Ever since I started having skincare problems as a teenager the one thing I’ve wanted to achieve was soft skin. There’s nothing worse than having dry patches on your skin and today I’m going to share my essentials from one of my favourite brands, Lush, that will give you soft skin all over!
Choosing the right kind of scrub plays a big part in achieving soft skin as you need to get rid of that dead layer before you are able to treat the skin beneath. My go-to body scrub from Lush is The Rough With the Smooth*. My skin can get extremely dry, especially during Winter, and a lot of scrubs don’t necessarily make a difference. As the name suggests, Rough With the Smooth is more of an intense scrub and it will leave you with an extremely smooth canvas to put your moisturiser on.
On the days I exfoliate I like to apply Ro’s Argan body conditioner* whilst still in the shower to make sure all the moisture is locked in. During the warmer months the body conditioners work wonderfully on their own but when it’s cold I like to use a body lotion for added moisture. My current favourite is Once Upon a Time* from the Holiday collection, but I find that all of the Lush body lotions are equally moisturising, some of them just have other qualities as well and of course, the scents are different.
You shouldn’t forget to give your hands some TLC as well which is why Lemony Flutter has become one of my bedside beauty must-haves. It’s perfect for the roughest part of skin like elbows as well but I mainly use it for my hands, especially cuticles and you only need the tiniest amount because it’s so thick. With an incredible mix of different oils and butters plus purifying lemon infusion, this is bound to give you soft skin!
When it comes to face scrubs, I tend to reach for Cup O’ Coffee which is a mask so you basically get two in one! Not only is it an amazing exfoliator but just by using this your face is already left feeling incredibly soft and smooth. Plus, if you love coffee or just the scent of it, even the experience of using this feels like heaven.
For my face, I use the richest moisturiser Lush has to offer which is Skin Drink. It’s absolutely perfect for the cold weather and an amazing everyday moisturiser especially if your skin is dry. This is probably too heavy for anyone with oily skin but I’d still recommend it as a restoring and hydrating mask. I’ve also written a full review on this which you can read here.
Last but not least, another bedside beauty must-have and one of my personal favourites, lip scrub. Not only do the Lush lip scrubs give you the most soft and kissable lips but they also taste great! I’m currently using the Chocolate one which has actual dark chocolate in it, talk about a skincare treat!
