How To Have Baby Smooth Skin

by Anjelina Tongco

Everyone dreams of having baby smooth skin. Good skin is a great indicator of good health, youth, and beauty which is why a lot of people put lots of effort into caring for and maintaining their skin. Looking for tips on getting that baby smooth skin and youthful glow? Check these out. 

  1. Exfoliate - regular exfoliation is key to having smooth, baby-soft skin. There are plenty of natural ingredients that you can use to do this like sugar in sugar scrubs, coffee grounds in coffee scrubs, baking soda, oatmeal, and more. Of course, you can try using chemical peels to exfoliate, too, but make sure you’re not getting one that’s too harsh for your skin. 
  2. Cleanse gently - heavily fragranced soaps and shower gels may get you smelling fresh for a few hours after you step out of the shower but it can have a drying effect on your skin. To avoid this, go for gentle moisturizing cleansers, both for your face and your body, to keep the skin supple and soft.
  3. Get enough sleep - cliche as it may sound, getting the right amount of restful sleep every night is key to keeping your skin looking young. Avoid staying up late if possible. For those working the night shift, getting plenty of uninterrupted sleep hours during the day is a must. 
  4. Drink plenty of liquids - another really good way to keep your skin smooth and soft is by keeping yourself hydrated. Dryness ages your skin and makes it sag. That’s the exact opposite of what you want when you’re going for baby-smooth. 
  5. Don’t forget the SPF - sun protection is important in keeping your skin looking youthful and healthy. The sun’s harmful UV rays can damage the skin and age it faster so lather some sunscreen on before you head out the door and reapply whenever needed. This applies to your scalp, too, so try looking for haircare products with SPF. For the best coverage, get a product that contains broad-spectrum SPF. 
  6. Moisturize your skin - aside from keeping yourself hydrated on the inside, you’re also going to want to make sure that your skin is moisturized on the outside. To do this, you’re going to want to use a moisturizer that’s compatible with your skin type. Avoid thick and rich products if you have oily skin. If you have dry skin, watery and gel-based moisturizers may not do much for you. Do your research before you buy a moisturizer to use for your everyday skin moisturization needs. 
  7. Get rid of excess hair - for truly baby-smooth skin, you need to get rid of excess facial and body hair. Avoid abrasive methods like shaving, those could make your skin feel rough in the long run. Instead, go for depilatory creams or waxing to get rid of those hairs from the root to the tip, leaving your skin super smooth. 
Of course, you’re going to need to keep a healthy routine, too, to keep your skin looking young and feeling smooth. For more skincare and beauty needs, check out!
