Winter means frigid weather, snowball fights and warm, cozy sweaters. It also means thermostats turned up, wood burning stoves (at least in our house), and remaining indoors where the air lacks moisture. While winter may be the best time of year fashion-wise, it’s not so great for your skin, especially when you resort to soaking in a hot bath or turning up the heat in your shower.
I always say that the shower can be one of your first defenses against dry skin. But it’s time to learn the truth about your body wash…some of them can be harsh on your skin, making it drier when your goal was to moisturize! Dove Body Washes just got more caring by combining the brand’s mildest cleansers ever with NutriumMoisture™. Dove’s Deep Moisture Body Wash combined with a luke warm shower, will help keep skin from dehydrating. I know, I know–luke warm you ask? On the coldest day this seems impossible, but I promise you, you’ll notice the difference in your skin when making the switch from uber hot, steamy showers. (Not to mention that cooler water temps help to lock in hair color longer.)
Towel dry, just patting down skin, not completely drying off and then apply a moisturizing body lotion. Don’t forget your driest spots: knees, elbows, hands and feet!
