Wouldn’t you love for your skin to be softer and feel smoother? There are many reasons for this not to happen. You may have hairs growing through, which there isn’t much you can do about. However, it could be the quality of your skin. Here are some tips to make yours feel smoother and softer right now.
Exfoliation is an important part of any beauty routine. If you don’t do it on a daily basis right now, you should start right away. It removes the dead skin cells from your body, letting your newer ones shine through
. It also opens your pores to keep the dirt and grime out. There are plenty of exfoliation products out there but you can create a natural one with half a lemon and some sugar or salt.
The Cuticles are often an area of the body that is forgotten about. The problem is that they become ragged over time and will make the hands feel rough and dry.
You don’t need much cream to look after this area. Just apply it once a day, preferably before you go to bed, and let it do its job.
Moisturizing your skin is another important stage of making it softer. Your skin needs to be hydrated, but that doesn’t mean baths and showers are going to work. If you enjoy hot showers, you’ll find the moisture is pulled out.
Make moisturising part of your daily routine right now. There are some great options, including those with tints if you really want to add some colour at the same time.
Your scalp is skin too and needs some TLC. So many products that go in the hair just dry the scalp out, which can cause problems for the skin and hair. Massage it with some nourishing lotion, especially skin oil.
For those who suffer from greasy hair, use it once a day at night. You can then wash it out the next morning, but it has hours to work on the skin.
The skin will benefit from two vitamins: C and E. You want to make sure they are in your food, as well as in your creams and lotions. Vitamin E is one of the most commonly used now and is easy to find in food.
Vitamin C is often the hardest. There are some great products, but if you want to keep it natural try using citrus fruits to create your own beauty products.
During the day, your skin can start to look tired and dry. You don’t need to wait for the night to do something about it.
There are a range of spray products that will hydrate the skin. You simply spray on the offending area and let them work their way through the layers.
