Wilmington Dermatology Center’s Top Picks for Winter Skin Care

Wilmington Dermatology Center’s Top Picks for Winter Skin Care:

As the winter temperature edges its way down the thermometer, be sure you are prepared with the right winter skin care products to maintain a healthy glow.  Cold, windy and dry air can be brutal to your skin, causing increased dryness to your face, body, lips and hands. As always, the #1 rule is to moisturize!

Ask the expert; what are Dr. Roz’s picks for top winter skincare products? For the face, neck and décolleté, she loves SkinMedica’s Dermal Repair Cream for the deep moisture it provides and Cerave cream for the body and hands to help keep dry skin at bay. You can pick up these products at Wilmington Dermatology Center.

Infuse your skin with the extra moisture it needs. A natural moisturizer can be found in your kitchen pantry and it tastes good too! Extra Virgin Olive Oil works wonders for the skin when it comes to moisturizing, as well as maintaining the skin’s elasticity, due to the antioxidants it contains. Olive Oil can be found in a wide variety of skin care products.  Don’t forget your lips and hands! Keep a tube of lip balm on you at all times along with a small tube of hand cream. Be sure your lip balm contains lanolin which is a natural moisturizer with powerful emollient and protective properties.

Let’s not forget sunscreen! Despite the darker, cloudy skies that winter brings, sunscreen is still an essential item that should be used on a daily basis. Even if it’s not sunny, UV protection should be considered one of your daily skin care regimen products.  Wilmington Dermatology Center recommends an SPF30 or higher with UVA/UVB protection.  SkinCeuticals and SkinMedica sunscreen products are an excellent source of protection from the sun’s harmful rays and can be purchased here at WDC.

4 Must-Have Skin Care Products For Holiday Travels

During the Holiday season, many of us travel to be with the ones we love. It can be a demanding time for road trips, plane rides, and airport layovers! In fact, Christmas is known as one of the busiest times of the year for traveling. We want to remind you to not put your skin care regimen on hold throughout these times.  Here are 4 must-have skin care products for holiday travels.

4 Must-Have Skin Care Products For Holiday Travels

  1. Cleanser- With winter like temperatures, it’s important to use a cleanser that is not harsh on your skin. The SkinMedica Gentle Skin Cleanser is great for this time of year. “It’s a mild cleanser, that doesn’t tend to dry out your skin”, says Donna Maccalupo, aesthetician at Wilmington Dermatology Center.
  2. Moisturizer- No one wants dry, flaky, itchy skin for their Holiday party! We recommend the Dermal Repair Cream or Rejuvenative Moisturizer by SkinMedica. These products are a bit heavier and can provide protection against the cold. Julie Taddei another lead aesthetician at Wilmington Dermatology Center loves the SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel, “Your Skin drinks it up like water.”
  3. Sunscreen- Remember to wear your sunscreen during the wintery months. Sun burn and damage is still possible in the cold. The SkinMedica TNS Ultimate Daily Moisturizer with SPF 20 is an all in one product. It provides you with growth factors to build collagen, light sun protection, and helps moisturize.
  4. Anti-Aging- One of the most crucial products for the Holiday Season, while traveling, is the SkinMedica TNS Line Refine. Julie Taddei states “The line refine is great for keeping in your purse and using it around the eyes and mouth. It instantly helps reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles.”
