Keep up with your own beauty traditions with help from Dove and CVS #BeautyStory
I don’t wear makeup very often but that does not mean I am not concerned with beauty and healthy skin. My family all uses Dove products – I tend to use a beauty bar while my husband and sons use the means body wash – they love the scents and just how thoroughly clean they feel afterwards.
Do I have any beauty secrets? I tend to wash with my Dove Beauty Bar but I do not use any soap on my face. I already have dry and sensitive skin. The last thing I need to do is use some sort of soap based product to dry my face out further. My mother taught me to always keep my face clean and moisturized! I achieve this with Dove’s Ultra Caring Gentle Cream Face Cleanser. It is a non foaming face cleanser that helps with my dry skin. Then I follow up with a moisturizer from the same line. If and when I wear makeup I always use a primer and a mineral based makeup.
I totally remember the days when my grandmother would spend forever on her skin. To me at the time I couldn’t see past just how much time she was spending. But now I realize it was simply her taking pride in her skin and appearance. It made her feel good and built her confidence. Good lessons to learn and have in life.
I am 48 years old but I think my skin still looks pretty good (in my humble opinion). I can honestly say that my skin does survive some abuse too. We are constantly at the ocean with sun, sand, wind and in pools with high doses of chlorine.
Check out this family’s beauty story from Dove’s latest campaign . This video features four generations of women and a tradition of passing down one simple beauty secret: the Dove Beauty Bar. I was really moved when one daughter said, “My mom was the one who started this all off, and she passed it along to me and my sister. Then we passed it along to our daughters. So I guess it’s kind of like a family secret.” What a sweet tradition.

I try to raise my children, particularly my daughters that beauty cannot be defined by TV and models. It is about real people and who they are, the values they have and the characters they become. Life is stressful enough, especially for young girls and to get caught up in trying to meet someone’s definition of beauty is just not important.
I believe rest is so important to beauty and it took 48 years but not having chewed nails is such a confidence builder. I have been chewing my nails since I was five years old. I remember the exact moment I started, why I started and every attempt to stop. But this year – that was it. I now love having pretty nails and the ability to paint them whatever I want. I don’t let them get too long – though I have – because then I find it impairs my ability to function. But I am no longer embarrassed about my hands or afraid to have them show in photos. What a huge difference.
My children also have special needs and their medications often make it difficult to fight pimples and blemishes. But with assistance and positive assurances they work hard at being the best they can be.
