Winter Skin Care
Winterize Your Skin: Dermatologists’ Top Tips for Surviving the Cold

November 19, 2003

Winterize Your Skin: Dermatologists’ Top Tips for Surviving the Cold CHICAGO, IL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 21-10-2003 -- Most people go to great lengths to winterize their house and car, yet they neglect to winterize their skin care routine. If it’s cold enough to pull out your sweaters, then it’s time to make some changes in what you put on your skin, or it could wind up dry and flaky. So what should you do? The number one tip from dermatologists is to moisturize properly.

  • For best results apply moisturizer within three minutes of stepping out of the shower. This will help trap water in the upper layers of the skin and decrease dryness and itching.
  • Dermatologists recommend looking for moisturizers with petrolatum, mineral oil, linoleic acid, ceramides, dimethicone or glycerin.

In addition to moisturizing, you should avoid detergents that can dry the skin, so use a soap free cleanser. Another tip: cosmetics with antioxidants or retinoids can also benefit your skin in the winter. Antioxidants can help prevent the signs of aging while retinoids can be used to decrease acne and age spots. For more information about winter skin care, you can log onto the American Academy of Dermatology’s web site at
