There are many ways to get those smooth legs you’ve always wanted. Some ways are easier than others but all require commitment on your part.
Know Your Exfoliants
Out with the old, in with the new. That is the job of an exfoliant: to remove old and dead skin, allowing new and healthier skin to resurface. I have seen exfoliants at spas and nail shops open near me. Exfoliating is a great way to achieve radiant skin that is soft and smooth because it allows the new skin to retain moisture, which also slows the aging process.
Although exfoliants can help your skin look amazing, if you’re not careful, they can also damage skin that is sensitive, dry, or acne prone. Ingredients in exfoliants can contain fruit seeds, shells, botanical extracts and alpha hydroxyl acids. If you have sensitive skin, it’s best to find a product that has small granules so as not to break the skin. Also, make sure you are not allergic to the ingredients of the exfoliants. Some ingredients can lead to breathing problems, which can make you start storing. You may have to buy the best CPAP machines to stop the snoring.
Here are the three most common ingredients in acid exfoliants:
- Alpha hydroxy acids include Glycolic Acid (Origin:Sugar Cane), Lactic Acid (Milk), Tartaric Acid (Grapes), Citric Acid (Citrus Fruits), Malic Acid (Apples), and Mandelic Acid ( Almonds). These ingredients are good for treating dry skin, acne and sun spots, and improving skin texture, reducing fine lines, and increasing skin thickness. The most effective alpha hydroxy acid is glycolic acid because it increases cell exfoliation and replacement, and reduces surface oils.
- Beta hydroxy acids are more effective in treating blemishes. Salicylic acid treats acne, dandruff, psoriasis, and dermatitis. This product is good for sensitive skin.
- Tretinoin ( Vitamin A acid, Retin-A, Renova ) treats acne and aging, sun damaged skin. This product can cause irritation within the first few days.
Exfoliants don’t necessarily have to be a facial or body scrub, they can also come in the form of cleansing accessories. The newest trend are the easy to use facial cleansing cloths that contain small fibers to gently exfoliate the face. Loofah sponges and exfoliation brushes in combination with your favorite cleanser also help exfoliate the skin. For rougher skin, such as the heels of your feet or elbows, an exfloliation brush is probably best.
