As my pregnancy has progressed I’ve found nothing fits properly, nothing is comfortable and did you know a 7th pregnancy means you sweat way more than you ever have in your entire life? Me neither. Maybe that’s not true, it may just be that it’s now Summer and I’ve never worn clothes that show off any part of my body. I’ve always had to cover right up, but let me just say — I’ve never wanted to be more comfortable in my life than I do right now and never needed a change more than now. So, I took the plunge.
About a month ago I did something I have never done before, and never thought I’d ever do – I bought dresses. Yes, maxi dresses. Do you know how comfortable those are to a last trimester growing pregnant mama? AMAZING.
One thing I didn’t think about though was my legs. Not only do you have bare legs under the maxi dresses which can be seen when sitting, climbing stairs, or just walking around – but the ones I bought? Have slits up the sides so I have to make sure my legs are not scary every single time I wear these dresses. Wouldn’t want to scare anyone while I’m out shopping now would I?
Thankfully, Schick always has me covered. But, to give me an extra boost of confidence I’ve added Aveeno into the mix!
My New Summer Routine
For my routine I am using my trusted and all-time favourite Schick Intuition Advanced Moisture razor which moisturizes while I shave. I’ve added in AVEENO® Skin Relief Gentle ScentTM Coconut Body Wash and AVEENO® Skin Relief Gentle ScentTM Coconut Lotion.
The Schick Intuition Advanced Moisture razor with Moisture Ribbons lathers and softens skin. It boasts an ergonomically designed handle, a pivoting head and four blades surrounded by a Skin Conditioning Solid containing Shea Butter to moisturize during shaving and help achieve noticeably softer skin.
I’ve been using this razor for months now and I have never found shaving to be more easy, and quick! You don’t even need anything extra in the shower with you when using this razor which I find to be such a help when rushing in the shower!
AVEENO® Skin Relief Gentle Scent Coconut Body Wash: Aveeno Skin Relief Gentle Scent Coconut Body Wash is a lightly-scented body wash which leaves itchy, dry skin feeling soothed, revamped and moisturized.
Love the scent of Coconut? This body wash is for you. Not only does it help your skin feel revamped and moisturized the scent isn’t too over powering and isn’t off putting. It’s gentle and leaves your dry, itchy skin feel wonderful again.
Aveeno Skin Relief Gentle Scent Coconut Lotion absorbs in seconds and feels light to the touch with a non-greasy formula that replenishes and hydrates skin for 24 hours.
Keeping my legs feeling the best after my showers is something I need while wearing dresses! I find pregnancy (okay, 7!) has really done a number on my skin and my legs, take it hard! Keeping my legs feel soft, and smooth is important to me and Aveeno knows how to achieve that. The worst thing about lotions is how greasy most can be. Not Aveeno Skin Relief Gentle Scent Coconut Lotion. It absorbs in seconds leaving your skin feeling smooth, hydrated and you feeling confident to walk around feeling your best. I’ve never rocked a dress better! Literally.
So, as you can see not only am I now comfortable, and not wearing clothes that restrict or keep me sweating during these hot summer months – I’m able to wear my dresses, that I’ve never worn in 31 years I might add and be confident doing so! Nothing is worse than looking down and seeing rough, or stubbly legs! Am.I.Right?
How do you feel comfortable and confident in the summer months, have you perfected your summer routine yet? How about those legs?
