Skin Care & Protection

By: Dr. Corey Hartman, Skin Wellness Dermatology During the winter, dry skin is probably the most common and maybe even one of the most bothersome skin conditions. During the wintertime, the drier air can suck the moisture out of our skin. And even things that we may not give a second thought like long, hot showers or our favorite soaps can make things worse.  This is why many people experience not only dry, but itchy skin, and even cracks in the skin that can be quite painful.  Sometimes dry skin may need some special attention, especially if you’re suffering from an eczema-based skin condition, and this may just mean that… read more

As we get older, the skin on our chest is going to show our age just like another part of the body, if not more so.  Then once they start to notice their chest, the main reason it bothers patients is the color and the fact that it starts to get kind of saggy. This is why getting rid of chest wrinkles really involves improving both the texture as well as the color that starts to change along with it. … read more

By: Dr. Corey Hartman, Skin Wellness Dermatology We all have our favorite influencers on Instagram. Whether they seem to live a lavishly fun lifestyle or be “in the know” on certain products or brands, we like to keep up with them and what they’re into. You like their fashion sense – so you shop the same brands. You like their hair styles – so maybe you try them out on your own hair. One thing you should not do? Automatically use the same skincare products. Listen, just because it works for one person doesn’t mean it’s going to work for you. Ever been let down after a visit to Ulta,… read more

By: Dr. Corey Hartman, Skin Wellness Dermatology If you know me at all, you know I’m a skin minimalist, and that’s why I have two goals when it comes to creating an anti-aging skincare regimen for my patients.  Goal #1: Make it effective.
