Body Wash for Dry Skin 101

Dry skin? Our moisturizing, sulfate-free body wash will leave it feeling clean, nourished and beautifully hydrated – now you can start solving your dry skin dilemmas in the shower.

What helps dry skin?

Being gentle is the key to managing dry skin. Using anything too harsh will only aggravate, so mild, pH-balanced products are the best dry skin solutions. Locking in moisture is also important. Our Deep Moisture Body Wash nourishes your skin with a creamy formula, leaving it softer and smoother. 

What’s the best body wash for dry skin? 

The best moisturizing body wash for dry skin is one that’s ultra-nourishing and kind to your delicate microbiome (AKA its living protective layer). Our sulfate free body wash is made with skin-natural nutrients and plant-based moisturizers. This skin-loving formula is blended with naturally derived gentle cleansers, making it kind to your microbiome. 

Should you exfoliate dry skin? 

Nothing feels better than smooth, soft skin and regular exfoliation can help restore your skin’s natural glow. Our Body Love Radiance Renew Body Cleanser is serum-infused for dull, uneven skin gently exfoliates to reveal radiant, illuminated and smooth skin. Or you could use another body wash, followed up by an exfoliating body polish. Expert tip? Aim to use it once or twice a week to keep your skin super silky. 

Wondering what to put on dry skin? 

Did you know you can start your moisturizing routine in the shower? Our caring, nourishing Body Love Moisture Boost Serum-Infused Body Cleanser helps boost your skin’s moisture barrier for 24-hour softness. Follow up with a repairing balm or lotion to lock in maximum moisture.

Regular exfoliation and moisturizing are good do’s for dry skin, but what about the don’ts? It’s best to avoid long, hot showers or baths, as hot water can strip oils from your skin. Instead, turn the temperature down and try to limit your bath or shower time. Harsh, drying bar soaps are also to be avoided. Switch to gentle, moisturizing cleansers like our famous beauty bar.

Which Dove body wash is best for dry skin?

Dry skin deserves some extra care, so using creamy body washes with naturally derived moisturizers is a great idea. If your skin feels more dehydrated than dry, hydrate and refresh it with our Hydrating Body Wash with the scent of birch water and aloe. If it leans more on the sensitive side, give it some extra-special treatment with this body wash.
