“When it comes to combating winter skin, think more," comments Lisa Benest, MD, Board certified dermatologist from Burbank, CA. "Your skin needs more moisturization and hydration under these harsher, drier and colder conditions."

During the colder, drier and windier winter months, most people commonly experience varying degrees of dry, itchy, flaky, scaly and cracked skin—winter skin conditions that dermatologists say can be overcome by extra care and attention on a daily basis.

“When it comes to combating winter skin, think more," comments Lisa Benest, MD, Board certified dermatologist from Burbank, CA. "Your skin needs more moisturization and hydration under these harsher, drier and colder conditions. This means using the right formulations more frequently and you’ll find that your skin is drinking up more cream or lotion with each application to get the job done.

She explains that it’s important to “choose creams that have active properties to help lock in moisture, and have other beneficial ingredients such as antioxidants, which help prevent and repair damage to the skin."

Dr. Benest says, “To fight the effects of winter skin, I’m a big fan of NR Skin’s Super Antioxidant Cream because it has high concentrations of avocado, soybean and vitamin E oils, which are very effective but don’t clog the pores, along with incredible hydrators such as hyaluronic acid, which absorbs 1,000 times its weight in water. These powerful ingredients, along with all the rich antioxidants in this Super Antioxidant Cream, work together beautifully to promote a radiant and well-moisturized complexion, even in the harshest winter conditions.”

In addition, dermatologists recommend applying moisturizer shortly after bathing or showering to lock in moisture.

NR Skin Founder and CEO Nancy Ryan reminds people to “read skin product labels carefully to know what they are putting into their skin, and to be aware of the concentrations of key ingredients—which are listed from highest to lowest order on product labels.”
