How to get smooth and soft skin naturally

Whether you are twenty, or fourty, to maintain healthy and soft skin can be really difficult. When you or your partner touches your skin you want it to feel soft and smooth. Especially in the summer time, when you are preparing for the beach. Is your skin getting really dry and dull? Itchy, dry skin is very unpleasant. As we age, our skin develops so many skin problems such as open or enlarges pores, dry or dull skin. This is not going to be happening because of the hormonal changes, but also because of sun exposure, hot bath or shower, harsh soaps, insufficient nutrition and genetics. There are no permanent solutions to turn the clock back, but there are many ways to slow it down. So what can you do to soothe your cracking and dull skin?

If you are women, then you defiantly want soft skin. For that many of us visit spas. What makes the spa so different than what we can do? They offer many treatments to soften our skin. We can do some of these treatments ourselves at home. Sure we could. Will you give yourself a chance to do these treatments? I bet you are.

Before we start, I am not a beauty expert; I have never been to any cosmetology or beauty school. I am definitely not a beauty guru. What ever that even is, these are just the tricks and tips that have worked for me and I know that it surely worked for you.

Wash your face everyday

Wash your face twice a day with good cleanser rather than harsh soaps. Select a cleanser that doesn’t contain sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) because it not only dehydrate your skin but also makes it dry and rough. Wash your face with warm water and pat dry-not rub.

Moisturizer

Moisturize your skin after each bath to soften the skin and peel off dead layers. Don’t use commercial moisturizers because they don’t give such good results. You can use beauty aids mineral oils like

  1. Petroleum jelly
  2. Corn Huskers lotions
  3. Baby oil
  4. Almond oil
  5. Olive oil
  6. Peanut oil

I know we must admit it that little bit greasy but believe me, it’s extremely good to get soft skin.

Exfoliate

Home made defoliators are best because they all natural and it also ensures your skin to stay soft all the times. You can make Exfoliator easily at home by mixing natural ingredients. I personally used many home made exfoliates and it gives fabulous result. Some home made Exfoliators which I personally use are given below.

  1. Coffee, honey and brown sugar
  2. Honey, milk cream and sugar
  3. Sugar and olive oil
  4. Salt and lemon
  5. Honey, brown sugar, lemon

Nutritious diet

To get soften and smooth skin you should start eating a healthy and balanced diet. Include things like fresh vegetables, fresh fruits, fish, eggs, nuts, fatty products like cheese, plain yoghurt, fat free milk etc. You can also add herbal teas in your diet to get clear skin.

Moisturizing baths

You can give yourself a luxurious moisturizing bath itself at home.

  1. Add half liter milk, 3 tablespoons honey, mix it well at the end add vitamin E capsule into water. Dip yourself in the bath tub.
  2. We all know skin soothing properties of oatmeal. Take two cups oatmeal fine powder and pour in warm water, add half liter milk and enjoy.

Home remedies to get soft skin

If you want to keep your skin young and healthy always use natural products which you can easily find in your kitchen.

  1. Mix mashed banana with some milk and apply the mixture on your face. Leave it for about twenty minutes, and then rinse it off with cold water.
  2. Papaya contains natural enzymes, which is wonderful to get soft skin. Mash few pieces of papaya and use as a facial mask. Apply for fifteen minutes then rinse it off. If you want whitening effect, you can add a slice of lemon into papaya mash.
  3. After your shower takes a cotton ball and dip it into warm milk. Rub the cotton ball onto your face and body. After ten to fifteen minutes when milk is completely dry and absorb into your skin. Wash your body again with some cold water to close your pores.
  4. Try an oil massage with almond, olive or coconut oil before your shower. You can also add some drops of oil to your bath water. It will moisturize your skin and gives a silky effect.
  5. Mix walnut powder, lemon juice and honey make a paste and use this mixture as scrub into your face. Leave this mixture into your skin for twenty minutes, and then rinse it with warm water.
  6. To get softer feet, hands as well as other body parts you will need three tablespoons of baby oil. Rub the oil before you are going to sleep. Leave it for a full night.
  7. Fresh tomatoes are great skin toner; you can apply some mash tomatoes instead of chemical toners present in today’s market. Leave it for five minutes, then wash off with cold water.
  8. Add two tablespoons of white flour, two table spoon honey and one tablespoon lemon juice. Mix it well to make a thick paste and apply it to your face. Leave for thirty minutes.

Drinking the right amount of water, maintaining the right amount of sleep and eating healthy diet will make your skin younger and softer. These home remedies take some time to give the result. So, have some patience and be regular with your skin care regime to get softer and healthier skin.

  1. Those sound like some good tips. I had acne when I was a teen and now I found my skin to be a little dry. I already moisturize, but I will give the diet tips a go.

      • Well, I think you need to write about the other gender too, Hari :)
        I know lots of good hydration is good for us all and would like to know are there any good male tips you might have?

    • Actually, dandruff is usually not the cause of dry skin. I wrote a big article on dandruff on our blog. It’s not showing here cause it’s a bit old, but just follow the link to my website and you’ll find the article.
      Cheers – Flo

  3. Excellent tips Hira ;)

    My girlfriend uses most and I subscribe myself. Tough to reduce my time in the sun as I live in Phuket now but I use sunscreen liberally. Diet plays a big part in the quality of your skin too.

