How to get smooth skin with Ameliorate

How to get smooth skin with Ameliorate

The cult bodycare brand Ameliorate has just launched at lookfantastic, and we couldn’t be more excited! Entering into autumn (and the colder months), means that we need extra skin nourishment, and no brand achieves this better than them. We are looking at how to get smooth skin, with a selection of the brand’s bestselling products.

Who are Ameliorate?

A bodycare brand specialising in targeted skincare products, Ameliorate started when founder Annette wanted to find a solution for her keratosis pilaris.

As the UK’s first dermatological skincare brand, Annette and a team of specialists worked together to create a range of products that would get rid of KP, otherwise known as chicken skin, and give super smooth and long-lasting results.

The result was a brand that became the go-to for anyone with problem skin on their bodies. Today, their Transforming Body Lotion is one of the bestselling bodycare products, and despite the fact that it’s a targeted solution for a skin problem, feels beautiful to use.

What is keratosis pilaris?

Otherwise known as KP or chicken skin, keratosis pilaris is a harmless skin condition which causes bumps and redness.

Usually appearing on the back of the arms, KP is caused when your skin produces too much keratin, which causes a build-up inside the hair follicles and appears as raised bumps.

Ameliorate helps to reduce the appearance of keratosis pilaris by actively working to keeping the skin smooth and soft and free from clogged follicles.

How to get smooth skin in 3 easy steps

Step 1: Wash

Firstly, start off by washing your body. The Ameliorate Nourishing Body Wash combines the brands unique LaH6 Skin Hydration Complex, with camellia and starflower oils, alongside omega fatty acids to soften the skin and prevent build-up.

Step 2: Exfoliate

The key to smooth skin is regular exfoliation, and the power duo from Ameliorate work wonders together.

Apply a small amount of the Ameliorate Smoothing Body Exfoliant with the Exfoliating Body Mitt and buff into wet skin.

The Body Exfoliant contains biodegradable bamboo granules and lactic acid, which provide gentle yet effective chemical exfoliation to remove dead skin cells and ingrown hairs. Cocoa and shea butters help to soothe and keep skin super soft and hydrated.

The Body Mitt has been carefully crafted from a unique fabric weave, which although is gentler than a regular loofah, helps to unblock hair follicles.

Step 3: Moisturise

The final step in how to get smooth skin is through hydration.

The Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion is one of the brand’s bestselling products, and it’s little wonder why once you’ve tried it.

Made with lactic and alpha hydroxy acids, the lotion melts into the skin and helps to sweep away dead skin cells and resurface bumpy skin. At the same time, sweet almond oil nourishes and hydrates to lock in moisture and keep the skin healthy and soft.
