Fall and winter may be a wonderful time for cozying up next to a warm fire, but the colder temperatures can wreak havoc on your skin. The cold, dry air is only partially to blame for skin damage during this time of year. Frequent hot showers, hours in front of a warm fire, and blaring heaters all contribute skin dryness during the fall and winter months. The good news is that you can undergo skin treatments to rejuvenate your appearance. Skin treatments can improve the texture of your skin and protect it from damage during the colder winter months. Prepare for fall and winter with cosmetic skin damage repair with treatment at Dr. Fredric Newman's Darien, CT practice.
The fall and winter can leave the skin dry, cracked, and itchy. As the weather chills, many find the appearance of their skin worsens. Why is this? Fall and winter weather is often accompanied by lower humidity levels and wind, both of which can dry out and irritate the skin. Seeking shelter indoors during the colder months doesn't always help improve skin dryness. In fact, it can make it worse. Heaters and fires contribute to dry air. Even taking long hot showers or baths can strip the skin of moisture, leaving it feeling chapped, itchy, or irritated.
Sun damage also remains a concern during the fall and winter months. Many people forget to wear sunscreen when the days are colder. Sun damage is just as likely during cold fall and winter days. Snow can even amplify the damaging effects of UV rays, as the bright white snow reflects the sun's rays.
