If you plan to travel this winter, especially from a humid climate like Sarasota to a drier, colder climate, you will want to take some steps to prep your skin to keep dry, flaky skin at bay. Here are our top winter skincare tips to avoid itching, dryness and chapping during your travels.
Consider Switching Moisturizers
Talk with one of our expert skincare providers to find the best moisturizer for you. You might need to switch to a heavier barrier repair cream in the drier months or if you plan to travel to a drier climate that your skin is not used to.
Don’t Forget Sunscreen
If you’re traveling to a cold, snowy climate, sunscreen might not be at the top of your mind, but it should be. Stay diligent about sunscreen use, even on the ski slopes. In fact, bright, white snow and higher altitudes can intensify the sun’s UV rays, making them even more damaging to your skin.
Cover Your Skin When Outdoors
Dry air and wind can quickly cause dry, chapped skin and lips. Cover up exposed areas of skin when outside in these weather conditions and especially if you are skiing or snowboarding.
Exfoliate Skin with In-Office Treatments
If you are struggling to revive dry, dull winter skin, consider getting a nonsurgical cosmetic treatment for dry skin. HydraFacial® is a gentle yet effective way to exfoliate and cleanse the skin for a brighter, smoother complexion.
Other great treatments for dry, rough skin include DiamondGlow® skin resurfacing, chemical peels and microneedling.
