We’ve all been taking good care of our faces, right? Splurging on fancy products, slathering ourselves in 10-step skincare routines, gua-sha-ing and cold rolling and layering on the sunscreen? But in putting our best faces forward, we’ve actually done a disservice to the rest of our skin. Anything below the neck? Neglected.

That’s all about to change, though, thanks to the new Dove Serum Shower Collection—a line of body washes packed with active skincare ingredients to target specific skin issues like dry skin, uneven tone, backne (the dreaded back acne) and more. We’ve got your skin goal and the right body wash to achieve it below.

Acne Clear 1
Dove/Paula Boudes for PureWow

Posterior pimples don’t stand a chance against new Dove Acne Clear body wash that’s PETA-certified vegan and paraben- and sulfate-free. It contains 1 percent clearing serum with salicylic acid acne treatment to cleanse skin, penetrate pores and help beat those uninvited breakouts—all with a refreshing herbal scent of mint, eucalyptus and tea tree.

Hydration Boost 1

Parched skin, whether it be from winter dryness or summer heat, needs more than just any ol’ soap. New Dove ultra-moisturizing body wash uses 6 percent hydration serum with hyaluronic acid and squalene for 24 hours of silky soft skin. It drenches dryness with moisture and the soft floral scent of garden rose and jasmine.

Melanin Even Tone 1

Dove partnered with dermatologists of color to create this body wash specifically for melanin-rich skin. It’s pH-balanced and contains 5 percent pro-ceramide serum with BHA, so it gently exfoliates to promote skin renewal and maintain allover even skin tone, with refreshingly tropical notes of coconut, mango, and grapefruit.

Glow Recharge 1

Restore luminosity and brightness with Glow Recharge. The energizing, citrusy fragrance has notes of blood orange, passionfruit and yuzu, and its 3 percent brightening serum with vitamin C and exfoliating minerals helps to scrub away dull skin so your best body can shine through.

Ultra Sensitive 1

Unending list of complicated ingredients, who? Give your sensitive skin the extra TLC it needs. Containing only 10 ingredients, this fragrance-free body wash is gentle on delicate skin and is vegan, paraben- and sulfate-free.
