If you’re like the rest of us, you know what it’s like to try anything and everything to get silky, smooth skin. Not only are we trying to remove unwanted hair from our bodies without having to dedicate too much time or effort to the process, but we’re also trying to figure out the best ways to exfoliate and moisturize so we can have flawless, beautiful skin. The trouble is, in a dry climate, like Texas, smooth skin can be hard to keep up with, and keeping your unwanted hair tamed can be an even trickier task. If you’re looking for a new way to get silky, smooth skin, you may want to try laser hair removal in Houston at Novopelle Med Spa. And if you need a few tips on how you can treat your skin in order to get the smooth skin you desire, we have a few tips for you!
Our Top Tips For Smooth Skin
#1. Dry brush your skin.
No, you won’t be using a hairbrush for this. Dry brushing your skin is as easy as keeping a dry loofah on hand and rubbing the dry loofah across your body before you get into the shower. While using a loofah in the shower is beneficial, if you use a dry loofah before you hop into the shower, you will be able to better remove the top layer of dry, dead skin cells. Then, when you’re in the shower, you can really exfoliate your skin with your loofah for even better results.
#2. Get a good body scrub.
When you shower, you’re going to want to use a body scrub that will work for your skin type. Dry skin versus oily skin will need different kinds of body scrub. Sugar scrubs are all the rage right now, and not only will you achieve smooth skin with its use, but you’ll also smell delicious! You can even try adding sugar to your regular body wash if you’d like to get an idea of what using a sugar scrub is like.
#3. Have some additional scrubbing tools on hand.
Aside from body scrub and a loofah, you may want to have some other methods for scrubbing your body. Scrubbing gloves are a convenient tool to have that may be able to get parts of your body better than you loofah. A Back brush may also come in handy for making sure your back gets the exfoliation it needs. And you’ll definitely want something to keep your feet smooth. A pumice stone is good for calluses and keeping your feet well-maintained.
#4. Try moisturizing with oil.
Once you’ve exfoliated, you can’t forget to moisturize! If you’ve never tried moisturizing with oil, your skin could be missing out! You can try anything from baby oil to coconut oil. Oil will really help to lock in the moisture and your skin will feel ridiculously smooth. Putting oil on your skin is best right after you’ve gotten out of the shower.
#5. Have a good go-to lotion.
While oil is a good, after-shower moisturizer, everyone needs a good lotion for their face and skin. Again, just like with body scrub, you’ll want a lotion that is good for your skin type. You’ll want to put lotion on your entire body—don’t skip important areas, like your heels, knees, and elbows!
#6. Make sure you are using sunscreen.
Whether you’re going to be out in the sun all day or you’re just planning on running a few errands, sunscreen is key to ensuring that the sun won’t dry out your skin. Protecting your skin from the sun not only helps to reduce dryness, but it will also help your anti-aging efforts.
#7. Increase your water intake.
Your body loves water! Drinking water has a lot of health benefits, and it also benefits the way your skin looks. If you’re not drinking enough water, you may experience dry skin without a lot of glow to it. If you feel like your skin is dry and everything else you’re doing isn’t working, the answer could lie in increasing the amount of water you’re drinking. Try adding an extra 16 to 24 ounces to your water intake for the day and see how your skin feels the next day.
A Bonus Tip For Silky, Smooth Skin
Your skin needs a lot of attention in order to keep it feeling smooth. Smooth skin is also a product of getting rid of unwanted hair on your body. When you shave and wax, your hair will eventually grow back, taking away the smooth feeling you love. If you’re tired of sacrificing smooth skin to hair growth, you may want to try laser hair removal for a long-term solution to having unwanted, rough hair on your body.
