Daily body wash is not enough to exfoliate the tens of thousands of dead cells, accumulated every minute. You need to assist the process of dead cells elimination with some extra care 1-2 times weekly. And as body exfoliation differs from the facial one, see how to do it.
The skin of the body is thicker and rougher than that of the face. You should use more pressure, as well as a suitable aid. First of all, you need an appropriate scrub formula. Most often, it contains fine exfoliating particles that gently peel the dead cells and nourish and hydrate the skin, leaving it soft and smooth.
Use scrub product with anti-cellulite effect. Enriched with powerful active ingredients (caffeine, pink pepper) that break down fats, their formula not only smoothes and softens the epidermis, but also prepares it for the following anti-cellulite treatment.
After you wet your body with moderately warm water (hot water has a drying effect), apply a small amount of the product and spread it with gentle massaging movements from your legs to your chest, back and arms. Emphasize the massage on the areas with cellulite, as it will assist the drainage and will stimulate the blood circulation.
For additional effect, you can use a loofah, a bath glove or a natural bristle body brush, before rinsing. Make small circular movements from the bottom up with the scrub until it breaks into foam.
Rinse your body with lukewarm water to lock the valuable ingredients and moisture in the pores, then wipe gently with a soft cotton cloth.
Apply a moisturizing product – a lotion or a body cream, and in the areas with cellulite – a special anti-cellulite cream, a serum or a gel, which are most effective after bath. Use massage movements to apply. This will help to release the tension from the muscles, to break down the fat deposits, and to spread retained water.
