HOW TO EXFOLIATE
Using an exfoliating body scrub is a pretty easy task to add to your existing skin care routine. Start by damping your face and or, body with water. Using a bit of body scrub product, apply light pressure onto the skin in a circular motion. Leave it on for a few minutes if it contains natural oils, so it can soak into your skin. Follow with a rinse off and pat dry. While the method of applying the product is simple, you do need to be aware of the following points below to avoid any issues:
Don’t apply too much pressure when using the exfoliating body scrub. More pressure does not lead to higher benefit. If you feel any sort of pain, you might be removing healthy tissue, which can leave your skin red and irritated.
Before applying the scrub to your body, soften your skin with warm to hot water beforehand. This will get your skin ready for exfoliation. If the water is too hot, you’ll probably end up drying out your skin.
Feel free to experiment! Exfoliating methods differs for every individual depending on skin type and level of sensitivity. If you have sensitive skin, start using an exfoliating body scrub first on a small patch of skin to see how the body reacts.
Also be sure to choose ingredients wisely or you may increase your risk of dryness and even breakouts.
