After a relaxing bath, there’s nothing quite like the silky soft feeling of our favourite moisturiser to make our skin feel loved. But with so many things affecting it – the weather, hormones, ageing – it can seem like there’s a lot to think about. We put together our top tips on what to look for so you can find the best moisturisers for your skin.
Keep it simple.
Just like facial moisturiser, the best body moisturiser for your skin isn’t about the fanciest formulas. A simple but effective combination means you won’t clog pores with unnecessary ingredients
Know your skin.
Knowing what you want out of your skin care couldn’t be more important when finding the best moisturiser. Whether you’re after deep nourishment, a pampering scent, it’s the key to providing the right kind of care for your body
Apply before bed.
When choosing the best moisturiser for dry skin, opt for an oil-based formula or one with shea butter. Apply before bed so that they have more time to work deep below skin
Whether you love the creamy scent of vanilla or prefer light, floral fragrances, choose a body lotion that smells exactly how you want to. Dove Purely Pampering Shea Butter and Warm Vanilla Body Lotion leaves skin beautifully scented, as well as soft and smooth
Nourish dry areas.
Some parts of the body can get dry easily – feet, knees and elbows are frequent culprits. If you’re nodding in recognition, keep a deeply nourishing moisturiser like Dove Essential Nourishment Body Lotion in your beauty arsenal to give those areas extra attention when they need it
Look out for vitamins.
Look out for vitamins A, C and E. Experts recommend these powerful antioxidants as they protect our skin from signs of ageing
