Dr. Jeanine Downie Talks About Winter Skin

Dr_Downie.jpgKeri's national dermatologist spokesperson and accomplished professional Dr. Jeanine Downie took some time to answer a few questions for DeLush readers!

  1. How long have you been practicing in the area of dermatology?

    I have been practicing dermatology for 10 years.

  2. What is the most common mistake you see women repeating when it comes to winter skincare?

    I see women repeat not using enough moisturizer. A non sticky moisturizer like Keri Renewal Milk Body Lotion is perfect to use at least twice a day.

  3. Could you explain to our readers what happens to create that tight, itchy feeling that can often be associated with winter skin?

    Winter itch is related to the lack of humidity in the air which dries out the skin, hair and nails during the fall and winter months. The skin gets chapped and dry, and without proper lotion it can get very itchy.

  4. Do you recommend switching moisturizers in the winter?

    I recommended using moisturizers like Keri hand Cream all year long. Many people need to reapply moisturizer more frequently during the winter months

  5. Do you think there is a safest or most effective method for exfoliating in the bath or shower?

    The most effective method of exfoliation in the shower is to use a wash cloth, and not a loofah.

  6. What are your personal favorite ways to pamper your skin during cold weather?

    My personal favorite ways to pamper my skin includes using a humidifier, using lotion three times a day and using plenty of lip gloss.
