Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) December 19, 2013
As the air gets colder during each winter, it loses moisture and humidity. This dry, cool air is known to damage skin, with many people throughout Orange County complaining of dry, cracked skin throughout the long winter months.Dr. Kevin Sadati, an expert facial plastic surgeon, understands that dry skin is not only frustrating but also painful, and recognizes that many patients are looking to improve their skin care regimen. Dr. Kevin Sadati has created a tip sheet for his Newport Beach patients in order to help them relieve dry skin.
"Dry skin not only leaves patients prone to short-term discomfort, but this condition also has long-term effects on the skin. Over the course of time, patients will find that skin that is not properly moisturized will wrinkle sooner, and deep lines will form more quickly, leaving them appearing aged before their time," explained Dr. Kevin Sadati.
How Can People Relieve Dry Skin Throughout the Winter?
Opt for a lukewarm shower rather than a long, hot, steamy shower. Many people mistakenly believe that taking a shower will help hydrate their skin, but the fact of the matter is hot water can actually make dry skin worse. Hot water allows the skin to lose more of its natural oils, which makes the skin dry. Instead of soaking in a long, hot shower, patients should choose to take a lukewarm shower that is less than 10 minutes long.
Use mild soap and only use it moderately. Soap is also known to exacerbate dry skin, so it's important to choose a mild soap to use on a regular basis. Apply soap only when it is necessary and only on the most important parts of the body, such as hands, underarms and the groin region.
Moisturize skin on a regular basis. Moisturizers, such as lotions, creams, oil or ointments, are designed to restore moisture to the skin. Not only can these products help alleviate dry skin, but these same products can also prevent dry skin from occurring in the future.
Patients who have excessively dry skin can work with their physician in order to figure out a skin care regimen that works for them. Dr. Kevin Sadati specializes in providing patients with a rejuvenated appearance. He offers his patients a variety of cosmetic procedure options, ranging from facial plastic surgery procedures to non-surgical skin rejuvenation techniques, allowing everyone to appear refreshed and re-energized.
"When the skin is properly moisturized, a person can prevent both short-term and long-term damage to their skin. Not only will the skin feel silky and smooth, but it also will be preserved for many more years to come," noted Dr. Kevin Sadati.
Patients who are interested in improving their skin through cosmetic procedures are invited to schedule a free cosmetic consultation appointment with Dr. Kevin Sadati.