    I eat clean; vegetarian, and I keep sweets or greasy foods in check. By simply intending to live a clean life you will wear your age on your face. Or maybe you will appear 20 years younger ;)

    Another tip? Meditate. Honest to goodness, by sitting frequently and learning how to deal with your feelings you can carry a mild glow. The people who take it really far are called “enlightened” for a good reason :)

    Drinking water helps so much. I drink over a gallon a day in this tropical climate. Keeps my skin hydrated. Good stuff.

    Thanks for sharing!

  5. Hey Hira !
    These sound nice tips. But as you know oil is not for those people who have acne.
    Would you please share some tips on smooth and soft skin for those people who have acne?

    • Actually, a good oil like Dr. Alkaitis Nourishing Treatment oil or rms beauty oil, works very well against acne.
      The old Ayurvedic philosophy concerning oil is: “Oil cuts Oil”. A good oil (usually based on jojoba) will have both a therapeutic effect on your skin and it will also bring imbalanced skin into balance.

      A product specific to an acne condition that I can really recommend is Dr. Alkaitis Organic Soothing Gel. It is anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory. You may use it as a spot treatment or just use it all over your face to control bacteria from spreading. The Organic Soothing Gel is also a non-greasy hydration product applicable to acne and problem skin.

      If the acne is going through a very active phase, I recommend Dr. Alkaitis Organic Purifying Cleanser and the Organic Soothing Gel as a daily routine morning and night. In the evening, apply the Nourishing Treatment Oil after cleansing. Massage a small amount on your skin before bed. Once inflammation has been soothed, feel free to incorporate other Dr. Alkaitis or other pure organic skincare products (look at the ingredients) like Tata Harper into your daily routine.

      Makeup is also very important: using good skincare but applying cheap, chemical makeup over it is a waste. Therefore go for brands like rms beauty, ILIA, Hiro Cosmetics, Kjaer Weiss, Vapour organics, and so on.

  6. Wash your face everyday! Well i think everyone follows that thing naturally and that works great..

  7. This mentioned will definitely make any rough skin smooth… but its quit expensive for the average

  8. The article has lots of facts especially when it comes to dealing with natural remedies. They are quite safe and they give better results. But at the same time I was thinking how it would feel or rather smell if you apply milk and bananas on your body/ face.. Yak!

    I thought washing your face with warm water on a daily basis makes the pores enlarge and as a result you get wrinkles? How about using cold water?
    Thanks for sharing.

  9. Thank you for sharing great tips. I have one too. This seriously works great and makes my face baby bum soft!
    1. Pour milk into a dish.
    2. Let sit until room temperature.
    3. Use cloth or cotton ball and dip into milk.
    4. Gently rub milk all over face and let sit until dry.
    5. Rinse with cool water and you will see your results immediately

    I have mild to moderate acne problem but instead of paying so much for acne product or consultation I went to my moms garden and saw her citrus plant. I started massaging my skin with natural citrus juice in morning or at night then washing it with soap and putting some facial cleanser before i go to sleep and after a month you can still see some darken spots but im not having too much acne.. Thanks for the tip Hira.. Im gonna do some of those.

  15. Thanks for the nice post! Tell the truth I’m almost a prof in all skin issues) My Girlfriend takes so good care of her skin and often makes me to follow her as well) So, what i have tried and what have helped me: cabbage leaves for 15 min on face (the skin is getting soften and fresher), mashed strawberries + sour cream (I was impressed how cool the smell was and the effect after) and the most yukky one but as my GF says the most effective is boltings + kefir…

  16. WOW! Very nice home remedies and tips, I will definitely be trying a few of these out. every person has different skin needs and you cover this area very well indeed. Hope I look ten years younger soon!

  17. Oily and fatty food harm your skin alot. If you want smooth and silky skin, eat healthy, and mostly veggies and fruits. It will also make you face more whiten and glowy.

  18. HiHi nice tips! My girlfriend really found your article interesting for her own skin :) Thanks a lot.

  19. Thank you for this post. I live in Vietnam – a tropical country- so my skin always contact with sun lights. I’ll use some tips from you to improve my skin

  20. Papaya facial mask is always a standout performer. It just doesn’t make your skin look fresher, it makes it more supple. I’ll recommend this anyday. Something as simple as washing our faces everyday are always taken for granted. The writer doesn’t need to have attended a beauty school, what she has shared is honored by time. So, won’t you rather have supple skin?

  21. Jane Stevens says:

    Well post and well direction given by the author. I hope it is really valuable post for everyone. No doubt with this.

  22. Hey, nice post. the last line makes a lot of sense. It requires patience but these methods are worth a try. There is no magic that works when it comes to hair or skin.

    Hi Hira,
    Really nice article. I like that you mentioned how diet affects our skin. Totally agree that store bought prducts unless all natural or organice are not good for your skin. They are full of chemicals that are not only bad for your skin but your overall health. A lot of people don’t think about that. thanks for including home remedies to exfoliate.

    • Hello Jessi – Nowadays we can get a huge variety of cosmetic products for which manufacturers promise us that will smooth out all the wrinkles and heal all skin problems. But while it is important to take care of our skin with regular use of good quality and suitable cosmetics on our skin, we must not forget the proper nutrition. The proper intake of food can affect the health of our skin. I always prefer natural home remedies for every one.

  24. It’s totally amazing how a lot of what we eat helps our skin become so soft. I would never think about putting olive oil on my skin but because it’s great for the inside, it’s not a stretch to believe that it would be great for the outside as well. I have to say, some of those masks sound delicious :)
