Winter Skin Care From Sea to Sea

Winter Skin Care: West

Winter skin care advice for those on the West Coast depends on the region they live in, Sacramento dermatologist April Armstrong, MD, says.

"San Francisco has milder winters and the air is often less drying than inland weather," she says. On the coast, there tends to be more moisture than inland. San Francisco's well-known fog is also good for the skin, she says, because of its high humidity.

Central California can turn cold and dry in winter, so people there should moisturize their skin more.

Sunscreen is key to keeping skin healthy in states like California and Hawaii since they get more sunshine than other states during the winter.

That's especially true for winter skiers who can get an extra dose of UV radiation when the sun reflects off the snow.

Winter Skin Care: Pacific Northwest

The Pacific Northwest can get a lot of rain and some snow. Never mind that the moisture level outside is 100% thanks to all that weather. "When you heat indoor air, the relative humidity is very low," Seattle dermatologist Paul Nghiem, MD, PhD, says.

"You are more likely to need moisturizer in the indoor heated air for sure," he says.

He favors moisturizers that contain glycerin, and he says most people don’t put on enough moisturizer. Nghiem advises applying a layer of moisturizer thick enough that it doesn't absorb for about 30 seconds.
