If you’d like to improve the look and texture of your skin, there is one beauty practice above all others that will give you the effect you’re looking for – exfoliation, exfoliation, exfoliation!
Exfoliation has had a bad press in the past, thanks to the wide availability of cheap and unsuitably harsh products – not to mention people rubbing such products into their skin until it looks red raw. If this is what you’ve been doing, stop!
Exfoliation, when done correctly, is meant to gently remove the dead cells that settle on the skin’s surface, without discomfort and irritation. You should use products that are finely balanced with natural ingredients.
If you suffer from dry skin, exfoliation will help to remove dulling surface debris. Those with oily skin will find congestion clears more quickly with exfoliation a few times a week.
For a comprehensive view of what exfoliants to use in facial beauty regimes, see your skin care therapist. But for your body, why not check out the fantastic Body Therapy range from Dermalogica?

Dermalogica Exfoliating Body Scrub
This scrub will smooth, polish and energise the skin. It is excellent for rough elbows, knees and backs of arms. Rice Bran and Phytic Acid aid the process of dead skin removal, while Green Tea polyphenols soothe and mop up free radicals.
Dispense a generous blob and lather up over the body in the shower. Rinse and pat the skin dry.
Dermalogica Hydro-Active Mineral Salts
Exfoliating enzymes dissolve skin debris, helping to restore your natural glow. This can be used as either a body scrub or added to a bath for a satisfyingly relaxing soak. Nutrient-rich Dead Sea salts and kelp extracts help to achieve smooth and polished skin. Slough away rough skin as the aromas of Coriander, Cinnamon and Ginger tantalise the senses. Sandalwood, Lavender, Orange and Clary Sage oil also lift the mood.
This is an excellent body treatment when combined with Dermalogica Stress Relief Treatment Oil. Put small amount of salts into your palm and mix into a paste with 2 pumps of the oil. Exfoliate the body gently, concentrating on hard skin areas such as elbows, heels and knees.
