10 Benefits of Body Polish Why You Need One
In a sea of body and skin treatments, it can be hard to decide what is the most beneficial for your needs. And when you hear the words “body polish,” you might think you don’t need one. It’s the same as a body scrub, right? Not exactly.
If you want to truly glow head to toe and unlock the ultimate blissful experience, it’s time to try body polish!
What is body polish?
Body polish exfoliates the skin on your body. Think of it as a facial for all of the skin on your body! It’s a method used to treat dry skin, sun-damaged skin, clogged pores, ingrown hairs and more.
Plus, body polish is the perfect way to pamper your skin. It is a relaxing experience that will make you feel like you’re at the spa, even if you’re at home.
What’s the difference between body polish and body scrub?
Body polish and body scrub are undoubtedly very similar to each other. However, there are some key differences between the two treatments. Body scrub exfoliates the skin and cleanses skin.
Many body scrubs are made with skin-safe ingredients like sugar. However, some body scrubs actually contain ingredients that will cause microtears, irritation, and redness on the surface of the skin.
On the other hand, body polish typically contains gentle ingredients like sugar, clay, or coffee grounds – plus, it has even more skin benefits! Body polish treatments also nourish and hydrate skin with essential oils instead of cleansing the skin.
10 incredible benefits of body polish
Body polish has so many benefits for creating that post-vacation glow all year round.
Sloughs away dead skin cells: Body polish exfoliates skin and removes dead skin cells from the top layer of your skin. This helps your skin look rejuvenated, refreshed, and smoother!
Opens pores to prepare for other treatments: Moisturizers and other skin treatments won’t work if they can’t penetrate your pores. Body polish opens up pores so your skin can receive nutrients from not only the polish, but other treatments.
Promotes skin health: Healthy skin is clean skin that is soft, hydrated and able to breathe. Body polish promotes skin health by preventing blocked pores, encouraging cell growth, and minimizing signs of aging.
Regenerates cells and stimulates new layers of skin cells: Your skin is constantly creating new cells and pushing them up to the surface. Body polish helps reveal these new cells and encourages new growth.
Prepares skin for an even tan: Are you planning on applying self-tanner or getting a spray tan? When your skin is uneven and dry, your spray tan will not apply properly. Body polish helps you exfoliate skin to prepare it for tanning treatments!
Removes dirt, oil, and debris clogged inside of pores: Your pores are like little suction cups for grime. When this grime isn’t removed, it can cause irritation and skin issues such as acne. Body polish helps draw out and remove this grime to keep your pores clean and clear!
Helps skin absorb moisturizers: Have you ever applied moisturizer, only to feel like it didn’t do anything? That might be because it can’t penetrate your skin due to the build up of dead skin cells. Body polish paves the way for a better moisturizer experience!
Prevents ingrown hairs: Ingrown hairs occur when hair grows back into the skin after tweezing or shaving. They’re not only frustrating but also painful. Using body polish can help prevent this from happening!
Creates a better shaving experience: It’s so frustrating to shave and find hairs left behind. Sometimes this happens because of dead skin build up. Using body polish before shaving will result in a closer and more effective shave!
Reduces signs of aging: When too many dead skin cells sit on the surface of your skin, it can make your skin look older. Body polish quickly refreshes and smoothes skin to improve its youthful appearance!
How to use a body polish
Using body polish is extremely easy. However, it’s important to skip polishing if you have any cuts, sores, or sunburns. You can use body polish when your skin has healed from these issues.
Step 1: Take a warm shower or bath to open up your pores.
Step 2: Massage your body polish all over damp skin. Rub it in circular motions with a sponge, loofah, or your hands. Be gentle and avoid sensitive areas! Take more time on rough areas, like elbows and knees.
Step 3: Rinse the body polish away from your body in the shower.
Step 4: Moisturize while your skin is damp to lock in moisture.
It’s important to keep in mind that you do not need to use body polish every day. Overexfoliating can make your skin more sensitive and also lead to redness or irritation. Depending on your skin type, you should be able to safely use body polish up to two times per week.
