A smooth skin is something lovely to behold. If you thought that it meant spending lot of time after a skin care routine, then you thought wrong. There are many smoothing techniques that you can use to get an enviable skin that is soft to touch and beautiful to show off. With such a skin, you can wear those short sleeves or short hemline dresses with great poise. It does not matter what your skin type is or what the season is; with the right care and technique, it is possible to have a blemish-free smooth skin all throughout the year.

All you have to do is use proper skin care routine and products to banish those dead skin cells and bumps. These two are the main culprit for your skin looking rough and dull.

First all, you will need some things to maintain a good healthy skin. They include a cleanser, exfoliating scrub, soft cloth, loofah pad and an oil free moisturizer with sunscreen. Along with using these things, you need to maintain a healthy food habit in order to get a satin smooth skin.

Here is how you do it:
Washing your skin twice daily with warm to cool water and a cleanser suited for your skin type, is the first step. For combination and dry skin, try a cream-based cleanser with a little exfoliation. If your skin is oily in nature, your cleanser should be gel-based for washing away those extra oils. The best time to wash your face is in the morning and in the night before going to bed. Scrub you skin gently with the cleanser of your choice for a minute with a soft cloth.

Along with washing your face twice daily, you need to scrub your body and face with a good exfoliating scrub every few days. Remember to use only your wet fingers when exfoliating the delicate skin of your face. Through this process, you remove the dead skin cells that clog the skin, dirt, tiny bumps and any excess oils. Rough patches are evened out when you exfoliate to reveal a smooth skin that looks younger than before.

After cleansing your face, do not forget to use a good oil-free moisturizer on your face. Your body too has to be moisturized. When you moisturize it properly, you skin stays hydrated which makes it retain its elasticity. By using a moisturizer that also has sunscreen in it will protect your skin from UV rays of the sun that cause uneven skin tone and age spots.

Apart from moisturizing your skin, you need to drink at least eight glasses of water each day to hydrate it from the inside. To have a smooth skin, you also need to eat foods like eggs, leafy green vegetables and nuts because they contain antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids.Lastly, do not forget to visit a dermatologist to analyze your skin. There are many processes like laser resurfacing and microdermabrasion that can also help you to get a beautiful smooth skin.
