On November 14, Likewise Skincare, producer of moisturizer for dry irritated skin, responds to an article published by TIME which reports ways to prep skin for winter through tips from Dr. Lisa R. Ginn, MD FAAD.
According to Dr. Ginn, “When I think of winterizing skin, I tell patients that the winter is the time to nourish and repair some of the effects from sun exposure and heat we’ve had in the preceding months. Anytime the skin is dry, it’s going to become more sensitive and easier to be irritated. The winter tends to be harsher in most climates, so if you have any underlying dermatitis or eczema, that will tend to flair in the winter. But even if you have perfectly healthy skin and you don’t take the appropriate steps to insulate it, you can have problems with dryness and irritation.” The TIME article goes on to state that exfoliating, moisturizing and protection are important factors in keeping still healthy during the colder months.
Lisa Shariat, a representative of Likewise Skincare, responds to the article by stating, “Sloughing off rough skin by exfoliating, protecting the skin from harmful UV rays and using hydrating moisturizers are all great tips to keep skin healthy during winter time. The windy chilly weather and the drying indoor heat can really leave your skin craving moisture. This is why it’s important to you a moisturizer daily to keeping dry irritated skin at bay during the wintertime.” Likewise Skincare commends the informative TIME article.
In the article, Dr. Ginn goes on to state, “I tell patient that there are a couple of basic steps you really need to follow: exfoliate, hydrate, repair and protect. The problem is we all know about skin protection in the summer, but when it comes to winter, we often fall off on certain things. For cleansers, nothing needs to change during the winter, but a few rules do apply.” The article advises that these steps (exfoliating, moisturizing and protection), aren’t only rules for the winter. Rather, the article states “these are the three steps that you should follow, not just during the winter, but year-round.”
