How to bag the best moisturizer

After a relaxing bath, there’s nothing quite like the silky soft feeling of our favourite moisturizer 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 moisturizers for your skin. 

  • 1

    Keep it simple.

    Just like facial moisturizer, 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

  • 2

    Know your skin.

    Knowing what you want out of your skin care couldn’t be more important when finding the best moisturizer. Whether you’re after deep nourishment, or a pampering scent, it’s the key to providing the right kind of care for your body

    Apply before bed.

    When choosing the best moisturizer for dry skin, opt for an oil-based formula or one with shea butter. Apply Dove Cream Oil Intensive Body Lotion before bed so that they have more time to work deep below skin

    Go fragrant.

    Whether you love the creamy scent of vanilla or prefer light, floral fragrances, choose a moisturizer that smells exactly how you want to. Dove Cream Oil Shea Butter 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 moisturizer in your beauty arsenal to give those areas extra attention when they need it

    Look out for vitamins A, C and E. Experts recommend these powerful antioxidants as they protect our skin from signs of ageing
