or other drinks.
Exfoliation helps to remove dead skin cells from the skin and keeps your skin looking smooth and beautiful. But it is possible to over-exfoliate your skin if you do it too often or use harsh products. If your skin looks dry, it is better to choose a chemical peel since harsh scrubs may break your moisture barrier.
Emollients are excellent for moisturizing since they can prevent dry skin. However, they are heavier creams than others, and it can take time to absorb them. Applying an emollient to your skin by night will have excellent absorption and give it the moisture and oils it needs.
