( - If you live in Florida, then you may not think about what the changing seasons mean for your skin. While it's true that Florida does not go through the same type of temperature changes that other areas of the country experience, that doesn't mean that you should care for your skin in exactly the same way throughout the year. If you're not sure how to care for your skin during the winter in Florida, read on.


Winter brings cooler, drier air, and even if you don't notice it, your skin is likely to! Moisturization is necessary year-round, but particularly during the winter months, when dry air can leave your skin parched, rough, and dull. In addition to moisturizers, you may want to use a moisturizing cleanser or night cream, depending on your skin type. If your skin feels tight and dry after washing, it's a sign your skin is feeling thirsty.


In Florida, it's especially important to use sunscreen year round. Protective clothing, including hats, can help protect you from sun, wind, and other environmental factors.

Regulate Temperatures & Products

Choose gentle products to cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize your skin. Consult with a professional on what types of products are best for your skin, and which ingredients to avoid. Keep an eye on the temperature of the water when you wash your face or take a shower--overly hot water can strip oils from your skin that keep it healthy.

Humidify Your Home

You may not have control over the air outside your home, but in your own space, just say no to dry air! Investing in a humidifier is a great idea. Your skin will benefit from air with more moisture, and you'll breathe easier as you sleep.

Treatments to Brighten Your Face

If you'd like to treat your skin this winter, consider a non-invasive skin treatment, such as fillers, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, or laser treatments. These treatments are customizable and can provide subtle to dramatic results, depending on the type of treatment and goals for the procedure. Make sure to research any procedures you're interested in and seek help only from an expert dermatologist.

Speak with a Dermatologist

One of the best ways to come up with a customized skin care plan and keep your skin fresh and glowing all winter is to consult with an experienced dermatologist. Choose a doctor who has experience with cosmetic dermatology to help keep your skin looking as youthful as possible. Dr. Diane Walder of Miami is a renowned cosmetic dermatology specialist whose advice is well-respected among several major publications. Dr. Walder offers customized skincare advice, as well as a wide range of rejuvenation and anti-aging procedures. To learn how to take care of your skin all year and explore your options for skin treatments, contact Dr. Walder's Miami office at 305-866-2177 to schedule your appointment.
