Get the Buff on Exfoliation
Since we travel the world in search of summer and run around in bikini’s here at World Swimsuit we know a thing or two about the effects that the elements can have on one’s skin. Spending a fair amount in salty water, soaking up the sun and shooting the breeze can have devastating effects on your skin if you don’t care for yourself properly.
One of the essential steps in every beach babe’s beauty routine should include proper exfoliation to help your skin renew itself.
Be aware swimsuit babes, it’s not just your body that needs to be exfoliated but also your beautiful face. Take care to find a gentle facial exfoliation product to treat your skin, perhaps do a small patch test on the delicate skin just below your jaw line before you set to scrubbing your whole face – You can do a facial exfoliation 1 – 2 times a week.
For your beach bod, you should aim to exfoliate 2 – 3 times a week, this could mean getting your hands on a shower scrub that you can use twice a week or more regularly if you feel that this would be more beneficial for your skin, but we found that you should include at least one intense scrub treatment like a Frank Scrub or a Salt Scrub once a week to reap the maximum benefits.
Be aware that your skin constantly needs to be hydrated as well and more so after an exfoliation, so make sure that you drink your 8 glasses of water daily and that you invest in a rich moisturising body lotion or body butter that will keep your skin supple and smooth.
