When I heard all the buzz about the Suave "Shower Yourself Beautiful" campaign with Holly Robinson Peete, I was excited to learn more. A simple direct message (DM) from mominthecity and comefollowme on Twitter gave me the chance to participate in this great campaign. MomSelect was searching for Women of Color (#WOC) for this particular campaign, so this was an added bonus for me.
See what Holly Robinson Peete offers as tips to Shower Yourself Beautiful:
SLIP INTO A DELICIOUS FRAGRANCE. Wear an alluring fragrance that makes you feel beautiful. Skip perfume, which can feel heavy on skin in the summer, and try new Suave® Naturals Wild Cherry Blossom Indulgent Body Wash. Infused with cherry blossom extracts and Vitamin E, this body wash leaves skin pampered and moisturized, with a delicious fragrance.
BOOK AN APPOINTMENT WITH YOURSELF. Shower yourself beautiful by hosting an at-home spa day. Invite girlfriends over for manicures and pedicures and paint fingers and toes summer-inspired shades of sorbet. Once nails are dry, generously apply a moisturizing body lotion to keep hands and feet soft and smooth all summer long.
SCHEDULE A "TEA" TIME. Studies show that taking even a two minute break from your hectic schedule can reduce stress levels. Try this trick to a
ddsome relaxation to your daily grind. Instead of rushing through lunch, schedule a leisurely tea time for yourself complete with mini tea sandwiches and a cup of chamomile tea. Then get settled in a quiet part of your home or office -- free of distractions -- to start your summer reading list.
LOVE, ME. Send yourself some flowers -- especially if you already need to swing by the florist to pick up flowers for a wedding or baby shower. Seasonal summer flowers, such as lavender and sweet pea, are a budget-friendly way to pamper yourself and brighten up your home.
SHOWER YOURSELF BEAUTIFUL EVERY DAY. Trade in your daily shower for a relaxing bath that’s fit for a queen! Transform your bathroom into a private sanctuary by lighting an aromatherapy-inspired candle and playing your favorite tunes. Be sure to use Suave® Naturals Lavender Vanilla Calming Body
The soothing scent of lavender will calm your senses and transport your mind to a tranquil oasis. Looking for more ways to shower yourself beautiful?
