HOW TO EXFOLIATE YOUR BODY

By Sam Higgins, June 22, 2017

It's often easy to focus your grooming game solely around your face, when really your whole body can benefit from a bit of TLC. What’s more, you don’t need to buy a load of complicated products to do it — so, here’s how to create a simple body exfoliator at home.
To make your own scrub:
1. Mix 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of oil until well blended.
2. Add 10 to 15 drops of essential oil for fragrance, if desired.

 

Process:
1. Put on exfoliating gloves.
2. Get in the shower and wet your entire body.
3. Apply exfoliating cleanser to gloves and scrub your body in a circular motion, starting with the bottoms of your feet and working upwards.
5. Use a body brush to exfoliate your back and other hard-to-reach places.
6. Don’t forget your hands!
7. Rinse your body with lukewarm water, and follow with the coldest water you can stand.
8. After stepping out the shower, apply a moisturizing body lotion all over. Body lotions and facial moisturizers containing alpha or beta hydroxy acids are ideal choices as these acids continue to remove dead skin cells.
