With frigid temperatures, chilly winds and moisture-zapping indoor heat, winter can definitely take its toll on your skin. Dry, flaky cheeks, chapped hands and cracked skin may seem inevitable, but fortunately, Dr. Linda Miles has come to the rescue with some excellent tips and products so that we can all have healthy winter skin.
In the winter, it’s important to loosen and lift away dead, flaky skin that can otherwise lead to a dull, ashy appearance. I recommend using an effective yet gentle scrub such as derma e® Microdermabrasion Scrub. With a natural micro-crystal blend of Dead Sea Salt and Volcanic Sand, the fine grains work beautifully to reveal soft, smooth, luminous skin. Used once or twice a week it can help stimulate healthy surface renewal, visibly diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and prepare skin to receive the maximum benefits from treatment or moisturizer. It also works great on elbows, knees, or anywhere else skin is dry and flaky.
#2 Maximize Healthy Moisture
Winter can deplete skin of water and inhibit delivery of vital nutrients to skin. To restore skin’s moisture, I recommend skin care products loaded with humectants, emollients and nutrients. derma e®Hydrating Serum, Day and Night Crème are great choices, because they each contain the powerful humectant Hyaluronic Acid plusantioxidant Vitamin C and skin-conditioning Panthenol. Twice a day after cleansing and toning, apply the Hydrating Serum for a surge of moisture. Follow with Hydrating Day in the morning or Night Crème in the evening. Skin will look and feel instantly softer, smoother and more supple.
#3 Help for Dry Hands
Hands have it especially rough this time of year. Exposure to the elements and frequent hand washing can leave your hands uncomfortably chapped and dry. An ideal solution is the derma e® Vitamin E Intensive Therapy Hand Crème – it delivers a healthy dose of full-spectrum Vitamin E, deeply penetrating to instantly replenish extremely dry, over-worked, weather worn hands. Carry it with you and use it as often as needed to keep even severely chapped, cracked hands soft, smooth and restored.
#4 All-Over Softness
During winter, trade up to a body moisturizer richer and more intensive than the one you use during other seasons. You can deeply moisturize and nourish skin all over, including extra dry skin on your arms, elbows, legs and feet, with derma e® Vitamin E Intensive Therapy Body Balm. This concentrated treatment has naturally-sourced full spectrum Vitamin E and extra-rich skin conditioners to rescue and restore even the most extreme cases of dry, dehydrated skin. You won’t believe how moisturized, soft and smooth your skin will be!
