Treating your Dry Skin Caused by Houston Winters
According to West Houston Dermatology, the majority of their patients don’t come in for dry skin because of the humid climate of Houston. However, the patients that do go into West Houston Dermatology possess skin disorders like atopic dermatitis. Especially during the wintertime, dry skin tends to be extremely irritated for those who suffer from it. Dry skin is typically due to the lack of oil in your skin. Yet, combating with dry skin is easy by just applying moisturizer. Stated in their blog, West Houston Dermatology states that the best time to apply moisturizer to affected patches of skin is 2 to 3 minutes after showering when the skin is still damp. You should never apply moisturizer on wet skin because it won’t fully help the skin, you’re applying the moisturizer to. Now that the weather is fully transitioning to consistent cold temperatures, taking care of your skin should be more of a priority now.
