Ladies you know I take skincare routines seriously. I think it’s important to give your skin proper care in different times of the year depending on the seasons needs. I also love to try out new products from brands I trust, and evaluate them to potentially incorporate them in my day.

I’ve partnered with Dove to tell you all about their New Dove Dry Oil Collection featuring their Dove Dry Oil Beauty Bar and Dove Dry Oil Moisture Body Wash. I’ll also share a flowy red summer dress I wore to a friends baby shower over the weekend.

For such a happy event, I wanted to wear a dress in a bright, cheerful color. I chose this flowy V-neck piece in vibrant red. I started getting ready by giving some extra attention to my skin. Although I tried my best to maintain a healthy skin throughout winter, nothing calls for some extra pampering like a summer dress after you wrapped yourself in all the forgiving layers of winter.

I started by dry brushing first. You may remember that I’ve mentioned in a beauty post before that I use a shower brush to increase circulation. As a second step, I exfoliated to get rid of the dead skin cells on the surface of my skin.

I followed by cleaning my skin with The new Dove Dry Oil Collection. I’ve already been using the body wash from the brand, and enjoyed trying the new products.

Dove Dry Oil Beauty Bar, and Dove Dry Oil Moisture Body Wash help nourish and protect skin from dryness in the shower by effectively cleansing without leaving skin feeling dry. The new Dove Dry Oil Collection features a nourishing formula infused with Moroccan Argan oil beads to gently cleanse while helping to replenish nutrients to the skin.

As women we all desire softer, smoother skin however I learned that 1 in 3 women suffer from dry skin. It came as no surprise that 98% of women feel more confident when their skin is moisturized vs. dry. I loved how Dove Dry Oil Moisture Wash made my skin feel nurtured, and cared for, leaving it feeling smooth & silky. 

After I stepped out of the shower, I applied a body cream to lock in the moisture, and made sure to add sunscreen on top. I knew that we would spend a bit of the party outside if the sun came out, and I wanted to be ready just in case.

As my final touch, I applied a bit of body oil to my legs to give them that healthy summer glow. I felt like I especially needed that to feel my best in this bright dress.

The party was lovely, and it was a partially sunny day so we did get to spend some time outside. Can’t wait for really warm days coming up in a couple months. <3
