I recently to went the Dove Body Confidence Workshops at RADA which was not only very interesting but also a really useful experience.
Dove Deep Care Complex Range
Dove have been exploring the relationship between how you feel and how you look, and have found that everyone feels better when their skin is deeply nourished. Which is why Dove has introduced the new nourishing hand and body lotion range with Deep Care Complex.
To celebrate the launch Dove has joined forces with the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) enterprises to teach women how to best exude body confidence and ensure we look our best every day. Now, I couldn’t stay for the whole day but I went to a wonderful session that focussed on ‘the Mind’.
It was led by a fabulous actress who lead a group discussion about women we admire and what it was that had made them so successful and attractive. And what we pretty much decided on was very simple… it was confidence.
It was a really fun session which included having to dance around like a crazy person in front of total strangers. I have to confess that at first, this was more what could be described as embarrassing rather than fun, but as the cringe factor started to fade, I began to realise that it really is just my own insecurities that hold me back and stop me doing the things I need to do to be successful.
It goes without saying that this would be just one step to freeing ourselves from the shackles of self-consciousness, but it was actually quite a powerful lesson.
I took away some inspirational notes from the session. These are my favourites:
Be present: ‘the past is history, the future’s a mystery, today is a gift that’s why they call it the present’
Smile – it relaxes you and your ‘audience’
Don’t forget to breathe – it’s the foundation of all good speech.
I am going to try to remember these things in everything I do.
And as for the new Dove Lotions with Deep care Complex, well they are fab. If you read ReallyRee regularly, you will know that I can’t last longer than a minute after showering without having to slap on the moisturiser. These are soothing and light and my skins stays feeling moisturised for a really long time. The need to moisturise after the shower isn’t quite as urgent as it was before!
“Deep Care Complex is a special blend of skin-natural nutrients with rich essential oil, designed to provide the deep down nourishment skin needs to stay beautifully soft and smooth for 24 hours. This supreme care technology has been included in all Dove body lotion and hand creams for 2011.”
The whole hand and body range has new packaging and now includes ‘Deep Care Complex’ technology and is available at all major supermarkets and chemists including Boots and Superdrug.
