How To Get Glowing Summer Skin + An #Ulta Body Benefits Giveaway


Keeping your skin exfoliated in the summer is its own special project, but the benefits are myriad. By sloughing off dead skin cells, you reveal smoother, brighter skin; provide a better self-tanner base and prevent ingrown hairs (sexy!). Here’s my trusty method for exfoliating skin with Body Benefits products, available here for under $6.

How To Get Glowing Skin Tutorial

  1. Start in the shower but BEFORE you turn on the shower. Exfoliation works best on dry skin. If you want to multitask, wash and condition your hair first, then dry off, allowing the conditioner to sink in under a shower cap while you exfoliate.
  2. Use your favorite scrub and apply to your limbs and stomach using the Body Benefits Skin Toning Body Massager. Apply less pressure on your upper body/torso and more to your arms and legs.
  3. Apply scrub to your back and use Body Benefits Luxury Net Bath Brush.
  4. Start your shower and rinse it all off, then go about your regular cleansing routine.
  5. Dry off, apply self-tanner or lotion and revel in your gleamy skin!

    Baking soda. Use ½ tablesoon of baking soda mixed with ½ tablespoon of a gentle cleanser, applying medium to light pressure and circular rotations for 1-2 minutes.

    Dryer skin types can mix ½ raw coconut oil with ½ baking soda and use 1-2 times per week.

    Oilier skins can use baking powder and leave on for 10-15 minutes for further oil absorption.

    Dry-brushing before a shower works really well. I’ll also make a homemade scrub using brown sugar and oil, grape seed or almond, and apply in the shower.

    I follow on Instagram as birdiebee52 and liked your Body Benefits video. I re-create a spa experience at home by turning of the lights while in the tub with only candles for light, use a facial scrub that my daughter makes and lay back to listen to some great music while soaking in the tub.

    My favorite method is just to use a really great soft exfoliant like the scrubs from Lush or the new sand one from Bath and Body Works. I find a lighter grain works better on my sensitive skin and I just use my hands and sometimes a Michael Todd body brush.

    I bought a natural bristled brush that really helps with exfoliating, and loofah or exfoliating glove is great in the shower in removing dead skin!

    I usually exfoliate after shaving, I like to think shaving acts as a light exfoliater before i get down and dirty lol
