Who doesn’t want to have soft skin? As we get older, it gets tougher to keep our skin feeling baby soft. Here are my soft skin tricks that have worked great for me.
~ Make sure to have a good body wash/soap/gel that works for your skin. I use BubbleBabez’s Land of Milk and Honey. It leaves my skin clean and soft.
~ Exfoliate! I try to do this every other day. I like to use a body scrub – again from BubbleBabez. They have great bath products and their body scrubs smell fabulous as well as leave my skin super soft.
~ Once I’m done showering, I stay inside the shower and pat dry my body. I don’t let my body get completely dried out.
~ Before getting out of the shower, I apply a body oil. I usually take my showers in the morning so I use a light weight body oil. If I take showers at night, I use one that is a little thicker. I don’t like strong-smelling oils so I use Neutrogena’s Fragrance Free Body Oil. It’s very lightweight and easily absorbs into my skin.
~ I put on a robe when I step out. It helps keep my body warm and helps the oil get absorbed into my skin.
~ I apply lotion. This is where I use pretty smelling stuff. One of my faves is Lotion Bars from BubbleBabez. I work from the top down. I use a thicker lotion for my feet. Then I put my robe back on and throw socks on.
My skin stays soft all day. I don’t use perfume because I use my pretty smelling lotions and the fragrance lasts all day. I also put lotion on my hands, arms, and feet before going to bed. What is important is to find products that work for your body and that you like.
