Top 3 Moisturising Skin Routines for Beautiful Skin

The many aspects of a good skincare routine should all work together to help restore the skin’s natural, glowing, and moisturised look. But we’re exposed to so much in a day – outside influences like the sun, harsh wind, and pollution can sometimes strip the radiance and vibrance from our skin. The result is often dryness, and a significantly increased ‘tight’ feeling in the skin.

One of the most important parts to a great skin care routine, then, is moisturising.

Top Moisturising Skin Care Routines Explained



Moisturising works to add hydration back into tired dry skin and restore the skin’s natural glow and softness. It does this by forming a barrier on the outer layers of the skin, to prevent water loss. But moisturisers also perform somewhat of a scientific function – they’re formulated to complement the natural oils found in the skin and reinforce the natural cellular building blocks like ceramides.

Use any of Dove’s specially formulated moisturisers - deeply* nourishing lotions that will help repair your skin’s barrier to keep moisture locked in.

Give your daily moisturising routine an upgrade with these two other methods that you can try, to help you achieve moisturised skin that has a glow.


Use a Caring Cleanser

The moisturising goodness of a nourishing lotion isn't the only way to restore the moisture in your skin. Get a head start on hydrating your skin by adding a moisturising cleanser to your daily wash.

A lot of soaps can strip away the moisture from your skin, and these effects can be amplified when you add hot water to your cleansing regime. Instead of using a soap that will dry your skin out, try the gentle cleansing goodness of Dove's Beauty Cream Bar - formulated with 1/4 moisturising cream to help your skin retain its natural moisture.

Dove Beauty Cream Bar will help to replenish the moisture that is lost during cleansing and restore the skin for softer, smoother, healthier-looking skin.


Try a Targeted Approach

Your skin works hard to keep the moisture locked in, especially with elements like the sun, wind and excessive washing working to strip the moisture away. When it comes to hydrating your skin, reach for a product that is specially formulated to address dry skin and leave it feeling full of moisture.

If your skin is particularly dry during a certain season or time, give the Dove Body Love Intense Care Body Lotion for Very Dry Skin a try - formulated with a special Ceramide Restoring Serum that will replenish your dry skin for nourished and healthier looking skin. For a pampering experience, try the Dove Body Love Pampering Care Body Lotion for Dry Skin. A rich formula of nourishing shea butter infused with warm vanilla to instantly hydrate your skin.

Moisturising is simply a vital part to an effective skin care regime. Your skin already works tirelessly to retain moisture, so give it a helping hand and do as much as you can to help equip your skin with moisture-retaining abilities. Making moisturising a habit can ensure your skin stays radiant.
