5 Tips To A Moisturizing Winter Shower Routine

This post was written in partnership with Dove in celebration of National Healthy Skin Month.

Las Vegas is gorgeous around the fall season, but winter season is COLD! The hardest part about living in Las Vegas during the winter is the dry desert climate paired with the freezing air creates not-so-soft skin for me and my family. My skin always needs a little TLC during the winter seasons, and I trust Dove to help me through the blistering, dry weather for my skin.

With Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash, you can get softer, smoother skin after just one shower. With a rich lather and even more of the brand's gentlest cleansers, Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash rinses cleanly and quickly. The unique blend of cleansers and NutriumMoisture provide skin natural nourishment along with the rich lather you love. In case you didn't know, Dove is the #1 recommended brand AND also the #1 brand used personally by Dermatologist and Pediatricians at home!

With the winter months ahead, it's even more important to protect your skin from the weather and the harsh cold. Here are my favorite shower tips to keep my skin soft, smooth, fresh and clean for a moisturizing winter shower routine:

1. Let the shower run to its desired warm temperature. Don't let water get too hot, or it will burn and/or dry out your skin even more.

2. Use a loofah sponge, fluffy shower pouf or soft body brush and scrub gently to indulge your skin and senses. Dampen the pouf first and then add Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash to create a lather.

3. Gently use the pouf or brush in a circular motion, promoting the exfoliation of dead skin cells.

4. Relax – this is your “Me” time. Did you know that the most brilliant ideas have come from shower-time? Take this opportunity to relax and let those creative sparks connect so you can get ready for the day!

5. Rinse and pat skin dry with a towel. Rubbing the towel to dry only creates friction that can irritate skin.

I love using a loofah sponge because it exfoliates dead skin cells, but when it's cold outside, I need extra moisture to accompany my loofah! Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash recently won an Allure Best of Beauty Award for “Best Moisturizing Body Wash.”  It's AMAZING!!!
