No matter what type of skin you have it is advisable to deep cleanse your face once week. The best method is a steam bath.

The towel must encircle your face in order to concentrate the effect of the steam. Stay under for 10-15 minutes, then pat your face dry with a soft towel.

I know that Dove won an award recently for this product , however "Garnier Summer Body" is a wonderful cream, it smells fruity and does not develop that awful fake tan smell, for a gradual tan that looks natural this is a winner!
