Now that it’s November, things are officially cooling off around here and it’s time to start thinking about winter skin care. I’m a firm believer that it’s never too early to prepare yourself and your body for upcoming things. So, now is the time to stock up on some essentials that will prevent those nasty problems we can have in the colder months. Disclosure:
Winter Skin Care
I actually try to have a fairly consistent beauty routine, year round. However, I do switch products during the colder months to aid in moisturization and smoothness. So, my winter skin care tips aren’t really that different than my regular ones, but I do add in more moisturizing products.
- Cleanse. It’s good to start with a clean base. I typically use a creamy cleanser (I think those are less irritating to my skin) to get my skin clean in the winter. I also try to exfoliate so that I don’t have to deal with the dry, crackly skin that some people encounter during the colder months.
- Moisturize. For my winter skin care, I tend to use a thicker balm or butter for my body (versus a regular lotion that I use in summer) and add in a nice facial lotion product. That helps keep my skin from cracking.
- Use Dove Clear Tone Deodorant. I realize this may not initially come to mind when I mention winter skin care. However, shaving can be harsh on underarm skin; in fact, 32 million women in the U.S. experience underarm red and dark marks that result from shaving irritation. As a result of shaving, underarm skin loses 50% more moisture, which can lead to dryness and irritation (key winter skin care problems).
Dove Clear Tone Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant is designed to reduce red and dark marks in just two weeks, while also providing 1 / 4 moisturizers to replenish skin after women’s daily shaving routines. Specially formulated with Calendula and Sunflower Seed Extracts, Dove Clear Tone accelerates the natural skin renewal process to help restore skin to its natural tone.
Dove Clear Tone also offers 48-hour odor and wetness protection and comes in four variants including new Pink Rosa – a floral and fruity fragrance. Dove Clear Tone is available at drugstores nationwide. You can find more information at Dove.com.
I love Dove Clear Tone Deodorant because it keeps my underarms moisturized, which is a key step to avoiding future problems. I just think that whole body moisturization is the route to go in the colder months. I’d rather prevent unsightly problems than deal with them.
So, do you have any winter skin care tips to share?
