Smooth skin goals. Sometimes they can feel unattainable. Beauty editors talk about skin that feels soft to the touch, or faces that look dewy and well-cared-for—almost in defiance of age. We all want smooth skin. But with so many products and routines out there, how do you know what is the right way for you to wrangle your dry, sensitive skin?
We all want it, but what is it? Smooth skin appears healthy from the inside out–because it is! It’s firm and well hydrated–not rough, dry or tight. It has minimal appearance of redness, spots or wrinkles. Smooth skin also means consistency: softness across your forehead, cheeks and chin.
What if you could wake up to smooth skin? Every day? With the right skincare routine at night, you can. At bedtime, you probably have a little more time to dedicate to your skin so, this is the perfect time for your smooth skin routine. So what’s the routine?
In studying centuries of Japanese skincare rituals and modern ceramide science, our skincare experts have developed a double-cleansing and double-moisturizing routine that promotes soft and smooth skin that is deeply hydrated. This two step process cleanses and preps your skin first, then deeply moisturizes.
Double cleansing is a Japanese two-step cleansing method using two different types of cleansers, one after the other. The first oil-based cleanser dissolves makeup and sebum, while the second water-based cleanser washes away anything that’s left over.
Curél cleansers have been developed specifically for dry, sensitive skin, to cleanse without stripping the moisture you need for healthy-looking, hydrated skin.

Double moisturizing is the traditional two step moisturizing process uniquely practiced by women in Japan.
In the first step, a softening lotion preps the skin to better absorb the moisturizer, enhancing its benefits. This is followed in step two: rich, yet light feeling moisturization.

After your night-time routine and a full night’s rest, it’s time to wake up to beautifully smooth skin! So what happened? As you slept, your skin had several hours to absorb the hydrating moisturizer.
Enjoy the results of looking after your skin.
