How To Have Soft Skin

Whether you are looking to improve overall radiance or just in need of a moisture boost, searching for ways to achieve softer skin has become an increasingly popular inquiry. An important first step towards softer skin is to keep it properly moisturized. Moisturizers and hydrating formulas boost hydration to help soften and nourish skin while improving skin barrier function. A healthy skin barrier is essential because it provides protection and helps seal in moisture. Our skincare is scientifically formulated to help restore and strengthen the skin barrier and soften the appearance of skin. Say goodbye to dry, rough skin as we help you discover effective steps for softer, smoother skin!

Step 1

Use A Conditioning Cleanser With Cucumber Extract

Using a conditioning cleanser is a step in the right direction for obtaining softer skin. Look for formulas infused with Cucumber Extract to help soothe and cleanse without disrupting skin’s natural balance. Try an effective yet gentle face wash for dry and sensitive skin. Cucumber Herbal Conditioning Cleanser is a mild, daily cleansing oil that quickly transforms from a gel to a light, thin oil. Gentle enough for use on the eye area and formulated with Cucumber Extract and Glycerin to help soothe, calm, and soften skin!

Step 2

Try An Avocado Hydration Mask

Avocado and Avocado Fruit Extract are two powerful skincare ingredients that help seal in hydration and soften skin. This is why we recommend using a targeted face mask infused with both. Try a hydrating Avocado mask that leaves skin feeling soft, nourished, and replenished. Our Avocado Nourishing Hydration Mask is formulated with Avocado Fruit Extract, omega-rich Avocado Oil, and Evening Primrose Oil to nourish skin and help protect water loss by sealing in moisture. When rinsed away, Avocado Nourishing Hydration Mask transforms from a thick creamy texture to a soft, nourishing milk giving your skin a boost in hydration and softness!

Step 3

Help Plump Skin With A Hydrating Serum

One of the most effective ways to achieve softer-looking skin is to keep it properly hydrated. Dull, tired-looking skin needs moisture to help "plump" for a smoother, softer appearance. We recommend a hydrating serum infused with a potent complex of 15% Glycerin and Shiso Leaf Extract. Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate is formulated to help restore a more youthful-looking appearance and clinically-tested to smooth and plump skin while significantly reducing dullness that can be caused by age-related dehydration.

Step 4

Treat Eyes With An Avocado Eye Cream

Did you know that Avocado Oil is known to be the most moisturizing of any fruit oil? That’s why it’s important to help soften the eye area with a moisturizing eye treatment infused with Avocado Oil. We recommend a nourishing under eye cream formulated with Avocado Oil, Beta-Carotene, and Shea Butter that gives a burst of hydration upon application. Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado is a rich and creamy eye treatment that gently moisturizes the delicate eye area. Our formula is uniquely concentrated and does not migrate into eyes, so it's perfect for use under eye make-up for softer, smoother-looking skin!

Step 5

Soften Skin With A Skin Renewing Moisturizer

Our final softening step reinforces the impact of maintaining a strong skin barrier for a soft, healthy-looking glow! Try a face cream with 99.6% naturally-derived * ingredients that helps skin resist visible signs of aging. We recommend a skin-revitalizing moisturizer infused with New Zealand Manuka Honey, known to improve resistance to damage, and Korean Red Ginseng Root, known for renewal and vitality. Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream visibly renews skin for smoother texture and healthy radiance, leaving it revitalized, hydrated, and instantly soft!

* We consider an ingredient to be naturally-derived if it remains unchanged from its natural state or has undergone processing, yet still retains more than 50% of its molecular structure from its original natural source.
