Every woman wants the smoothest, silkiest skin possible but it seems like no matter what they do or how hard they try, their skin just seems to get rougher and drier. Actually, according to board certified dermatologist, Dr. Jessica Krant, that may be the problem. Women just try too hard and in so doing will do more damage than good. If you are looking for the silkiest smoothest skin imaginable, here are great four ways for you to have the skin of your dreams.
1. Avoid Over Washing and Harsh Soaps
Most women are laboring under the impression that they need to scrub their face several times a day. This could be the most worst move they can make if the silky smooth skin they are looking for is on their face. Dr. Krant says that the market is flooded with all kinds of anti-aging products that dry the skin and result in rough patches that will then need to be re-moisturized. Also, makeup should be removed gently and the face only needs to be washed in the morning and before bed. But, you should never use strong soaps or facial scrubs.
2. Drink Plenty of Water and Eat Healthy
Although everyone should have to drink plenty of fresh water each and every day, anyone looking to clear up skin problems and promote smoother skin should pay special attention to the amount they drink. Women need to drink at least a half-gallon of water daily – this will accomplish at least two things. Water flushes toxins known to cause blemishes from the body and will also help to keep your skin more moisturized and smooth. When it comes to a healthy diet, ensure that you get plenty of the Omega-3 group of fatty acids and green vegetables. It is even suggested that you blend a green veggie juice to help with the water you need while adding those nutrients needed for clear and smooth skin. Antioxidants also help to rid the body of blemish-causing toxins.
3. Exfoliate Gently
There has been so much attention given to exfoliation that sometimes women tend to get carried away. If you are looking for smooth skin, especially on the face and legs, exfoliation can help slough away dead, flaky skin cells. However, don’t take it to extremes. Use a technique and exfoliating product that gently removes dead skin without causing those angry red spots that result from rough exfoliation. Again, less is more.
4. Use a High Quality Epilator
One of the detriments to silky smooth skin is hair. Shaving to remove hair from the body tends to cause dry skin. But, with a high quality epilator you can literally tweeze body hair so that it is removed from beneath the epidermis, thereby reducing that rough stubble that is left when shaving the arms, legs and facial hair. The best epilator to use would be one that can be used with or without water. These are labeled ‘wet / dry’ epilators and should normally be used with water for the best results if you are looking for gorgeous and smooth skin.
Of course there are a number of other ways to accomplish your goals but these four ways to get silky smooth skin are the best ways to get started. If you do nothing else than what you’ve read here, you can expect your skin to start improving almost immediately. Remember Dr. Krant’s mantra – ‘less is more’ and you will see that it isn’t as hard as you thought it would be to get the results you desire.
