It's winter and with the cold weather comes EXTRA dry skin! There is nothing worse than trying to look fly with ashy skin. Dry skin is the accumulation of dead cells that the skin has not lost through natural exfoliation.
These cells build up, forming a barrier, keeping moisture out. In the meantime, your skin will be flaky, dull, lifeless, unattractive, and may itch. The primary way to alleviate dry, ashy skin is with by exfoliating with a body scrub.
Body scrubs contain small beads that gently slough away these cells, revealing smoother skin which looks more youthful and vibrant. Removing dead skin build-up allows for more effective absorption of your moisturizer. Notice the key word here is gently. Apply your body scrub with your hands, soft hand mitt or cloth. Concentrate on areas where you are extremely dry and flaky, but be sure not to overdo.
The ingredients in body scrubs do more than exfoliate dead skin cells leaving skin smooth and radiant. Scrubs can awaken your senses with aromatherapy and botanicals give you a well-deserved pick-me-up.
