Exfoliating is something I try to do regularly and now that the festive season has been and gone I think it's even more important to make it part of my beauty regime. After having applied fake tan on the run up to Christmas and New Year it feels good to get rid of the fading tan and dead skin cells and have super smooth and soft skin to begin the new year.
One of the little extras that I received for Christmas was the Body Polishing Sponge by Velvotan. It i just the right texture to give your skin a really good exfoliation without scratching or irritating. I used this with my Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Scrub.
I found it worked really well and my skin was nice and soft for days afterwards. I also go some exfoliating gloves which is what I usually use to exfoliate again with my Soap & Glory scrub. These gloves are slightly softer on the skin but are easier to use than the sponge.
I definitely find that using a scrub along with either exfoliating sponges or gloves give a better result than using a scrub alone. Exfoliating is one of my essential steps before applying fake tan, to get a nice even, steak free glow, so these 'tools' will come in handy!
What do you use to exfoliate?
