A COMPACT GUIDE TO BODY EXFOLIATION FOR A RADIANT GLOW
Follow this simple step-by-step guide to exfoliation and enjoy beautiful skin in no time!
Body exfoliation is a great (and some would say, essential) way to get your skin glowing with health. Dead skin cells naturally build up on the top layers of skin, which can leave your skin looking dull and lifeless. Exfoliation removes these dead cells, revealing the new and healthy skin hidden underneath.
Dry and wet body exfoliation
Successful body exfoliation involves two sorts of exfoliation: dry and wet.
Rinsing and moisturising
Once you have massaged the entire body with your body scrub, rinse thoroughly to remove the dislodged dead skin cells. You can use a body wash at this stage, which will continue to gently remove the dead skin cells. If possible, rinse with alternately warm and cool water to boost circulation to the skin and get your blood pumping.
Now you can relax, let the body cream do its magic and get ready to show off your beautiful, radiant skin!
Start your exfoliation session by using a dry brush to brush your (still dry) skin. Start from the feet and work your way up and all over the body. Use short and light strokes of the brush, being firm without using too much pressure that may damage or irritate the healthy skin underneath.
Following the body brush, get into the bath or shower to wet the skin and rinse off the cells dislodged by the first full body exfoliation stage. Warm water will open the pores and make the second round of exfoliation easier.
Then, for the wet exfoliation stage, use exfoliation gloves or a loofah to apply body scrub to the skin.
