Dry Skin...Long Winter
Quick tips to avoid dry itchy skin this winter.
First do not take long hot showers. This is the quickest way to dry your skin, especially in the winter. It is made worse by the dry artificial air from central heating.
Second, use skin hydrating products. Some require simple moisturizers, others may need topical steroid creams if severe.
I also feel that products with fragrances and many of preservatives irritate skin, for some a great deal.
More skin care...
There are more products available today then every before, all claiming to be the fountain of youth. Unfortunately, no such single potion truly exits. There is hope, however. With a thoughtfully designed program, the effects of acne, aging, and the sun can be address very effectively. Skin health can be achieved.
There are some basic principles that need to applied. First appropriate cleansing and toning of your skin. Oily skin and dry skin require different care. After cleaning, your skin needs to be exfoliated to remove the outer dead cells. Many individuals also require a bleaching agent. The next step is to stimulate blood flow and collagen orginazation. This is perhaps the most important. Many patients benefit from products such as Vit C or Retin A. Finally, sun protection. The effects of sun exposure, as well as tanning beds, can be devasting to skin….increasing the risk of skin cancer and accelerating the aged appearance.
