WINTER SKINCARE ESSENTIALS: HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR UNDERARMS USING DOVE

This is a sponsored post curated by me on behalf of Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant.  It is based on a real and true trial of usage.  I highly recommend this products benefits. 

“When you look better, you feel better”, said my mom, as she went through her daily hygiene routine with us.  We, three girls (my sister and I) would tune in as if we were preparing ourselves to host a beauty seminar.  “Moisturizer is key”, she’d tell us.  Our adolescent selves would nod in agreement as we could only hope we’d be able to manage as beautiful skin as our mothers’ and our grandmothers’.

As a late 20 something, I’ve learned that it is an aspiration of most all women to have good skin!  We just want to look good in our skin.  Even those of us who thrive off of a full face of makeup and a runway outfit simply want to feel good in every part of our bodies.  From our underarms to the balls of our feet, most of us strive to perfect our skin the best way we know how.

It’s the least likely place to be seen, but the most likely place to be forgotten that it could be seen!  What might that be?  Your Armpits.  Ladies, effective skin care is choosing to make sure every inch of your body is nurtured.  Imagine you’ve gone to a winter wedding and a few drinks in, you decided to take off your cover-up.  You’re out on the dance floor and you’re getting obnoxious stares for reasons you are oblivious too.  Your friend’s Mother-in-law walks up to you and tells you, “Perhaps you forgot that your underarms were making an appearance too!”  Embarrassed, you slowly waltz back over to your shawl and wrap up.  Your social butterfly alter-ego retreats into a cocoon.

Whether you shave your armpits or not, it is important that you understand that taking care of that skin is a part of your big appearance.  Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant provides 48-hour odor and wetness protection, plus added skin care benefits for softer, smoother underarms.  So many things can irritate the skin causing redness, sweat bumps and more.  The last thing you want to do is not rectify the symptoms that come along with the agitated skin.  For me, shave bumps make prominent appearances. When you really think about it, you are running a blade across gentle skin follicles.  I deem it necessary to treat my skin accordingly.

Dove Dermatologist Dr. Alicia Barba says, “Underarm skin is sensitive and an area that shouldn’t be overlooked. Textures and fabrics in sweaters, undergarments, and t-shirts can irritate the skin. Underneath all those layers, you’ll need a product that keeps you hydrated and protected. Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant is formulated with moisturizers to help alleviate irritation and leave you with softer and smoother underarms.”  I’m taking heed of her knowledge and doing the best I can to offer my skin what it needs.

Underarm chaffing is also a common happening during the winter month.  It burns and is undeniably uncomfortable.  Indifference to the previous scenario chaffed armpits will not allow you to forget them.  It’s just like chapped lips, it’s noticeable and a nuisance.  Don’t neglect these symptoms as your skin is crying for resolve.  Remember, feeling your best goes deeper than a layer of makeup or a cute outfit.  It starts with feeling comfortable and refreshed.  In some cases just like lip chap, you may even want to apply Dove Advanced Care more than once!  It just feels that good as you apply it to those glowing glands.  Make no mistake, you don’t have to apply more than once because the product is that good!

If I’m on the go, my Dove Advanced Care goes with me. When traveling a long distance or in the tight quarters of an airplane, you’re going to want to keep yourself feeling fresh. Having deodorant handy is a must.  Especially if, you are traveling for work!  The last thing you want to do is be the life of the party for the wrong reasons.  Moreover, you should own the party with confident, clear and soft skin!  Often times, I have speaking engagements or networking events after work.  It’s nice to know that the scent is still rectifying body odors and best of all, my skin is in good shape.

Also, here’s a bonus tip on winter skincare from Dove’s dermatologist, Dr. Barba: “Lay off the intense exfoliation.  Over-exfoliating can strip the skin of its essential oils, leading to breakouts in the dryer, colder months. A misconception is that rubbing off dead skin cells daily will improve skin, when it actually can dehydrate it.”  I presented this tip last because it’s the foundation of good skin!  Treat yourself well, you guys!
