The largest organ of the body is the skin. This makes it easy to care for. However, when patients do not protect their skin and nourish it, they may notice problems such as dryness and dull texture and tone. With the help of our team at Georgia Dermatology Partners, patients can care for their skin in a way to improve its appearance and even keep it hydrated. Dry skin is a common problem, but with the proper steps, most patients can rehydrate their skin and keep it moisturized as part of their daily skincare regimen.
Which moisturizer is right for me?
Not all moisturizers are created equal, so it is vital that patients work with a dermatological professional to pick the one that is most appropriate for their needs. Some help build moisture levels while improving skin firmness, while others can also help in fighting skin damage and promoting the development of new skin cells. A moisturizer combined with sunscreen is also a bonus!
When should I moisturize my skin?
The best time to moisturize the skin is immediately after a shower or bath. The moisturizing lotions can be applied to the skin immediately after drying to help trap natural oils and water into the skin. Showers and baths should not be hot, only warm, as hot water can also draw out natural oils and dry out the skin’s surface.
Can I combat aging by moisturizing?
Many patients don’t realize that the signs of aging can be slowed with the use of a proper moisturizer and other skincare products. Skin laxity and sun exposure can cause the skin to experience poor texture and tone, while moisturizers keep the skin hydrated and healthy-looking.
