Buff Your Worries Away With Our Chocolate Body Scrubs
#1 Dry Brush First.
Before exfoliating, it’s always a good idea to use a dry brush. It helps loosen dead skin cells and prepare your body for the exfoliating process. This will lead to better results in the long run.
#2 Get Wet.
It may go without saying, but it’s amazing how often people get into exfoliating without letting the body get totally soaked. Give yourself a good minute in the shower to get saturated before you get started.
#3 Use a Loofah or Gloves.
The right tools are essential for good results, so choose a high-quality loofah or gloves designated for exfoliating.
#4 Rub in a Circular Motion.
A circular motion exfoliates effectively without being too rough on the body. Wherever possible, opt for this approach over the more aggressive back and forth scrubbing motion. This approach can often do more harm than good, particularly to sensitive skin. Speaking of that sensitive skin, the bikini line and the face are areas you want to go easy on with a body scrub. In fact, it might be best to choose a separate exfoliating product that’s designated for your face rather than choosing a body scrub, which are typically more aggressive. Then, once you’re all exfoliated, you can simply rinse off with luke-warm water. Follow it with cold water to prepare your skin for moisturizer once you step out of the shower.
