Quick Tip: Exfoliating

So everyone loves a good body exfoliator, yenno, the ones that make your legs baby soft. The ones that smell good. The ones that don’t hurt your skin. Problem is, the better ones are all quite expensive.

I know Jo Malone does a good one, for £72..

Soap & Glory does a more affordable one at £8

ESPA does one at £32

Ah the list goes on. My point is, you aren’t going to find an overly cheap one that does the job well, with a good scent that you adore. So what’s my solution? Do you like the smell of your showergel? I love mine, the Sugar Crush from Soap & Glory. So what’s that got to do with exfoliators?  All you need is one of these guys:

Pretty sure majority of you will have one of these. All you have to do is lather up your shower gel and rub  a little more  forcefully  than you typically would on wherever you want to exfoliate. I’ve found that using a mint-scented showergel works that bit better with this technique also. After your shower you just dry off and apply a moisturiser as your skin will be thirsty for it! I’m telling you, I get the same, if not better, results with this technique. I know it sounds mind-numbingly simple and obvious, but give it a try next time you’re in the shower.
