A Step by Step Guide to Your Smoothest Skin Ever
While we all crave silky soft and supple skin, a variety of factors—from environmental to behavioral—can affect the skin texture and make it look rough and dry. Fortunately, there are some easy ways to achieve smoother skin and improve skin texture. Are you ready to kick start the process of getting smoother and healthier skin? Let's get into it then!
But before we take a look at all the steps on how to make your skin softer and tips to get rid of face texture, we need to first understand what causes it.
What causes Rough Skin?
The most common reason for textured skin is a damaged skin barrier, which causes a lack of moisture and also makes skin look dry and dehydrated, the same reason can make your skin feel itchy and irritated.
That's when you start trying out different products and this experimental phase can further damage your skin, making it extra sensitive and irritated.
Moreover, lack of moisture and disrupted barrier can even make your pores clogged, leading to further breakouts. This is because when the skin lacks a protective layer, various harmful and aggressive factors like strong UV rays, pollution, dirt, and impurities, start making a layer on your skin, causing dead skin cell build-up, which if not removed properly, can slow down the natural repairing process of your skin, which means, none of your products would work and your skin will keep getting worse.
Now when you've got a glimpse of how our moisture barrier actually works in maintaining a healthy skin, let's have a look at the best step-by-step routine for your skin, which will not only replenish and restore moisture but will also help to strengthen the skin barrier.
How to Get Smoother Skin and Soft Face
Our skin has invisible cracks in it, very fine, almost like lines, this allows the moisture to escape and irritants to get in more easily. A healthy skin barrier will lock-in the moisture and will also improve overall skin texture and complexion. Start with this routine and get one step closer to smooth skin and better skin tone.
Use a Cleansing Balm or Oil to remove Makeup & SPF
Our cleansers can't dissolve all the makeup and SPF that we use every day, it's always better to use an oil for double-cleansing. This is because oil attracts oil, and effectively dissolves all the water-resistant products, leaving your skin nicely clean and soft.
Switch your cleanser with a pH balanced face wash
Cleansing is the first step to a healthy, glowing skin and you should always be conscious while choosing a cleanser/ face wash. Make sure it's pH balanced so it doesn't strip your skin or mess up the natural oils. Try Ikkai's all-new range of pH-balanced face washes, we have something for every skin type and concern, and what's better, these mocktail face washes are extremely gentle and super refreshing, the best way to pamper your skin this Summer.
Exfoliate- Once/ Twice a week
This is the most important step to get rid of textured skin, as mild exfoliators and scrubs help to remove dead skin cells and improve the appearance of pores. You can try Ikkai's Awesome Almond Scrub, it has a boost of Vitamin E to deeply moisturize your skin while removing all the gunk and build-up. This scrub has a very creamy texture with finely powdered granules, very nourishing, and suitable for all skin types.
Relax with a Mask
Masking is not only the most soothing and relaxing step in the skincare routine, but it's also really effective too, as it works by driving the ingredients closer and deeper into the skin, allowing the skin to soak up more of the product.
To give your skin a boost of glow and hydration, try Ikkai's Face Souffle masks, one of a kind, whipped, and creamy face masks for all skin types!
Summer Sun can leave your skin tanned and dull, don't forget to rejuvenate and freshen it up with a cooling tomato face pack. Ikkai's all new, Tomatina De-Tan Face Pack has soothing tomatoes and powerful niacinamide, a blend known for improving skin texture and enhancing brightness.
Keep your skincare stash ready and don't forget to stock up on some refreshing face masks and packs.
Don't forget to put on a thick lotion all over your body, better if it has SPF. For your face, go for a lightweight crème and top it up with a broad spectrum SPF. For the night routine, use a serum before you layer your moisturizer on top of it. You can use a Vitamin C serum, Niacinamide, and Hyaluronic acid too, but make sure to use them separately, although it's safe to pair them together but it's always better to keep it minimal.
And we're done! But wait, what's happening inside your body is more important than what you put on your skin, a healthy skin comes naturally with a healthy body.
Keep it hydrated from inside too!
Here are a few tips to help your skin repair and heal from inside,
- Keep a check on your caffeine intake, it can really make your skin dry and dehydrated.
- Drink some greens and cooling drinks, vetiver roots can be used to cool down the body and calm the skin. Just put a few strands in an earthen pot and use that water for different purposes.
- Stay Hydrated and practice deep breathing, early morning. It helps to supply a good amount of oxygen to your blood, which in turn reflects on the skin too.
That's it for this time, we hope you've found some good tips to start with, stay consistent and follow these tips religiously to get your best-ever skin, naturally.
