The ultimate body care routine for silky, smooth skin

Written by Tashika TyagiNov 02, 2021

You follow a regular CTM routine, religiously apply foot and hand cream to nourish your skin, but what about the rest of your skin? Most often than not, we think simply washing and moisturising our body everyday does the job. Newsflash - it does not!

Like your facial skin, the skin on your body too requires a dedicated body care routine to remain smooth, silky and happy (read: problem-free). Don’t know where to start? We’ve got you covered. Ahead, we’ve mapped out the ultimate body care routine for your skin.

Step #1: Dry brush to exfoliate

Dead skin cells accumulate on the skin, making it look dull and lacklustre.. Dry brushing helps get rid of dead skin cells, cleans pores, exfoliates, reduces cellulite, thus giving you softer, smoother skin. New to dry brushing? Here’s a step-by-step guide that will help you dry brush like a pro. Do it at least twice a week before taking a shower and your skin will thank you for it!

Step #2: Revitalise your skin by cleansing it

Cleansing your skin to remove all the dirt and grime is the next step in this routine. Grab the Dove Shower Mousse with Coconut Oil and lather it all over your body. This creamy and indulgent shower mousse comes enriched with the goodness of coconut oil that hydrates and cleanses your skin. It also restores skin's natural moisture barrier to make it softer and smoother.

Step #3: Don’t forget to scrub your skin

Just like your face, your body needs to be scrubbed too. This helps remove dead skin cells and revive your dull skin. So, scrub your body with the Dove Exfoliating Body Polish Scrub with Pomegranate Seeds and Shea Butter at least twice a week. Enriched with pomegranate seeds and shea butter, this body scrub gives you a spa-like experience at home by exfoliating your skin gently to reveal silky, nourished and smooth skin underneath.

Step #4: Slather body lotion to moisturise your skin

After you’re done cleansing and exfoliating, it’s time to hydrate your skin with a nourishing moisturiser like the Love Beauty & Planet Natural Coconut Water Hydrating Body Lotion. Made with the goodness of natural coconut water and 100% organic coconut oil, this clean body lotion provides all day hydration to your skin. It is non-sticky and lends a refreshing scent to your skin thanks to the ethically sourced Moroccan Mimosa flower extract in it.. Just slather it on slightly damp skin and massage till absorbed.

Step #5: Take care of your hands

Wait, we aren’t done yet. While you’re at it, make sure you take care of your hands too by treating it with a nice hand cream like the Vaseline Anti-Bacterial Hand Cream. With moisturising glycerin, vitamin E and anti-bacterial ingredients in its formula, this hand cream moisturises your hands and also protects it against bacterias and germs. We love.
