Aesthetics and health are both important to the team at Skin Care and Laser Physicians of Beverly Hills. Dermatology experts at the practice, led by dermatologist Derek H. Jones, MD, offer cosmetic and general dermatology services to Los Angeles-area patients seeking a solution to everything from fine lines to melanoma.
Winter, with its extreme temperatures and weather conditions, can be a season that contributes to such skin problems. With that in mind, here are some tips from our dermatology-focused team that can keep you looking and feeling healthy, youthful, and vibrant.
• Keep wearing sunscreen. Just because it’s cold or even cloudy outside doesn’t mean ultraviolet light can’t reach and damage your skin. Apply an even layer to your exposed skin if you’re going to be outdoors—and especially if you’re going to be participating in snow sports, where sunlight can bounce off of the expanses of white and cause a burn.
• Stay hydrated. Rain falling on your face isn’t the same as you nourishing your skin by drinking plenty of water. Moist, pliant skin is less likely to develop wrinkles from repetitive muscle movements.
• Get plenty of sleep. As darkness fall earlier, give your body plenty of time to rest and heal from the stresses of the day. Fatigue can take a toll on your skin and overall health.
• Bring your dermatology questions and problems to an expert. This is good advice no matter the season. From curiosity about treatments available for uneven pigmentation to concerns about a spot on the back of your hand, a trained and certified professional is your best option for optimal care.
