  • Exfoliate.

    Soft, smooth skin is built on good foundations, which means exfoliating! A scrub or an exfoliating mitt will help you buff away all the debris and dead skin cells, to help you ward off rough patches and keep your body glowing and radiant

  • Moisturise.

    The ultimate path to smooth skin? Moisturising. For beautifully hydrated skin you need a deeply nourishing moisturiser, like Dove Body Love Intense Care Body Lotion. The extra-rich formula provides deep* nourishment for very dry skin, locking moisture into the surface of skin for up to 48 hours to leave it smooth, replenished and beautifully restored.

    All too often we don’t moisturise our hands till it’s too late, so make hand cream a part of your daily routine. Leave our Body Love Essential Care Hand Cream by your bed and work it in every night before you go to sleep – it’ll leave your skin velvety smooth

    There’s nothing like a hot shower to help take the day off, but it’s not so good for your skin. High temperatures can melt away your skin’s protective lipid layer, which helps your skin retain water and stay soft and smooth, so stick to warm water in your shower and you might notice a difference…

    Tailoring your products to the season will help prevent the weather from having too much of an effect on your skin. When harsh weather hits, switch your body lotion to an intensive, rich moisturiser like our Body Love Essential Care Body Lotion, which will keep away dry, rough skin caused by the cold weather and lack of humidity in the air
