How To Exfoliate The Skin On Your Body

Written by Chandni GhoshOct 08, 2018
We’ve told you several times how using a scrub on your face is crucial to your beauty regime. But exfoliating the skin on your body is just as important. That’s primarily because it helps to get rid of dead skin buildup that often dulls down the skin, eventually making it look saggy and dehydrated. Besides removing bacteria and grime from your skin, exfoliating your body will also help moisturisers and lotions penetrate your skin better so your skin is soft and smooth at all times. Wondering how to exfoliate your skin on the body in the right way? Read on...

Brush your skin

Don’t forget to moisturise

Before you begin taking a shower, make sure you brush your skin dry with exfoliating gloves or a loofah. This will prep your skin for the scrubbing process later.


Wet your body

Don’t forget to moisturise

Next, wet your body from head to toe.


Choose your body wash

Don’t forget to moisturise

Use a body wash that mildly exfoliates your body. We suggest you go with the St Ives – Smoothing Apricot Body Wash that’s made with 100% natural moisturisers and exfoliants. It’s hypoallergenic and suits all skin types. The apricot in it scrubs away dull skin and leaves your skin smooth and healthy.


Scrub away impurities

Don’t forget to moisturise

Pour the body wash on a loofah and let it lather. Scrub your body including your hands and feet and then rinse off with lukewarm water. The result? Revitalised and glowing skin!

Once you’ve stepped out of the shower and your skin is dry, apply moisturiser generously on your body to keep your skin hydrated. We suggest you use the Vaseline Intensive Care Deep Restore Body Lotion that will nourish your skin, thanks to its Pure Oat Extract and Stratys 3 Multi-Layer Moisture. All you really need to do apply the lotion all over your body, specially focusing on areas like elbows , knees, hands and feet.
