The Rx: Fall and Winter Skin Care Tips

August 30, 2010

Fall and winter present both challenges and opportunities for skin care. Here’s a to do list for the season from Dr. Michele Grodberg.

FIGHT DRY SKIN

• Apply a heavy moisturizer while skin is still damp after the shower.
• Exfoliate top layers of skin with a hydrating glycolic acid moisturizer.
• Use a humidifier overnight.
• Drink lots of water – Remember coffee and tea are dehydrating.
• Use a hydrating cleanser for your body. Dr. Grodberg's favorites: MGMD® Exfoliating Body Lotion, Olay Complete Body Wash, Aveeno Positively Smooth Moisturizing Lotion.

SCHEDULE SUN SENSITIVE PROCEDURES

It is best to schedule most cosmetic procedures in the winter so the skin can heal away from the sun. Now is the time to remove unwanted hair with laser hair removal, to zap those red facial blood vessels with a laser or to treat those bothersome leg veins with sclerotherapy.

ADD AN EYE CREAM AND PICK A HEAVIER MOISTURIZER

Dry skin makes wrinkles more prominent so be diligent about hydrating wrinkle prone areas such as the skin below your eyes. Dr. Grodberg’s favorite: MGMDTM Rejuvenating Eye Serum.

USE SUNSCREEN FOR OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES

Harmful rays are still present even though the temperature has dropped. Sometimes they're even stronger than usual, such as when skiing at high altitudes. Remember to apply a broad spectrum sunscreen to exposed skin. Dr. Grodberg’s favorite: Citrix Antioxidant Sunscreen SPF 30.

YOUR FEET A BEAUTY BOOST

Nail polish year round can lead to dry, brittle nails. Skip the polish during the winter months while your feet are hidden in socks and shoes and apply a heavy glycolic moisturizer to your toenails and heels at bedtime. This will help to exfoliate the dead cells and hydrate the normal cells leading to twinkling tootsies for spring sandals. Dr. Grodberg’s favorite: MGMD® Rough Skin Smoothing Cream.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND SKIN REJUVENATION: HEAT SHOCK PROTEINS (“HSPs”)

HSPs are an important component of treatment strategies to address the effects of the aging process and reduce signs of maturing skin. HSPs occur when skin is subjected to heat and responds to the small injuries resulting from the heat by repairing itself and restoring its connective tissue. Many treatments at MGMD Dermatology utilize this process, yielding skin rejuvenation including improvement in fine lines, skin tone, texture, and elasticity.
