Use the time in the bath to slough off dry skin cells off your body.
The skin on your body needs to be able to renew itself, and this process can be hastened if you use a washed cloth, loofah or body brush when sudsing up. Loofah can activate your skin’s circulation, drain the lymphatic system, slough off your dead cells and even soften the skin. All you have to do is wet the loofah and rub it in circular motions beginning with the hands and the feet and working up towards the heart. You can use your loofah alone or along with your favorites shower cream or soap. On the other hand, you may also want to use a wet body brush. Get a handle brush with for the oft-neglected areas like knees and elbows. Firmer bristles are better for hardened skin. A long-handled body brush helps you reach the back with ease. Exfoliating scrub creams get rid of hand calloused skin faster. Good ones are those formulated with healing agents like aloe vera, Vitamin C and Vitamin E. They will keep your skin soft smooth and healthy looking.
Apply the exfoliating scrub cream before your shower, leave for a few minutes, then rub vigorously when the water is running. The dead cells will come clean always. Exfoliation, using mild scrubbing creams in the bath is still quite different from dry skin brushing. Acting on the surface of the skin, it’s a great way to get rid of dead skin cells that tend to build up on the back, buttocks and back of the arms. Invest in the most luxurious body scrub you can find and give you the treat of a long hot shower, followed by a full whole-body scrub. Even better, get a special someone to help scrub you down. Done on a regular basis, exfoliation will leave you skin glowing. Note! Loofahs and wet body brushes are personal and they cannot be shared. Just as you would never let anyone use your toothbrush, you should never let anyone use your exfoliating bath tool. Instead, you should rinse it well and dry it. Change your loofah or exfoliating tool every three months. Also make sure that you take the time to clean it and dry it properly from time to time, ideally in the sunlight, which kills germs and has an antiseptic effect.
