If exfoliating your body is not a part of your beauty regime, it’s high time you added it. With the constant use of air-conditioning in Dubai, combined with the heat, skin can often be prone to dryness and flakiness. Chlorine and sea water also exacerbate the problem of parched skin.
By exfoliating, you remove a layer of dead skin cells to leave softer, silkier skin. Exfoliate three times a week for optimum results. Scrubs made with fine granules such as salt or coffee will ensure extra smooth skin. Apply to slightly damp skin in circular motions – you can also use a body exfoliator. Pay particular attention to rougher areas such as elbows and knees, where skin can get especially dry. Exfoliating not only keeps the skin soft but is an ideal way to protect against in-grown hairs. If you are prone to them, you can exfoliate daily. You should also exfoliate before shaving your legs.Other benefits of exfoliation include improved circulation, as well as the reduction of scars.
