Steps to a perfect weekly body exfoliation

As we age, our body's ability to slough off dead skin cells slows down.  Doing a full body exfoliation each week will leave your skin with a much more youthful glow and help eliminate those dry patches and ugly little skin bumps.  Below is step-by-step instructions to get the most benefit from your efforts. When you're done you're going to feel like you've been to the best spa in town!




  1. Apply oil to skin.  Cover all skin lightly with an oil like Earthly Body Hemp Seed Glow Oil which is a spray so it's easy to cover hard to reach places or BodyDrench's Agran Oil Emulsifying Dry Body Oil.
  2. Take a dry brush to skin from the feet up, brushing in short, light strokes.  Yes, that long-handled, soft bristled brush that comes with bath sets and hangs in your shower actually has a function.  Just don't hang it in the shower...use it dry.
  3. Step in the shower and, using a body scrub, like any LaLicious sugar scrub or Dermalogica Body Therapy Exfoliating Scrub,   start at the feet again and massage the skin in a circular motion on up the body.
  4. Rinse off using lukewarm water, then apply a salicylic acid body wash to skin (DermaE Very Clear Astringent is a good one), paying more attention to heels, elbows and knees. If you have a tendency towards back and butt acne, make sure to apply there as well.
  5. Pat skin dry and apply your favorite moisturizer while skin is slightly damp.
