We can all appreciate something smooth. Whether it’s a smooth pick-up line, smooth iced coffee, or smooth skin, our senses are left feeling happy and comforted while our confidence gets an extra boost.
Our bodies are ever-changing, but our confidence shouldn’t be. What many people don’t talk about is how achieving smooth skin can be tiresome, time-consuming, and stressful. However, this doesn’t need to be the case!
Unfortunately, many insecurities are deep-rooted in the appearance of our skin. Many things can minimize our confidence. Whether your insecurities are something you are learning to accept as beautiful or something you want to combat, we get how you feel. There is nothing worse than waking up and not being comfortable with yourself.
Blackheads, whiteheads, clogged pores, and dirt-build up are all things we experience to some degree. While it may take a magnifying mirror to notice these, they are something that many of us try to minimize in our daily lives. These little skin imperfections we experience are completely normal, and while we may not notice them on others, we sure do take note when they show up on our faces.
Unwanted stubborn hair is also something that many of us deal with that can minimize our confidence. With summer around the corner, we must have the chance to feel comfortable wearing clothes that may show our arms or our backs. This hair is a natural occurrence, but maintaining smooth skin by removing this hair is very common and highly desired by many.
As we get older, wrinkles are a major insecurity that many of us grapple with in our lives. They are something that we all try to get ahead of early on, whether it’s by wearing sunscreen or making sure to use products that support the health of our skin. Wrinkles are natural, just like the other physical attributes we deem to be imperfections.
As a result, while you may be determined to climb it, achieving smooth skin can be an uphill battle filled with many obstacles. You may fall once or twice along the way and may feel discouraged to continue. Although, this means when you get to the top and reach your goal, your confidence could skyrocket. Once we feel comfortable in the skin we’re in, our confidence gets that extra boost.
Ways to Achieve Smooth Skin at Home
Supporting smooth skin is a great way to gain or build confidence. Although, achieving smooth skin can be a daunting task. You may be nervous or embarrassed about your skin, such as when going to the salon, despite others around you struggling with similar insecurities.
The good news is, there is no need to be nervous or embarrassed to leave your house to achieve smooth skin because you can now do this from the comfort of your own home.
Hair removal is a great way to support smooth skin at home. Many people think that hair removal is the painful part of the daunting fight to achieve smooth skin when in reality, it doesn’t need to hurt. There are many common methods of hair removal that you may have already tested out.
Shaving is very common. This hair removal method may be one that your mom introduced you to after an awkward conversation or two when you were younger. Shaving is the process of cutting off your hair close to the skin. Unfortunately, shaving can cause irritation in the form of razor burn for many people. Plenty of people also find that shaving does not prevent hair from growing back just as quickly as before.
Waxing is another common hair removal method that people often lean towards as they get a bit older. Using a sticky substance, waxing removes hair from the root. The sticky wax covers and pulls the hair out from the follicle to leave your skin smooth.
The catch with waxing is that it is not pain-free. Depending on the person, waxing can also result in skin irritation and ingrown hairs. Another similar form of hair removal is sugaring.
Hair Removal Cream
People also remove their unwanted hair with a hair removal cream. Often these creams don’t smell great, and they aren’t the best for your more sensitive areas.
IPL Hair Removal Handset
IPL hair removal is a method of hair removal that many people find supports smooth skin. It doesn’t result in razor burn or ingrown hairs. What is amazing about the KENZZI IPL Hair Removal Handset is that you can use it on any body part. This means you don’t need to worry about your sensitive areas, as this handset can be used on your face and Brazilian.
While you will not see immediate results such as shaving, the handset is designed to deliver results in three to four weeks and will last longer. We understand that everyone is different, which is why the handset has five different power settings so that you can use this hair removal method at your personal comfort level.
IPL vs. Laser
Many people compare IPL hair removal to laser hair treatment. The two have the same end goal: reduce hair growth. Although one major difference between the two is the size of the wavelength spectrum used to target specific areas.
Laser hair removal is great for targeting smaller, more specific areas as it uses a single-spectrum wavelength. This targets the hair follicle, the pigment in the skin, to reduce hair growth. People often use laser for acne scarring or smaller areas of hair.
IPL, on the other hand, uses light energy with a multi-spectrum wavelength. This is extremely helpful when it comes to your legs and arms as there is a larger surface area that you’ll want to cover.
There is debatably nothing better than having an at-home spa day. Washing your face and doing a DIY face mask are great ways to keep up with smooth skin.
We all wish smooth skin would happen overnight, but we all know it is something we must continue to work towards. Finding the right face products is a perfect place to start. It’s important to be aware that everyone’s skin is different and requires different love and attention. You may be able to find these products yourself or with some help from a professional (such as a dermatologist or esthetician).
Although, spending lots of time with and money on a dermatologist or at a spa or salon can be exhausting. This is why we recommend easy at-home treatments that help support smooth skin.
While the long name sounds intimidating, microdermabrasion is super simple. The best part? You can do this at home! The KENZZI Microdermabrasion Handset is an at-home system that utilizes diamond-encrusted heads to exfoliate your face. This is an expert way to help eliminate dead skin cells and other skin impurities you may be noticing.
Benefits of Microdermabrasion
There are many benefits to microdermabrasion, such as promoting an even skin tone, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, and its ability to fight acne and reduce acne scars. It even helps clean and then shrink pores, which helps improve the absorption of your favorite skincare products.
Not only does microdermabrasion help remove impurities, but it also helps to stimulate the skin. This is extremely important as it helps to promote blood circulation, which supports skin tissue development and your natural production of collagen.
Microdermabrasion vs. Dermabrasion
You may have discussed dermabrasion with your dermatologist. It’s essential to understand the similarities and differences between dermabrasion and microdermabrasion. Dermabrasion has been known to be more invasive as it removes the top layer of your skin. It is often recommended for people with scarring with lighter skin tones. Microdermabrasion, on the contrary, supports most skin tones and is less invasive in comparison.
Achieving smooth skin, in general, used to be considered an arduous journey that no one ever looked forward to when they woke up in the morning or went to bed at night. However, the path to smooth skin is no longer a miserable trek. It’s more of a walk in the park or even just a walk to your bathroom.
