5 Tips for Baby Smooth Skin
No matter how hard we try, it can be difficult to find easy ways to get baby smooth skin. Even harder than achieving it is keeping it baby smooth if we get it there temporarily! Don’t get discouraged, there are a few tips we recommend to easily obtain and maintain that baby smooth skin!
1. Cleanse your skin twice a day
Cleanse your skin twice a day, morning and night, with a gentle exfoliating cleanser. This will help remove any dirt and oil build-up that develops throughout the day, as well as remove any dead skin that naturally collects on our face. Once that dead skin is gently sloughed off, new and restored skin can surface allowing your skin to look and feel baby skin smooth!
2. Exfoliate 2-3 times a week
Exfoliate if you don’t use daily exfoliating cleanser and just use a regular cleanser instead. Some people’s skin is too sensitive to use an exfoliant every day, and if you are in this category, exfoliate 2-3 times a week with a gentle exfoliating scrub instead. This will remove dead skin cells (cellular build-up) and any oil and dirt deposits that have been missed by daily cleansing.
3. Pat Skin Dry
When you step out of the bath or shower, gently pat yourself dry with a fluffy towel instead of drying quickly and tearing at your skin with a rough and overly starched towel. Rubbing an abrasive towel across your damp skin will remove layers of skin in a rough manner, irritating your skin and causing little bumps and rashes.
Before dressing for the day, make sure you remember to apply body lotion to your body, including the neck area. The first two minutes from exiting the shower is the ideal time to lock in that moisture.
5. Wear Sunblock
If you are going to be spending a reasonable amount of time outdoors, make sure to use the sun screen with a minimum SPF of 30 every couple of hours, especially if you are going to be in the water or excessively sweating. The main reason a baby’s skin is so soft is because they are always well-covered from the natural elements and they are not outdoors long enough to have any type of damaging effects on their delicate skin.
Following these simple steps will help you achieve that baby soft skin in no time. Take care of your skin and you will take years off of your actual age. Why be in such a hurry in life that you don’t take care of what really matters…you.
