Dry Brushing is the best way to Exfoliate!
Dry, scaly skin is not on anyone’s list for the holidays! Exfoliating at least 3-5 times a week can get rid of dry skin and improve it’s texture. Exfoliating is so important to get rid of all dry dead skin cells that look flaky and dull and that are covering the new skin cells. Getting rid of the dry skin will promote healthier smoother looking skin.
Exfoliating the skin on your face is a tricky thing. Daily exfoliating is helpful but you need to be very gentle. Just using a wash cloth with your cleanser can be enough. Some like a facial brush and the Clarisonic brush is very popular. Using a finely grained scrub will do the trick.
As for the skin on your body there are lots of choices. A wash cloth and body scrub used regularly do the trick. It’s really important to be consistent with scrubbing your body. You won’t see a lot of benefits unless you’re dedicated to a good schedule.
A loofah sponge is amazing. A loofah in the shower is great but the benefits are many when used on your dry skin before you get in the shower! This is called “dry brushing”. Dry Brushing is the best way to exfoliate! You start at your feet and work your way up to your heart. You do the top half of your body and arms all coming toward your heart. This removes dead skin cells and helps to stimulate blood circulation. My friend is sure that her skin is smoother and the cellulite on her legs has diminished. Once in the shower, a light scrub will get all the extra dead skin off and leave you silky smooth. I have noticed a big improvement in my skin but I’m not very consistent. I remember too late when I’m already in the shower.
Always use a hydrating lotion on your face and body after exfoliating. Once your skin is clean from bad cells your skin care products will perform better and you will be silky smooth!
