Winter underarm care with Dove
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant.
I’ve partnered with Dove to share some amazing tips to reboot your skincare routine during the Fall and Winter months. Let’s be honest caring for your skin during these months can be brutal. I know at least for me my skin, it gets super dry so I have to constantly keep it moisturized and knowing the right products to use is so important. As the weather changes over from hot and humid to cold and dry, your skin may feel like it needs a fresh. Fall and winter are the perfect time to repair damage from the summer months and guard against dry skin and other cold-weather epidermal enemies. As we head into the cooler months, reboot your skincare routine with these simple, but high-impact tips from Dove Dermatologist, Dr. Alicia Barba. I listed some of my favorite tips Dr. Alicia Barba shared and will be using myself.
Lay off the intense exfoliation
Over-exfoliating can strip the skin of its essential oils, leading to breakouts in the dryer, colder months. A misconception is that rubbing off dead skin cells daily will improve skin, when it actually can dehydrate it.
Invest in a hydrating cleanser. For a long time I was doing this and not realizing I was doing damage to my skin.
Care for your Skin in every season
Dry skin is more than just annoying and uncomfortable, it can lead to serious skin problems such as worsening of eczema, psoriasis and can be a major cause of winter itch. Use a hydrating cleanser and make sure to moisturize the skin after cleansing or gently exfoliating.
Roll up those sleeves. Warm weather ensembles require us to pay attention to the skin we’re showing, but it can be easy to neglect our covered areas when we swap in our less-revealing winter wardrobes. You want to be active in treating the neck, chest, hands, and elsewhere all year long. Moisturize beyond the face. Fall and winter are the time to give extra care to the areas you tend to neglect. Come spring, your healthy skin will thank you. This is something I tend to forget to do but realized as I get older it’s so important.
Care for your underarms.
Underarm skin is sensitive and an area that shouldn’t be overlooked. Textures and fabrics in sweaters, undergarments and t-shirts can irritate the skin. Underneath all those layers, you’ll need a product that keeps you hydrated and protected. Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant is formulated with moisturizers to help alleviate irritation and leave you with softer and smoother underarms. I know my underarms are thanking me for this one, I love the shea scent. Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant also provides 48-hour odor and wetness protection
Get into a bedtime routine.
Bedtime is the best time to hydrate your skin. If you’re looking to decrease collagen breakdown, you might want to consider these three quick steps before hitting the hay: 1. Wash your face. 2. Apply a retinol. 3. Moisturize. Sunscreen for all seasons. Pack away the bikinis and sarongs, but keep the sunscreen right next to your daily moisturizer. Consider switching to a moisturizing sunscreen, a bit richer than your summer product. Harmful UV rays don’t take a break for cold weather. Even if you’re bundled up, sunscreen is a must for your face, and any other skin that’s not covered up.
I hope these tips help you ladies take care of your skin much better. No one is going to care for your body more than you so its start with your skin car routine. It’s definitely never too late to start. I know when I go on vacation I make sure to bring my essentials no matter what time of the year it is. You can check out more online!
