The benefits of exfoliation
Body scrubs are only intended for use on the body and are not suitable for facial exfoliation. Although these two treatments have similar actions, they are each reserved for specific areas of our body. So be careful not to make a mistake!
How does a body scrub work?

- Mechanical exfoliation: this is made up of small grains that exfoliate the skin as they pass. It can be used with the bare hand or with a horsehair glove.
To avoid damaging the skin, it is best to use a scrub once or twice a week, but no more. On damp skin (e.g. when showering or bathing), apply your scrub to the body, then use gentle upward circular movements. Be sure to focus on dry areas such as elbows, heels and knees. The results are quickly visible: your skin is clearer and softer!

How often should I use a body scrub?
To be fully effective, body scrubs must be performed regularly and integrated into your beauty routine. It is not always easy to know how often you should do it. On the body, the skin regenerates very quickly. To free the skin of these impurities, exfoliation should be carried out at least twice a month to guarantee greater effectiveness.
