How to Stay Moisturized This Fall in 2023

Home » Learning Center » How to Stay Moisturized This Fall in 2023

Keeping your skin smooth and moisturized during fall and winter can be hard. The drop in temperature is often accompanied by drops in humidity and an increase in dry, hot air from heaters. This combination can be terrible on the skin. So when the seasons change, so should your skincare routine! Our Dermacare of Hampton Roads Experts put together this list of the top treatments and products to help you keep your skin smooth, healthy, and hydrated during the fall and winter!

Exfoliation is key

It might sound counterintuitive to exfoliate dead skin from your face during the fall and winter. Afterall, doesn’t that dead skin help lock in moisture? Our Dermacare of Hampton Roads experts say no. It’s important to remove dead skin in the fall and winter because it helps replenish the skin. Your skin cells dehydrate and die faster in the fall and winter. Exfoliating helps remove these dead cells, preventing dry flaky skin and allowing moisturizer to be more effective when applied.

Best treatments for exfoliating

Our Dermacare of Hampton Roads Experts recommend these three treatments for exfoliating the skin in the fall and winter.


Dermaplaning is an aesthetic treatment that exfoliates your skin and removes “peach fuzz.” During this service, someone will artfully scrape off dead skin and tiny hairs with a razor. It sounds scary, but it’s very safe when performed by a trained professional and it’s one of the best ways to remove dead skin.

When performing this service, our Dermacare of Hampton Roads Experts always use medical-grade products and a new, sterile blade for every treatment. They are also specially trained to avoid:

  • going too deep and damaging the skin (causing an abrasion)
  • cutting the skin
  • accidentally removing skin lesions and moles
  • performing this service on someone who is not a good candidate (yes, this is not a service everyone should receive)


Microdermabrasion helps to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin texture. This treatment gently lifts the skin surface as the device “sweeps away” the dead skin layer. This results in a deeper exfoliation and polish of your skin. Our advanced medical-grade form of microdermabrasion—DermaSweep—is completely painless, and is commonly referred to as the “lunch hour” procedure due to minimal side effects.

Dermacare Signature Facial

Our Signature Facial uses medical-grade products that can’t be found at an ordinary spa. This treatment is great for anyone who wants to remove any congestion in the skin and exfoliate. It’s also completely customized to your skin needs and goals. During a Signature Facial, our Dermacare of Hampton Roads Experts will gently clean your skin (or acne-affected area), perform any necessary extractions, then prep the skin for the next step in your treatment.

Staying Moisturized

Moisturizing during the winter is important because of the increased exposure to dry air. Dry air can suck the moisture out of your skin leaving it susceptible to flake, crack, and even get infections and outbreaks.

Best Treatments For Moisturizing

When you come into Dermacare of Hampton Roads, you’ll get a free consultation where one of our Dermacare of Hampton Roads Experts will customize a treatment plan based on YOUR skin type, concerns, and goals. With that, here are our favorite in-office treatments for skin hydration in the fall and winter.

It is also rich with fulvic acid, one of the most powerful antioxidants renowned for healthy and young-acting skin. This masque glides on like silk and contains hydrating and healing botanicals, increasing moisture and leaving the skin soft, glowing, and purified.
