What Does Exfoliating Do For Your Skin?

It can help to remove ingrown hairs, kp and strawberry skin.

How Often Should You Exfoliate Your Body?

Weekly exfoliation helps to keep your skin smooth and fresh.

If youre planning on self-tanning, exfoliation is an essential step in the process.

Exfoliating your skin before spray tanning or self-tanning will help you achieve a more even, longer-lasting tan. Here are some tips on how to exfoliate before a spray tan or self-tanning:

What Can I Use To Exfoliate Before Self Tanning?

The best exfoliator to use before self tanning is an exfoliating glove or mitt. Why? Because it will rinse cleanly leaving your skin exfoliated without any product residue that could be left over after using an exfoliating scrub or wash.  Often those types of exfoliating products are an oil base or have heavy moisturizers in them that can block your sunless tanning product from soaking in evenly.

Do you use an exfoliating mitt on wet or dry skin?

Start by taking a shower and getting wet all over. Use a gentle body wash with your exfoliating glove or mitt to remove any dead skin, dirt, and oils. Make sure to focus on areas such as your elbows, knees, and ankles where the skin tends to have dryer skin.

After you finish exfoliating, rinse off well and pat your skin dry.

Apply an unscented moisturizer to your skin to help keep it hydrated.

How Long Before Self-Tanning Should You Exfoliate?

12-24 hours is optimal timing to exfoliate before you self tan.

Can you self tan right after exfoliating?

It's best to wait at least 24 hours after exfoliating before getting a spray tan or self-tanning. This will give your skin time to settle and properly absorb your self tanning product.

Exfoliating before a spray tan or self-tanning is a crucial part of the process. By following these steps, you can help ensure that your skin is properly prepared and ready to achieve a beautiful, even tan.
