Keep The Cold Out And Moisturised The Dove Way

Posted March 15, 2013 by Surita in Beauty


Keep the cold out and the moisture in with Dove


Follow the Dove Moisture Commandments and banish your skin blues today…


Your skin and the elements are never going to be the best of friends. With the recent snowy spell, constantly moving from the cold outside into cosy central heating can have a dehydrating effect… and a new Facebook poll* revealed that despite knowing the havoc cold weather can cause our skin, we just aren’t moisturising enough. With 1 in 20 admitting that they never moisturise, Dove Technical expert, Andrew Saynor, shares his latest tips to give your skin some much needed superior care…


Moisture Zappers

Many everyday factors cause our skin to lose moisture, some of these may surprise you!


Cut down on bath time: Cleansing removes moisture from the outer protective layer of your skin, so, limit those long hot showers if you can!

Relax and unwind: Stress alters the nature of the lipid layers detrimentally, so take some deep breaths and give your skin a helping hand

Wrap up warm: Skin loses water to the environment when exposed to low humidity, colder temperatures and wind, drying it out further


The Dove Moisture Commandments

Eat yourself beautiful

Your daily diet plays a key role in maintaining the health of your skin. A balanced diet that contains a wide range of minerals and vitamins is essential to keep skin functioning at its best.

Post shower application

Take a shower with tepid water, and apply a moisturising lotion immediately afterwards while your skin is still slightly d this traps water in your surface cells, and keeps skin from looking dry and patchy.


Have a Moisturising Mantra

To help prevent water loss and preserve a healthy skin moisture balance follow this easy Mantra…

Cleanse: Use a mild, non-soap based cleanser to clean and remove excess oils from the skin. It is important to minimise moisture loss during cleansing

Moisturise & Replenish: Immediately after cleansing, use Dove Body Lotion and Hand Cream to replenish lipids and hydrate the skin

Protect: Protect skin from harmful ultraviolet rays by using a broad spectrum sun block every day – even when it’s cold!
