No one loves dry and flaky skin. As we scrub our body with loofah to remove the dirt and impurities which eventually leads to the removal of dead skin. The body can be scrubed everyday as the skin on the body is thick as compared to the skin on your face. The face is very gentle and hence is to be scrubed only once a week.

What is exfoliation ?

Exfoliating helps remove the dead skin cells and other remaining impurities. Exfoliation is crucial to keeping skin healthy and clear. It involves the removal of the oldest dead skin cells on the skin’s outermost surface. Exfoliation is involved in all facials, during microdermabrasion or chemical peels. It involves the removal of the oldest dead skin cells on the skin’s outermost surface. When left unattended, these cells will build up on your face and body, leading to dry, grey skin as well as blemishes like acne. Exfoliation reinvigorates your skin, making your body and face appear smoother and healthier while getting rid of unsightly flaws.
