Ask Dr. Z
Why is my skin creased like an autumn leaf?
As we enter fall, you may notice your skin tone appears flat or dull. You may also feel as if fine lines are more noticeable, or your skin just doesn’t feel as supple and resilient as you’d like.
That’s because summer sun exposure and changes in fall temperature can cause cell turnover to slow down and deplete the skin of nutrients. Read more
Is it dry skin or a damaged moisture barrier?
I find that many patients who believe they have dry skin simply have a compromised moisture barrier.
Summer sun exposure can damage your skin’s moisture barrier, creating small cracks in the surface of your skin—invisible to the naked eye—that allow moisture to escape.
All I need is a moisturizer, right?
In my opinion, traditional moisturizers don’t do a great job of addressing this issue. They offer a temporary fix and keep you addicted to their use.
Instead, I recommend a product to repair the skin barrier and restore new cell skin growth—Wrinkle & Radiance Remedy is designed to do this. If you need additional moisturization, you can add Deep Moisturizer.
