Exfoliator Belongs In Your Body Care Routine - Here’s Why

Exfoliator Belongs In Your Body Care Routine - Here’s Why


Chances are you already exfoliate your face as part of your skincare routine. Exfoliation is just as important when it comes to body care. The skin naturally renews itself every 30 days, which slows down as we age, resulting in dull, dry and rough skin. Using an exfoliator speeds up this turnover process, buffing away dead skin cells to reveal soft and smooth skin beneath.


WHY USE A BODY EXFOLIATOR?

Incorporating exfoliation into your body care routine can help to treat body acne and breakouts. It deeply clears the pores and prevents acne-causing bacteria from spreading. Exfoliating your body can stimulate blood flow and lymphatic drainage, releasing excess fluid and toxins. Regular exfoliation boosts the absorption of your body moisturiser, resulting in increased hydration. It also creates the perfect canvas for shaving, reducing the likelihood of ingrown hairs and razor bumps.


HOW OFTEN SHOULD I EXFOLIATE MY BODY?

While exfoliating is a positive addition to your body care routine, it’s important not to overdo it. We recommend using a body exfoliator two to three times per week, or before each time you shave.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL EXFOLIATORS?

As the name suggests, physical exfoliators rely on a manual action to buff the skin. Think scrubs containing tiny granules or grains, which physically slough away dead layers. Chemical exfoliators, on the other hand, work by using acids or enzymes to dissolve the bonds that bind skin cells.


WHAT SHOULD I LOOK FOR IN A BODY EXFOLIATOR?

Reach for a body exfoliator formulated with both physical and chemical exfoliators for best results. Our BODY POLISH was developed by female chemists and made in Australia using a considered blend of physical and chemical exfoliators. Salicylic acid and charcoal powder deeply penetrate pores and remove impurities. Finely milled volcanic pumice polishes, revitalises and stimulates circulation. We also made sure to include nourishing ingredients, like shea butter and soybean oil, to protect the skin and ensure it’s not stripped of natural oils.


HOW DO I EXFOLIATE MY BODY?

Spend a little time in the shower or bath before exfoliating; the steam and warm water will help to open up the pores. Disperse a small amount of BODY POLISH and gently massage onto damp skin in circular motions. Rinse thoroughly and follow with the BODY MOISTURISER to infuse hydration back into the skin.
