The holidays are officially over but winter has just begun.  It's that time again when I turn my focus from shopping for gifts, to shopping for skin care.  During the winter months, your skin is put through so much stress, and neglecting the issue can only enhance troubled areas.  Like your armpits (to name two).  That's why I'm super excited to be partnering with Dove to share a few tips on how to take better care of your skin during the winter months using Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant.

When I thought of my armpits, I used to think of only one thing: How to keep moisture out (even though this sort of thinking can be detrimental in the long run).  We are so concentrated on anti-sweat, that we sometimes forget that all are skin needs to be moisturized.  Not just our face before bed.  But don't worry, I was guilty of this too until I did some homework.  Turns out, Dove Advanced Care provides 48-hour odor and wetness protection, plus added skin care benefits for softer, smoother underarms.  It's almost too much to grasp when all I was asking for was not to be "sweaty." 

Below you will find my Tips on Treating and Caring for Winter Skin with guidance from Dove's very own Dermatoligist, Dr. Alicia Barba.

Tips on Treating and Caring for Winter Skin

All Body Parts:  How many times have you got out of the shower only to grab your towel and run to the closet getting dressed and moisturizing just your face? I'm super guilty of this especially in the colder months because It's just.  That.  Cold.  And being a Mom means literally doing everything quickly... Even using the bathroom.  But moisturizing all your body is essential to adding that "extra coat of protection" for seasonal changes. You wouldn't go outside without a coat to protect you right?  So, make sure all your skin is covered with a good layer of moisture.  Your body will thank you come bikini season!

Drink up:  As always, I can't have a post without stressing the importance of drinking lots of water!  For the New Year, grab a cute water bottle to help you remember to gulp-gulp.

Facials for all:  I never used to get facials until my sister-in-law got me one for my birthday.  Now, to maintain optimal skincare, I book a facial every season.  That's 4 times a year.  I know that can be hard to do, so visiting twice a year (like once in winter and once in spring) is great too.  And if you've fallen behind, you can always do an at-home sesh with drugstore masks and scrubs.  Just try not to exfoliate too often.  You won't want to dehydrate the skin.

Detox from the inside:  This one I truly enjoy.  Once it's cold I can't get enough of hot drinks.  Green Tea being one of my favorites.  It improves your skin's complexion, makes your skin healthy and helps flush out toxins.  This makes it one of my key elements in skin care during the winter. Two cups a day can really make a difference.

Underarm’s need Love too:  Often times, we overlook our armpits which can cause a number of issues in the winter.  Rough fabrics in sweaters can irritate your armpits if your skin isn't protected.   I personally suffer from random itchy pits that become inflamed post-shaving.  Using Dove's Advanced Care Caring Coconut Antiperspirant has soothed the area and improved the overall appearance of my skin.  It feels soft when applied and the smell is a delicate touch of coconut.  It’s just what you need to start your day right and with 48 hour protection, you can take it to bed which is where I tend to sweat the most.
