Ways To Exfoliate Your Body

Saturday 3 March 2012

In colder weather it is easy to forget to exfoliate your body. When 99% of your body is covered up, it can seem pointless to exfoliate when no one (even including yourself) will see it!

Here are various ways you can still exfoliate, even in the colder months...

Scrubs can be fantastic. Not only are there many types available, they come in the nicest fragrances!! Another great thing is that there are soft and small granule body scrubs that also moisturise or thicker grainier ones that really get rid of dead skin. Sugar scrubs are great if your skin is more delicate, while salt scrubs are better for drier, thicker skin. The downside is that they can be a bit pricey.

Body brush
Body brushes are great for when you want a deep scrub. They can feel quite rough and uncomfortable for the first week. Always start off slowly and gently and work up to a rougher scrub. For best results, use dry. The great thing is that it stimulates the Lymph nodes (they are apart of the immune system) and helps blood circulation. Always brush towards your heart.

Exfoliating gloves
This is my favourite way to exfoliate. I can use it everyday without being too harsh on my skin. I apply a bodywash and rub it in to the gloves so it bubbles. The only downside to this is you need to remember to clean your gloves and regularly replace them.

Loofah or loofah mitt
These are also a cheap and easy way to exfoliate. Like the gloves, they need to be washed at least once a week. They are good for people with sensitive skin that don't like granules. Since you can use the loofah with your body cleanser, it can be more moisturising and softer than other types of exfoliants.
