Each type of lotion is different. Find out how to care for your dry skin effectively.

Despite the fact that spring isn’t too far behind, we still have to put up with snow, cold temperatures and freezing winds. These winter elements can wreak havoc on our skin, causing it to become dry, chapped and red. If you are one of those people who are currently trying to find some way to alleviate their dry skin, then you’ve come to the right place. Find out the best moisturizer to help your chapped, cracked skin, and how to prevent this problem from happening to you next winter.

The Right Moisturizer for You

It can be difficult to choose the right product for your skin. After all, not all skin was created equally and there is often some trial and error when it comes to choosing the most effective moisturizer. So what kind of lotion should you look for? If you have sensitive skin, seek out a soothing, creamy moisturizer containing ceramide, which is gentle enough for delicate skin.

If you don’t have sensitive skin but you are suffering from severe dryness, then you’ll want to look for a richer moisturizer that contains urea, beeswax, or petroleum jelly, which help to lock in moisture and offer the skin a protective barrier against the drying elements.

Also, keep in mind that the skin on your face is different than the skin on your body so you’ll want to choose a different moisturizer for both. When it comes to choosing a moisturizer for your face look for a bottle that says that it’s noncomedogenic, which means that it won’t clog your pores and leave you prone to breakouts. Also opt for a moisturizer that acts as a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more. This will also act as a protective shield against sun, wind, and cold.

Apply Your Moisturizer

How you apply your moisturizer is often just as important to choosing the proper moisturizer. We recommend applying a generous amount of moisturizer right after you step out of the shower and pat yourself partially dry. You want to apply your moisturizing cream to your skin while it’s still a bit moist to help your skin absorb more water.

If your skin needs some serious moisturizing then you may want to consider applying the cream before bedtime and then wearing breathable gloves or socks over the hands and feet overnight to offer a deeper moisturizing experience.

Don’t let dry skin drive you crazy. If you haven’t found a lotion that helps combat your dry skin, then it’s time to talk to your dermatologist today to find out what products are right for you. Call us to schedule an appointment and lets nip your dry skin in the bud.

Beautiful GirlBotox is a common and effective dermatological treatment to minimize the appearance of your fine lines and wrinkles and even prevent new wrinkles from forming at all. This treatment is fast and easy with no recovery time, making it ideal for almost anyone. Find out more about Botox with Dr. Brian Feinstein and Dr. Bridgit Nolan at Feinstein Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery in Delray Beach, FL.

What is Botox? 
Botox is a cosmetic dermatological treatment which helps treat unwanted fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment injects Botox into the facial muscles. This paralyzes the muscles, decreasing their movement and allowing the skin on top of them to relax and smooth out. Because the muscles can no longer move, the skin cannot fold over them, which also prevents the formation of new wrinkles or fine lines.

What can I expect during a Botox treatment? 
Before your Botox treatment, your dermatologist will cleanse your skin and create a plan of action for where you would benefit most from Botox injections. Then, they will use a super-fine needle to inject the Botox into your skin’s muscles. Most patients report a small pinch as the needle enters the skin, but often say this is not a painful procedure. After your treatment, which lasts only about 15 minutes, you may notice some redness or bruising around the injection sites which will normally resolve itself within a day or two.
