With every seasonal change, there is a change in the environment that can impact the health and appearance of the skin. It is important that patients consider reevaluating their skincare products with each shift in the season to ensure their skin looks its best and stays hydrated. Due to the drop in humidity during the winter months, patients may experience dryness in their skin and find it difficult to keep the skin moisturized. This is a great time to talk about the care of winter skin and the possibility of changing to certain products that can help!
Why does skin dry out in the winter?
The change in moisture in the atmosphere, more commonly known as humidity, is what causes patients to experience a change in hydration of their skin. they may experience more dry skin that cracks or bleeds that may not be related to a medical dermatology concern. Our team at the Skin and Beauty Center will often recommend the use of moisturizers to keep the water locked into the skin and provide a block against harsher, drier air.
