Picture it- fall has arrived, and you’re excited. You frolic through the leaves in your UGGs, Pumpkin Spice Latte in hand; your bun is CAYUTE! But your elbows and knees? Rough. Is that a dry patch on your neck? Yup, it is. But don’t fret, I suffer from dry skin as well. As the temperatures begin to cool down, and the air gets dryer, the skin on your body will start to show signs that some changes need to be made. Why not make those changes right in the comfort of your own shower.
All you need are these two clever tips to keep your skin soft and luxurious this fall, no matter what the temperature may be, and it can all be done in your shower.
Shower with cooler water
3 in 4 dermatologists say that women often damage their skin in the shower, thinking they are caring for it, and those bad habits start in the shower by cleansing with water that’s too hot. Hot water makes the skin dry and strips it of its natural oils. Reduce the temperature of the water you use to shower or bath to help the skin retain moisture. Cooler showers will also constrict blood vessels, decrease redness and boost circulation for a better glow.
Cleanse with a nourishing body wash
88% of dermatologists advise women to use a gentle cleanser when showering. When it comes to cleansing, all skin deserves gentleness. Only Dove Body Wash is made with 100% gentle cleansers, is sulfate-free and is the #1 dermatologist recommended body wash. With a rich lather, pleasant scent and results you can feel as soon as you step out of the shower, it’s no wonder dermatologists recommend it, I recommend it too!
