Keeping My Skin Beautiful

As many of you know all too well, the heat wave we've had lately can do a number on your skin. My skin always dries out when it's too hot or cold. I always try to drink lots of water and use lotion regularly, but sometimes that just isn't enough. Considering that I have an almost four month old, I don't always have time to pay attention to my skin either. :)

When your skin isn't beautiful, you just don't feel beautiful!  I think that, right after you have a baby, it is so important to feel like yourself again.  Whether it's getting your nails done, having an awesome haircut, or feeling beautiful in your own skin, a new mom needs to feel like a million bucks (without having to spend it!).

That's why I was so excited to get the opportunity to review Dove's new VisibleCare™ Softening Crème Body Wash! Since I have started using it, it has been a total upgrade to my skin care regimen. One of the first things I noticed is that this is a really rich, thick body wash. It smells great (just a hint of a floral smell, but not overwhelming), and washes off cleanly. It's funny how excited you get for a shower when you're a new mom. :) This made that “me time” even better...I felt like I was at a spa when I used it!

The best part though - I've used it daily for a few weeks now, and after just a few days, I was noticing a big difference in my skin. It knocked out the dry skin and actually made my skin softer (thanks, in large part, to the highest concentration of NutriumMoisture technology of any Dove product). Considering that we are right in the part of the year that is the worst on my skin, I was very impressed!

Dove is currently introducing a Renewing Crème and Toning Crème variety of their VisibleCare™ line too, and I can't wait to try them if they are as wonderful as this body wash has been. I've always loved their other skin care products, and now I'm officially hooked on their body washes too!

I think a big part of looking beautiful is looking healthy. Dove's VisibleCare™ Softening Crème body wash has helped my skin look it's best during the part of the year when you're showing off your skin the most! I feel better in my own skin after using this for just about a week.
