Getting Your Skin Back to Normal After an Illness

This an especially good topic for now, given that many people have had Covid-19 in the past 9 months.  What you’re describing is really challenging.  Many of our patients have gained or lost a significant amount of weight during this period. That affects our skin and the way we feel about ourselves.

I know you’re working on getting your weight back to normal.  Focus on healthy fats like olive oil and avocados, good lean protein sources, and eating frequent small meals if you appetite is still not great.  A good nutritionist could be a super helpful.  The weight gain will help fill out your face, and restore many of your natural contours.  A filler treatment like Voluma or Restylane Lyft might help you feel better while you’re gaining the weight back.  It will add volume.

A great basic regimen:


Gentle cleanser – Cetaphil or CeraVe from the drugstore are cost effective options

Triple Antioxidant – Our MadisonMD Triple antioxidant is just as effective and less expensive than the SC version.

Moisturizer – Again – you could just use CeraVe cream as a cost effective choice

Eye Cream –  Try the MadisonMD Eye Rescue

Sunscreen – Get the high zinc version (15-20%) if you are outside much – Try this Image product

Before Bed:

Gentle Cleanser like above

Moisturizer – you may just want to use the CeraVE again

Eye Cream – same as above

Retinol –  Try our new one, and follow the instructions on the back.  Start every other night and work up to nightly.

This will get you started.  Use this for 3 months, and you’ll really start to notice a difference.  Write back then and we’ll work on a adding a few more products!

Hope this helps,

Dr. Brandith Irwin
