1. Don’t Over-Exfoliate
Okay I’m not gonna lie, I have been guilty of over exfoliating. Why? I think many of us think or believed that if we exfoliate a lot that we will get soft and healthy skin. But that is the total opposite! If we exfoliate too much it can actually break you out because you are stripping your skin from its essential oils and it can actually dehydrate it. So what I’ve been doing is keeping exfoliating to a minimum, once every couple of weeks has done wonders.
After exfoliating and on a daily basis we want to make sure we keep our skin moisturized and hydrated. And I’m not talking about just our face. During the winter and colder months it is easy to forget to moisturize the parts of our body that we don’t show…but lets moisturize beyond the face and give extra love to those areas that we tend to forget about in the winter.
3. Care for your Underarms
Speaking of areas in our body that we tend to neglect…our underarms. Ladies, come spring and summer when we are wearing tanks and short sleeves we want to make sure our underarms are well taken care of. Ya feel me? 😀 The underarm area is sensitive and can get irritated pretty easy. So, I like to use a product such as Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant which not only has added skin care benefits for softer and smoother under arms, it also provides 48 hour odor and wetness protection. I have the Shea Butter which smells so, so good!
4. Bedtime Routine
Implementing simple steps into your bedtime routine to include skincare is another way to get your skin looking better in no time! 3 simple steps we can all take is 1. Wash your face 2. Apply a retinol and 3. Moisturize. That is it!
5. Drink Water
Last and certainly not least is to drink water! I know, we hear this all the time. But it is seriously so important to drink water, I notice that on weeks that I make it a point to drink water all day long my skin feels smoother and healthier. Find a cute cup or water flask that is going to help you get into it 🙂 And drink it up!
I know that incorporating these simple tips into your routine, such as drinking water, moisturizing and using a product such as Dove Advanced Care will help you reset your skin during these winter months and ready for the sunny days!
Love you all, until next time…
