How to get the most out of your skin care products

Skin care doesn't always go to plan – you can guarantee an unexpected breakout before a big day – but with the right products and a little know-how, you can have the smooth, soft, beautiful skin you're after.

    Apply products at night.

    Make moisturizing an important step in your routine. Applying skin care products before bed is also a must, as it gives your skin chance to really soak it up. The warming fragrance of Dove Cream Oil Shea Butter Body Lotion is perfect for winding down before bed

    Get to know your skin type.

    Whether you have dry skin, oily skin, or need a moisturizer with anti-ageing benefits, determining our skin type is the easiest way to nail effective skin care. Nourish dry skin with Dove Cream Oil Intensive Body Lotion

    Choose a gentle cleanser.

    You can over wash. Yep, it’s true. Cleaning your skin too much can actually dry it out, so choose a daily cleanser that’s gentle on skin

    Avoid harsh scubs.

    Resist the urge to use a harsh scrub during a spell of dry skin. It can be tempting to rub it into submission but use gentler body care products instead: it's far more effective in the long run

    Don't forget those hard-to-reach places.

    Think of your skin care routine as a body care routine: it should be a top-to-toe experience. (Which means more body lotion all round)

    Consider your diet.

    Natural skin care starts from within: eat delicious foods with antioxidants to help protect your skin, as well as massively improving your mood
