Even though it may not feel like winter in the Tampa Bay area, there is still a chance your skin is drying out or even getting burned by the beautiful Florida sunshine.

Tampa dermatologist Dr. Seth Forman appeared on WTSP 10 News’ ‘The Morning Show’ on Saturday, Feb. 4 to talk about the importance of winter skincare and the products viewers can use to prevent rough, dry or cracked skin. Forman says the lack of humidity commonly experienced in the winter contributes to the painful experience some may feel due to dry skin.  

“It’s actually not the temperature itself that’s causing the dry or cracked skin,” Forman says. “While it’s very humid in the summer and the spring, the air is dryer in the winter and our skin is drying out as well.”

Forman is a board-certified Tampa dermatologist, making him the go-to doctor for all things skin related in the Tampa Bay area. In talking with health reporter Allison Kropff, the Tampa dermatologist mentioned popular skincare products and moisturizers that help protect skin, including Cetaphil, CeraVe and Aveeno.

Forman also discussed the importance of wearing sunscreen in all types of weather. He says that while it is crucial to wear sunscreen in the summer, it should also be worn during the winter as the sun is still shining.  The Tampa dermatologist says it is important to use sunscreen in order to protect the areas of skin left uncovered during the cooler such as the face or hands.

“You still need sunscreen,” Forman says. “The UVA and the UVB rays still cause sunburn in cooler weather. Despite the lower temperatures, the sun is still out and you can put yourself at risk for skin cancer by skipping sunscreen.”
