Get Sensational Skin - by Editor

What woman wouldn't love to have soft, smooth skin silky to the touch? However, thanks to body hair and various methods of hair removal, silky skin is not easily achievable. Here are some tips on how to keep skin soft and smooth.

Unless you have a very hairy back, don�t wax it. Surprisingly women who have barely discernable body hair on their back still want to wax it, with the result that their backs get getting rough when the hair starts growing back. Soon in-growths or a rash starts developing causing further roughness. If you wear clothes that reveal your back, consider bleaching your hair on the back instead of waxing it.
Massage oil on your body once a week if possible, or at least once a month. Try and organize a massagewalli to come in and give you a body massage. Over time your muscles will get more supple, circulation will improve, and your skin texture will smoothen. After getting a massage, don�t take a shower for at least fifteen minutes to half an hour. Give your body time to absorb the oils. If you have access to a steam room, make sure you get some steam so the pores open and the oils get absorbed better.
Drink at least ten to twelve glasses of water a day. Your skin needs water to remain free from toxins. In addition, water heals and cleans all impurities from the inside out.
As far as possible, shower with cold water. Showering with hot water causes pores to open, with the result that your skin absorbs more of the chlorine in the water than it would if you were to shower with cold water. In addition, cold water increases circulation and cause blood to rush to the skin, infusing it with oxygen and minerals.
When taking a shower, after applying soap scrub your legs well with a pumice stone. This reduces in-growths. Scrub gently though � you don�t want to get bruised.
If you live in a warm, humid climate, in all likelihood you will perspire more. In addition, dust, pollution and dead skin also contribute to blocking pores. You need to exfoliate skin regularly in order to keep it healthy and supple. Invest in a loofah and scrub your body well while showering. While the pumice stone can be used on the legs, feet, arms and underarms, use the loofah all over the body, taking care to scrub your back well.

Soft Skin Mask

Here's a great mask to put on your skin for instant softness.

You will need:

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil or vegetable glycerin
A healing substance like Vitamin C crystals or aloe vera gel
A few drops of essential oil like lavender (optional)
Mix these ingredients together until you have a paste, and apply it all over your body. Leave on for five minutes until the mixture tightens. Wash off with cool to lukewarm water. You will feel the difference in your skin texture almost immediately.
Don�t try this just before an important even as it may leave a little redness on your skin depending on how sensitive it is.

Comments:   If you have dry skin, it´s best to apply sugar scrub and apricot scrub while taking a shower. The dead skin will be scrubbed away, leaving you with a more soft feel to your skin. After you´re done taking a shower you should apply Aveeno. It helps lock in the moisture.
