Body Exfoliation: Do's and Don'ts!

Here we offer tips on body exfoliation, including what to do and what not to do.


  • Avoid heat after using a body scrub. Avoid saunas, steam rooms, whirlpools and other heated sources for a few hours afterwards, as excessive heat can cause irritation. Also, it is very important to avoid exfoliating if sunburnt.

  • Approach the chest area with caution. The skin on your chest is thinner and more delicate, so it is recommended to use a scrub with fine particles.


  • Exfoliate freshly waxed parts of your body for at least 24 hours afterwards. After that time frame regular exfoliation may be helpful, especially on the legs, arms and bikini area, to avoid ingrown hairs.

  • Get addicted and over-exfoliate. If you notice unusual redness or irritation, let your skin to relax.
