  • Tips for Taking Care of Your Skin This Winter

    Sweet skin.

    Winter can be harsh on your skin—low humidity, heated indoor air, and sunlight reflecting off of snow can all cause skin irritation and damage. Luckily, there are steps that you can take to protect your skin and keep it healthy throughout the winter. Talk to your dermatologist and take a look below to learn more about caring for your skin during the coldest time of the year.

    Moisturize Daily

    During the winter, air humidity naturally drops, which can make you more prone to dry skin problems. You can prevent dry skin by using a high-quality skin moisturizer at least once each day. Oil-based moisturizers can be particularly helpful during this time of the year. Using a humidifier in your home can also help you combat skin dryness.

    Exfoliate Gently

    In addition to your skin becoming drier in winter , you may also find that it becomes rougher throughout the season. You can help keep your skin smooth by exfoliating gently a few times each week. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells, allowing you to keep your skin smooth and prevent breakouts.

    Don’t Forget the Sunscreen

    You may think that cold weather makes you less likely to get a sunburn, but this is not the case. Any exposed skin is still susceptible to damage from ultraviolet rays from the sun. Sun burns are a particularly big risk when you are participating in snow sports like skiing or sledding. The thinner air at higher elevations combined with sunlight reflecting off  ice and snow make you more likely to suffer sunburns. Protect your skin by using a broad-spectrum sunscreen regularly on days you spend outside.

    At Swinyer – Woseth Dermatology , we offer high-quality skincare products, including sunscreen and moisturizers designed for sensitive skin, to help you keep your skin healthy and beautiful throughout the year. We also provide dermatological services like chemical peels, skin cancer screenings, and laser hair removal.

    As you’ll learn in this video, rosacea actually has a worse reputation than it deserves. Rosacea’s symptoms can be aggravated by a variety of factors, including sun exposure and alcohol consumption. While there isn’t a cure for rosacea, it can be controlled with help from a dermatologist.

  • Common Bacterial Skin Infections

    Skin Problem

    Bacterial skin infections are some of the most common skin problems that dermatologists encounter, and folliculitis, impetigo, and cellulitis are the most common types of bacterial skin infections. If you think that you may be suffering from a bacterial skin infection, contact your Salt Lake City dermatologist to find out what you should do to eliminate the infection. You can also check out the overview below to find out more about these skin infections and their treatment.

    Folliculitis

    Folliculitis is a type of bacterial infection that causes inflammation around a hair follicle. This type of infection may be caused by different types of bacteria, including Staphylococcus. The most common symptom of folliculitis is small red bumps on the skin. Folliculitis can be treated with either topical or oral antibiotics.

    Impetigo

    If you notice sores or blisters on your skin, you may be suffering from impetigo. This superficial skin infection is often caused by Staphylococcus bacteria. It is very common among young children in daycare or school settings, as it is highly contagious and is spread through skin contact. Treating impetigo with antibiotics can shorten the duration of the infection and help stop it from spreading to others.

    Cellulitis

    Cellulitis is a type of infection that can affect the skin and the layers of tissue beneath the skin. This bacterial skin infection is not contagious, and is often caused by Streptococcus or Staphylococcus bacteria. Cellulitis causes swelling, tenderness, and redness in the area of the infection, and may also cause a fever. It should be treated promptly with antibiotics.

    At Swinyer – Woseth Dermatology in Salt Lake City, our skincare professionals can diagnose and treat a variety of skin problems, including bacterial infections. We also provide cosmetic services like Botox, laser hair removal, and skin peels. To schedule an appointment, give us a call today at (801) 266-8841.
