I’m excited to partner with Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant to talk about different ways to stay beautiful this winter.
When winter hits, your main concern is keeping warm. But the deep freeze shouldn’t stop you from attempting to look and feel your absolute best. To help you out, I came up with just a few winter beauty tips to help you survive the season and look great doing it!
Adjust Your Hair Care Regimen
The lack of moisture in the winter air tends to dry out our hair. If you have naturally curly or kinky hair that’s already prone to dryness, this only aggravates things. To combat this, you may find it necessary to adjust your routine to include more deep conditioning and using heavier products when moisturizing. Protective styles will also help you retain moisture as the chill sets in.
Protect Your Kisser
I’ve become a little obsessed with keeping my lips moist, and here’s why: did you know that your lips don’t have any oil glands? Yep! This is why they get irritated, dry and chapped so easily. Much like our hair, the cold air only makes it worse. Without the benefits of natural oils to protect them, our lips depend on what we provide them to stay moisturized.
So, especially in the wintertime, keep some sort of emollient lip balm in your purse and apply some before heading out or before apply your favorite lippie. I never leave home without my cocoa butter stick!
Don’t Skimp on the Moisture
The saying “summer bodies are made in the winter” applies to the condition of your skin as much as it does physical fitness. Cute sandals and tank tops will look even better if you take care not to neglect heels, elbows and other hidden spots as we tend to do in the winter. Because we cover up everything in the colder months, we may skip moisturizing certain areas that go unseen.
“Moisturize beyond the face”, says Dove Dermatologist, Dr. Alicia Barba. “Be active in treating the neck, chest, hands, and elsewhere all year long.” Don’t wait until summertime to do something about dry skin. I use winter to give those areas some extra TLC with heavier creams or butters to keep them moisturized longer.
Care for Your Underarms Too
Speaking of unseen areas, your underarms are another place you may not think about needing moisture. In the past, underarm discoloration from irritation and itchiness sometimes kept me from going sleeveless. Has that ever happened to you?
Well, according to Dr. Barba, “underarm skin is sensitive and an area that shouldn’t be overlooked”. The textures we were this season especially can cause irritation. “Underneath all those layers, you’ll need a product that keeps you hydrated and protected.”
Thankfully, Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant provides 48-hour odor and wetness protection plus added skin care benefits, alleviating irritation for softer, smoother underarms. A quick swipe of Dove Advanced Care not only keeps me feeling fresh throughout the day but now, my underarm skin is noticeably smoother and more even-toned with no irritation. I no longer fear embarrassing “nervous” sweat and I’ll rock all the sleeveless tops I want come summer!
