3 Simple Tips for Softer Skin

The beginning of each season is always a good time to evaluate and update my skin care routine, especially when cooler months roll in and dry conditions hit. I don’t know about you, but the onset of fall can really wreak havoc on my skin! That’s why I was excited to partner with Dove to share tips for better skin. Over the past few weeks, I’ve tried to maintain a consistent routine to keep my skin looking refreshed and feeling soft. Though there’s a myriad of methods and products for skincare — for me, it really breaks down to three simple things:
1.) Stay hydrated.  |  Drinking enough water is important for many reasons, skin included! I always seem to have more energy and clearer, better skin when I’m conscious of drinking enough water. I once read you should aim to drink as many ounces in a day as what you weigh. So if you weigh 130 pounds, you should drink 130 ounces. To keep hydrated throughout the day, I love my bkr water bottle, which comes in a variety of fun colors. 
2.) Opt for healthy, natural foods.  |  A healthy diet works wonders for skin. Choose nutrient-rich foods, like leafy greens, whole grains and vegetables with a variety of antioxidants, for skin that looks radiant. Don’t forget to get enough protein and carbohydrates — those are important, too! For a little extra boost, I like these supplements found at Sephora.
3.) Use the right products.  |  Beyond taking an ‘inside-out’ approach, using the right products is a third component to skincare. I’ve been a longtime fan of Dove and this body wash to keep my skin feeling nourished, so I was happy to partner to try Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant. It’s one of those things that can get overlooked, but a good antiperspirant is something essential to your everyday routine, right? I use this Beauty Finish variety, which provides 48 hour protection and makes my skin soft and smooth. It also smells amazing and doesn’t get on my clothes, two major requirements in my book 😉

  • #ad No matter my age: the holiday season always feels magical. Each year, I enjoy keeping holiday traditions and embracing new ones. 🖤 With our baby arriving now only weeks away: we’re about to embark on an entirely new adventure — and I’m so excited that this will be our first holiday season with him. Because Thanksgiving falls within two weeks of my due date, I’m thankful my immediate family is traveling to us in Chicago to celebrate this year. Which means: this is the first time I’m “hosting” the holiday! (With plenty of help, of course.) 🦃 With hosting in mind — and being 38 weeks pregnant — I wanted to plan ahead as much as possible. My hope is to create a setting that will feel festive for both Thanksgiving and Christmas, so I went with a rustic winter look that I absolutely love for the season. I’m thrilled to be partnering with a favorite brand of mine @CrateandBarrel to prepare for the holidays this year.
