We can make our dream of having soft and smooth skin a reality. All you have to do is to target your skin with the right kind of care. Skin care guide.
For a happy, beautiful, soft, smooth and glowing skin, you need to pay daily attention to it, give the moisturize it needs (inside and out) and use products that nourish.
Skin Care and Wrinkle Prevention
Steps to follow when it comes to your skin care beauty routine:
Step 1 – Exfoliate
Give a good foundation to your skin and exfoliate to achieve soft and smooth skin. With exfoliating, you will remove all the debris and dead cells, hence keeping your body skin glowing and radiant, with a youthful appearance and wrinkle prevention.
Step 2 – Moisturise
And your skin will feel beautiful! Another important element of your smooth, soft, wrinkle prevention skin is moisturizing. By applying nourishing, hydrating, rejuvenating moisturizer creams, not only you will replenish your skin but you will protect the skin barrier keeping it soft and radiant. Moisturizers are specifically formulated as anti-pollution skin care that helps rid skin of dirt, dust or soot particles. Many of them contain high antioxidant levels which help to fight off free radicals. Everyone should ensure they are using products with antioxidants to help prevent premature aging due to pollution and environmental damage.
To restore the natural moisture to your skin, making it soft, smooth and glowing you need to moisturize it daily. Some people like to use a separate moisturizer designed for the eye area to prevent aging or swelling.

Step 3 – Look for nourishing ingredients in skin care products
When purchasing skin products, look out for skin-smoothing ingredients (like nourishing oils and butter, which help to protect your skin and seal in moisture).
Instead of petroleum derivatives, look for skin care products that contain pure cold-pressed vegetable oils. When the oil is not refined, it will retain all the natural vitamin content that comes from the plant, also omega 3, 6 and 9 and natural minerals, which are extremely beneficial to the skin.
You can use cold pressed oils as massage oils or it can be used as facial cleansers (examples of oils: golden jojoba or peach kernel) or even as a hair treatment for stressed, dull, dry, colored hair (coconut oil, jojoba, sweet almond). However, when these natural oils are being used in a skin care product it becomes a very effective moisturizer that will prevent wrinkles and it will make your skin smooth and glowing.
Step 4 – Your hands are important too
Aging process will not avoid your hands either. The skin on the hands is thinner and has fewer oil glands, meaning it is quite hard to keep it moist (especially in cold or dry weather). All too often we don’t moisturize our hands until it’s too late. Make your hand skin smooth and soft by applying creams every night before bed time.
Step 5 – Stick to warm water
Hot water is not good for your skin as high temperature can melt away your skin’s protective lipid layer (helps your skin retain water, stay soft and prevent wrinkles). Even though, after a long day at work we might be tempted to have a long hot shower or bath, try as much as possible to avoid it and stick to warm water – you might notice the difference!
Step 6 – Protect your skin from the weather
Make sure you are tailoring your products based on the season as it will help prevent wrinkles, keep away dry, rough skin caused by the cold weather and lack of humidity in the air. With harsh weather conditions, include in your skin care routine a rich and intense moisturizer. If your skin is neither dry nor oily, you are lucky, however, you should still take good care of your skin – with a season change your skin will change as well.
Step 7 – Avoid products with Parabens
Although parabens preserve skin care products and give them a longer shelf life, they actually have the potential to cause more harm than good, based on many studies – parabens have been detected in breast cancer tumors, hence the reasons they have become so controversial. Paraben doesn’t always appear by itself and it is usually part of a longer ingredient, such as methylparaben, propylparaben, and butylparaben.
Step 8 – For a sensitive skin use products that are fragrance-free and hypoallergenic
Look for skin care products (such as makeup, exfoliators, toners) that are hypoallergenic, fragrance-free. The ingredients that are good for sensitive skin and are quite commonly found in skin care products are bisabolol, chamomile, calamine, camphor, coconut oil, lavender, lemon grass, rosemary, thyme, allantoin, aloe vera, and azulene.
A healthy and glowing skin is also the indication of the healthy state of the body!
