Q: Winter is wreaking havoc on my skin—please help!
Licensed esthetician Catie Wiggy of MyChelle Dermaceuticals responds:
Whether you’re battling freezing temps, harsh winds or worse, winter is cruel to skin. Fluctuations in temperature and humidity outdoors, plus artificial heat filling our indoor spaces, can have drying and dehydrating effects. Pores become clogged with debris and skin can suffer from a buildup of dead cells, leaving it looking dull, tired and run down.

Did you know the skin starts to age naturally in your mid-20s? Just when you’re about to kick off adulthood, you start to get old. Go figure, right? As we age, the production of collagen—an essential protein that acts as the framework to our skin—starts to slow. Furthermore, the elastin in our skin, which is responsible for keeping things nice and firm, demises and can even break down. Dead skin cells start to accumulate because they no longer shed as quickly, and turnover of new skin cells starts to decrease. Ultimately this leads to fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin, which can start to become apparent as early as your 30s.
