Body scrubs: your exfoliation FAQs answered
If you’ve been wondering how to get smooth skin, exfoliation is your answer. But what exactly is it, and why is it so good for you? Here we answer the most commonly asked questions so you know the benefits, as well as how to get the best results. Silky, smooth skin is just a few steps away...
What is exfoliation?
It’s the removal of dead cells on the surface of your skin to help clear the way for the healthy skin underneath to take center stage.
What are the benefits?
Those dead cells are often responsible for your skin looking dull, or not feeling as soft and smooth as you’d like. Exfoliating – or body polishing – helps to clear clogged pores and remove dry, dull skin.
Is exfoliating harsh on skin?
No, exfoliating at home in the shower isn’t if you’re using a nourishing product and if you do not have a pre-existing skin condition. Dove Exfoliating Body Polishes are perfect for exfoliation whenever you feel your skin needs a pick-me-up. With a rich, whipped texture, they nourish as you exfoliate, gently buffing away dull, dry skin. For best results use 2-3 times a week.
What types of body exfoliators are there?
Some people like to use loofahs, shower poufs or body brushes while they exfoliate. But with the right exfoliating body scrub (and gentle pressure), you can just use your hands. Try our Pomegranate Seeds & Shea Butter Exfoliating Body Polish – it not only smooths and cleanses your skin, but also lifts your senses with its bright scent.
How often should I exfoliate?
Between 1-3 times a week will keep most skin types in tip-top condition. We do not recommend more than three times a week.
How do I add exfoliation into my skin care routine?
With Dove Exfoliating Body Polish it’s easy. Just pop one in the shower between your shampoo and body wash to use when you feel your skin needs it.
