Can you tell us a little about the product you have entered into the awards, and why you think it is suitably pampering?
The Dove Purely Pampering Nourishing Body Oils are incredibly pampering with sensual benefits. Natural oils that sink into your skin as soon as you apply, but also that keep your skin looking and feeling silky smooth without being greasy, are a huge benefit for consumer. Not only is it great for your skin it feels great and smells beautiful too. You can’t help but feel like you have brought the spa home.
Why do you think it stands out among the plethora of pampering products available?
Pampering isn't just about nice bottles and gorgeous fragrances – it’s about how you feel while you use it and throughout the day.
The Dove Purely Pampering Nourishing Body Oils are made with natural oils that your skin can naturally break down and incorporate into your skins barrier. This then helps your skin improve its look and feel immediately and long term too.
The Oils have been blended by some of the leading experts to not just be good for your skin but absorb so quickly you don’t have to worry about greasy marks or sticky skin. And finally we then work with the leading fragrance experts to take you on a Purely Pampering journey for all your senses.
Why do you think it is important for mums-to-be and new mums to take the time to pamper themselves?
It is well known that mums and mums to be are short on time. There is never enough time to do everything and the first thing to suffer is ‘me time’.
But just a few minutes of care can change how you feel about yourself, and if our oils can do pampering and care together it’s a much more effective use of their precious time. Knowing you have looked after yourself makes you feel good inside, which shows on the outside and a happy and relaxed mum makes for a happy and relaxed baby ...and actually the whole household!
Can you give us top tips for a mum-to-be for the best pregnancy safe ways to feel pampered?
Feeling pampered can be a million little things. Whether it’s a long soak in the bath or a spa day, or your favourite product in a stolen minute of the day, you know your body and what you enjoy.
During your pregnancy, your hormones can change how you react to products so listen to what your body says.
As for top tips, every person is unique but don't forget to take a little time every day to concentrate on celebrating you. It could be doing your hair or an extra five minutes doing something special with your make up. Take 5 minutes after your bath or shower and pamper yourself twice! Wrap your skin in a silky pampering oil like Dove Purely Pampering Warm Vanilla and Shea Butter body oil and transform dry skin into gorgeously glowing skin.
What is the secret to glowing skin?
Keeping your skin moisturised is all you need to make sure your skin looks great - locking in that extra moisture helps your skin’s natural exfoliation process which means your skin is in better condition leaving it smooth, soft and more resilient to stretch marks. Light then reflects off the surface giving you truly glowing skin that lasts.
