Here on the Front Range, we know all about dry skin.
It can be an uphill battle year-round, but winter brings on a whole new challenge. As soon as you turn the heater on in your home, you begin noticing the effects on your skin. Your skin may look dull, flaky, or even itchy and cracking. This is not only unsightly, it is uncomfortable. At Lasair Aesthetic Health of Denver, we love to help your skin look its best. We offer the best nonsurgical cosmetic dermatology specials in the area. Schedule your consultation today.
Now, what can you be doing at home to tend to that dry, flaky, unsightly skin that winter has brought on?
Moisturize. This is a no-brainer. However, you need to use a fragrance-free moisturizer immediately after your shower or bath every day. In fact, you may want to utilize a moisturizing body wash to help prevent drying out as you cleanse. There are also moisturizing oil cleansers available if you need to step it up a notch. Find out which moisturizer from the Alexis MD product line is best for you when you come in for your appointment.
If you find that you are following the above suggestions and your dry skin persists, try using a 1% hydrocortisone ointment to the dry area twice a day. Be sure to use ointment, not cream. Its best not to use this on your face, however. Do not use this ointment for more than two weeks in a row. If the problem continues, you may need to see a dermatologist to rule-out other causes of dry skin.
