The Winter Skin Woes

It seems Winter has finally decided to show up in Charleston, while we may get a few warm days throughout the season the Winter (mild as it may be) can take a harsh toll on your skin. Whether you suffer from a dulling complexion or cracking skin this season Dr. Germain has great tips on how to fight the season’s affects.

– Hydrate your skin from the inside out by drinking lots of water and increasing your intake of Omega 3s (by diet is best, but supplements are also good).
– Cut back on long HOT showers or baths.
– Don’t over exfoliate. While gentle exfoliation, or the use of a Clairisonic cleansing brush is good, many people think using scrubs and harsh exfoliation methods will help get rid of dry skin and flakes- but it actually makes it worse.
– Wash your face 2x a day using cool water, without a wash cloth.
– Use a soap-free cleanser (cream cleansers are best, such as our Germain Rx Restorative Cream Cleanser)
– Moisturize within 3 minutes of cleansing or bathing. Upgrading to a heavier, cream based moisturizer this time of year is also a good idea, or using body oil when getting out of the shower.
