Tips for smoother skin without adding more time to your beauty routine

Article by Ceri Wheeldon

I always like use products that do more than one thing – I’m far too busy to do ‘body by numbers’!

I think as we get older our skin gets drier. When I remember I do ‘body brush’ in order to help improve overall circulation and skin tone, but I have found that simple things like shower gels and deodorants that were former favourites can tend to have a drying effect on the skin.

I have also found myself increasingly using products which moisturise as well as cleanse, and if you look at my previous reviews you will see that I have been a long time fan of Dove products – and have used their moisturising body wash for some time.

With a long weekend planned in the South of France, and the prospect of wearing sleeveless tops looming, I wanted my skin to look its best, so I switched from my regular brand to Dove Original deodorant ( I used the roll on RRP £2.24 for 50ml) as it  moisturises as well as protects. It has Vitamin E as well as unique ¼ moisturising cream to deeply nourish underarm skin. I could see and feel a difference in less than a week. (In fact Dove promises that you will see a difference in just 7 days).

I always like to see a difference without having to make any extra effort or add minutes to my daily routine so for me a deodorant with added moisturiser makes sense.

Another ‘dual purpose’ and time saving tip is to sleep on a  silk pillow case – it  saves me hours over the course of the week as my hair no longer starts the day as a mass of tangles AND you avoid ‘ sleep lines’ settling into our face if like me you happen to sleep on your side.

So , those are my ‘doubling up’ anti-ageing beauty tips for now- I will share more as I find them!
