Skincare is an ongoing process. Each person is matched with a unique set of biological and environmental factors that affect the way that their skin looks and feels. Achieving healthy and beautiful skin isn’t a one-time endeavor. Understanding your skin is the first step in establishing a successful skincare routine. For many, their primary concern is that they suffer from dry or dull skin. Our experienced providers at Dermatology Associates of Atlanta want to help you learn how to maintain a hydrated complexion, so you can feel confident in your look.
Why having your skin diagnosed is important
To properly understand which type of treatments and products you might need to have hydrated skin, you’ll need a professional diagnosis by one of our dermatology providers. Skin can potentially become dehydrated as a side effect of any underlying condition, so it’s important to determine if your dry skin is the full extent of the issues or a symptom of the problem. During an-person consultation, patients will have the opportunity to explain their symptoms and undergo a skin-analysis that helps us customize a treatment plan.
Treatment for dehydrated skin at Dermatology Associates of Atlanta
Since dry or dehydrated skin is such a prominent issue for a sizable amount of the population, our practice uses proven and personalized methods of improving hydration that work for all skin types.
The fall and winter seasons are notoriously taxing on skin hydration because of the consistent dry air. If your dry skin isn’t a symptom of another dermatologic condition, our providers will recommend that you do the following to achieve healthy and beautiful skin:
- Cleanser: Throughout the day, your skin accumulates dirt, oil, and other substances. That’s why we recommend adding a daily cleanser to your routine. With a cleanser, you remove the harmful substances to reveal healthy skin.
- Moisturize: Moisturizing in the morning and evening can help prevent your skin from drying. Each person will react differently to a moisturizer, so it’s important to meet with an experienced provider at Dermatology Associates of Atlanta to ensure that you’re using the best brand or type that fits your unique needs. For more serious cases of dry skin, we can prescribe you a more advanced moisturizer to improve your skin hydration.
- Change your environment and routine: A lot of our day-to-day habits and activities affect the state of our skin. To combat dehydrated skin, we recommend that you drink plenty of water, avoid long or hot showers, wear gloves when using cleaning products, limit prolonged sun exposure, and apply moisturizer regularly.
