Want Perfectly Soft Skin Everywhere? Here's How
Look no further than our 7 steps to silky-smooth skin.
Picture this: you’re getting ready for a night out on the town, dressed to impress, feeling good, looking good, smelling good, all in check. As you’re about to step out, you look yourself up and down in the mirror, approving what you see (total smokeshow, btw) until… by golly, those knees! How could you have overlooked this? Talk about ashy. It just ruins the whole look. And slapping some cream over that won’t do much for very long, huh.
But don’t fret, babe. This is totally preventable, if only you vow to take the necessary measures to be primed and moisturized 24/7, overlooking no crevice— and we mean that— on the journey to becoming your best, silkiest self. Here are our favorite products to have every inch of you feeling, and looking, smooth as a baby’s bum all day, every day.
The Body Shop Bath Gloves
Step one: exfoliate. Exfoliating bath gloves are the easiest thing you can do to make sure you’re dealing with those dead skin cells daily. Just put them on, slap a generous dollop of body wash on there, and soap yourself up! Not only does it create the most satisfying lather, but it also helps you get everywhere that needs cleaning.

Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash
Step two: body wash. Technically this goes hand-in-hand with step one, but we can’t skip over its importance. When it comes to keeping moisturized, there’s nothing worse than a body wash that will strip you of all your moisture along with the grime of the day. Thankfully, this Dove body wash keeps your skin’s hydration in mind. Trust us, this one will give you the softest skin you’ve experienced.

L’Occitane Cleansing And Softening Shower Oil With Almond Oil
Step three: oil. This is optional, but if you want to step up your game and have a more luxurious bathing experience, oil is the way to go. There are several ways to go about it, but our favorite is this shower oil with almond extract. Apply on its own or mix in with your regular body wash and bask in the heavenly aroma and soothing texture.

Step four: shave. Again, very optional, but hear us out— there is nothing better than the feeling of a smooth-shaven leg. Which lasts approximately a day and a half before leg-stubble kicks in, but still. Shaving is that extra step to take when you want to feel dolphin-smooth, you know?

Step five: condition. Lush’s miraculous Scrubee is made with cocoa butter, honey, and ground almonds, making it the remedy to all of your dry skin’s needs. Not an everyday thing, but use it as the last step to your shower routine, and notice your skin turn to velvet. We swear by it.

Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Body Lotion
Step six: lotion. Never forget lotion. Although all the previous steps will guarantee the smooth skin you want, you can never be too careful. Lock in all that moisture with a trustee lotion. With ingredients such as Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, and Petrolatum, Vaseline can’t fail you.

Fur Ingrown Concentrate
Step seven: more oil! But this time for down there, if you know what we mean. Aren’t you tired of ingrown hairs? Pesty little things they are, always getting in the way of smooth skin. Well, most of the time the issue is a lack of moisture—that’s where Fur steps in, for all of your ingrown needs. Apply after every shave or wax of your pubes (armpits too) and use as needed for the rest of the week. Instant results.
