3 benefits to exfoliating your body

Dreaming of silky-smooth and glowing skin, with improved tone and texture and smoothed out rough spots? Well exfoliating – the process of removing dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, either manually or chemically – could be the solution you’ve been looking for.

Regular exfoliation improves the appearance of skin and makes you feel great. It also works well if you combine your favorite exfoliator with a regular body brush routine, either before or in the shower.

Here are just a few more reasons you might want to get on board with regular exfoliation. Trust us, your skin will definitely thank you.

    It helps improve skin tone

    Regular manual exfoliation – using a product that contains tiny grains to physically, but gently, scrub your skin – usually results in a noticeably brighter skin tone. It aids the skin’s renewal process, shedding dead patches of skin cells and allowing new cells to surface. Within a few days, expect to notice a more glowing, even skin tone that feels soft to the touch.

    Prep skin for shaving 

    Exfoliating is a great way to prepare for shaving (if that’s what you choose to do) and reduce the risk of razor bumps and ingrown hairs, as it gives the razor a smoother surface to work on. Try exfoliating before you shave with our Dove Exfoliating Body Polish – it gently removes dead skin cells, which block hair follicles and cause ingrowns, and enables a much closer, smoother shave.

    Products work more effectively

    When skin is properly prepared, products can easily penetrate and get the job done, so it figures that regular exfoliation is a skincare no-brainer. Our Gentle Exfoliating Body Wash is a simple, but gentle way to ensure skin is ready for maximum absorption of any lotions, creams and even tanning products – it creates the perfect pre-tanning base for a long-lasting glow.
