Soft hair, soft skin – both are things that most of us want and unless you’re really lucky, they don’t often come naturally. There are, fortunately for us, plenty of products which can help us to achieve softness in various area, you just have to know which products to use, and where. We’ve curated a list of five amazing products to help you to soften yourself, the Pure Beauty way.
Oils are great for softening the skin and hair, especially when they’re dry oils which don’t leave a greasy residue. This softening dry oil from Decleor contains frankincense, camellia, rose and sweet almond oils, which combine to leave your body and face feeling softer and more comfortable, your hair nourished and looking shiny.
Proper hydration is the key to soft, smooth skin, and this body cream from Elemis is designed to deeply hydrate. It’s based on extracts of sea lavender and samphire with nourishing macadamia oil, high in natural fatty acids and oat, known for its calming and soothing properties to deeply condition and hydrate the skin, leaving it beautifully soft and delicately fragranced.
Unless you’re someone who goes for regular mancures, there’s a good chance that your cuticles are neglected and tatty. The cuticles can be tamed and even removed, but you need to soften them first, to avoid damaging the skin around the nail. This oil from Nailtiques comes with a convenient rollerball applicator and instantly softens cuticles and sealing in moisture.
Softening the skin isn’t just for the ladies – chaps can benefit from softening products too, especially to aid with shaving. This serum from Decleor can be used both before and after shaving and is designed to help to soften the skin and hair so that less irritation occurs and a closer shave is achieved. It can also help to prevent ingrown hairs.
Who doesn’t want softer skin from head to toe? This super hydrating body cream from Dermalogica is designed to give the whole body a wash of moisture, using hydroxy acids from sugar cane and apple combined with lactic acid to smooth and relieve skin dryness. It contains botanical extracts and essential oils which leave the skin feeling supple and soft.
