How Do You Exfoliate Skin?

One simple way to exfoliate your skin is to apply a suitable exfoliating product using a sponge and a loofah. You need an exfoliating scrub, a sponge, a loofah, a lotion and water. The process lasts for a few minutes.

  1. Wet your skin

    Wet your skin with water to allow all the ingredients to form suds for a while and to help leave your skin soft after the process. Wet skin is also easy to wash after the exfoliation.

  2. Apply the exfoliating scrub

    Apply your exfoliating product in small circular motions to ensure that every spot is covered. Begin with your face, and work your way to the other parts of your body. Use sponge to scrub thin and sensitive skins. On thick and rough sections of your skin such as knees and elbows, use a loofah. Although similar to a sponge, a loofah has rough texture that scrubs rough skin effectively.

  3. Wash off the exfoliating scrub, and apply lotion

    Rinse off the exfoliating scrub from your skin using lukewarm water, followed by cold water immediately after scrubbing to avoid itching and to close the skin pores. Apply lotion to preserve moisture and keep your skin hydrated, soft and healthy.
