Exfoliating has always been an important step in any skincare regime – whether a quick scrub down in the shower, an at home pamper session or a well deserved day spa treatment. Exfoliating really helps to rejuvenate your skin by exposing the smoother and supple layer after buffing away the deas skin layer.

A good quality body scrub will actually help to remove ALL of the dead skin from youi body and expose a gorgeous layer of younger looking ski.n.
How do I use a body scrub?
You can scrub up at home in the shower or bath. Use a decent amount of product and work into your skin using gentle circular motions. Pay particular attention to problem areas such as thighs, bum and tummy to increase circulaton (this is EXCELLENT for helping diminish that dreaded cellulite!).
Rinse off and finish with a super hydrating body moisturser or body butter.
