How to Hydrate Winter Skin? First Step – Exfoliate!
Exfoliating Scrubs Are A Must-Have!
Body and facial scrubs are a must-have to keep your skin healthy, hydrated and soft. The main goal of a scrub is to shed dead skin; this allows your skin to drink in hydration from moisturizer and feel baby-soft. When rubbing a scrub onto the skin, circulation increases providing detoxification and shedding of dead cells from the epidermis. It is important to exfoliate your skin at home in between your (deeper exfoliating) in-office skin care treatments.
