Exfoliation is being done to remove all the dead and dull skin cells on your body. Essentially, this prevents congestion in your skin and improves overall hydration.
Here’s a tip: perform this during mornings, right before you apply your toner, moisturizer, sunscreen, and makeup on your face. It will make all these products last longer on your skin. Just don’t forget to immediately add the moisturizer (on your face) and a hydrating body lotion (on your body) afterwards so they can lock in the moisture.
