Keep your skin Hydrated during the Dry Winter Season
Cold Weather is here, and your skin can feel the effects both from the outside cold and from the heat in your home. At Magnolia Dermatology, we have several products that can help with your skin during the cold. Most of our products can be purchased at our office without an appointment. If you would like a FREE consultation with our Aesthetician, Trista, regarding our products or services and what works best for you, call 601-910-3004 to make an appointment.
Here are several tips we recommend:
Use a humidifier at night in your bedroom – this will help your skin and hair.
After bathing, apply body oil, lotion or cream to your damp skin to help seal in moisture. Keep your showers and baths brief with warm water.
Use lip and hand cream regularly
Use a facial moisturizer, choose one best for your skin type
If you are extra dry, use a hydrating serum under your moisturizer for added boost of hydration
Continue to exfoliate, even in winter months to remove dead skin cells and this will help in the absorption of your products
Use a hydrating face mask 1-2 times a week or as needed
Be sure to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated
Wear Sunscreen even in the winter months…YES, Sunscreen is not just for warm weather. If you have plans for a ski trip or playing in the snow, apply sunscreen 30 minutes before going out and reapply every 2 hours. When you are at higher altitudes, you are at an increased risk for sun damage.
