As a woman, you know how to prepare for life’s unexpected moments. You always remember to pack floss, mints and extra Band-Aids; in order to avoid an embarrassing smile, coffee breath and the occasional painful blister. But what about the moments that you plan for well in advance, those special moments that you want to be perfect? Sometimes, the moments that mean the most can also be the most nerve-wracking.
In a 2012 survey, Dove asked real women like you, “When do you need a confidence boost?” The top three answers were:
#3 A Hot Date: If you play with your hair, bite your nails and tap your feet before date night, you can relate to the 44% of women who said going on a date or going out with friends puts them on edge.
#2 Public Speaking: If clammy palms and uncontrollable dry mouth are all tell-tale signs that you have a presentation at work today, then you are in the same boat as 52% of women who marked off public speaking as the number one reason they need some extra confidence.
And the number one instance that women said rattles their nerves was:
#1 A Special Occasion: With, 57% of the votes, family reunions, weddings, baby showers and birthday parties took the top spot.
The more important the event, the more likely you are to be nervous, anxious and excited – and all those emotions can sometimes take a toll on your confidence. The best way to pre-plan for these often intimidating situations is to opt for the only clinical strength deodorant on the market with Dove ¼ moisturizers™ and Vitamins E & F: Dove Clinical Deodorant. Dove Clinical Deodorant is a dermatologist recommended formula, which is less irritating than the leading prescription-strength anti-perspirant/deodorant. Unlike other clinical strength deodorants, Dove does not contain aluminum chloride or alcohols which can cause skin irritation and discomfort. Dove Clinical Deodorant offers prescription strength wetness protection with the maximum level of active ingredient available without a prescription and provides powerful 24-hour odor and wetness protection, making sure you feel confident all day long.
If that’s not enough, Dove Clinical Protection is available in the following fun fragrances: Original Clean: a light, clean scent; Soothing Chamomile: a citrus scent with notes of orange blossom, chamomile and delicate lily of the valley; Rebalance: a plum and sakura blossom scent; Revive: a pomegranate and lemon verbena scent; Cool Essentials: a cucumber and green tea scent and Clear Tone Skin Renew: formulated with calendula and sunflower seed extracts to help restore skin to its natural tone.
