It’s official… winter weather is here so it’s time to prepare your skin to get ready for the coming frigid temperatures and cold winds.

According to Dr. Margo Weishar of Springhouse Dermatology in Philadelphia, PA, “When winter arrives and the heat goes on, the humidity in the air drops and the skin dries out.

It’s more important than ever to focus on gently exfoliating away the surface of the skin, adding lots of moisture, and of course, never forgetting the sunscreen!”

If you have patches of raised or red bumps on the backs of the upper arms and outer thighs that feels rough to the touch, it’s likely keratosis pilaris (KP).

The popular Brazilian butt lift or BBL, as it is more commonly known, comes with some risks, especially if you aren’t careful about the doctor you choose.  According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS), the BBL procedure has been shown to have the highest rate of complication and even death in extreme cases.  In fact, as many as 1 in 3,000 people who undergo the procedure die, or 0.033 percent, compared with 0.002 percent for all office-based cosmetic procedures, according to a 2016 study

Winter will be here before we know it, and it’s important to be prepared to help prevent your skin from feeling the effects of the drops in both the mercury and humidity. According to Beverly Hills dermatologist and founder of Skin Five, Dr. Ava Shamban, “Dry cold winter air dehydrates the skin leading to chapping and cracking,” but there are steps you can take to protect the skin from the effects of this seasonal change.

Among them, “Rethink your skin routine. Use a gentle cleanser instead of a soap that will over-dry your skin, and apply moisturizer to slightly damp skin at the end of your shower (while still in the shower) to seal in moisture,” she advises. Using a humidifie
