Body Exfoliation - Essential in Winter

Skin feeling more like sandpaper?  Got the itchies? Cold weather, heavy clothing and dry heating can take a toll on more than just your face.  All of your skin can feel it.  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. 
  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. Moroccanoil's Dry Body Oil is also a good one.
  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, 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  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.
