While many things have changed about me over the years, one thing has remained annoyingly persistent: my very dry, sensitive skin. No matter the environment or season, I am constantly fighting a battle to keep my skin feeling moisturized, hydrated, and soft. The winter months are usually the worst of the year, but the summer months can be just as challenging. I have high-intensity workouts at least five times each week, meaning staying hydrated becomes a bit of an issue: I am constantly attached to my water bottle, not only to ensure I am hydrated before and after working out, but also to keep my hydration levels high enough to help ease the dryness of my skin.
Over the years I have tried most soaps on the market: bar, oils, natural, organic, cheap, budget-friendly, expensive - you name it, it has appeared in my shower. I have very rarely stayed with one product; those which I did were usually just the best I had found to that point, but never good enough to stick with more than twice. The first time I stepped into my shower and lathered up with Dove Visible Care Softening Creme Body Wash, I could already feel the difference in my skin. As I huddled under the softness of my towel after my shower, I noticed one unusual, albeit welcome, difference - my skin was not screaming in pain for lotion.
Over the next week, I happily observed my skin transition to a point where it is hydrated throughout the day - from an over-air conditioned office, to the sweltering city streets, to a humid, non-air conditioned gym, my skin held up through every daily environmental change. At the end of a long work day and tough work-out, I couldn’t wait to hop in the shower and enjoy a few moments to relax with the stress-relieving scent of Dove Visible Care Softening Creme Body Wash. Now, instead of jumping from the shower to the lotion dispenser as quickly as possible to avoid the inevitable tightness and pulling of my skin, I have a few more minutes to relax and enjoy washing the stressors of the way down the drain.
