Tips for Borderland Residents Suffering from Dry Skin

EL PASO, Texas (KVIA) -- In the battle against dry skin, Dr. Adrian Guevara, a local dermatologist at Epiphany Dermatology, provides valuable insights and recommendations for maintaining healthy skin in our arid climate.

Dr. Guevara, emphasizes the significance of adopting a skincare routine that includes the application of lotions, especially for young men who may be hesitant to prioritize skincare.

Contrary to common beliefs, Dr. Guevara suggests that factors such as diet have minimal impact on dry skin. Instead, he advocates for the use of specific skincare products to address this concern.

Watery lotions, while easy to apply, often provide temporary relief and are quickly absorbed by the skin.

Dr. Guevara recommends products like Cerave and Cetaphil for sensitive skin, highlighting their effectiveness in retaining moisture and promoting skin health.

Additionally, hypoallergenic options such as Vanicream and the Free and Clear line are recommended for those with sensitive skin.

For those seeking affordable yet effective solutions, Dr. Guevara suggests a surprising alternative: plain Vaseline applied to damp skin post-shower.

This economical option not only moisturizes the skin effectively but also helps lock in moisture for lasting hydration.
