I don’t know about you, but winter does a number on my skin. Without mentioning how pale my skin is since it hasn’t seen the light of day in six months, it’s super dry all winter and in need of some serious love. Now that spring is here and we’re coming up on summer, it’s time for damage control, and getting my skin ready for summer. Today 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 and to share a few other tips for getting your skin ready for summer.

Obviously the benefits of drinking water go far beyond your skin, but you’d be surprised how much your skin will reward you for staying hydrated. One of my personal goals for this year was to drink lots more water, and I’ve definitely noticed a difference in my skin. Start keeping a glass or bottle of water with you at all times, and I’m sure you’ll notice your skin feels and looks better.
I can’t be the only one who’s skin needs a refresh after winter. Exfoliating is great for getting rid of that dry winter skin. It’s also essential in the summer, when you’ll likely (hopefully) be regularly be putting sunscreen and other products on your skin that can build up.
This isn’t just for summer, because you should be using SPF year round. But it’s especially important during the summer. You’re probably trading in your pants for skirts and shorts, and trading the sweaters in for tank tops. Your skin is way more exposed to the sun and even if you’re just going out for a short while, you’ll want to be wearing sunscreen.
If you’re worried about getting your summer glow, go with a sunless tanning product. Same great glow, without the health risks.
Moisturize and Nourish
By spring, my skin is screaming for moisture. Winter is not friendly to my skin, and some serious damage control is necessary before summer. And I know I’m not alone! Studies show that, while soft, smooth skin is something every woman wants and that 98% of us feel more confident with moisturized skin, 1 in 3 women suffer from dry skin. My favorite way to combat this is with moisturizing shower products. That’s why I’ve been using the new Dove Dry Oil collection to help nourish my skin and keep away the dryness. I love the soft feeling it leaves my skin with, thanks to the formula infused with Moroccan Argan oil beads.
The Dove Dry Oil Moisture Body Wash replaces so many nutrients that are vital for having glowing, moisturized skin, and the Dove Dry Oil Beauty Bar has a 1/4 moisturizing cream for soft, smooth, radiant skin. Sounds good to me!
