I'm sure you've seen the commercial on TV, where Dove puts several ladies to a 7 Day Challenge. No mirrors and only a bar of soap to wash their face. The point? To show that you can really get healthy looking skin with just some good ole fashion soap and water.
So for the next week I decided to mix in a few other products to really get my face nice and clean, but making sure the base of it was using Dove beauty bar soap.
- I used a make-up remover wipe. I did this to ensure I got a good chunk of the make-up off and my mascara didn't run when I washed my face. I usually prefer these wipes.
- Next I washed my face with warm water + Dove Sensitive Skin beauty bar soap. Really scrubbing, making sure to remove all excess make-up and dirt. If you have sensitive skin, try this bar.
- Finally, I used a moisturizer to help make my skin even softer. I also put a heavier coat around my eyes, because I feel those get hit the hardest during the harsh winter winds. Another great thing about Dove is that it already includes 1/4 moisturizing cream. So anything else you use is just an added bonus.
The results? I realized that over the years I really haven't been protecting my skin or taking good care of it. I mean in just one week I noticed a drastic difference. I can proudly say in the past two weeks I haven't had a single breakout and my skin is really feeling softer, and healthier. I accredit that to using Dove and finally taking better care of my skin. This was definitely something I wanted to work on during the new year.
