If you’ve ever tried exfoliation, you would probably agree it’s a simple way to quickly improve the appearance of dry skin. Whether you are using a loofah or sugar scrub, you want it to be gentle. Here are a few things you can do for a better exfoliating experience.
1. Test your scrubs. Texture is key, the scrub should be abrasive enough to remove dry skin. Avoid products that are harsh on the skin. They can leave your skin bruised, scratched, and raw. To test the gentleness of an exfoliating product apply a sample on the back of your hand and rub gently.
While I recovered from eczema scars, I needed something that would lift dry patches without damaging my healing skin. This is why Sénica’s brown sugar scrubs use a finer grain of sugar that is gentler on the skin.
2. Moisturize after you exfoliate. Now that you’ve removed the dead skin, you need to pamper and protect the newly revealed skin. A rich butter-based moisturizer, lotion, or body oil can nourish the skin cells and help you keep your natural glow longer.
Exfoliating and moisturizing go hand in hand. Use a scrub and follow up with a moisturizer for a better exfoliation experience.
3. Don’t overdo it! Exfoliating once a week is more than enough. Over exfoliating can result in dryness and damaged skin.
4. Try dry brushing. Dry brushing is a method used to exfoliate the skin using a natural bristle brush or fiber like hemp. Dry brushing is good option to use between sugar scrub exfoliation. Learn more here, http://bit.ly/15VJhhe.
