Winter Conditions Can Be Hard On Your Skin

Winter Conditions Skin
Winter Conditions can be hard on your skin. I see a number of patients complaining of dry, itchy skin. Some have a fine rash with red spots that they've been told is "Grover's disease".

The truth is the winter does bring it's own set of problems for maintaining healthy skin.

One of the most common presentations I see is itchy rashes on the back, especially the upper part, and occasionally the chest. This "Winter Itch" is actually the result of using excessively hot water in the shower. I'm guilty of doing this myself. As the air in the bathroom gets colder, we keep turning up the temperature of the water in the shower. It feels good while we're in there, but it really dries out the skin, and after a few days to weeks of using the hotter water, the dreaded "Winter Itch" has set in!

Once I explain this to my patients, they generally do much better. Here's my recommendations:

  • Get a space heater (be safe in positioning in your bathroom) or turn up the heat in your bathroom if you can. Warming up the air will let you turn down the heat in the shower. Take as cool of a shower as you can tolerate and try not to stay in longer than needed.
  • Only use gentle soaps. Some of my favorites are: CeraVe, Cetaphil, Olay Ultra Moisture, and Dove. Stay away from strongly scented or botanical soaps, as these can be drying.
  • Take a daily Omega-3 supplement. We carry the Omega 3 from Alphaeon, and I've been impressed with its ability to help in dry, itch skin. We've even had great results in chemotherapy patients who really suffer from dry skin.
  • Moisturize! The best time is right after showering. I like AmLactin for the legs and feet. Neutrogena has new product called "Hydro Boost" that I've been seeing great results with, and can be used on any part of the skin.
  • Vitamin E and D supplementation can be helpful. We can order a blood test to check your vitamin D level before supplementing.
  • If you are headed to the mountains, remember that the UV exposure there is different and in some ways, stronger than here at the beach. Stay with Zinc or Titanium-containing sunscreens and reapply frequently. I use the Vertra stick, It's the same one I use for surfing because it won’t sweat of if I'm boarding, hiking, or snowshoeing.

Have fun engaging in the winter activities and if you're having any difficulties with your skin come in and we'll figure it out and come up with a plan to help.

Ultherapy® advanced lifting and firming

Ultherapy is the state-of-the-art non-surgical ultrasound skin rejuvenation treatment that uses ultrasound to see below the surface of the skin and to specifically target the deep foundational layer of tissue that doctors address in surgery.

Visible effects include a lifting and firming of sagging skin. Uthera offers a more youthful appearance with minimal downtime.

Are you concerned about those unattractive brown spots starting to appear on your face, chest and hands?

The main cause of these spots is prolonged exposure to ultraviolet light. This causes extra pigment (melanin) to be produced at a faster rate than normal. Over time extra melanin is collected in the skin at higher concentrations than normal. Because these spots are mostly due to sun exposure, you'll often see it appear with other signs of sun damage like wrinkles, textured skin and red veins.

It is important to have your skin checked every 6-12 months. Dr. Kaplan or Julie McCardell,FNP can give you a complete skin exam to first determine that the spots are not skin cancer. At the time of your appointment they can make their recommendations as to which treatment is best to help lighten your brown spots. We have our own special prescription strength Firm & Fade cream to help lighten your spots. We also have photorejuvenation treatments available with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). It provides a gentle, non-invasive solution that provides natural improvement with minimal down time. For more information visit our photorejuvenation page.
