Exfoliation is often overlooked during a shower. Many times people wash their hair with a shampoo and cleanse their body with a shower wash, but forget that exfoliation is an important step to healthy skin. Throughout the day, the body accumulates dirt and other toxins that can lead to dead skin cells on the body. These particles can cause dry skin or can possibly lead to other skin problems if left alone. These dead skin cells can create a dull appearance on the outer layer of the skin. Exfoliation not only gets rid of these cells, but it also rids the body of other products that have built up on your skin. You need to clean off this layer of product buildup on your body so that it can rehydrate itself and continue to glow the next day. Exfoliation is the key to helping your skin remain smooth, fresh, and free of unwanted dryness.
It is important to take care of every part of your body when exfoliating in the shower. When using products on your face, you should be gentle, but apply enough force to rid the skin of the makeup and oil buildup. Even though the face is one of the most sensitive parts of the body, we need to care for it just like we would any other part of the body.
Using a sugar scrub is a great way to rid the body of dead skin cells on hands, feet, shoulders, back, arm and knees. With a little bit of pressure, use a wash cloth or your hand to massage the sugar scrub into your skin along your entire body so that it cleanses and exfoliates the skin to perfect glow. When exfoliating body parts where the skin is tougher, such as elbows, knees, and heels, it is perfectly fine to use little bit more pressure when applying the scrub. These areas are known to be dryer and rougher than other parts of the body. After using a sugar scrub on these areas, a moisturizer will help heal the affected areas. Tree Hut Shea Moisturizing Lotion or Shea Body Butter will help bring vibrancy back into your skin. This will help the skin remain softer and help to prevent cracking.
If you do not remove the extra oils and dirt from your skin daily, it’s possible that you will begin to experience breakouts from clogged pores. Buildup of dirt can irritate and clog the skin, which causes these blemishes. Using these exfoliation tips on the body will help prevent breakouts from occurring. Continuing to remove the dead skin cells will keep the skin looking fresh and smooth. It is easy to take care of your skin so be sure to take an extra few minutes to scrub down your entire body after a long day so that your skin can stay sharp and vibrant for the next day ahead of you.Tweet
