And I don’t mean trying to clean the filth stained tub, I’m taking about exfoliating your skin. Next time you are enjoying a wonderful hot bath or soothing shower, make sure you pick up your scrubby and put it to work! Skin exfoliating is a common practice now days with so many great ways to take care of your skin, but most people don’t understand why to opt in for a shower puff instead of an old fashioned washrag. So, we are going to cover the top 6 benefits of taking care of your skin and scrubbing your way into a new self.

One of the best ways to renew your skin and revitalize your body’s texture is to exfoliate. Most only worry about their trouble spots like the bottom of your feet, elbows, and knees. But committing to a full body scrub will allow your skin to breath again, giving you a smooth, moist and vibrant look and feel to your treasured body. Don’t forget to exfoliate often to keep your body’s natural oils and moisture flowing to all your beautiful body parts.

Smooth as a baby’s butt! Yep, did you know that by exfoliating the dead skin on your body you are making room for a smoother, cleaner and better shave? Without the excess dead skin adding layers to your stubble, you can get a more direct shave allowing for a cleaner and smoother result. Combined with the now fresh and vibrant skin, the combination of a well shaved face, and carefully exfoliated area leaves a lasting impression.

Kick those wrinkles to the curb. Exfoliating has been known to help fight aging in individuals by improving the natural oils, moisture, and nutrients needed to keep your skin looking young. By removing the old and dried out dead skin in your face, you are giving your skin the ability to self heal while removing the dead skin which can cause fine lines, wrinkles and more.

Say goodbye to breakouts. Exfoliating on a daily basis removes any excess oils that are deposited on your skin, helping you prevent future breakouts and making sure your “oil zones” are not building up. By keeping your pores clean, you can help your skin prevent build up. In return, you will find that your skin is healthier, more vibrant, and clear of unwanted pimples.

Create a great foundation by committing to exfoliating. Did you know that the number one reason women have troubles with multi-tone skin color is due to dead skin building up on your face? By exfoliating, you are eliminating that build up and allowing your natural colors to shine without having to compensate during your beauty process.

Get more bang for your buck. If you are spending any amount of money on beauty products, then this next tip is definitely going to be worth it.
