Get Silky Smooth Skin with This Tips

Most Spas provide some sort of skin softening service where they can drench your skin in some form of moisture rich emollients. I recently got to learn one of the coolest skin softening treatments, where your skin is wrapped in chocolate! Can you imagine! What woman wouldn’t want to be wrapped head to toe in chocolate?

If you didn’t know, chocolate is a fat, and not to break the mood, but how the treatment is prepared, is they heat the fat and oil produced from chocolate, and mix it into another skin lotion base. Thus you have both the chocolate and the lotion working together.

Now I know we all can’t rush out and get the amount of chocolate you need to do this at home. That would be way too expensive and impractical. Plus you couldn’t rub it all over yourself and get every inch like they do at the spa. So what can you do to have the same silky soft skin without the expense? Here is all you need.

All you need to do is do what you do every day, just add one small ingredient to it. First, take a warm to hot shower, the hotter the better. Why? The heat from the shower not only relaxes your body, and soothes your muscles, but opens the pores of your skin all over your body.

Now shower as you normally would, but at the end, take a wash cloth and soak it with baby oil. With the baby oil drenched wash cloth, step out of the water enough to rub the wash cloth all over your body without being hit by the water spray. Once you have rubbed the baby oil all over your body, let the shower water drench your body for an extra minute, then get out of the shower.

If time permits, don’t towel try, but air dry instead. What you will find is the moisture from the baby oil is literally sucked up by your skin like a sponge, leaving you with softer, smoother skin! Give it a try after a long hard day, and I’m sure it will become one of your favorite bath time rituals.

 

Simple Skin Treatment

Making your own skin treatment at home can help you get the feeling of upscale luxury without paying top dollar. The easiest and perhaps most classic skin treatment involves a single, skin nourishing ingredient: pure honey. To open your pores, drape a warm washcloth over your face for about thirty seconds; then apply a thin layer of honey over the surface of your cheeks, chin, forehead, and any other places that could benefit from an additional infusion of revitalizing moisture. Lie down and relax for ten to fifteen minutes while the honey penetrates your skin and replenishes it with moisture; then gently wipe the honey away with lukewarm water and a washcloth. Splash your face with cool water to snap your pores shut, then pat your face dry gently to seal in the moisture. This simple skin treatment lets you put your best face forward, and can help you give an average day a very special feeling.

Oatmeal makes for another simple skin treatment that is ideal for problem skin. If you suffer from breakouts or sometimes have trouble controlling an oily shine, an oatmeal mask can help pull the excess oil from your face without drying out your skin. This mask will gives you with a healthy, matte complexion that is sure to leave you smiling. Simply mix a bit of water into pure rolled oats to create a thick, moist paste. To open your pores before applying the mask, fill a bowl with hot water and lean over it face first, with a towel draped over the back of your head to create a kind of steam tent. For an extra luxurious scent, add a tablespoon of your favorite herb, like peppermint or rosemary, to the water. Breathe deeply for five to ten minutes, allowing the steam to penetrate the surface of your face. Then, wipe away the moisture on your face with your towel and, using your fingertips, gently apply a thin layer of the oatmeal paste all over your face. Wait for the oatmeal to dry and harden, a process that usually takes between ten and fifteen minutes; then wipe it away with a damp, lukewarm washcloth. Pat your face dry, and enjoy the results of your exquisite homemade skin treatment.

 

About Exfoliate

Exfoliation is a simple idea and has long been a trick of the professional stylist’s trade, but only recently has exfoliation hit the mainstream. When you exfoliate your skin you buff away the dead skin cells that linger on the top of your face, thereby revealing a glowing layer of fresh, young skin. The layers of new skin that your face produces are smooth and soft, and are the perfect surface for flawless makeup application. If you are troubled by flaky areas on your face, or if you find your makeup clumping rather than settling evenly onto the natural contours of your nose, cheeks, and chin, exfoliation may be the answer to your beauty woes.

The most affordable and convenient way to exfoliate is at home with an over-the-counter facial scrub. A scrub containing small, abrasive granules of sugar, crushed walnut shell, or oatmeal can help you whisk away dead skin cells on your face and body. For best results, thoroughly cleanse your face with warm water; then apply the scrub using your fingertips. Draw small circles with your fingers all over your face to gently buff away the dead skin. Splash your face with cool water, pat dry, and enjoy the healthy look of your radiant complexion. Exfoliating helps keep your best looking skin out in the open where everyone can see it, instead of trapped under a thin layer of dead skin cells that can obscure your natural beauty.

For a more complete exfoliation, visit a cosmetologist or a plastic surgeon that specializes in microdermabrasion. This unique treatment makes use of modern technology to give you the most thorough possible exfoliation without damaging the vulnerable young skin you are seeking to reveal. In microdermabrasion, a device not unlike a sandblaster is used to coat your skin with tiny crystals; then a gentle mix of abrasion and suction is applied. The crystals loosen the dead skin cells from the surface of your complexion; then the suction lifts them away.

With multiple treatments, microdermabrasion may reduce the appearance of small wrinkles, helping you achieve a perfect, youthful looking visage for far longer than mother nature intended. This makes microdermabrasion very popular with people in the entertainment and fashion industries, where a youthful appearance is almost a job requirement. However, microdermabrasion can cost a pretty penny. Exfoliating at home can be done quite inexpensively, as facial scrubs start in the range of five to ten dollars. By contrast, a single session of microdermabrasion can cost well over a hundred and fifty dollars.

 

Caring your Skin

The skin is the part of the body, which is exposed constantly to various types of pollutants and harshness from the surroundings. These pollutants harm the skin and the skin loses its youthfulness and glow. Here is some basic information about how to keep your skin healthy. You need to know your skin type before starting any skin care program. There are four basic skin types, normal, oily, dry and sensitive skin.

The purpose of exfoliating your skin is to remove the dead superficial skin cells and to make way for the new skin cells to appear. This will give you a youthful and glowing appearance. The new cells also absorb moisture readily than the dead cells. Exfoliation also improves the blood circulation. You can use a soft natural bristle brush for dry exfoliation. If your skin is oily, then you need to exfoliate atleast 4-5 times a week. Those with dry sensitive skin can exfoliate once or twice per week. In order to keep your skin soft; you need to moisturize your skin. Moisturizers help to draw and seal moisture into the skin. This will rejuvenate the skin cells and make the skin feel soft and glowing. You should not overdo it as it can also result in clogging of the pores. You should select a moisturizer, which suits your skin type. Moisturizers also help to protect your skin from sun damage. Moisturizers with sunscreen are available which can be used in the daytime to protect your skin from the harsh UV light.

You need to invigorate your skin by massaging them in slow circular motion. This will help to improve the circulation and will also prevent formation of wrinkles. In order to have a healthy glowing skin you need to rev up your digestion. Drink plenty of water and eat a balanced healthy food. Avoid oily and junk foodstuffs.
