Get Soft Now Try this routine to brighten dull skin: Mix 1/2 cup white sugar (it melts quickly and doesn't sting) with 1/2 cup olive oil. Then sit in a warm bath for a couple of minutes before you rub a handful of the scrub all over your legs and rinse. "Soaking first breaks up the bonds of dead cells so they fall off more easily," says Cheryl Karcher, MD, an Avon consulting dermatologist.
Stay Smooth Forever In the shower, use a cream-based cleanser that contains hydrating petrolatum, such as Dove Cream Oil Body Wash with NutriumMoisture ($4.49, drugstores). Afterward, apply a lotion with glycerin, such as Johnson's Body Care 24 Hour Body Lotion ($3.99, drugstores), to damp skin. Warm the bottle in a sink full of hot water while you bathe. "You'll be able to massage the lotion in easily, plus the warmth helps it be absorbed more readily," says Donna Perillo, owner of Sweet Lily Natural Nail Spa & Boutique in New York City.
