Summer is an AMAZING season for so many reasons (BBQs, heading to the shore, street festivals!), but the heat and humidity also means you may have to do some extra beauty maintenance. I was inspired by several new products from one of my favorite brands, Dove, to prepare for, and mask and cure some warm-weather specific beauty challenges.
Here are the three challenges, followed by the three products that can help:
Too Much Sun Exposure Results in Scaly, Dry, Moisture-Deprived Skin: Switch up your current soap and/or body wash, and give the Dove VisibleCare Toning Crème Body Wash ($7.49) a try instead! The formula is specially created to aid the skin’s elasticity and strength, while the ultra-creamy body wash has the highest concentration of Dove’s special NutriumMoisture technology with Vitamin E. Plus it promises an improved skin look in just one week-score!
No Matter What, You Feel Sweaty, Smelly, and Yucky- As if You Never Even Put Deodorant On: Go for a stronger, more effective option with the Dove Clinical Protection Antiperspirant/Deodorant in Original Clean ($7.99). This formula may be strong, but it also is dermatologist-recommended (is hypo-allergenic), hydrating (it has Dove’s signature ¼ moisturizers and Vitamins E & F), and actually soothes freshly-shaved skin. Plus, did you know it’s best to apply it at night, before bed? Yep, that;s right — you can also apply it in the morning but overnight it begins to get used to the body to enhance the 24 hour protection.
Hair is dry, frizzy, flat, dull, and/or brittle: Switch out your current conditioner for one that will go the extra mile for you — the Dove Intensive Repair Daily Treatment Conditioner ($4.74). Use it daily, replacing your regular conditioner, and leave on for one minute before rinsing. This conditioner goes deeper than repairing just the surface damage of the hair shaft – it goes into the hair fiber to leave it duly strengthened, incredibly smooth and nourished with Micro Moisture serum to also repel any future damage. AND it smells AWESOME!
Which of these products will you try this summer?
