Besides a clear glow in our skin, we all want it to be soft and smooth. In a nutshell, the easiest way to make your skin soft and silky is to clean with gentle soap twice a day and exfoliate three times a week. Apply moisturizer before bed and wear sunscreen outside to protect your skin. That’s not too hard, is it? Here is a look in details on how you could get baby soft skin:
Cleanse your skin at least once a day
Use products suitable for your skin type and remember, you may need a different product for the skin on your face and the skin on your body. Use a mild, gentle cleanser and apply moisturizer after washing.
Increase your liquid intake
Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. Being well hydrated is good for both the health and appearance of your skin. Make fresh fruit juices at home of apples, oranges, papaya, tomatoes, carrots, etc and drink it up.
Exfoliate three times a week
Exfoliating 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. However, if you have extra sensitive skin, exfoliate bi-weekly or even fortnight instead.
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.
Select a suitable moisturizer for your skin type and age. If the product you once liked does not seem to be as effective, this is often a sign you need to change to something else. This can occur as your skin ages and its needs are different. Choices include lotion or cream. Apply the moisturizer before you leave the bathroom after a shower.
Wear sun-block if you're going to step outside
One of the reasons babies have such soft skin is that they haven't been exposed to the harmful effects of UV rays. Wear hats or scarves when you go out during noon. Try to avoid the harsh sunlight from midday to 3pm.
Create a bedtime routine
Remove makeup carefully. Clean your face. Put on night creams or moisturizers. If you want to see a specific result such as remove blemishes or get whiter skin, opt for a cream that does just that.
In short, follow this routine and within a week you will begin to see great results.
