How to Maintain Healthy Skin During Fall and Winter

By Ashley Strickland

Your skin is one of the most sensitive parts of your body and requires constant care to maintain its health. Whether adding a product to your regimen or booking a laser treatment, it’s important to understand your skin’s needs and change your routine accordingly. This is especially true as we transition from one season to the next. Changes in weather directly impact our skin’s health and require a reevaluation of our day-to-day regimen.

In preparation for the fall and winter months, I’m here to share the do’s and don’ts of maintaining healthy skin – and how our team at Seiler Skin is here to help!

Do Make a Dermatologist Appointment

Regularly visiting your dermatologist is an essential step in taking care of your skin health year-round. We tend to become a bit paler during the fall and winter months, allowing us to better detect any skin abnormalities or discolorations. A quick trip to the dermatologist is something that can fit into everyone’s schedule, no matter how busy you may be.

Don’t Stop Using Sunscreen

People commonly believe that sunscreen is only necessary during the summer months when in fact it should be a part of your skincare product regimen all year. The sun’s UVA/UVB rays can still damage your skin during the cooler months – even on a cloudy or overcast day. You should find a sunscreen for your winter regimen and make sure to apply each and every day.

Do Hydrate Your Skin

Cooler months can dry out your skin and leave you with a “scaly” texture. Moisturizers and exfoliators replenish your skin and can easily be worked into your daily product regimen. You should also be sure to hydrate by drinking plenty of water daily – just because it isn’t hot outside doesn’t mean you should stop hydrating!

Don’t Quit an Active Lifestyle

One of the best things you can do for your skin’s health is maintain an active, healthy lifestyle. Regular exercise and a proper diet provide your skin with a healthy base that enhances the results of any products or treatments. Vitamin supplements are also a great way to ensure your body is getting all the nutrients it needs to maintain proper skin health.

Do Book Treatments That Nourish Your Skin

Your skin needs an extra boost during fall and winter, which is why regular treatments are essential to maintaining a healthy, glowing complexion. Treatments such as Dermaplane, HydraFacials and our very own Revision Skincare Express Facial are extremely effective for locking in moisture and keeping your skin healthy. These treatments are also quick to administer, have practically no downtime and can be used on all skin types – the perfect gift to a loved one or even yourself!

The fall and winter months can be a busy time of year for many, but that doesn’t mean you should let your skin health fall to the wayside. We offer products and treatments designed to keep you on track and maintain healthy skin year-round. Our team also provides one-on-one consultations to develop the best skin care regimen to fit your needs. Don’t wait until winter is here – call us and book your next Seiler Skin visit today!
