As our skin cells are renewed, the old and dead skin cells begin to accumulate on the surface. This can leave the skin looking dull and result in patches of rough or dry skin which can be uncomfortable and itchy. Regular exfoliating will help to ensure that dead and dull skin cells are removed, ensuring that pores remain clear and the skin retains a bright and healthy appearance; but how often should you exfoliate?
Basically, it will depend on your skin type and the climate in which you live: the oilier your skin and the warmer the climate, the more often you will need to exfoliate the skin on your body. Skin renewal is compromised when oils and sebum prevent the effective shedding of dead cells, and so requires frequent gentle exfoliation. The Ultimate Buffing Cloth offers a gentle and yet effective way to exfoliate your skin while cleansing as it can be used in conjunction with your usual body wash.
If your skin is drier and requires less frequent exfoliating, then try using the Exfoliating Body Scrub a couple of times a week to ensure that your skin stays smooth and supple. You will find that regular exfoliating, followed by a good, nourishing moisturiser will keep those dry patches at bay and leave your skin glowing!
