Thrifty Guide to Smooth Silky Skin

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.

We made it to spring successfully but if you're like me, the skin could probably use a little TLC. The cold air has been very drying. It's time to devote attention to the skin now that the heavy coat is put away and there's more skin on display. Dry, scaly skin is not cute.

Softer, smoother skin is something every woman desires however 1 in 3 women suffer from dry skin and 98% of women feel more confident when their skin is moisturized vs. dry. Beautiful glowing skin can be achieved and it doesn't have to cost a lot or take up a ton of time.

Step 1: Exfoliate

You'll need to shed those dry skin cells first. Exfoliating speeds up cell renewal creating more healthy looking skin. This can be done with a loofah or a body brush. Wet your skin then apply a generous dollop of Dove Dry Oil Moisture Body Wash to the brush or lather up with Dove Dry Oil Beauty Bar then brush skin.

Step 2: Cleanse

Use a cleanser that will nourish the skin. The New Dove Dry Oil Collection has been wonderful for my skin. The mild formula cleanser maintains and nourishes skin's protective layer during cleansing and replenishes 12x more skin natural nutrients than competitors. Dove Dry Oil Beauty Bar contains ¼ moisturizing cream and Moroccan argan oil that will leave skin soft, smooth and radiant.

Step 3: Moisturize

Fresh out of the shower, I apply homemade body butter to damp skin. I use a blend of shea and cocoa butters along with a blend of oils. Just like Dove, I'm a big fan of argan oil and add a teaspoon to my body butter mix. It keeps the moisture in and feels so great on the skin.

Smooth silky skin is easy to achieve.  It can be done everyday without a huge time commitment and it won't cost a lot of money either. Super bonus perk: You can free up time and money for a little thrift store shopping. 

How do you care for your skin?
