How To Get Smooth Skin

Keeping your skin soft is both beneficial and rewarding because the softer your skin is, the better it will look as you age. If you live in a colder climate, it may not be so easy to maintain soft skin as it would be in a warmer climate. In fact, without proper care, your skin can became dry, flakey and unbearably itchy. You’re going to have to work hard to get your skin to look and feel smooth. Here are some tips that can help you out.

  • As with all beauty tricks, drink a lot of water- at least 8 glasses per day. This helps to flush out toxins in your body.
  • Be sure to use a gentle cleanser on your face every day. When rinsing the cleanser from your face, use lukewarm water.
  • Use an exfoliator on your skin once a week to remove built-up skin cells. If you shave, the razor acts as a natural exfoliator because while it is removing the hair, the razor also takes off the dead skin leaving a clean, polished look.
  • Shower in lukewarm water. Hot water may feel good, but it dries out the natural oils in your skin.
  • After bathing, dry yourself completely and apply baby oil to your entire body.
  • Use moisturizer on your face and body daily. You should moisturize your hands after every time you wash them.
  • Always apply sunscreen before leaving your home as the sun’s UV rays are very harmful to your skin. If your skin is extra sensitive, you may want to wear a hat as well.
  • Before you go to sleep every night, put Vaseline on your feet and then cover them with socks. The socks help lock in the moisture and you should see results in a couple of days.

While it may seem to be a lot to do to keep your skin looking and feeling smooth, it really only takes minutes a day and the results will be worth it. Good luck!
