Winter skin. No matter what part of the world you live in, we all experience own version of the effects of winter on our skin in one way or another. But like with anything else, it’s how you react to your winter skin problems that make all the difference!

This winter season, keep the hydration, lose the irritation, and ensure your skin looks as fabulous as ever!

At Precision Skin Institute, one of the best dermatology centers in south Florida, one would assume we don’t see our fair share of dry skin during the winter months. This is sunny Florida, after all.

But the truth is, even the slightest changes in our atmosphere, our air temperature, and our humidity levels can be enough to wreak havoc on our skin. The humidity down in Precision Skin Institute’s part of the world serves as a really great way to keep skin looking hydrated and feeling good, but here in the south Florida area, we typically see a drop in humidity levels between November and March, causing our skin to appear drier, and even red, flaky and irritated.

Not to mention what happens when you aren’t an inhabitant of an area with such mild temperature changes! People who are experiencing winter at its worst, with freezing temperatures and snow storms, are really in desperate need of some skin-saving tips and love, and Precision Skin Institute is your one-stop-shop for all things healthy skin.

Here are some of the BEST skin-saving tips for Winter:

  1. Use a humidifier and hydrate from the inside out.
    In areas of the world where you experience severe drops in temperature and humidity levels, you can save your skin while you sleep! Bring a humidifier into your bedroom and crank it up to ensure your skin gets the hydration it needs to stay supple and soft. Additionally, boost the hydration factor by making sure you’re drinking plenty of water on a daily basis.
  2. Exfoliate
    Dryer skin means lots of flakes, and an easy way to shed the dead skin is by exfoliating. Find an exfoliating mask that is right for your skin type and use it on your face, neck, hands, and any other part of your body that can use some freshening up!
  3. Be gentle
    Often times, people associate harsh cleansers, exfoliation products, and toners to be more effective than their more gentle opponents. The key to keeping skin health in winter is switching to gentler cleansers and skin products to avoid dehydrating your skin with harsh soaps.
