Today, we’re covering all things related to winter skincare: how the changing season impacts your skin, daily tips for optimizing the appearance and health of your skin, and some incredible skin treatments that are perfect for the winter.

Seasonal Changes Affect Your Skin (Even in Florida)
It might be tempting to roll your eyes at the idea of a Florida winter having much of an impact on your skin (especially if you’re originally from a colder climate). However, winter does bring about some changes that can genuinely impact both the look and feel of your skin. For one, the cooler temperatures and reduced humidity of a Florida winter, though resulting in relatively mild weather, can cause dryness that you may not experience the rest of the year. When left unaddressed, dryness can easily turn into premature wrinkling and lines. Another extremely common side effect of a Florida winter with massive skin effects is that, during the cooler months, it can be easy to forget to put on sunscreen. This is a major faux pas – no matter how cold it might be outside, it’s necessary to apply sunscreen to your face, hands, and all other exposed parts of your body every day you go outside. This is crucial to preventing wrinkles, lines, and – most importantly – skin cancer.
Daily Tips for Fresh, Beautiful Skin
The best thing you can do on a daily basis to make the most of your winter skincare is stick to a go-to routine consistently. Every morning, wash your face with a gentle cleanser, moisturize, and apply sunscreen. Before bed, repeat the morning’s steps (minus the sunscreen) and, if you’d like, you can use an eye cream for extra moisture and/or serum that’s rich in Vitamin C to help promote smooth and even skin. Stick to your skincare routine as consistently as you can not just during the winter, but year-round, for optimal results. Moisturizing your skin is crucial for the drier winter months. Make sure you go with a gentle, dermatologist-approved moisturizer that sits comfortably on your skin.
