The declining temperature in the coming months could be problematic for your skin, according to Dr. Seth Forman.

“People need to be aware of the threat that cooler weather can have on the skin. Many individuals can experience dry skin, and those with eczema and psoriasis can also be affected,” says the Tampa dermatologist.

Forman says the best way to combat dry skin and other skin issues is to moisturize regularly. He also suggests investing in a humidifier, which can replace the moisture inside the home and can help lessen the irritation of dry skin and eyes. The Tampa dermatologist suggests a simpler solution to dry skin would be to cut back on hot showers.

“With the cooler weather, a lot of people look forward to taking a nice, hot shower. However, hot water can dry out your skin and leave you itchy,” says Forman. “Make sure to keep your shower time short and to use lukewarm water. Applying moisturizer three to five minutes after drying off is a great way to ensure the best absorption.”

The Tampa dermatologist also says the stress and foods often associated with the holiday season can cause unwanted skin issues. According to Forman, rosacea can be triggered by red wine, spicy foods and coffee.

Even though the temperature dips down in the winter months, Forman emphasizes the importance of sunscreen during these cooler months. He suggests applying a product with at least an SPF of 15 every day.
