I'm excited to partner with Dove to share some ways to maintain radiant skin this summer! As always, all opinions expressed are my own.
Whether you’re headed to an exotic island, a local beach or a backyard pool party… or even just traipsing around the neighborhood, you want your skin looking its best in the summertime, especially your face! Well, here are three simple ways to make sure your skin is soft and radiant this summer!
I know, drinking water is tough for many of us but the benefits are so worth it! Water helps to nourish, cleanse and hydrate our bodies from the inside out, helping our skin stay soft and supple throughout the summer’s heat. The standard is 8-10 eight ounce glasses of water per day but if that’s a real struggle for you, start with a glass a day and work your way up! 😉
Cleanse, but Skip the Soap
Don’t let that statement confuse you. What I mean is, watch what you’re cleansing with! Ordinary soaps, and even premium cleansing soap bars, tend to strip the skin of its natural oils and essential nutrients, having you running for your nearest moisturizer. But, as the #1 Dermatologist recommended skin cleansing bar, Dove Beauty Bar contains ¼ moisturizing cream to provide more radiant skin versus ordinary soap!
As you may know, I’ve been a regular Dove body wash user for some time and I’ve used the Dove Beauty Bar many moons ago as my bath bar. But, because I grouped it in with regular bar soaps, I had ever used it as a facial cleanser… until recently. The thing is, it’s not soap! It’s different. While ordinary soaps can leave your skin feeling tight and itchy, Dove Beauty bar doesn’t dry your skin out like soap. It’s so gentle and mild that it’s perfectly fine to use on your face! So, I gave it a shot.
While showering with the Dove Beauty Bar, I lathered a bit on my face. To my surprise, instead of feeling tight, my face felt soft and refreshed… basically, the same way the rest of my body feels after using Dove! I followed up the next morning by cleansing my face once again with the Beauty Bar and got the same amazing result.
Overall, Dove Beauty Bar provides superior care that other premium cleansing soap bars don’t. Period. In fact, Dove Beauty Bar guarantees to provide soft, smooth, healthy-looking skin in 7 days. As an avid Dove user, I’m already sold!
This afternoon, I and some of my influencer/blogger friends will be getting the royal treatment with mini spa facials featuring Dove Beauty Bar and I cannot WAIT!! I think I’ll go with the exfoliating bar for my facial for a deep clean and just an all-around relaxing massage. Stay tuned to my social channels today (Saturday, July 22nd), especially Instagram, for all the action leading up to and during our Dove Beauty Bar spa party!
Moisturize and Protect
Once your out the shower or fresh from cleansing your face at the skin, keeping your skin damp, reach for a light oil or, if your skin can take it, a dab of cocoa or shea butter to seal in that moisture. The latter especially works as natural sunscreen so it not only keeps your skin glowing but helps protect your precious skin from the harmful effects of the sun.
To be honest, after cleansing my body with the Dove Beauty Bar, it was a good couple of hours before I realized that I hadn’t moisturized my skin! How crazy is that?! But I still take this step to keep my skin protected throughout the day.
