Skin softening is one of the most important things you can do to prevent those unwanted lines and wrinkles that come with aging. Keeping the skin tone soft and elastic comes from great care and proper nurturing. It is very important to drink plenty of water to keep the skin over all the body well-hydrated. Typical recommendations are for the average person to consume six to eight glasses of water per day.

Other skin softening methods that are great to do include having a facial. This is a process that can be done at a spa or at home with all the right ingredients. If you do this at home, there are prepared masks that can be put on the face and neck after the proper cleansing and then just sit back, relax, and let the pack do its job.

More Skin Softening Techniques

More drastic measures to soften the skin include procedures such as dermabrasion, which actually "sands" off the top layer of skin allowing a fresh layer of skin to take over. This is done with an abrasive that is used on skin that has been numbed by a topical anesthetic or freeze spray. The results are not final until the new surface completely heals from the abrasion.

Laser resurfacing is also an effective skin softening procedure. It is another way to remove the top layer of skin that has become dry, wrinkled, and perhaps even discolored. There are many methods to choose from. The important thing is that once you get the look that you desire, it is vital to take great care to nurture and maintain the soft texture. Pamper yourself and take that trip to the spa occasionally.
