Common Cold Weather Skin Problems

Routine Dry Skin
This affects everyone during cold winter weather. Heating systems draw the moisture out of our skin this time of year — and it’s about to get worse in Jan., Feb., and March! So get ready; an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure!

Some Dry Skin Tips:
1. Infrequent bathing helps a lot. Try every other day during the next three months (wash up dirty areas in the sink on off days). Use unscented soap that is very gentle, like Dove, Ivory or Oil of Olay. Get out of the bath or shower and quickly towel dry.

2. Immediately moisturize all dry prone areas. I LIKE Balancing Toner by EPIONCE. Just spray on and rub in quickly. Then I LIKE Renewal Enriched Body Lotion by EPIONCE on routine dry areas. I LIKE Medical Barrier Cream by EPIONCE on more difficult dry areas. Remember to ALWAYS spray Balancing Toner first to prepare the skin for the lotion or cream—it makes everything work twice as effective in healing your skin! (It’s economical too—makes lotions and creams go twice as far.)

Eczema/Dermatitis
If you have problem rashes year round, you can really benefit from the above Dry Skin recommendations. You may need to double the frequency of applications AND do even less bathing—every third or fourth day. If you are still struggling with red itchy rashes due to inflammation, see a dermatologist. I practice in Fort Gibson, Oklahoma: 918-478-2101

Icthyosis
This inherited type of dry skin is quite common and onsets early in life as fish-like dark scales on lower legs and general dry skin everywhere including the hands. If this is you, one of your parents has likely suffered as well. I LIKE Balancing Toner followed by Medical Barrier Cream twice daily.

Psoriasis
About 3% of the population are affected by this difficult skin problem. It has dry scaly features, but is often accompanied by considerable red inflammation. This may require strong prescription medications, however, I LIKE a three step topical program: Balancing Toner — spray and rub in quickly, then apply Lytic Tx Lotion by EPIONCE. Then 5-10 minutes later carefully rub in Extreme Barrier Cream by EPIONCE. Do this 2-3 times daily.

We MUST pay special attention to our skin during cold winter weather to prevent the ravages of itchy, cracking, painful or even bloody Dry Skin. Plan ahead to be good to your skin this winter!
