Are you suffering from rough, uneven skin? Yearn for the baby soft skin you had when you were younger? Soft skin can be yours – it’s just a matter of finding out how.
Sometimes, it can be dietary. It has been said that rough skin on the backs of the arms is a dairy allergy. Other times, it can just be as simple as changing your shower time ritual.
So what’s the best way to do this?
According to WikiHow, it’s all about regime. Try cleaning your skin at least once a day. It is even better if you can do so twice a day, at morning upon waking up make sure to drink a lot of water. It will boost your immune system! and in the evening before going to bed.
Soap-free facial or body wash and water offer one easy way to cleanse your skin.
Alternatively, choose a specially formulated facial cleanser from your favorite brand range. Follow the instructions it provides.
Always use a soft sponge or face washer to avoid harming your delicate facial skin.
If your skin is sensitive try only taking a shower every other day or every few days. This lets your natural oils nourish your skin. Showering too much with sensitive skin can cause irritation.
Exfoliate thrice a week. In general, a weekly exfoliation will remove dead skin cells and buff the skin back into good condition. Removal of all the dirt, oil build-up and dead cells will leave your skin feeling baby soft.
If you have sensitive skin, exfoliate bi-weekly (every fortnight) instead.
Use an exfoliating scrub. Payot Gelee Gommante Douceur — Melting Exfoliating Gel is an exfoliating jelly which contains no abrasive particles. It offers top performance to boost the skin’s radiance and natural purity. Through its biological method of action, its gentle, rich jelly texture turns an everyday exfoliation ritual into a surprising skincare experience. It also ensures exfoliation that is as gentle as it is effective, even for the most sensitive skin. The skin is incredibly smooth and velvety, its texture is visibly refined.
Purchase exfoliating shower/bath gloves. Or, an exfoliating scrub sponge. If you want to make your own, see How to handcraft an organic loofah.
Run the gloves or scrub sponge up and down your legs gently to lift off dead particles and dirt. Also do your torso and back. Do this under the running water of the shower or in the bath’s water.
Don’t press hard; it should feel pleasant. Do not use this heavy duty scrub on your face (see above instead). Avoid scrubbing sensitive areas such as nipples and genitals.
Pat dry with a big fluffy towel. This is especially important for your face, as rubbing can damage delicate skin. Gently glide the towel over your body and pat dry any really wet spots.
