I can see summer peaking at me from around the corner. Though I’m excited about the farmers markets, berries and fresh tomatoes beginning to grow on my patio tomato plant, I know this mean humidity, sweat and bugs, too.
This year with the hot temperatures, I hope to de-mom myself a little bit. What does that mean? It means getting rid of this hair DON’T I’ve been sporting:
I’m hoping to do better at embracing my natural waves and letting my hair do it’s thang this summer. (Wavy/curly girls, please share your tips!)
I’m also looking forward to updating my wardrobe and wearing more than my typical mom uniform, which is either yoga gear or shorts and a t-shirt. Proof:
Poor, David. I used to try and doll myself up a bit more. (Side note, he actually loves me like this. I’m a lucky gal<3).
I love my big, beautiful closet, but together David and I barely fill up half of it. We’re not clothes people, though we could both totally use some sprucing up. A new dress or two would go a long way in my wardrobe.
But underneath my mom clothes and half-pulled through ponytail (hey, it was cool in 7th grade!), at least I’m clean. And I smell nice, too.
For a long time now, I’ve been a Dove product user. I buy their soap in bulk.
I use their deodorant to stay feeling fresh.
I like their message of true beauty and building self-esteem in girls.
So when they offered to send me their new deodorant to try out, it was a no-brainer. Yes, please!
Dove Clear Tone innovative technology reduces underarm irritation, bumps and darkness. Luckily, I have pretty good armpits to begin with.
Fact: I’ve actually been complimented on my armpits before and asked if I actually grow hair in them because they are so smooth. Some girls have long, pretty legs. I have nice armpits. SCORE.
So the real question to me, is can it keep me feeling fresh during my sweatiest times? Only one one to really test this… hot yoga.
Awkward, poorly-lit, self-timer pose… GO!
I finally made it back to a yoga class yesterday (Thank you Charlotte Family Yoga, it felt sooooo good) and put Dove Clear Tone to the test. And afterwards…
Still so fresh. In my armpits at least. Next time I should cover my body in it because we all know you don’t just sweat in your armpits during hot yoga.
But the Dove held up beautifully and made me feel comfortably clean enough to hit up the grocery store afterwards. And that’s saying something.
What product do you rely on to keep you feeling fresh in the summertime?
