Your grooming routine should consist of skincare, haircare, oral care and bodycare. Most people always do the first three, yet forget about the latter. The skin on the body is exposed to the sun’s harmful UV rays, especially in summer, as well as a range of other aggressors. A body exfoliator is a vital step in any bodycare routine, and here’s why.
Exfoliating the body smoothes the skin, removes dead skin cells, prevents breakouts and visibly decreases the appearance of pigmentation and pores. Not only that, it also helps your skin to better absorb moisturiser applied afterwards. If you like to self-tan, your tan will also apply more evenly, as well as prevent patchiness when fading.
The Anthony Blue Sea Kelp Body Scrub is an innovative body exfoliator which eliminates rough, flaky patches. Polishing the body whilst nourishing skin, it soothes, tones and protects. Formulated using sea kelp extract, aloe vera gel and nutmeg extract, it removes both dead skin cells and impurities for smooth, healthy skin from head to toe.
The Organic Surge Tropical Bergamot Skin Perfecting Body Scrub is a gentle, refreshing and refining exfoliator.
