When doing a weekly deep exfoliating treatment, you might do it for glowing skin or maybe think the only benefit is improving the skin. But that's only the tip of the iceberg. Below you find the other benefits you get during a full body deep exfoliation when using the Exfoliating Mitt.
By removing dead skin cells and environmental dirt, you open up the pores. During your treatment, this makes you sweat more and release toxins and excess water through those newly opened pores, which in turn can reduce bloating and puffiness. By drinking enough water before the treatment, you will sweat more. Which is what we want, right? ;)
To add to the de-puffing from sweating is the lymphatic drainage. When you do a full-body exfoliation and scrub on the back of your knees, groin area, armpits, belly, and neck, you stimulate the lymphatic system. This circulation through the lymphatic system releases lymphatic waste from your body. It aids in de-puffing the face too, and you will notice it most right after a deep exfoliation treatment. Drinking enough water after the treatment will keep the detoxification going as the lymphatic waste moves to the bloodstream.
Great skin looks and feels nice, but the fresh feeling you get from deep exfoliation is almost better than great skin. Up to a few days after the deep exfoliation, you feel extra fresh after the next coming showers. This is a result of removing a built-up mix of sweat, bacteria, dead skin cells, and deodorant and body care residue.
That healthy glow we all love can only be achieved with proper exfoliation. This doesn't take away from the fact you have to feed your skin healthy foods because the inside out approach is necessary. However, even the best skin can't thrive while covered with dead skin cells. Build up of dead skin cells also increases the chance of getting acne, ingrown hairs, and other skin issues. Proper exfoliation can avoid a lot of these skin problems.
Burning extra calories
With a proper full body exfoliation, where you don't skip any body part, you will feel it in your arms as if you had an arm workout. Because you kinda did. It doesn't hurt that this activity adds to the calories burned that day.
During and after exfoliation, you can't help but feel relaxed. Like during a regular shower, you might get your best ideas and wind down from the day or week. After the routine feels like post-workout bliss. And just like with workouts, you will be happy you did it.
When you are doing a full-body, deep exfoliation, you will automatically give yourself a full body massage that boosts circulation. This brings oxygen to all body tissues and delivers nutrients to the skin. It helps reduce muscle soreness and tension, reduce cellulite, and tone the skin. It will also relax you by reducing stress hormones and helps promote a good night's sleep or a wonderful nap.
That skincare is way better absorbed on exfoliated skin is common knowledge. It is only logical that lathering a layer of dead skin cells with your expensive body care is counterproductive. But when you have deeply exfoliated your skin with the Exfoliating Mitt, you might find out you need less hydrating body creams and oils. Sometimes the dryness you see are flaky dead skin cells. When scrubbing them off, you reveal the fresh skin that needs less product and will absorb it better and have better results. A tip is to be aware of the toxins in some body care, because of the better absorption, you would want only pure goodness entering your skin.
Faux tan and body make-up
If you love a faux tan or body make-up, then you know the importance of exfoliating before application. Needless to say, is that with deep exfoliation you will have the perfect base skin for a flawless even result. Also, when you want to remove tan residue, there is no better way to do so than deeply exfoliate the skin. As a result, you will be ready for your next faux tan or body make-up.
