How to choose your best glowing skin routine
Skin of every tone, type and age looks and feels even more beautiful with a natural glow – and there are so many easy ways to create one. Here’s our guide to creating your best glowing skin routine.
Choose sunshine in a bottle
One way to bring a true outdoorsy glow to skin is with a tan. DermaSpa Summer Revived Self-Tanning Body Lotion won’t dry skin out; instead it intensely hydrates while developing a beautiful and flattering natural-looking colour. Whatever your skin tone, it will bring a richer, deeper hue to your skin – and of course, give you that gorgeous ‘holiday’ feeling, too.
Before applying self tan, it’s a good idea to prep your skin to create the smoothest canvas possible. Dove Exfoliating Body Scrub is a beautifully nourishing scrub that will leave skin silky-smooth and self-tan ready. Massage your self-tanner into clean, dry skin, paying attention to your knees, elbows and heels, then wash your hands and watch the colour develop. Spending time in the sun? Don’t forget the sunscreen.
Go gradual for glowing skin
Want an ultra-subtle way to glow and intensify your skin tone at the same time? Build up to your desired shade slowly. Our DermaSpa Summer Revived Gradual Self-Tan Body Mousse is so easy: it’s non-greasy, moisturises for up to 48 hours, and builds up a beautiful healthy glow. Massage onto clean, dry skin in circular motions every day or every other day, depending on the depth of tan you’re after.
Create a natural skin glow
Body glow doesn’t just have to mean a tan. In fact, a healthy glow can be more to do with how your skin reflects light: try new Dove Skin Glow Oil-in-Milk Body Lotion. This clever hybrid delivers 48-hour long-lasting deep* hydration plus a subtle 12-hour body glow thanks to its subtle soft-focus light-reflecting minerals that suit all skin tones.

Get that post-holiday, full-body glow
Looking to recreate your best beach-holiday glow? Massage Skin Glow Oil-in-Milk Body Lotion onto dry self-tanned skin, so that the soft-focus minerals can veil your body in a radiant glow and really illuminate your skin tone with a gorgeous gleam. Use every time you use your gradual tanner, or in-between self-tan applications to really revive your radiance.
Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise
The key to prolonging every kind of glow, whether you have chosen to tan or not, is to keep your skin super moisturised at all times. Keeping the outer layer of your skin well-hydrated with a daily application (twice daily, if you can) of Skin Glow Oil-in-Milk Body Lotion will not only maintain your glow but – thanks to its glycerin-rich formula – it will also ensure 48 hours of hydration.
