Not to take away from the whole Polar Vortex situation going on with our friends to the east of us, but we have our own winter problems here in Seattle. Sure, it’s no winter storm filled with endless snow and ice, but that topic has already got its share of attention. It’s now time to focus on a different sort of winter terror – dry skin.
Dry skin, chapped lips, itchy scalps, even psoriasis have become known as dermatological problems during the cold winter months. Even when you do your best to moisturize and care for your skin with various department store products and at-home remedies, the weather just gets colder. Your skin begins to crack and flake despite your best attempts to defend it. When winter becomes an unbearable opponent, it’s time to break out the big skin care guns that you won’t find on the shelves of your local Target.
Healing Your Skin After A Rough Winter
The products that are pushed toward us through cleverly written ads aren’t always the best when it comes to serious winter damage treatment. Many skin care products are heavily diluted with a bunch of nonessential ingredients so that they can continue to sell more products at a lower price. So why would you use these to protect your skin from the frightful weather outside? Your skin is your biggest and most well-shown organ, so you should treat it as such. This means using the best products and treatments available. With just a month left of winter, although we then jump right back into the rain, now is a great time to begin healing your winter skin in Seattle damage.
Whether it’s on your face, hands or body, dry skin can look and feel like a nightmare. Oftentimes, even after applying layers of popular products like Aveeno or those deliciously smelling products at Bath & Body Works, your skin can remain in a rough, scaly state. While these products may look and smell good, this is a problem well above their ability levels. Medical-grade skin care products are specially formulated with high-quality and powerful ingredients that are strong enough to restore soft, smooth skin, and gentle enough to keep it that way. Some great options include:
· Northwest Face & Body Oil-Free Moisturizer (for acne-prone skin)
