Approximately every three weeks, new skin cells push up from the lowest layers
of the epidermis and move towards the surface changing shape as they go.
Exfoliation helps this process by giving the dead skin cells a push.
By exfoliating and shedding the dead skin cells, you are making room
for the lower layers of newer skin. This newer skin allows moisture
to penetrate the skin more easily which leaves the skin feeling
plumper and fresher.
Starting at the soles of your feet and working your way up your body,
brush off any dry skin with a loofah or a body exfoliating brush.
Do this before bathing or showering.
Once your body is thoroughly wet, apply some exfoliating cleanser
to your loofah or exfoliating brush.
Scrub your body with it, using gentle, circular motions.
Opt for grainy types of cleansers to clean the skin, rather than soap.
The grainy texture exfoliates the skin better taking off all dry skin.
Rub rough spots, such as heels, with a rough stone/pebble.
Regular exfoliating is extremely drying to the skin and will do more harm
than good unless the skin is re-hydrated with lotions.
Apply moisturiser to your body before it is fully dry. Use a body moisturiser
at least once every day.
