If there is one critical thing we can do for the largest organ on our body, it’s to keep it smooth and soft. We are talking about our skin, of course! Regardless of the season, you can be proactive by following some of the most basic skin care guidelines. After all, softer, smoother skin is not only healthy for you on the inside, it’s healthy for you on the outside too! Drinking a lot of water on a daily basis over time will prevent stubborn acne, and promote healthier, clearer skin that glows. You will notice more color and liveliness to your skin as you drink more and more water, and less sugary, carbonated drinks. Everyone wants to look and feel their best, and with smooth skin, you can’t help but feel like a million dollars.

It really can’t be recommended enough. The first and easiest rule of thumb for attaining silky soft, smooth skin, is to stay hydrated. Drinking water is the key to all good health practices. Our bodies are made up of 70% water, so it makes sense to keep our bodies moist from the inside out. Although there are no official recommendations for how much plain water adults should drink on a daily basis, also referred to as “DFI” or “daily fluid intake”, the FDA does recommend drinking it every day.
Daily fluid intake recommendations vary depending on several factors, including age, gender, pregnancy, breastfeeding stage, and more. According to the CDC, a healthy person meets their daily fluid intake by simply drinking when thirsty, drinking with every meal, and maintaining a well-balanced diet. Not too keen on the taste of water? Try flavor droplets and additives to help, or infuse your water with natural ingredients like lemon, orange, basil, mint, and cucumber.
When the body is well-hydrated, your skin is in a great place for improvement. Beyond drinking plenty of water, you need to give your skin some added moisture. Moisturizing on a daily basis will give your skin the added boost of hydration it needs to maintain a glowing complexion, year-round. Just be sure to use a quality lotion or cream that is oil-based, rather than water-based. When shopping for a moisturizer or body lotion, look for healthy and effective ingredients like Vitamin E, avocado oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, hemp seed oil, and silicon. Ingredients for improved skin complexion, pigmentation, and tone include beta carotene, caffeine, vitamin A, retinyl palmitate, Vitamin E, Vitamin B-2 (riboflavin), and tyrosine.
Removing Unwanted Hair
It is difficult to call skins “smooth” when it is growing hair all the time. For this reason, one of the ultimate methods of achieving the smoothest, softest skin is hair removal. Although you can opt for store-bought products and devices, like depilatory creams, tweezers, waxing kits, razors, and even at-home epilator setups, these are not going to deliver permanent results. Even laser hair removal technology is not a permanent solution to unwanted hair growth. The laser hair removal procedure only delays hair growth for a long time, making it a hair reduction method, rather than a hair removal method.
The best way to get rid of unwanted body hair, regardless of location, is to choose electrolysis. In fact, electrolysis is the ONLY method of permanent hair removal recognized by both the American Medical Association (AMA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). See our blog, “Are Temporary Methods of Hair Removal Better Than Electrolysis?” to learn why permanent hair removal is smarter than the other options available on the market.
