Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Now that September is finally here, it’s time for me to start working on a new fall beauty routine. I’m a big believer in switching up your skincare as the seasons change. I rarely use the same products for fall, winter, spring, and summer. In the fall, I like a simple skincare routine. I try to keep my products to about 5. At the beginning of fall, it’s still hot and then you get days where it’s cool and breezy. Fall also represents the start of fashion week. I spend an entire week running from show to show and I like to make sure I am looking and feeling my best. One of the things I make sure that I have in my skincare arsenal to keep me feeling confident during the changing temps and fashion week, is a good antiperspirant. I’ve partnered with Dove to share with you some of the benefits of their Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant.
Having a good antiperspirant like Dove Advanced Care keeps me odor and wetness free for 48 hours. I would not want to be sitting at a fashion show smelling a little questionable. So, that 48-hour protection is necessary. When it comes to antiperspirant, I think we only focus on odor and wetness,however, it’s equally important to choose an antiperspirant that can help improve your skin. Dove Advanced Care’s NutriumMoisture formula leaves my underarms feeling soft and smooth. When I wear sleeveless I can move around without being self-conscious about showing off my underarms.
Dove dermatologist, Dr. Alicia Barba, has all kinds of great skincare tips, especially for underarms. Whether you suffer from irritation or uneven skin tone, Dr. Barba has the answers. I asked her a few skincare questions and she shared her tips with me.
What is the best skincare product(s) to help with dark spots and discoloration?
To remedy dark marks on your underarms, use a deodorant that contains calendula, an ingredient known to help restore skin to its natural tone. I recommend Dove Advanced Care in Clear Tone.
Is it better to shave or get laser hair removal for underarms?
Laser Hair Removal is a necessity in my opinion as you will be almost 100% hair free forever. I say, almost because most women will still sprout a hair or two per armpit after laser hair removal. However, it is totally worth it.
How many times a day should you apply antiperspirants?
If you’re using a good antiperspirant, you should only need to apply once a day. The way antiperspirants generally work is that the active ingredient temporarily blocks the release of sweat from the sweat ducts. The salts dissolve into the skin and forms a protective layer over the mouth of the sweat ducts, which reduces perspiration in the underarm. Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant offers 48 hours of odor and wetness protection (so you don’t need to worry about re-applying), plus skincare benefits with its NutriumMoisture for softer, smoother skin.
Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant comes in 15 fragrances ranging from pomegranate lemon verbena to plum and sakura blossom.
