Spring has definitely sprung. Hear that? A distant lawn mower, the sizzle of the barbecue – yup, it’s the outside and it’s wonderful.
But shedding the winter wardrobe and baring your limbs for the first time after being bundled up for months on end can be daunting. So we’re sharing the importance of exfoliation for smooth, radiant skin with our favourite body scrubs to help you feel your best for your warm weather reveal.
1. Our bodies are incredible, but when old skin cells build up, the result can be dry, dull skin. Although our skin naturally sheds these dead cells over time, encouraging the process with exfoliation helps to create softer-feeling skin more quickly.
2. Exfoliating leaves skin feeling more invigorated, and it helps your moisturising lotion to do its skin-nourishing best.
3. Buffing pre and post bronzing helps to avoid patches if you’re using fake tan to bronze this year.
4. Exfoliation is also a lovely self-care regime, creating a feeling of all-over refreshment for mind as much as body.
Body scrubs are designed with a particle-like texture that is thick yet spreadable to help remove older skin cells. Using an exfoliator regularly will help to make you feel your polished best, with a more even-looking and smooth-feeling skin tone. There are a few different types of scrubs that can help you achieve that. Here are our favourites:
