Beauty [re] Marks – Beach Body Exfoliants


We spend most days dreaming of warm sands and clear skies. Full of anticipation, we eat healthier and work out a little harder to reach our bikini body best. To be at your season’s finest, put your best skin forward! Summer skin takes a beating and requires extra care. Protect skin with SPF, keep yourself hydrated and get into the habit of regular body exfoliation.

Exfoliation is the act of removing dead skin cells from the outer layer of the skin — practiced for many centuries and believed to have extreme therapeutic benefits. Why do we need to exfoliate summer skin? Effects of environmental strains and the sun’s harmful UV rays can cause dullness, premature aging and unhealthy-looking skin. The use of body scrubs made from sugar or salt granules combined with essential oils keeps skin radiant and in its balanced state. These scrubs have antioxidant, restorative and antibacterial properties. When done properly, the result is beach-ready skin.
