Grooming Hacks for Fall and Winter Weather

December 1, 2016
00:0000:00

Keaney.jpg

Dr. Terrence Keaney, expert Dermatologist for leading men’s grooming brand, Dove Men+Care joins eHealth Radio and the Dermatology & Skin Care Channels to talk about "Grooming Hacks for Fall and Winter Weather".

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Dr. Terrence Keaney discuss the following:

1. Does fall and winter weather affect my skin as much as summer weather?

As you think about skincare in the cooler months, one of the biggest factors that affects skin is the decrease in temperature and humidity. In the summer you might not need to moisturize as much, but the cold weather is very drying so you'll need to supplement your skin with a moisturizer. When choosing a body wash or facial moisturizer for the fall months, avoid products that contain strong chemicals such as benzoyl peroxide, which can be overly drying. If you typically use an acne product that contains these ingredients, it may be a good idea to dial back on use in the winter, since they can cause skin to be red and irritated.

2. Do I need to use sun protection in the fall or winter?

Just because it isn't summer anymore doesn't mean you're off the hook when it comes to sun protection. Fall and winter months are still full of sun exposure, and sun damage is the number one aging accelerator. To keep your skin looking young and healthy, use a moisturizer with SPF to protect against harmful sun damage – I would recommend a broad spectrum sunscreen that SPF 30 or greater.

3. Should I use the same deodorant all year long, no matter the season?

With the temperature dropping, you might not be sweating as much as the warmer months, so you could get away with swapping your strong summer antiperspirant for a lighter deodorant. However, a lot of guys forget that they still sweat between the layers caused by drastic temperature changes going from outside to inside, and back outside. If you're wearing a heavy wool sweater or another fabric that doesn't breathe, consider using a strong but gentle antiperspirant like Dove Men + Care Clinical Protection Antiperspirant Deodorant Solid to keep you dry.

4. Is bar soap bad for my skin?

There is a big misconception about bar soaps. People think they're dirty and foster germs but there are no reputable studies that say there's more bacteria growing on bars. However, there are some brands of soap that can be harmful to skin, if they contain harsh, aggressive cleansing ingredients that strip skin of natural oils and lipids. I recommend a bar with moisture built in, like the Dove Men+Care Clean Comfort Body & Face Bar, which has a mild formula that contains Dove’s signature ¼ moisturizing cream to replenish moisture in the skin’s outer surface layer.

5. Will the change in seasons affect my hair?

Cooler temperatures can bring adverse effects to hair as well. Similar to your skin, hair is composed of a similar keratin protein, which can get dehydrated and become fragile if not cared for correctly. A hydrating and moisturizing shampoo like Dove Men+Care Complete Care Fortifying 2-in-1 Shampoo and Conditioner can prevent breakage if you're growing out your hair and can help keep your hair's summer luster.

TIP: If there’s one thing that you’ll take away from our conversation today, and hopefully carry through to your grooming routine, it’s that the change is seasons does take its toll on hair and skin. Make sure to listen to your body and take note of any changes, such as dry skin, and think about how to add hydration and moisturization into your daily routine.

Terrence Keaney, M.D. is a Board certified dermatologist with specialized training in cutaneous laser, hair, and dermatologic surgery. Dr. Keaney graduated from University of Virginia School of Medicine at the top of his class and was elected as a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha national medical honor society. His comprehensive dermatology training included a dermatology residency at the University of Miami (FL), a clinical research fellowship at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), and a fellowship in laser surgery at the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery.  He currently practices as the Associate Director of W for MEN, the male-focused treatment center at the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery.

Dr. Keaney is an advocate for the “personalization” of dermatology. He recognizes the importance of customizing dermatologic care based on the individual characteristics, needs, and preferences of his patients. Most notably, Dr. Keaney has become a pioneer in gender-specific dermatology. Dr. Keaney begins the first step to treatment personalization by recognizing the importance of gender, specifically its influence on anatomy, skin function, and behavior. Utilizing the latest laser, light, and energy-based technologies, his innovative and differentiated approach to dermatologic treatment provides superior results for both men and women.

Dr. Keaney co-founded the nation’s first cosmetic, hair, and laser surgery center for men. His extensive clinical and research experience in the unique dermatologic needs of male skin and hair allows him to provide the most effective care to his patients. Dr. Keaney understands the needs of his aging male patients and offers the latest technologies to address hair loss, body contouring, and jawline enhancement. In the realm of hair regrowth treatments, Dr. Keaney is one of the few doctors in the world to offer robotic hair restoration surgery.

His expertise in the function of gender as it concerns dermatologic treatment has made him a frequent speaker at medical professional meetings and in the media.
