Winter Skin. It’s a thing. It’s not pretty. Being raised in Florida, all I ever had to worry about were the humid days and how to control the inevitable frizzy hair. Since moving to North Carolina, I’ve had to endure a huge climate change. Even though we may not be pummeled by snow, like true northerners, it’s still wicked cold up here. Winter skin does not only create dull and even ashy skin, it’s annoyingly flaky and itchy too. I’ve done my share of research on how to battle this yearly foe and I thought I would share with you all my top 3 (and trusty) tips for winter skin care survival, with a little help from Dr. Alicia Barba. Sound good? K, cool. Let’s get right to those!

SO, what’s the first thing you think of when trying to brighten up dull and dry skin? For me, outside of the obvious hydration, I think of removing the dead skin via exfoliation. While exfoliating can be great, it’s actually a no no during the winter months. Dr. Barba says; over-exfoliating can strip the skin of it’s essential oils, leading to nasty breakouts. This whole process just dehydrates your skin. Instead, invest in a hydrating cleanser! Moisturize that skin girl!

Roll up those sleeves! Our winter wardrobe hides our skin from the outside world and from us as well. We tend to ignore those legs, and arms. Leaving them looking a little reptilian. Be intentional and moisturize beyond the face. Those areas need the extra care too!

Care for your underarms! Did you know that underarm skin is sensitive? You wouldn’t think so, seeing as though its not always the smoothest. But its true. Dr. Barba says that T-textures and fabrics in sweaters can irritate that part of the skin. You’ll definitely need a product that will keep you hydrated and protected.
Dove Advanced Care
 is formulated with moisturizers to help alleviate irritation and leave you with softer and smoother underarms.

So a quick recap on these 3 tips:

Don’t over-exfoliate

Hydrate all of your skin

Care for your underarms

Personally, I can tell you that since I started using

Dove Advanced Care I’ve noticed softer  underarms. Not to mention, it provides 48 hour odor and wetness protection. If you haven’t had a chance to try it for yourself, next time you’re at the store, add it to the list.m, and be sure to check out Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant here You’ll thank me… and can we talk about those delicious scents. Oh. My. Personal fave is the restore nutrium moisture! SO good.

Now you know… fight off that winter skin, ladies!

XOXO, terri.
