The Full Body Routine for Silky Smooth Skin
If you’ve ever felt like having soft skin was only possible in fairy tales, we’re here to make your dreams come true. From proper exfoliation to hydration, there are so many ways in which you can ditch dry flakey skin for a luscious and soft alternative. What’s more, with the proper skincare ritual, you can definitely make your skin softer and healthier overall. Snap out of that soft skin daydream, babe. We’re about to help you make it a reality with The Full Body Routine for Silky Smooth Skin.
If you want silky smooth skin, cleansing matters.
Here’s the thing. Soft, hydrated skin goes way beyond moisturizer. How you cleanse your skin is a major key to getting a head start on those silky smooth results.
This is mainly because using the wrong cleanser or body wash can strip your skin of its natural oils. In consequence, your skin is then left feeling dry and/or tight. Meaning, you’ll likely be trying to make up for that loss of hydration by endlessly applying moisturizer when you’re out of the shower. When in fact, hydration starts in the shower.
The body wash that will help keep your skin smooth on the daily.
Pick a body wash or facial cleanser that will get you squeaky clean sans annoying dry-out effects. You know, one that is packed with nourishing essential oils that will leave your skin feeling cleansed yet comfortable. BBE’s body washes are loaded with hydrating jojoba oil and sunflower seed oil. These two hydrating ingredients will replenish your skin and keep it soft. Moreover, these body washes are safe to use for even the most sensitive of babes. This means that even if you’re dealing with severe dryness, you won’t be further irritating your skin by using this product on a daily basis.
Don’t forget the skin on your cute face (because it deserves to be silky smooth, too).
The same rule applies for the precious skin on your face, gorgeous. I mean, we didn’t call this The Full Body Routine for Silky Smooth Skin for nothing! Your facial cleanser of choice is also worthy of some chit chat. Moreover, you might be surprised to learn that your moisturizer isn’t to blame for your skin’s texture. As we mentioned above, the cleanser you are using may be the culprit for your dry not so silky smooth skin. If this is the case, consider switching to a more nourishing alternative. We have a few of these up our sleeves or for the sake of this article, down below.
The foaming face wash: Packed with hydrating essential oils just like the BBE body wash, this is a classic you’ll want to leave in your shower at all times. We love this cleanser for how easily it suds up, which in turn makes your pores feel that much cleaner. Additionally, thanks to its hydrating properties like jojoba oil, it never leaves skin feeling tight like so many cleansers do. Use this guy pre-moisturizer, and you’ll be loving your silky smooth complexion in no time.
The charcoal face bar: If you haven’t heard of this gem, we’re about to put you on to something great, girlfriend. If you struggle with acne or clogged pores, this face bar has all of the things your skin is longing for. Cleansing charcoal acts as a magnet for dirt, while soothing tea tree works wonders to reduce inflammation and keep skin free of bacteria. We also added some hydrating coconut and sunflower seed oil into this bar, so your skin will never be left feeling depleted after cleansing.
The shower tools that will take your silky smooth skin dreams to the next level.
Alright, so you’re all caught up on your cleansing game. And of course, you’ve ditched all of the products that have been drying out your skin this whole time. Cool. You’re now ready to move on to the “heavy lifting” portion of The Full Body Routine for Silky Smooth Skin.
Don’t worry, babe. If we’re being honest, there’s nothing really heavy about it. But exfoliation can definitely be one of the more daunting tasks in a skincare ritual if you haven’t mastered it yet. Exfoliating the skin is necessary for all babes, no matter how great your body wash or cleanser is. Once or twice a week, we recommend getting rid of dead skin cells so that you can make your silky smooth skin dreams a reality.
Using a shower tool like an exfoliating loofah is an easy way to say goodbye to dryness in a cinch. With one of these guys, you can buff your way to softer skin results while using your favorite cleansing or exfoliating products. Oh and, don’t forget the skin on your back either. After all, it deserves love and exfoliation too.
Invest in a body scrub that will get rid of dry spots and give your skin some hydration.
This is the moment you’ve been waiting for, babe. The product that (in conjunction with all of our tips in The Full Body Routine for Silky Smooth Skin) will give you your dreamiest, softest skin yet.
