How to get smooth skin

When it comes to skin care, soft, smooth skin is the dream. The good news? This is a dream we can make a reality – all we have to do is make sure we’re targeting the skin with the right kind of care. Give it the moisture it needs (both inside and out), daily attention and care to keep it happy, and above all, use products that nourish and indulge it, and your skin will be on its way to being beautifully soft, smooth and glowing. So how do you do that? Just check out our smooth skin tips below…

    Soft, smooth skin is built on good foundations, which means exfoliating. A scrub or an exfoliating mitt will help you buff away all the debris and dead skin cells, to help you ward off rough patches and keep your body glowing and radiant

    The ultimate path to smooth skin is moisturising. For beautifully hydrated skin you need a deeply nourishing moisturiser, such as our Essential Nourishment Body Lotion

    Look for nourishing products.

    Look out for skin-smoothing ingredients in your products like nourishing oils and butters, which help to protect your skin and seal in moisture

    Stick to warm water.

    There’s nothing like a hot shower to help take the day off, but it’s not so good for your skin. High temperatures can melt away your skin’s protective lipid layer, which helps your skin retain water and stay soft and smooth, so stick to warm water in your shower and you might notice a difference…

    Protect your skin from the weather.

    Tailoring your products to the season will help prevent the changeable weather from having too much of an effect on your skin. When harsh weather hits, switch your body lotion to an intensive, rich moisturiser such as our Purely Pampering Shea Butter & Warm Vanilla Body Lotion
