Holiday Adventures with Dove

This holiday season was full of food, family and lots of love. Whether we traveled to visit family, took an end-of-year road trip or simply ventured out to discover a new place within our hometown, the holiday season is a busy time for all of us. So staying fresh and dry is a must during this time.

Deodorant is a key part of every woman’s daily beauty routine, which is why it is so important to use one you can trust to keep feeling fresh and confident as you go about exploring your passions and interests. With Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant, you can just #ShakeSprayGo and have the assurance of 48-hour protection that goes on instantly dry and cares for skin with Dove ¼ moisturizers. Our Latina influencers shared their holiday routines to #ShakeSprayGo!

Lynnette Joselly

"With all the running around from hosting parties to attending them, I would like to thank Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant for taking care of me and not letting me be that girl with the funky body odor at these holiday parties! The Dry Spray provides 48 hours of odor and wetness protection with all the care of Dove. "

Kyrzayda

"It’s very important for me to make time within my daily routine to nurture my mind and body. One product I make sure to use everyday is DOVE Dry Spray Antiperspirant. It keeps me fresh and protected for up to 48 hours."

Little Mixico

"Thank God I made it in time to catch my flight for Mexico City. I arrived at 11:15am in Mexico… so basically I was running around for about 26 hours. Throughout this whole flight I used my Dove Spray and seriously guys.. it worked. I arrived to Mexico and my family didn’t even know I had done that whole excursion. I seriously felt so fresh the whole time even though I was running around like a maniac."

The Fashion Muse

"After, we are taking a road trip down to the city of Atlanta where we will spend the rest of the vacation and welcome in the new year! As for the road trip essentials (and any traveling essential overall) I never fail to pack in my Dove Dry Spray. The Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant goes on instantly dry and provides 48 hours of odor and wetness protection with all the care of Dove."

Shake, Spray and Discover with DOVE

Recently #LatinaBloggers spent the day with DOVE discovering the arts in the beautiful city of LA with host Yarel Ramos. We kicked off the morning exploring the 20th century Latin American galleries at the Los Angeles Count Museum of Art, which is quite extensive. The best part about it? Marveling at Diego and Frida's work as amigas. 

After perusing our favorite works of art, we headed over to La Guelagetza to test out tamale making skills. With the  help of owners Paola and Bricia, I'd say we did pretty well. They also served a few dishes featuring their favorite mole sauce.  Can you say decadent? 

Thank you to Dove for hosting such a fun event. Deodorant is a key part of every woman’s daily beauty routine, which is why it's so important to use one you can trust to keep feeling fresh and confident as you go about exploring your passions and interests.

With Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant, you can just #ShakeSprayGo and have the assurance of 48-hour protection that goes on instantly dry and cares for skin with Dove ¼ moisturizers. One less thing to worry about!

#LoveYourHair with Dove

It's no secret that Latinas have beautiful hair. We have an array of colors, textures and lengths and Dove wants to create a world where hair is a source of confidence, not anxiety. Through research they have found that there is a narrow depiction of what “beautiful hair” is traditionally thought to look like, which is why they want to encourage all women to love their hair whether is straight or curly, purple or black. By showcasing all hair types, textures, styles & colors we can change these standards and empower more women to love their hair. Three of our beautiful Latina bloggers were invited to try Dove products and share with us why they love their hair.

 

Cindy Limon

"Aprendí a querer mi cabello sobre todas las cosas. a sentirme segura de cualquier color que lo tenga, por que todo depende de la actitud que mostremos, seamos felices que la vida es hermosa. Ama tu cabello, cuídalo y se feliz."

Beauty By Nena

"Aunque me imagino que para muchas es difícil de imaginarse el sufrimiento y la ansiedad que pase dolo por causa de mi cabello, se que al mismo tiempo hay muchas que se ven reflejadas en mi historia y están pensando 'si así me siento yo!'... Fue entonces que empece a sentirme con mucha confianza de soltarme el cabello"

Daily Curlz

"It took me a long time to get along with and fall in love with my hair. Now every special event is the appropriate moment to show the world that my hair is beautiful and it is better than yours."

"My hair story is short from boring....I've been blonde, brunette, red, & even had pink streaks at one point (yes, I've had my tacky stages too). I've never been scared to take risks with my hair and those who know me would definitely be a witness to that! Some days I wake up and I want long luscious hair, meanwhile on some other days I just want to sport the chic bob (I'm so erratic when it comes to my hair!)"

Orgullosa to be Latina!

Hispanic Heritage Month set the stage for Latinas all over the country to celebrate being Latino Proud!  In 2011, Orgullosa started their platform with a mission to carry out the true definition of  what it means to be proud. Their goal is to connect, share and inspire Latinas through the transformative power of community. 

Orgullosa recently launched a video series featuring four inspiring bicultural Latinas: Dascha Polanco (actress, OITNB), Jeanette Kaplun (founder, Hispana Global), Laura Gomez (tech entrepreneur) and Maria Teresa Kumar (President & CEO, Voto Latino). With this video series, Orgullosa showcased the diversity of Hispanic experiences and celebrated Latinas who are PROUD: proud of their culture, traditions, beauty, family, and home.  A few of our proud #LatinaBloggers share their stories about what things #InspireOrgullo for them.

"Probably because of that story, and because I always see her sewing and embroidering things, fabric had a special meaning for me. My mother learned from her mom, and she taught me and my sister how to sew. We are those kind of girls that can’t live with just one pair of pillows for more than 3 months, we need to make new ones all the time, just like my abuelita."

Orgullosa to be Latina! - #InspireOrgullo

Laura Neuzeth

"My minimal and practical approach to beauty has really resonated with many Latinas because for maybe once in their life they're learning to embrace and play up their natural features. I always want to encourage women to learn how to love themselves, and hopefully that's something that comes across in my work."

The event highlighted how we as Latinas are defining a new blended cultural life that is unique.

Keep your eyes healthy in style

Some people say that "los ojos son el reflejo del alma" (the eyes are the window to your soul), but sometimes we don't give our eyes the care they need. Sometimes it's because we neglect to get our eyes checked every year and other times it's because we don't think eye glasses can be stylish.