Remember how we talked about cleansers drying out your skin at the beginning of this blog? Well, exfoliators are no different. BBE’s body scrubs aren’t like any of the other exfoliating products out there. Mainly because, on top of a stellar ingredient list, they don’t just get rid of dry flakes. These body scrubs simultaneously hydrate your skin while you exfoliate. Wild, we know. But it’s true, and it’s what your shower routine has been missing. On top of that, you can use any of them 3-4 times a week because they are that gentle on the skin. You’ll be buffing away dead cells and revealing soft, glowing skin after one use – we promise.
And while you’re at it, get all of the scrubs.
Hey, we did call this blog “The Full Body Routine for Silky Smooth Skin”, didn’t we? That means all of you, babe. Including the skin on your lips!
Having a nourishing lip scrub on hand is absolutely crucial for so many babes. Firstly, it is an easy way to get rid of dry or chapped lips no matter what time of year it is. We all know how painful it can be to deal with dryness in this area. Therefore, having a product that is loaded with essential oils is an easy way to avoid this.
BBE’s lip scrubs are totally underrated. And, they are exactly what you need in your back pocket to stay on the smooth lips train (it’s a great ride babe, we highly recommend it). What’s more, applying any of these luscious scrubs to your lips will stimulate circulation and make your pout appear a little plumper and a little rosier. You know, like the perfect complement to a makeup free look where all that silky smooth skin of yours is on display.
And finally, to complete your stellar exfoliating scrub collection, you’ll need BBE’s facial scrub. It is loaded with all of the good stuff (i.e. powerful superfruits your skin will drink up) and will help you get that silky smooth complexion to match the rest of your body. Use this secret weapon once or twice week and watch your hydrating products work wonders. By getting rid of those dead skin cells, you’ll be making room for newer and softer ones. And, you’ll be giving your moisturizer a better shot at hydrating them.
Pick a body moisturizer that suits your needs.
This is probably the step you skipped to before you read The Full Body Routine for Silky Smooth Skin. When struggling with dry or rough skin, so many of us reach for body moisturizer right away instead of going through the motions we just listed above. Now you know better, babe. But don’t dismiss moisturizer just yet. This is definitely an important part of keeping your skin silky smooth, we must admit.
Choosing the right body moisturizer can be just as confusing as doing your taxes. Alright, that’s an exaggeration – but you get where we’re going with this. From hydrating creams to lightweight moisturizers, how is a babe to choose? Luckily you’ve got us, and we’ve broken it down *way* simply, right here.
Consider performing your silky smooth skin routine before you hit the hay.
A lot of the same principles for facial moisturizers will apply to hydrating products that are created for your body. A cream formula will always be thicker as opposed to a hydrating lotion that is made to sink into your skin quickly. Most babes prefer using a lightweight lotion when it comes to moisturizing their bodies because well, it mostly allows you to get dressed quicker!
However, if you struggle with very dry areas on your body, it might be worth switching over to the cream side. Yes, it’s thicker. No, you won’t be able to throw on your jeans right after applying it. But hey, that’s what robes were made for girlfriend. Consider lathering on body cream after your nighttime shower so that you don’t have to worry about getting dressed right afterwards. This will also give your hydrating products more time to sink into your skin and to work more effectively. You’ll wake up feeling silky smooth and your skin will thank you.
Pro-tip: If you can, try to follow up your shower or bath routine with moisturizer every day. Even if you’re using the most perfect cleansers, replenishing your skin with a hydrating product after you’ve gotten clean is super effective. This is because your skin is still damp and your pores are more open, making it a prime time to moisturize away!
We see you, silky smooth skin!
With a few choice products and just a little time for yourself, getting silky smooth skin can be easy peasy. What’s more, including the right products into your daily skincare routine can make all of the difference when it comes to actually preserving that silky smooth goodness. Pay attention to your cleansing products and use the right moisturizers for your skin type. Oh and, exfoliate like a pro. All of these tips and tricks combined will have you asking dry skin, where? Not on you babe, no chance.
