Wondering how to get smooth skin on your face and body? Following some simple skincare tips can help you remedy the causes of rough skin and achieve the ultimate glow-up.
Our skin can feel dry for a variety of reasons. The main causes of rough skin are:
Harmful UV rays from the sun
Lack of hydration e.g. not drinking enough water
Cold weather during winter
Washing the skin too much e.g. frequent hand washing
To get beautifully smooth and naturally glowing skin, exfoliation is really important.
When you exfoliate, you remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin, reveal the natural, youthful glow of new skin cells underneath and stimulate skin regeneration. So if you want to avoid dry winter skin or get a natural glow for the summer, exfoliating from head to toe is one of the easiest things to do for perfectly smooth skin.
Braun’s simple skincare regime follows the natural steps towards smooth and glowing skin:
Gently remove hair by the root for up to four weeks of salon-smooth skin.
Buff away dead skin cells, for a youthful glow.
Try an intensive massage to stimulate blood circulation and to help improve skin texture.
Replace the body’s natural oils that were lost while removing hair and dead skin cells with a rich, pH balanced moisturiser to care for the skin.
1. Epilate so you can start hair-free
Use a gentle and efficient epilator, like Braun Silk-epil, to remove all your body hair by the root. With the hair gone, you’ll get smoother skin that lasts for up to 4 weeks.
Wait a few days before exfoliating to give your skin enough time to replenish its natural oils after epilating.

2. Exfoliate the skin
We exfoliate to remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. Skin exfoliation also helps to remove dirt and impurities, leaving space for new cells to breathe and develop healthily. If you want to get radiant, smooth skin, you can achieve amazing effects by regularly using an electronic exfoliator, like Braun SkinSpa. It comes with an easy-to-use exfoliating and cleansing brush which is up to 6x more effective than doing the same process by hand.

3. Massage your skin to improve blood circulation and skin texture
Massaging your skin after using your exfoliator helps to improve your blood circulation, which speeds along the process of skin regeneration and your road to glowing, vitalized skin. Massage also relaxes the muscles, leaving your skin feeling as rejuvenated as it will look!
The Braun Silk-epil Beauty Set also includes a massage pad for the skin with a deeper effect than a standard body brush. The sonic technology and intensive massage has a powerful effect and visibly helps to tone and improve skin texture.
Finally, cleanse your face and exfoliate your face for glowing skin from head to toe.
Your delicate facial skin deserves a special treatment. For pore-deep and gentle cleansing, use the Braun Face brush. This facial cleansing and exfoliator brush works up to 6x better* than manual cleansing. Your skin will be amazingly smooth and glowing with natural beauty after using this all-in-one exfoliator device.
After using your exfoliator brush, you can massage the face by using the Micro-Vibrator included in the Braun FaceSpa Pro set. This device delivers ultra-delicate, high-speed mini-vibrations to the face, helping to stimulate blood circulation and reduce the appearance of ageing. Find out how the Mico-Vibrator is inspired by the Japanese art of face tapping and how to use this device in your daily skincare regime.

4. Hydrate and moisturise your skin
When you’re finished exfoliating, remember to welcome your freshly surfaced skin cells with a nice application of moisturiser. Hydration is one of the most important parts of skincare – and your moisturised, glowing skin will thank you with silky-soft smoothness you can immediately see and feel!
Drinking water regularly throughout the day is also super important for keeping your skin happy and hydrated. We have millions of skin cells, which are mostly made up of water – and when lacking hydration, they can shrink, increasing the appearance of wrinkles and dryness. When we hydrate our skin, these cells plump up, creating the appearance of radiant, smooth skin on the face and body.
You can also keep your skin hydrated by following these skincare tips:
Regularly eat fresh fruits and vegetables that are rich in vitamins and water as part of a balanced diet. Why not try incorporating foods like cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, celery, watermelon, apples, oranges, and melon in your daily meals?
Wear sunscreen when your skin is exposed to the sun. This will prevent sunburn and dryness due to harmful UV rays while moisturising your skin gradually throughout the day.
Avoid harsh soaps or long, hot showers. This can irritate the skin and cause it to feel rough and dry. Showering with cold water once in a while is great for smooth skin as it increases blood circulation and encourages faster skin cell regeneration.
