Exfoliation removes dead skin cells, leaving your skin radiant and smooth. Whether it’s summer time or you just want soft, clean skin, exfoliating your skin from head to toe will get you glowing.
There are a lot of great benefits of exfoliating and it’s very important to exfoliate your skin on a regular basis. It removes dead cells and leaves you with softer, younger, healthier skin. But, when you exfoliate your skin you should make sure you don’t overdo it and don’t do it too often.
Many women don’t know how to exfoliate their skin and how often to do it, and this is the major reason why plenty of them end up having severe breakouts. It’s recommended to exfoliate your skin once or twice a week, select exfoliating cleansers that contain sea salt and/or sugar  Here are a few tips to follow to exfoliate your skin without any damage.
Things to use for exfoliating
Exfoliating cleanse
Loofah, body brush or exfoliating gloves
Pumice stone
Body lotion
Steps

Bath-BrushBefore stepping into the shower, brush your dry skin with your body brush or exfoliating gloves. This will help remove the loose skin and prepare your skin for the exfoliating process. Begin with the soles of your feet, working your way up your body.

Get into the shower and wet your body from head to toe. Don’t exfoliate your skin if you are sunburned or have any open cuts or wounds.

Use a pumice stone on your feet to eliminate rough spots and calluses. If your feet are extremely rough, soak them in a basin of warm water mixed with a cup of milk for 30 minutes before getting into the shower.

Apply your exfoliating cleanser to your loofah or gloves. Begin scrubbing your body in a circular motion starting with the bottoms of your feet and working your way up. When you reach the bikini area, don’t scrub too hard because the skin is very sensitive.

Use a body brush to exfoliate your back and other hard-to-reach places.

Be gentle on your face, particularly around your eyes and mouth. Use an exfoliating product especially formulated for the face, which is gentler than products designed to be used on the body.

Don’t forget about your hands. You want them to look and feel soft and smooth too!

Rinse your body with lukewarm water, and follow with the coldest water you can stand. Apply a shower gel to soften your skin, if you’d like.

After stepping out of the shower, apply a moisturizing body lotion all over. Body lotions and facial moisturizers containing alpha or beta hydroxy acids are ideal choices because these acids continue to remove dead skin cells.

Use body moisturizer once a day. Exfoliation is drying to the skin, so you must keep your skin hydrated.
