Have an amazing spring break trip planned for February, March, or April? It’s time to start prepping your skin now! Even if you won’t be lying poolside any time soon, it’s never to early to get your skin in great shape. Here are three simple tips to to acheive smooth, healthy skin
1. Moisturize daily
. The best time to moisturize is after you get out of the shower, so keep a bottle of body lotion in the bathroom. We love Aveeno Active Naturals Postively Nourishing 24 Hour Body Moisturizer
($9.99 at drugstore.com
) because it smells great and doesn’t feel greasy after you apply.
2. Exfoliate weekly
. Exfoliating removes dead skin cells to reveal brighter, smoother skin underneath! It also preps skin for a closer shave. Cake Milk Made Body Smoothing White Sugar Scrub
($30 at Sephora
) is great for this purpose because it nourishes legs with milk, butter, and oil while sloughing off dry skin with sugar.
3. Shower smart. Great skin starts in the shower. Avoid super hot water, which will cause dryness. And when you towel off, pat skin dry instead of rubbing vigorously!
