    Moisturize your skin in the shower

    We believe moisturized skin begins in the shower. The first step in practicing good skin habits is to cater your routine to your skin’s needs. With seasonal skin changes, there’s a lot to consider, so really take the time to notice any changes in appearance or texture. Stick to skin cleansers with nourishing ingredients that you know work for your skin in the shower. Dove Body Washes have a unique moisturizing formula that contains skin-natural nourishers and plant-based moisturizers to leave your skin soft and moisturized in just one shower.

    Apply moisturizer immediately after washing or cleansing

    Wondering what to do with dry skin? That’s where moisturizer comes in. One of our best tips for dehydrated skin is to apply your favorite moisturizer after washing your face or body. That’s because freshly cleansed skin is more likely to absorb the oh-so-nourishing formulas.

    Use warm water and limit your shower time

    Wondering how to avoid dry skin? Here’s a great dry skin tip: when cleansing with our body washes, use warm, not scalding water and limit your bath time – hot showers and long baths remove moisture from the skin which can result in dryness. Want to make sure your shorter showers are just as good? Discover our fruity Rejuvenating Pomegranate or Glowing Mango Body Washes – they’ll transport you to a tropical oasis in just one shower.
