How to build a skin care routine
If we know one thing, it’s that no skin care routine is universal. We’re all so different after all, it’s impossible to say that what works for one of us will work for another. But the foundations you build them on are the same for us all: advanced care, and all of the indulgence and enjoyment you can possibly cram into each step. So, with that in mind, here’s our guide to building an effective, indulgent daily skin care routine for your whole body that you’ll look forward to doing every day.
Tailor your products.
How you cleanse sets your skin up for the rest of the routine, so tailor it to you. If you have sensitive skin, you might want to avoid hot water, or if you have dry skin you might want to use a cleanser that’s super-moisturising
Exfoliating is great for helping rid the skin of dead cells and other dirt and debris (plus, it’s great for getting your circulation going, too). How much of this you do is down to your skin type: you might prefer a gentle daily exfoliation, or a full-on dry body brushing session once a week
Moisturiser is your skin’s secret weapon.
It’s what your entire routine should be built around. Appreciate that moment of peace by making your everyday moisturiser something really special. Dove Body Love Essential Care Body Lotion is perfect for every day, but the care it delivers is special. Locking in moisture for up to 48 hours, this rich body milk nourishes deeply* for radiant, soft skin that lasts.

Try new products.
Sometimes your skin needs more than nourishment, so get the best out of your routine by thinking about what you want from your skin and using products that will help you deliver it. Maybe you want your skin to feel replenished, soft and supple? Try our Body Love Restoring Care Body Lotion, which is perfect for indulging and restoring your skin.
Make sure you pay every bit of your body some attention…
…like your hands. We know hand cream might not jump to mind when talking about a skin care routine, but it’s important to give them daily care, too. Try our Body Love Restoring Care Hand Cream to relieve dryness and leave your hands feeling beautifully soft.
