Exfoliation is an essential skincare step if you want to achieve soft, supple and glowing skin. But when we say exfoliation, we don’t only mean the skin on your face, but your entire body — yes, really! Doing so not only eliminates dead skin cells but also majorly improves the texture of your skin.

From dry brushing to using DIY body scrubs, there a number of ways to exfoliate your body, but our personal favourite method has to be body polishing. A method that gained popularity only recently, a body polish helps remove dead skin cells, while effectively massaging your skin to improve blood circulation. The result? Smooth, supple and baby-soft skin within minutes.

But that’s not all! Ahead, we have listed down four incredible benefits of adding a body polish to your body care routine…

 

01. Buffs away dead skin cells

An accumulation of dead skin cells and impurities can clog your pores and give your skin a super dull and lacklustre look. Using a gentle body polish gets rid of all the build-up to give you super soft skin post each use.

 

02. Brightens skin

Accumulation of dead skin cells and prolonged exposure to UV rays can make the skin on your body appear dull and pigmented. But this issue can be easily tackled by including a brightening body polish such as the Dove Exfoliating Kiwi Seeds and Cool Aloe Body Polish in your body care routine. Enriched with kiwi seeds and aloe vera, this body polish helps brighten the skin and provides intense moisturisation.

 

03. Hydrates skin

The creamy formula of a body polish delivers essential moisture to your skin while scrubbing away dead skin cells. Most body polishes are infused with essential oils and other moisturising agents to prevent stripping your skin of unnecessary moisture. Additionally, since exfoliation unclogs pores, it helps your moisturiser sink into your skin and deliver better hydration.

 

04. Rejuvenates and refreshes skin

Constant exposure to dirt, pollution, UV rays and other impurities can leave your skin looking seriously lifeless. But using a body polish once a week helps slough away all the impurities to instantly revive and rejuvenate your skin. This helps in revitalising dull skin to make it look soft and glowing.
