Keeping Skin Nourished With Dove Beauty Bars

The Dove Beauty Bar is a classic cleanser that can be found in almost every household. The product has been around for more than 60 years, but to this day Dove is still unveiling new research and improvements to set the Beauty Bar apart from your average soap.

How many times do you wash your hands in a day? Probably more than you ever even think about. Plus add on regular showers, and that's a lot of cleansing to put your skin through. I'm sure you've heard the term "squeaky clean" -- that feeling where your skin is so clean that it's almost literally squeaky when you touch it.

While it may seem like being squeaky clean is the ideal, it's actually not great for your skin. Dove has unveiled new research that showed 85% of dermatologists reported that their patients were surprised to hear that the squeaky clean feeling means that your skin might be stripped of essential hydrating nutrients. 92% of dermatologists reported that ordinary soap can overly strip the skin, so if you're doing this multiple times a day that can lead to some irritated and painful skin!

I have pretty sensitive skin, especially in the winter, and I'm always looking for cleansers that don't overly dry my already chapped hands. The Dove Beauty Bars are different than ordinary soap because they replenish nutrients that are lost while washing. They contain natural skin lipids that deposit onto the skin, as well as 1/4 of their composition being made up of moisturizing cream.A mild cleanser, sodium lauroyl isethionate, cleanses the skin.

Dove Beauty Bars are the #1 dermatologist recommended bar. It cleans your skin without stripping away essential moisture and nutrients. I received three bars to try and I can say that they really do leave my hands feeling much less stripped than other soaps I've tried.

The White Bar is probably the one that most people are familiar with. It has a light floral scent and is embossed with the Dove logo, as are all of the varieties. I also like that it has an ergonomic bend to it, making it easier to hold onto and move around in your hands or across your body to create a lather.

The Beauty Bar is also available in Pink and Sensitive Skin (unscented). While all of them were gentle, the Sensitive Skin is obviously the best option if you're like me and are prone to overly dry or sensitive skin.

After I washed my hands with these soaps I definitely felt a difference. Usually after washing I immediately put on hand lotion to avoid that dry, itchy after wash feeling. I purposely didn't use any lotion after washing with these bars so I could judge how they really made my skin feel. While my skin didn't feel as soft as it would have if I had added more lotion, I can definitely say that I felt the effects of the lipids and moisturizers in the bar! My skin wasn't immediately overly flaky and cracked.

Bottom Line: Dove Beauty Bars are a very affordable way to treat yourself to a small luxury. Instead of stripping your skin of essential moisture and oils that it needs, use these bars to efficiently clean your skin without leaving it feeling "squeaky clean!"
