Skin Takes Center Stage

From everyday occurrences like spending time with family and friends to ultimate spotlight moments like being on national TV, a woman’s skin is always front and center. After all, it is the body’s largest organ with an average surface area of 16 to 21 feet making it the most visible of all body parts. That is why it is important for women to remember looking their best starts with having beautiful skin.

“When I was on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ there was so much emphasis on my hair and makeup, but it was my skin that was really in the spotlight – especially with the tiny costumes I had to wear!” said Garth. “I love that Dove® VisibleCare™ Body Washes allow my beauty routine to start in the shower. They make my skin soft, smooth and visibly more beautiful so I am now close-up ready every day.”

A Visible Difference

With Dove® VisibleCare™ Body Washes, beautiful skin now starts in the most unexpected of places – the shower. The new body washes are specially designed to give women visibly more beautiful skin in just one week. When used daily, the formula actually improves the look of skin making it softer, smoother and always close-up ready. The collection is available in two variants – Softening and Renewing – and can be found at food, drug, mass and club retailers.
