Body Exfoliation- Essential in Winter

Skin feeling more like sandpaper? Got the itchies? Cold weather, heavy clothing, and dry heating can take a toll on more than just your face. All of your skin can feel it. Doing a full-body exfoliation each week will leave your skin with a much more youthful glow and help eliminate those dry patches and ugly little skin bumps. Below are step-by-step instructions to get the most benefit from your efforts.
  • Apply oil to skin.
  • Cover all skin lightly with oil like Earthly Body Hemp Seed Glow Oil which is a spray so it's easy to cover hard to reach places. Moroccanoil's Dry Body Oil is also a good one.
  • Take a dry brush to skin from the feet up, brushing in short, light strokes. Yes, that long-handled, soft-bristled brush that comes with bath sets and hangs in your shower actually has a function. Just don't hang it in the shower...use it dry.
  • Step in the shower and, using a body scrub, start at the feet again and massage the skin in a circular motion on up the body.
  • Rinse off using lukewarm water, then apply a salicylic acid body wash to skin paying more attention to heels, elbows, and knees. If you have a tendency towards back and butt acne, make sure to apply there as well.
  • Pat skin dry and apply your favorite moisturizer while skin is slightly damp.
