7 Steps to Winter-Proof your Skin

Winter. The season of snow, new boots, hot chocolate and quality time spent by the fire!

Unfortunately, it’s not always cozy for Winter Skin Care, warm fun as it can also bring about dry, cold air which in turn

creates problem skin! Here are some great tips to fend off flaky, cracked skin and hydrate properly for that healthy glow:

  1. Stay Hydrated. 50-75% of our bodies is made up of water! Lack of hydration may cause dry and flaky skin, especially during the winter months. If you have a hard time getting in your water, try to set a goal of drinking 8oz first thing when you wake up and keep a water bottle with you all day!
  2. Moisturize Daily. Applying a moisturizer frequently throughout the day can make the skin softer, smoother, and less likely to crack. Also, moisturize right after baths and showers. This will help to lock in moisture while the skin is still damp.
  3. Avoid HOT Water. Hot water certainly feels great during these cold winter months but it can remove your natural skin oils more quickly resulting in dry skin. Use lukewarm water for hand and face washing and when taking bath or showers.
  4. Use a humidifier. Winter not only brings on the cold air, it also brings on dry air! Using a humidifier in your home to add moisture to the air can help hydrate your skin naturally.
  5. Exfoliate 1x week. Exfoliating can help get rid of dead skin cells to reveal the new skin underneath. Using a gentle scrub during the winter months to remove dull skin cells can help you have a healthy glow.
  6. Cover up when outside. The harsh wind and temperatures can rob your skin of moisture. In the cold, wear a scarf and gloves to help prevent chapped lips and hands.
  7. Don’t over-cleanse. If you have very dry skin, cleanse your face just once a day.  Nighttime is usually the best. In the morning, just rinse your face with cool water. Harsh soaps can strip oils from the skin. Look for either a mild, fragrance-free soap or a soap substitute that moisturizes.

Don’t forget: Dry skin is a common skin issue that can occur at any age. However, sometimes skin care basics just aren’t enough. If you have extremely dry skin that just won’t go away, you may have a skin problem called dermatitis or eczema which will need the attention of a medical professional or it could potentially get worse.

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.


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.


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.

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.
