5 Ways to Exfoliate the Skin on Your Body
As someone who has very dry skin who tends to get flaky, rough patches on my body, I can really appreciate the benefits of exfoliation, which are: softer, brighter, and more radiant skin. I always make sure to do this once a week, and like to try different products, as well as various methods, to keep the process from getting terribly boring. If you wanna maybe change up your routine a little, or would like to try a new way to exfoliate the skin on your body, do read on.

1. With a loofah, loofah pad, bath lily, or bath gloves
The first thing that comes to my mind when it comes of exfoliating the body is a loofah, though I don’t even use loofahs! I guess because it’s a pretty common household object and because it’s so accessible. Using a loofah, bath lily, or bath gloves is one of the cheapest ways to exfoliate. You just need one of these, soap or shower gel, and you’re set. To keep these bacteria-free, hang them to air dry and any time they start to look moldy or dirty, just replace them.
Body brush with natural bristles
2. Dry brushing
Ooh, this one I hadn’t heard a lot of before. So what is it? Well, it’s the method of using a body brush to remove dead skin cells. It’s called dry brushing because it’s done while the skin is dry, or before a shower or bath. There are claims that dry brushing has other benefits aside from sloughing off flaky skin—that it can help reduce cellulite and stimulate the immune system, among others. It’s recommended to be done once or twice a week at most. I have personally never tried this but I’m quite intrigued by it.
The Body Shop Body Scrub
3. Using a body scrub
Using body scrubs is a pretty fun way to exfoliate the skin. You may experiment with scents and different formulations which you may find suitable for your skin type or preferences. Scrubs are great for a pick-me-up, because of the variety of scents they come in. If the skin on your body is normal or tends to be oily, you can try light, sudsy scrubs, and if you have dry skin, you may opt for scrubs that contain moisturizing oils and butters. It’s also available in different textures, from smooth to more grainy and rough.
Sakura Bath and Body Oatmeal Soap
4. With exfoliating soaps
Exfoliating soaps are basically bars of soap that contain exfoliating bits, such as oats or sea salt. These are fun to use and make for a mild for of exfoliation. Soaps with oatmeal bits are great for sensitive skin because they’re not harsh at can have skin calming properties. Some exfoliating soaps contain dead sea salt, finely crushed nut shells, sugar, bits of loofah, and even sand.
Philosophy The Microdelivery Peel
5. Via chemical peel
The purpose of subjecting certain parts of the skin on the body to chemical peel is to rid those areas of imperfections such as hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and stretch marks. Layers of skin are literally sloughed off during the process, revealing the new, unblemished skin underneath. These are often professionally done, although I have seen some at home peel products which should be considerably milder. It’s definitely a solution I’m considering for the dark spots left on my back by bacne.
If you plan to keep your skin feeling soft, exfoliation is definitely something you have to keep up every week or so. But it’s not a huge chore ’cause it’s pretty easy to do and need not be expensive.
