Body Care Tips from Dermatologists to Keep Your Skin Healthy and Strong This WinterCold and dry winter weather doesn’t have to get in the way of your glow this season.
Even though the sun may be going down earlier these days with winter approaching, there’s still a way to glow this holiday season. Dermatologists weighed in with Cherie and said that there’s a product for each and every one of us as we switch our seasonal body care products. It just depends on what you’re looking for and the goals that you have for your skin in the coming months. But in order to understand your skin aspirations, it’s important to recognize that the skin on our face is different from that of which is on our body. Dr. Erum Ilyas told Cherie that facial skin is oftentimes oilier than body skin, and can require different care and attention. “We have a higher density and higher concentration of oil glands on the face and sometimes on the upper chest, shoulder, and upper back area,” she said.

Skin type classification according to Ilyas is simply a marketing tactic to allow consumers a better way to “understand what they’re going to get out of their product.” She said that buyers should pay attention to ingredient labels on the backs of products rather than solely committing to something based on what the front says that it will do.

Landriscina said that the winter season brings dryer air with less humidity, and he isn’t just talking about the air outside, either. The doctor said that hot showers and dry heat from heating systems can all work together during the winter months to give many of us dry body skin. Because of this, Landriscina said that a focus on moisture in winter body care is essential for maximizing glow potential. “All skin types should be looking to amp up barrier function and HYDRATE body skin during the winter,” he said. “This includes using humectants like glycerin and hyaluronic acid to add water to the skin as well as lipids, ceramides and occlusive like petrolatum to help seal that water in.” His biggest body skin secret for the season is utilizing a humidifier in his bedroom while he sleeps.

In an analogy, the dermatologist said that she imagines skin to be like a cobblestone street rather than a smooth wall. The bricks that hold it together, she says, are like our skin cells and look like cracked porcelain when it becomes dry in the wintertime. “If you put fragrance on top of that cobblestone, the skin becomes filled with that fragrance and it becomes irritated,” Ilyas said. “Your immune system starts to feel like there’s some sensory overload going on.”

Landriscina said that UV radiation is still present even in winter months and mentioned that even skiers still get sunburnt. Ilyas agreed and said that UV rays, which can be responsible for skin cancer, can actually be magnified by snow. “I caution people to not think that they’re in the clear during the winter,” she said. “You don’t want to get a false sense of security when you might find that that’s actually when you burn.” And as many of us still work from home these days, Ilyas warned that consistent exposure to blue lights can actually speed up aging, discoloration, and promote wrinkles. She recommends using products with niacinamide to combat our constant exposure. But no matter what the weather may have in store for us this winter, listen to the skin on your body this winter season and look for products with ingredients that will help to keep your skin strong and healthy!

