Anyone else get the worst skin in the winter??


Living in a dry, cold climate like Utah takes a toll on my skin. I used to never put on lotion or take care of my skin like I should. That’s changed since I’ve gotten older and I’m excited to share a few of the tips I’ve picked up along the way!

Be sure to check out my ultimate list of skin and beauty tips for busy moms, here!

How can I protect my skin in cold weather?

Give Your Underarms The Care They Need
My hands usually take the biggest hit in the winter, but this year, I started noticing irritation and itchiness around my underarms. I’ve NEVER had that before. All of those winter sweaters may be cute, but they can also cause some serious irritation. Dove Dermatologist, Dr. Alicia Barba suggests using a product that keeps you hydrated and protected like Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant.
Since I made the switch to Dove Advanced Care the irritation has disappeared! I love that it provides 48-hour odor and wetness protection, plus added skin care benefits for softer, smoother skin. My underarms smell amazing and I’ll never go back to another antiperspirant again! 

Don’t Exfoliate Too Often
I never realized how important exfoliating was for your skin. It helps slough off the dead skin cells so that your products absorb better. However, over-exfoliating can strip the skin of its essential oils, leading to breakouts in the dryer, colder months. You should not be exfoliating skin every day! I was doing it 2-3 times a week, but I’ve cut back to just once a week now. 

Always Use a Sunscreen
This was another important part of any skincare routine that I never paid attention to, but I’ve since changed my ways! Your face needs sun protection just like the rest of your body. I use a moisturizer that contains SPF, but another way you can protect your skin is using a foundation that has SPF in it. 
Establish A Bedtime Routine
I heard someone say once that the only way she would go to sleep with her makeup on is if she had been hit with an elephant tranquilizer haha! Ever since then I’ve always made it a point to take my make up off and wash my face before bed no matter how tired I am. Dr. Barba says that bedtime is the best time to hydrate your skin, so an easy schedule to remember is 1. Wash your face. 2. Apply a retinol. 3. Moisturize.

I Hope You Try These Winter Skin Care Tips!
