There’s Cold Weather Ahead: Is your ‘skin care wardrobe’ winter-ready?
You may have already taken your sweaters out, and moved the winter coats to the front of the closet. It’s that time of year again. Just like your clothing wardrobe changes to make the seasons tolerable and enjoyable, changes in your skin care routine can help you transition through changes in climate.
An arid, dry atmosphere can cause the skin to lose moisture quickly, resulting in irritation, roughness, or flaking. To treat and prevent Winter Skin, consider changing up your products’ consistency and potency. Here are some tips for winterizing your skin care wardrobe:
Consider a switch to a richer moisturizer in the winter months.
Dr. Erickson’s winter favorite, Obagi Hydrate Luxe, consistently delivers moisture for 8 hours after application! In addition to it’s hydration-boosting qualities, its luxurious and velvet-like texture makes it a joy to use.
Don’t give up on your anti-wrinkle treatment, swap it out!
Even if you’re a seasoned tretinoin pro, extremely dry winter months can cause even your usual products to dry out the skin. Avoid ditching your evening exfoliant (for fear of excessive dryness) by swapping your Tretinoin cream for Renova.
Renova is a gentle –yet still prescription strength- wrinkle-fighting tretinoin in a creamy, emollient base. With Renova’s moisturizer-like qualities, you won’t miss a beat of your anti-aging routine, no matter how cold and dry it gets!
Upgrade your anti-aging products.
Winter sun is just as harmful as the sun all year ‘round. Be sure to keep up on your antioxidants and sunscreens to prevent damage to your skin.
To boost hydration, brighten, and protect, we love TNS Essential Serum. Hylauronic Acid plumping spheres smooth fine lines for instant gratification during party season, while a creamy blend of peptides and antioxidants protect and nourish.
All products mentioned above are available at Erickson Cosmetic Dermatology.
Regimen assessments and consultations are complimentary.

Erickson Dermatology Launches in Chicago
Hi, my name is Elizabeth Weiler, Practice Manager and Aesthetic Director at Erickson Dermatology. I will be one of the contributors to Erickson Dermatology’s blog. If you are reading this, You are either digging way back in our archives, or you are embarking on this journey with us! So, let’s start with who we are and what we are all about.
Who we are:
Dr. Quenby Erickson is a practicing board certified dermatologist.
Dr. Erickson received her Fellowship Training in Mohs Micrographic Surgery and Procedural Dermatology (at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas) and is a fellow of the American College of Mohs Surgery, a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology, and a member of the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery. (WHEW, if you try reading that out loud, you’d need to take a deep breath there) For more info on Dr. Erickson, click here.
At Erickson Dermatology, we will primarily offer cosmetic services like laser treatments and rejuvenation, VISIA skin analysis, BOTOX and fillers, chemical peels, and Hydrafacials. Our product lines include SkinMedica, Obagi Medical Products, Revision SkinCare, and Latisse.
So, why Erickson Dermatology?
Dr. Erickson fell in love with the city of Chicago, and decided it was time to open a cosmetic dermatology practice here. Living in the city, she saw that there was a gap that needed to be filled: people who needed the expertise of a board-certified dermatologist sometimes had to wait months to be seen. Additionally, waiting room times were ultra long, and people often described the doctor rushing, maybe even backing out of the room as they tried to ask their questions. So, Dr. Erickson set out to provide a whole new experience. Our cosmetic dermatology office is all about the client experience. Dr. Erickson’s vision is to provide a five-star experience, that’s convenient for you. You won’t find long waiting room times or a rushed appointment here. It’s all about you. This is your time.

Our goal is to get you in when you desire to be seen. No time to come down to the office? We can schedule you a dermatology on demand cosmetic consultation via Skype.
