Moist Skin in the Dry Autumn

It’s fall.  That central heating goes on again pretty soon. That and the colder, less humid fall air add up to dryer skin for almost everyone, but especially if you have a history of eczema

Remember to make sure all the cleansers you use are gentle (example, Cetaphil liquid cleanser, available at your drugstore).  And use cleansers only in the critical areas like the face, armpits, and groin.  You really don’t need to soap all over unless you’ve been mountain biking or camping and gotten dirty. 

And remember to lube your skin with moisturizer after every bath or shower.  Cetaphil makes good moisturizers, or you can check out moisturizers available online at the link below.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
