We often overlook the skin on our body because people tend to focus much of their skincare efforts (and budgets) on the face. This is completely understandable - it's the part of you that you show the world and you want to look your best.
Your skin is your largest organ and ALL of it deserves care and attention. When skin gets dry, it is more easily damaged. Exfoliating the skin on your entire body has several important benefits and can help keep your skin healthy and protecting everything underneath!
1) Regular exfoliation helps your other products work better. By removing the dead skin cells that accumulate on the surface (eww), the moisturizers and body butters you use can soak into your skin to do a better job.
2) Removing the dead skin cells also reveals brighter, younger looking skin. Who doesn't want that???
3) Exfoliating can sometimes help skin conditions like eczema and dermatitis.
4) Using an exfoliator that is oil based can even help you skip the post shower lotion, which can be a real time saver!
So remember - Exfoliate 3-4 times per week for brighter, healthier, more moisturized skin.
