Hello, winter! Winter is one of those seasons that can be harsh on your skin. It is probably the harshest season on the skin for a few reasons- the air outside is very cold and very dry, while the air inside is very warm and dry.  We are always so prepared to dress for the winter, but we tend to abandon our skin. These factors can lead to moisture loss and eventually damage the skin effortlessly.

I teamed up with Dr. Alicia Barba, Dermatologist to Dove, to help you reboot your skincare routine this winter, with a few simple tips that will leave a lasting impact on your skin.

Slow down on the exfoliation

By definition, exfoliation is the removal of dead skin cells sitting on the skin’s surface.  Whether mechanical or chemical, over-exfoliating can strip the skin of essential oils which can lead to more breakouts and even dryer skin. Reduce how often you use your favorite exfoliant in the winter to prevent dehydration.

Invest in a hydrating cleanser

It’s a must to continue cleansing your skin in the winter, so reach for a cleanser that not only cleans the skin but replenishes moisture.  Pick a cleanser with a creamy, lotion-like texture that is free of sulfates.

Moisturize damp skin

The first few minutes out of the bathtub are critical to your skin in the winter. As soon as you step out, pat the skin, leaving it slightly damp. Apply a moisturizer that contains ceramides to keep moisture in, and lock dryness out.

Moisturize your body, beyond your face

Winter allows us to cover our bodies and that means sometimes neglecting those covered areas. Moisturize your entire body, your skin will thank you in the spring.

Show your armpits some love

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.
