Skin Exfoliation Tips And Tricks

Flaky, dry, patchy skin or clogged pores is often due to the dead skin cells that have not fully shed. You can help your body shed these cells through exfoliating with a Brazilian Butterfly Essentials Body Scrub & Exfoliating Mitt.

Regular exfoliation is vital to your skin. If your outer layer of skin – the epidermis – is not exfoliated properly, it will not reveal the new skin cells and leave your skin feeling dull and dry. Once you exfoliate, you improve the surface and brightness of the skin. The bonus is that your beauty products will perform better by penetrating your skin more deeply.

The Reasons Why Different Seasons Change Your Skin

It’s important to keep in mind that your skin is susceptible to the changes in the weather. As the danger of sun exposure increases, it’s important to prep your skin for the summer. Ensuring you use SPF and BB moisturiser daily to protect your skin is crucial.

Winter on the other hand has different impacts on your skin and how you should exfoliate. Moving between the cold outside air and the dry heating of indoors can wreak havoc on your skin. The added layers of clothing you are likely to wear can trap any dead skin and increase your chances of having clogged pores or ingrown hairs.

Exfoliating with our BB Mitt and Essentials scrub will be an important step in rejuvenating your skin at these crucial times. Whilst using Brazilian Butterfly’s Essential or Delicates Lotion will be gentle and nourishing to your skin.

The Right Steps In Your Exfoliating Journey

Prior to applying your Essentials Body Scrub to an Exfoliating mitt, warm your skin for 2 minutes under warm water to help soften the dead skin cells so less scrubbing is required.

Then apply your scrub to the exfoliating mitt and in small circular motions. Be mindful not to exfoliate if you have open cuts, wounds or sunburnt skin as this can cause further skin damage.

You should always rinse your scrub off with lukewarm water. If the water is too hot it can cause heightened levels of skin sensitivity and strip the skin of necessary natural oils.

Post exfoliation, you should always use a Brazilian Butterfly Essentials or Delicates lotion to help keep your skin healthy and hydrated.
