Don’t let dry skin get you down this winter season. Keep this problem at bay.

Whether you consider yourself a snow bunny or you are someone who spends the cold months pressed up against the fireplace, there are dry skinmany habits that can lead to dry skin. If you are someone who battles dry skin often our Encino, CA, dermatologist, Dr. Alex Eshaghian, has simple solutions for combating this unpleasant issue.

Avoid Hot Water

We know how enticing a steaming hot shower or bath can be, particularly if you just came in from the frigid outdoors; however, if you are someone who deals with dry skin then you truly want to heed this warning and stay away from lingering hot showers. Instead, opt for warm water and limit the amount of time in the shower to no more than 10 minutes.

Use Gentle Products

Harsh cleansers can strip skin of the natural oils it needs. If you are someone who deals with dry skin pretty consistently then you’ll want to take a look at the products you are using on your skin. Look for sensitive, fragrance-free skincare products for both your face and your body and avoid products that contain alcohol. If you are at a loss for what products are right for dry skin, our Encino skin doctor would be happy to provide some recommendations.

Don’t Be Aggressive

A lot of people think that in order to get skin clean they need to scrub and scrub. While a squeaky clean may be okay when it comes to your kitchen floors it shouldn’t be for your skin. Always take a gentle approach to cleansing your skin. After washing your face never rub your face clean. Instead, blot skin dry with a soft towel.

Don’t Skimp on Moisturizer

Moisturizer is something that everyone should use to keep skin feeling and looking supple. Even those who don’t deal with dry skin should still consider using a light moisturizer, particularly during drier, colder months. Of course, if you are dealing with dry skin then you will want to use a thicker emollient. Apply right after getting out of the shower or immediately after washing your face.
