For many people, the cooler winter months are not so friendly when it comes to our skin. While you might see some people dealing with Jack Frost a little easier with just some cute rosy cheeks, the rest of us are struggling with dryness, peeling and tightness in our skin! So what do those people know that we don’t?!

It’s possible they have correctly altered their skin care regimen to accommodate the drop in temperature. Sometimes using the same moisturizer or following the same cleansing methods we did in the summer is only going to contribute to the overall winter dryness.

However, we don’t need to over-complicate the process, there are very simple changes you can make to help you have the healthy skin you’ve been longing for this winter:

HOLD THE HEAT: Lay off the scorching hot water when washing your face or bathing. Switch to lukewarm water which will help prevent drying out your skin. Speaking of heat, the winter months not only affect your skin but it can make our hair more dry and brittle as well. Try not to dry your hair every day and definitely be mindful of other hair tools that add heat to your hair!

MOISTURIZE AFTER EVERY WASH: Moisturizing is a given when it comes to skin care but are you waiting too long to put it on after washing? Whether it be your face, hands or body, add lotion or cream immediately after washing to help hold in moisture. You may need to switch to a thicker lotion for the cooler weather. Hopefully this will help prevent against peeling and cracking!

APPLY SUNSCREEN: Yes, even in the winter time! The sun is still out and about sharing its UVA and UVB rays year round, which means you need to protect yourself year round! If you get a winter sunburn, just imagine the amount of peeling and dryness you would experience. No thanks! Look for a moisturizer that has at least 30 SPF. Here are our sunscreen suggestions!

HYDRATE: Did you know up to 60% of our body is water? Many of our organs are primarily made up of water and you know what your skin is? The biggest organ on your body! Therefore, if you are dehydrated you can start to see those side effects in your skin, so hydrate from the inside out! Your skin will thank youJ!

 

We hope these tips will help you have healthy hydrated skin this winter but if you need some more tips and suggestions, always schedule an appointment with your dermatologist!

Botox®

BOTOX® and Dysport are neuromodulators. These types of facial injectables target the muscles responsible for facial expressions. By temporarily blocking nerve signals, they relax these muscles, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines caused by repetitive muscle contractions.

Fillers

Cosmetic fillers offer a non-surgical way to enhance facial features and restore youthful volume. Since many visible signs of aging can be traced back to volume loss, fillers can help replace what is lost to help restore a more youthful appearance. We offer the complete line of Juvederm Fillers.

Injectables

Aesthetic injectables are minimally invasive cosmetic treatments that involve injecting various substances beneath the skin to achieve a range of aesthetic goals. They can target aspects of facial aging, addressing concerns like wrinkles and fine lines, loss of facial volume, & uneven skin texture.

CoolSculpting® Elite

CoolSculpting is a proven technology that is safe and effective. It is proven to work extremely well and rivals surgical results with little to no downtime. Cryolipolysis, or freezing fat; gently and effectively reduces unwanted fat by up to 25% or more per session. Freeze fat & tone muscle.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a commonly used cosmetic procedure that utilizes concentrated beams of highly focused light to eradicate hair on various parts of the body. This method targets the hair follicles, damaging them to the extent that hair is unlikely to grow in that spot again.

Laser Resurfacing

Fractional laser resurfacing is the most effective laser treatment available for wrinkle reduction. At Dermablue, we brought the best possible technology for laser resurfacing to Asheville using the CORE CO2 fractional laser. Fractional laser resurfacing is the most effective laser treatment.
