It’s Bronwyn here today to share with you our best tips and tricks on how to get smooth skin! Transforming dull and rough textured skin to have a soft and silky look and feel! And no, I am not talking about your body skin, but your facial skin!
The skin on our face tends to be prone to the most textural issues. These issues can be caused by many different factors such as dryness, change of seasons, and different forms of acne. But today, I will share with you the best ways you can improve your skin texture no matter what the factors may be!
DO YOU HAVE ROUGH SKIN TEXTURE?
There are some different skin textures that can be categorized as having a rough skin texture:
- lumps on the skin
- flaking skin
- peeling skin
- small blackheads and whiteheads on the skin
If you feel you have any of the above conditions, then your skin most certainly is suffering from a rough skin texture! So your question now is “how to get smooth skin?”. Let me tell you!
HOW TO GET SMOOTH SKIN AT HOME
First, I want you to consider your current life style and diet. I know many people hear it all the time that changing your lifestyle and diet are the key, but it truly is and you shouldn’t take it lightly. Diet and life style can strongly influence your skins appearance and texture. So here are some things you may want to change.
Thing’s to change:
- Getting less than 8 hours of sleep
- Sleeping later than 11pm
- Not drinking water or enough water
- Eating sweets, lots of carbs and red meats
- Drinking alcohol regularly
- Not partaking in a proper skincare routine both day and night
If your life currently features any of the above, you will need to seriously consider making a change if you want to improve your skins rough texture. These above factors are the most common causes for those with rough, flaking skin and acne problems and can cause the signs of aging to also appear much soon on your skin, especially for those in their early late 20’s.
SKINCARE ROUTINE FOR SMOOTH SKIN
Now, improving your life style can certainly make a huge difference to improve your skins texture. However, it is important you take a on a proper skincare routine if you are actually planning to make a significant difference on your skins look and feel. I always and strongly recommend using the correct skincare for your skin concerns both day and night. Trust me, you will see a world of difference on your skin once you get started on a proper routine.
Here is our best recommendation on how to get smoothing skin with the right skincare products!
After cleansing, I recommend using a exfoliating pad to gently remove dead skin cells and other rough textures. The COSRX One Step Pimple Clear Pads contain Betaine Salicylate which is a BHA that exfoliates deep in the layers of the skin to smooth away rough textures from dryness and clogged pores such as whiteheads and blackheads. Thus creating smooth and clear skin. Which in turn can help resolve acne pimple breakouts over time!
After using the pads, always make sure to use a toner that calms and hydrates the skin that is alcohol free. Using harsh astringents can cause more harm then good, especially for those ages 20+. Toners should help prep the skin for the leading skincare to come. The Cosrx Centella Water Alcohol Free Toner works to reduce inflammation in the skin that can cause acne and irritation while also adding much needed hydration to reduce dryness and flaking.
Moisturizing the skin is one of the most important steps in every skin care routine, especially if you want to achieve a smoother skin texture. I recommend the Cosrx Oil-Free Ultra-Moisturizing Lotion. This lotion is ideal for those with sensitive skin and those who are acne prone. It’s gentle lightweight oil free formula delivers cell regenerating moisture deep into the layers of the skin without clogging pores. Making it ideal for those who have dry & dehydrated acne prone skin as your first step in moisture for both day and night.
This step is my favorite step for both day and night! Yup that is right, this wonderful mask can be used as both a day cream and a night mask! It’s unique light weight formula creates the perfect moisture layer on the skin while the benefits of rice smooth away uneven skin texture over time for a smoother skin texture. After using the lotion, I recommend smoothing a very thin layer of this mask over the skin during the day. Then during the night add a thicker layer overtop of your favorite night cream to seal in the effects!
Yes thats right! This snail mucin mask contains multiple benefits for rough skin. It deeply hydrates and repairs the skin while providing rich nourishment to better improve the skins texture and provide anti-aging benefits over time with continual use.
I recommend using it once a week to give your skin the boost it needs!
