Exfoliating tips for a Smooth Skin

Exfoliating is a necessary part of your beauty regime to ensure that you have a smooth skin and keep it like that. We have all agonized over dry, scaly skin at some point in our life and suffered especially from those dry, icy, winter winds that can quite often leave us feeling extremely dehydrated and depleted.

We’re told to take care of and spend time concentrating on protecting our face that we often forget about the rest of our body. We don’t discount the importance of looking after your face but exfoliating your body is just as important to feeling incredible and rejuvenated. How often do you forget about those areas such as elbows, knees, heels and ankles that tend to really dry up during winter months? Anytime is the right time. Exfoliating can be done at any time of the year, when you begin to feel the effects of those dry, rough patches beginning to take form. It may even be a good idea to exfoliate twice a week, or at least once a week.

When considering what type of scrub to buy, what are the best ingredients or over the counter scrubs to use? It depends entirely on personal preference but most often than not, you are more than likely to find many ingredients in your home that are natural and much better for you.  It can be more cost effective to make your own home-made scrub and the beauty of this is you know exactly what ingredients your product contains.
