Ever thought about getting a body exfoliation treatment but never really knew what kind of benefits you could have? The history of exfoliation can be traced back to ancient Egyptian times when abrasive masks, minerals and alabaster particles were used for this purpose. You might think body exfoliation is only a “luxury”, however there are many benefits of having this treatment done:
1. Prevents ingrown hairs: The main reason why you have ingrown hair is because there is too much accumulation of dead skin cells and the hair cannot pierce through. With regular exfoliation, you can definitely prevent this.
2. Helps body moisturizer penetrate deeper: Having a build up of dead skin cells will create a “barrier” and the efficiency of your body cream will be lost. By removing the overabundance of dead skin cells, your body moisturizer will penetrate much deeper and will provide the hydration that your skin needs, which leads to the next benefit…
3. Achieve smoother looking skin: Just like the skin cells on your face, the cells on your body regularly shed to reveal new skin underneath. As we get older, that turnover process slows down. This is where body exfoliation will help: by massaging the scrub over your skin, it will get rid of the dead cells, boost the circulation and help drain your lymph nodes by increasing blood flow to the skin’s surface. Applying a hydrating cream afterwards will seal and complete the process.
