We cannot forget that, in addition to taking care of it on the outside, to achieve smoother skin it is important to act from the inside. We must stay well hydrated and take care of our emotions.
Tired of having rough or dry skin? Are you sure you are taking proper care of her? And still, don’t you notice smoother skin?
If you follow the steps that we propose, we assure you that your skin will be smoother from the first day.
Why can’t I get smoother skin?
The first thing you should know is that there are many factors that prevent you from having smoother skin:
- Unbalanced diet.
- Bad habits, such as tobacco or alcohol.
- Excess sun exposure.
- Inadequate care.
- Stress and emotional and nervous disorders.
The first step to improving the health and appearance of your skin must go through resolving these factors.
In addition, we give you some tips so that you can get it immediately.
1. Exfoliate it
When the skin is rough, it means that there is an excess of dead cells that, in turn, hinder the regeneration of the dermis.
For this reason, it is advisable to exfoliate once a week or every forth night.
We do not recommend using synthetic exfoliants, since we have at our disposal different natural products that allow us to make homemade and natural peels, such as sodium bicarbonate, sugar, sea salt, or coffee. Find the best products here Exfoliating Your Body.
We will have to choose the thinner or thicker scrub according to the area we want to treat.
We will always use softer exfoliants on the face than on the rest of the body. For better results use the face steamer 4 Functions of a Facial steamer.
2. Go to the beach
A trip to the beach is also a therapy for our skin since we achieve several effects at the same time:
- We exfoliate the skin thanks to the sand and the sea.
- We provide you with minerals.
- We add vitamin D to get a nice tan, as long as we do it in moderation and common sense.
3. Hydrate it
To have smoother skin, in addition to exfoliating it, we must hydrate it, since otherwise, we could dry it too much.
However, it is essential to choose a suitable moisturizing lotion for our skin type, so that it nourishes enough without leaving us oily skin.
One way to achieve this is to apply a vegetable oil just after showering, before drying off.
In this way, the skin will better absorb the product, since the pores will be open due to the heat, and we can remove the excess oil with the towel. The skin will be very hydrated and without shine.
4. Drink water
The skin is hydrated from the outside, but also from the inside.
How? Drinking enough water throughout the day, always outside of meals to achieve the beneficial effect we want: smoother, hydrated skin without impurities.
Our recommendation is as follows:
- Two glasses of water on an empty stomach, twenty minutes before breakfast.
- Three glasses of water throughout the morning.
- Three glasses of water throughout the afternoon.
5. Brush it daily
The dry brushing technique has more and more followers, as it is simple, free, fast, and very effective.
Brushing our skin daily, from the bottom up, always in the direction of the heart, helps us to activate circulation and improve oxygenation of the skin, as well as to combat fluid retention, cellulite, and stretch marks.
We only need a natural bristle brush and a few minutes each day.
