It’s that time of year again. Dry, flaky skin makes a sneaky reappearance almost overnight. Battling dry skin associated with harsh, dehydrating winter months can take a little more effort than a simple moisturizing treatment you’ll find in a department store. For smooth, flawless skin in the dead of winter, you’ll have to bring the fight to the experts.

Don’t let the effects of cool weather and harmful central heating systems get the best of you. At Skin Cancer Specialists, P.C. & Aesthetic Center, we’re here to help. One of our board-certified dermatologists will exam your skin and assess any possible underlying causes.

Your dermatologist can recommend a treatment plan to help eliminate dead skin cells, as well as improve skin tone and texture based on your individual needs. A simple topical steroid may do the trick in some cases.

Other instances may require a more hands-on approach. A SilkPeel Dermalinfusion, for example, can stop dead skin cells in their tracks while rejuvenating skin with antioxidants, peptides, and other skin-friendly nutrients.

A Microdermabrasion treatment might be what you need if you also suffer from acne scars, persistent blackheads, or deep complexion issues.

Of course, there are several things you can do at home to maintain improved skin in dry, winter months.

  • Stick to non-alcoholic moisturizers and apply multiple times daily.
  • Avoid harsh chemical-ridden soaps and scented body washes.
  • Wear lip balm.
  • Use warm water rather than hot when showering.
  • Keep the bathroom door closed to trap in moisture while in the shower.

Following the above steps can keep your skin looking fresh and youthful, longer.
