Benefits of exfoliating your body

3 benefits to exfoliating your body

    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.
