Summer (Skin)Care!

August 18th, 2015


This post was sponsored by Dove but all opinions are my own.

I grew up in New England, so I’ve gone through my fair share of freezing winters!  But truthfully, I’m a summer girl at heart.  Give me a sunny day and a spot on the beach, and I’ll happily stay put for as long as I possibly can!

But sunny summer days can take a toll on your skin, even more than in the chilly winter months. During the winter, I’m always careful to be sure that I moisturize and keep my skin hydrated, but during the summer when I’m running around outdoors, it can be harder to remember.

So I was incredibly excited to try new Dove Limited Edition Summer Care Beauty Bar and Body Wash!  These new products are specifically formulated for summer skin care needs, with gentle exfoliating beads that leave skin smooth and naturally glowing. It’s important to reevaluate your beauty routine every season to make sure that you’re doing everything that you can to keep your skin healthy and gorgeous. After all, you’re probably showing it off more in the summer, so it’s extra important to make sure it’s smooth and glowing!

I’ve been a big fan of Dove products for a long time, and one of the biggest reasons is their NutriumMoisture technology. It sounds like a mouthful, but I’ve found that Dove Body Washes and Beauty Bars really leave my skin smooth and refreshed without feeling heavy or greasy. That’s especially important during the summer when hot days call for crisp, clean products, but it’s also important year-round, no matter what climate you’re in!

Dove Summer Care Body Wash features a rejuvenating fragrance combination of energizing citrus, a rich floral bouquet and voluptuous vanilla and amber, which is perfect for starting a summer day fresh and clean.  I love the scent so much that I actually use it as bubble bath, in addition to body wash!

Aside from switching up my skincare routine for the summer months, I make it a point to take extra special care of my skin all summer long!  I also load up on SPF (SPF40 is my minimum when I’m spending time outdoors!) and I try to always carry a water bottle to keep hydrated during the day.  Also, during the summer, I often set an earlier alarm to take advantage of the longer daylight hours!

What are your favorite summer skincare tips?  And if you give Dove Summer Care a try, I’d love to know what you think!

    Hey Katy, I was delighted to see that I am not the only crazy one who uses SPF40!
    Would love to hear your opinion on how to care about our legs and keep the skin silky smooth during the summer. We tend to neglect them during the winter, but summer is approaching fast, isn’t it?
