I am not a girl that gets up every day and curls my hair and puts on my makeup. I am definitely a yoga pants around the house kind of girl. I always have been. I may have even worn pajamas to class one day in college. Or two days. But after my son was born I wanted to make sure that I didn't go to extremes, so I promised myself that I would at least take a shower every day. Moms of newborns know that sometimes that is asking a lot. But on some days, the shower is all that kept me sane. The few minutes alone in the shower gave me the feeling of a fresh start, even if it was 9 o'clock at night.
When Dove asked me to give Dove Nutrium Moisture Body Wash a try and wanted to know how I nourish my body and soul on a daily basis, that was the first story I thought of. Three kids and 10 years later I can count on one hand the number of days I haven't taken a shower. I even took a shower in Park City, UT when the water heater in our vacation house went out and it was freezing cold. Still took a shower. It is sort of my sanity saver. Maybe not that Park City shower, but the rest of them. What isn't to love? Time alone, the sound of water blocking out the other noises, steam, and good smelling soap.
But all the time I spend in the shower doesn't help my dry skin. What does help is the proven effective nourishment in Dove Nutrium Moisture Body Wash. It honestly feels like putting on lotion in the shower, but it still gets all bubbly and sudsy. Best of both worlds. I love the nice clean smell. And it is nice not to feel like you have to load on the lotion as soon as you step out of the tub. So I can take a long shower and use the time to destress, nourishment for my mind and spirit, and it happens to nourish my skin too. Win, win, win! Now if it would only clean the shower too...
