Join me and Dove in celebration of National Healthy Skin Month and reevaluate your skincare routine.
I’ll be honest: once summer ends, it’s really easy for me to forget to take care of my skin. Even in California, where the sun’s always out, it just seems less urgent — although that’s anything but the case. Not only do we still have to be worried about sun damage during fall and winter, but we have to be on the serious offense in terms of hydration.
I don’t know about you, but my favorite antidote for the chills during this season is a very steamy shower or bath. Unfortunately, hot water is actually the last thing that can help my skin, since it washes away the natural oils that keep it moisturized. Add that to the sudsy, stripping body washes most of us use and… yikes! Well, I don’t see myself giving up the hot shower ritual any time soon, but something’s gotta give to keep my skin happy.
With National Healthy Skin month actually being in November, it’s a good reminder to be paying attention to your skin and skincare routine year round. So who did I turn to for a gentle cleanser without sacrificing the relaxation? Dove, duh!
I’ve mentioned before how I’ve always loved all of Dove’s creamy body washes, but this classic one is my favorite. The Dove Deep Moisture Nourishing Body Wash with NutriumMoisture contains Glycinate, an ultra-mild cleanser found in many high end face products. It gently cleanses skin while providing a super rich lather that every girl needs for a relaxing shower.
While this is an oldie-but-goodie for me, I love that it is also available in pump packaging! We go through body wash pretty quickly in my household, but buying larger bottles is always a pain to actually get the product out. The pump makes it easy to just stick in the corner of the tub and dispense product onto my loofahs.
Since my skin not only tends to turn scaly in cold weather but also has been becoming more eczema prone, the nourishing effect this body wash has is my #1 reason I love it. Without any other steps at all, I can step out with touchable softer, smoother skin after one shower. Once you try it for the first time, it’s pretty obvious why the formula won an Allure Best of Beauty Award for “Best Moisturizing Body Wash”, or why it’s the #1 Dermatologist and Pediatrician recommend brand and also the #1 brand that Dermatologists and Pediatricians personally use at home.
You can grab the Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash in several different sizes ranging from $4.49-$8.99 at your local drugstore. Find out more on Dove’s website.
