The skin on your body deserves some attention too, and apart from body butters and moisturising lotions, you should also be adding exfoliating body scrubs to the list. Exfoliating products for the body are skincare must-haves because they remove dead skin cells, unclog pores and prevent ingrown hairs and bumps from pushing through the skin. They’re also the ultimate secret to achieving smooth, silky-soft skin.
So if you want to avoid back acne, discoloration, hyperpigmentation, roughness or dullness, the key is to use a body exfoliator that’s gentle on the skin.
Exfoliating once or twice a week would greatly improve your skin texture and reduce the chances of blackheads and bacne. Over-exfoliating may irritate your skin, especially if you have sensitive skin.

Wondering how to use a body scrub? You should massage your preferred body exfoliator all over your body, preferably on damp skin. Be sure to concentrate on the rougher areas such as your elbows, knees, feet and thighs. Don’t forget to scrub behind your neck, armpits and underbutt too to polish away dead skin cells and impurities. Massage the product onto your skin in circular motions to improve blood circulation.
When choosing body exfoliators, it’s important to go for non-invasive products that are gentle to the skin. Clarins’ body scrubs aren’t just packed with polishing microbeads and sugar crystals; they also contain ingredients that keep the skin hydrated and nourished.

Many people make the mistake of not moisturising after exfoliating, which puts their skin at risk of dehydration. After scrubbing your body, be sure to apply a good body lotion or moisturiser to ensure that your skin stays hydrated and supple. Browse our range of body moisturisers here.