THIS DERMATOLOGISTS FAVORITE NEW CLEANSER
Cleansers are an essential step in everyone’s skincare routine, but it can be difficult to find the right one for your skin. The new Aveeno Calm + Restore nourishing oat cleanser has been my new go-to daily cleanser and I love it. ❤️🙌 Aveeno has always been a brand to create formulations that target dry and sensitive skin and this cleanser is no different. This cleanser is great for people all skin types but would likely benefit dry or combination skin most. The incorporated oat complex helps restore build the skin’s moisture barrier and soothe itchy skin. There is no stripping effect with this cleanser, which is something too always look for with your cleanser. Other pros about this product are its fragrance free (limiting any irritant reactions) as well as great pricing. On amazon, you can find a bottle for under $10.‼️‼️ TRUTH: If you are trying to fight acne or blackheads I recommend against this cleanser and try finding something with salicylic acid. Have you tried the new Aveeno cleanser? Let me know your thoughts in the comments! ⤵️
GRWM! New products and some old!
Hello everyone! I did another GRWM using some new and old products! First I started off with a primer. I used e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer I was actually really surprised by this. It reminded me of Tachas silk canvas primer. It went on smoothly and did a good job of blurring my skin. I will say though after I looked at my makeup in the mirror up close it did settle a bit into my pores and my creases and was pretty noticeable. Overall I think this is a good product and will work for people with smoother skin. e.l.f. - 16HR Camo Concealer Then I used the elf concealer. I love this concealer. I’ve used it so many other times in my other videos. WINKY LUX - Diamond Powder Foundation Then I used the winky lux foundation. This actually went on so nicely and was super natural looking. I love how it’s so weightless and decreases shine. I would recommend this for people with oilier skin. the CRÈME shop - "Macro Brow" Angled Brow Pencil + Spooley Then i used macro brow. This is just to fill in the last bits of my eyebrow to look fuller. It’s easy to use and has a great price point. I just wish the pigment was a little easier to apply. You have to push so hard. RITUEL DE FILLE - Rare Light Crème Luminizer My favorite brand of highlighters ever. Just so pretty and pigmented. All natural and cruelty free. An amazing brand overall. 💞 fresh - Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 I used a tinted fresh lip treatment. Love the way they hydrate and the subtle color it gives off. They also smell and taste really good 😂. Hope you enjoyed getting ready with me! Let me know if you have any questions about the products I used.
🎯Ingrown hairs—these two little words conjure🎯
In our quest for smooth, stubble-free skin, ingrown hairs are an annoyance at best and cause for concern at worst (trust me- you don't want to see what they look like when they get infected)🤐 The cause of ingrown hairs isn't complicated. Simply put, when your hair starts to grow, sometimes it curls inward and gets trapped back under the surface of your skin. This can happen because dead skin cells clog up your hair follicle (so always, always exfoliate), but ingrowns also exist just because of your hair's natural growth pattern—so, unfortunately, those with curly hair may suffer the most! ￼Aspirin-Honey Treatment This recipe is a double whammy. Not only does aspirin naturally contain salicylic acid, but honey also has antibacterial properties, which can help reduce the possibility of inflammation and infection. 🔎Ingredients: 3 uncoated aspirin tablets 1 tsp. honey 1/2 to 1 tsp. water or oil Directions: Add warm water or oil to a bowl Add honey Crush aspirin tablets Mix together Leave mask on for 10 minutes Wipe off entirely with warm water ￼Coconut Oil Sugar Scrub Coconut oil, for example, is hydrating, keeps skin moisturized, and reduces inflammation.4 It's basically our winter skin savior. Mix it with raw sugar and you've got a winner. You can use this scrub daily until you see an improvement, and then you can switch to two to three times a week. Just be careful that the scrub isn't too abrasive. 🔎Ingredients: 1 cup of raw sugar 1/2 cup of coconut oil 10 drops of tea tree oil, or your preferred essential oil Directions: Combine sugar and coconut oil in a bowl Add in essential oil Mix together Apply and then rinse using warm water Dry with a clean towel ￼Baking Soda and Oatmeal Treatment I am huge fan of baking soda and how amazing this ingredient is! And rediciliously cheap. Baking soda, which is a great exfoliator, helps reduce and prevent ingrown hairs. Oatmeal has a soothing effect, reducing redness and irritation caused by exfoliation. 🔎Ingredients: 1 tbsp. baking soda 1 cup of water 1 tbsp. ground oatmeal Directions: Mix baking soda and oatmeal together Add water to the bowl Stir until it has a paste-like texture Using a cotton pad, scoop up the mixture Apply to the affected area and let sit for 10 minutes Rinse with warm water ￼Oil-Based Serum if you're particularly sensitive, it's best to avoid overly harsh scrubs. Abrasive scrubs like sugar and salt scrubs do exfoliate the skin but often at the expense of causing excess skin irritation 🔎Ingredients: 1 tbsp. castor oil 1 tbsp. hemp oil (optional) 10 drops tea tree oil Directions: Find a reusable glass bottle Combine castor oil and hemp oil Add tea tree oil to mix Apply combination after shaving to prevent irritation alba BOTANICA - Acne Dote, Face & Body Scrub Oil-Free CeraVe - SA Moisturizing Cream For Rough & Bumpy Skin GLYTONE - KP Kit Amlactin - Daily Moisturizing Body Lotion
