Improving My Skin

I have always been someone who is incredibly dedicated to protecting my appearance, which is one of the reasons I started visiting with my dermatologist in the first place. I wanted to be able to work with my doctor to keep my skin youthful and beautiful, and before I knew it, he was helping me with everything from wrinkles to adult acne. It has been really incredible to see just how much of a difference great dermatology has made for me, and now I can honestly say that I am committed to a lifetime of great skincare. Check out this website for awesome tips on dermatology.

How To Care For Your Skin This Winter

Your skincare routine this winter should be different than during any other season. Winter is a dryer season, and your skin can also feel and appear tight and dry. Change up your routine to keep your skin supple, hydrated, and in good shape. See below for tips to care for your skin this winter.

Hydrate

Hydration is key in winter, because again, it is a dryer season. You need to drink more water in the winter to help hydrate your skin. Dry skin is also a sign of dehydration, so drink plenty of water. At least 8 - 10 glasses of water should be consumed each day, maybe even more depending on your skin and lifestyle.

Dry Brush

Dry brushing or exfoliating should be done to help remove dry skin. The rubbing motion also helps wake up skin cells and helps regenerate cells. Dry brush two times per week and use a boar-bristle brush. You can find a brush at your local pharmacy or beauty store.

Moisturize

To help hold in moisture, you should use a good moisturizer on your entire body. The moisturizer should feel somewhat thick, not too watery. Apply it evenly all over your body, and use a facial moisturizer on your face. Apply the moisturizer after showering.

Protect

Protect your skin from the sun's harmful UVA and UVB rays, even in winter months. Use a sheer sunscreen on your face, and wear sunglasses in the winter to protect the skin around your eyes. The sun may not be as strong in the winter, but it can be just as harmful to your skin. Always protect your skin when outside, no matter the season.

Sleep

Get enough sleep to help protect and care for your skin. If you aren't getting enough sleep, it can show up in your skin as dark circles, puffy eyes or grey skin-tones. Be sure to go to bed early and get up early. Too much sleep can also be a negative for your skin. Try to get at least 6 - 8 hours of sleep per night.

Eat

What you put in your body will affect your skin, so be sure to eat enough fresh fruits and vegetables throughout winter. It can be hard to turn away all of those sweets throughout winter and through the holidays, but try your best to avoid them. All of those sugary sweets can show up in your skin, so steer clear of the dessert table.

Your skin changes throughout winter, so you will need to change your routine a bit to keep your skin supple and healthy. For more advice, reach out to a dermatologist like those at Refined Dermatology.
