Keeping your skin hydrated during the winter

Keeping your skin hydrated during the winter

Many of us struggle to have great skin as it is, and when the weather is against us it’s even more difficult. Today we will give you tips that will alleviate certain winter problems and at the same time prevent conditions that occur during this season.

Problem: Dry chapped skin/ Flare-up of keratosis pilaris

Solution: Moisturize as you dry up

Extra-dry skin like on dry upper arms can trigger a flare-up of keratosis pilaris, that annoying rough skin, says “New York dermatologist Joshua Zeichner, MD”.

Product Recommended

The best product C.O. BIGELOW CHAPPED HANDS SOAP-FREE CLEANSER

Why?  “They’re less drying than washing repeatedly with soap and water.”

Problem: If your arms or legs look scaly

Solution/ Product Recommended:  Use a 12 percent lactic acid lotion like AmLactin Moisturizing Body Lotion.

Amazon $23.00

Why?

Even if you’re just dealing with summer skin dryness, this lotion is THE BEST THING EVER. The lactic acid naturally causes your skin to turn over and locks in hydration while helping to boost skin’s ability to retain said moisture.

Problem: Chapped Lips

Solution: Picking at it can cause it to bleed and hurt, slow the healing process, and cause more irritation. Don’t exfoliate. It can cause further damage to chapped lips. Instead, apply plenty of balm or ointment and turn on the humidifier

Product: Orajel™ Single Dose Cold Sore Treatment $14.00 Target

Wrinkles while you sleep

Wrinkles while you sleep

A recent study showed, that the condition in which you sleep may contribute to the wrinkles on your face. When you lay your face on a pillow, you may be placing it in a position that affects your skin, therefore it causes the skin to stretch, shear, and compression forces on your skin. Lateral sleeping (on your side) and the prone (face down in the pillow) are the positions that are considered to cause wrinkles while you sleep. As we get older we move less while we sleep, this results in a longer amount of time in one position, therein a longer duration of time a wrinkle producing force is being applied to an area of skin.

{The location and orientation of sleep wrinkles are often different than wrinkles caused by facial expression, ( Please see the example below, Common sleep wrinkle locations and orientation marked in black]

And unlike wrinkles caused by facial expression most sleep wrinkles are not improved by Botox. However, sleep wrinkles can be improved by fillers (e.g., Juvederm, Restylane, Belotero), laser resurfacing, and face-lifting in some cases.
