Dr Oz: Is Dry Skin Worse During The Winter?
When it comes to dry skin, there are a lot of myths, which is why Dr Oz wanted to tackle two of the biggest ones. On behalf of The Dr Oz Show‘s partnership with Eucerin, Dr Oz welcomed dermatologist Dr Elizabeth Tanzi. First, one woman admitted that she thought dry skin was only an issue during the winter. Dr Tanzi explained that it’s actually a myth, because there are a lot of conditions throughout the year that can lead to dry skin.
During colder months, we have wind, dry indoor heat, and hotter shower, which can all strip the skin of its natural oils. But in the warmer months, there’s more sun exposure, salt, chlorine, and other factors that can dry out the skin as well.

Next, a woman named Lauren tweeted Dr Oz sharing that she does everything to keep her skin hydrated, but hre skin still feels dry. Is it possible to repair dry skin? Thankfully, Dr Tanzi said you can repair the damage. The key is use a good quality moisturizer regularly, like the Eucerin Intensive Repair, which locks moisture in and improves the condition of the skin. Dr Oz further explained that a moisturizer like the intensive repair will gently exfoliate the dead skin cells while applying a barrier to keep moisture in.
Dr Oz: Is Dry Skin Genetic?
Dr Tanzi reported that factor for dry skin include age, harsh beauty products, and dry surroundings. Genetics can certainly factor into that though, which is all the more reason to use a good moisturizer every day to keep the skin healthy and in good condition.
