Petal skin is exactly what it sounds like: skin so soft and velvety that it mimics the look and feel of a flower petal. But how do you actually score that slightly satiny, unbelievably soft aesthetic? With a top-notch skincare routine, of course. Now that we’ve got that covered, keep reading for the skinny on how to get petal skin in five simple steps.

Step 1: Exfoliate

First things first, you’ll want to exfoliate your skin to prepare it for hydration. This will not only remove excess dead skin — leading to a smoother, brighter appearance — but will also help boost the effectiveness of your other products. Fresh’s best-selling Sugar Face Polish Exfoliator works to gently buff away dead skin cells while simultaneously nourishing skin thanks to a synergistic blend of brown sugar, wild strawberries (which aid in brightening), as well as plum seed and grapeseed oils. Simply apply a generous amount three to four times a week (depending on your skin’s sensitivity level) and let it sit on the skin for five to ten minutes to work its magic before rinsing off with tepid water.

Step 2: Essence

Once you’ve exfoliated, it’s time to flood your skin with hydration — starting with a facial essence, which deeply penetrates the skin and delivers specific benefits, such as smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles. Our Kombucha Antioxidant Facial Treatment Essence features double fermented kombucha — which is loaded with powerful antioxidants that aid in protecting and repairing the skin — as well as hyaluronic acid and artemisia flower for their hydrating and skin tone-improving properties. Pat a dime-sized amount onto the skin while it’s still slightly damp to instantly boost hydration and the efficacy of your full routine.

Step 3: Serum

Next up, it’s serum time. Our Rose Deep Hydration Oil-Infused Serum nourishes and softens skin, leaving it plump and radiant thanks to squalane, rosehip oil, damask rose extract, and rosewater. Together, they deliver intense, soothing hydration, which strengthens the skin barrier, leading to healthier skin over time.

Step 4: Emulsion

An emulsion is an excellent product to add to your routine if you’re looking for supreme hydration and help with balancing your skin’s oil-to-water ratio. Our new Rose Deep Hydration Balancing Emulsion is a milky, skin-balancing elixir made with damask rose extract, hyaluronic acid, and yarrow extract. It feels featherlight on the skin and helps to seal in hydration so skin stays comfortable, soft, and smooth.

Step 4: Moisturizer and/or Overnight Face Mask

Finally, lock everything in with a heavy-duty moisturizer (if your skin type can handle it, that is) or a lightweight overnight mask. Our Floral Recovery Calming Mask leaves skin soothed, clear, and supple, while our Black Tea Peptide Firming Overnight Mask softens and tightens skin while you snooze so that you wake up looking well-rested and radiant. Moisturizer-wise, the Rose & Hyaluronic Acid Deep Hydration Moisturizer is an excellent fast-absorbing option for all skin types.
