Summer Beauty Guide Part 2 – Exfoliation

Summer is coming and Beauty Snippets has compiled a Summer Beauty Guide to make the transition from stockings and pants to shorts and skirts easy.

This is part two of the Summer Beauty Guide – all about exfoliation.

Before you start shaving and tanning, you need to prepare your skin. Here are some fab tools for exfoliating your way to smoother, sexier skin!

1. Le Edge Exfoliating Tool ($39.95AUD, for stockists visit their website le-edge.com.au)

This innovative exfoliating handheld device works to remove the build up of dead skin and dirt without you having to continuously and abrasively scrubbing your skin. It has a stainless steel edge and when held at a 45 degree angle and moving against the direction of hair growth, it gently glides over your skin whilst exfoliating.

Can you believe it does all that without the need for mitts, loofahs or scrubbing creams and gels?

This is ideal especially when travelling as it’s so lightweight and consolidates a few showertime products into one.

2. Manicare Cellulite Bristle Brush ($14.95AUD, available at Priceline, Target, K-Mart, Big W and leading pharmacies)

Now this may not be an ‘official’ exfoliating tool but it is sorta the same thing. This cellulite bristle brush by Manicare is great for dry body brushing which is one of way minimising cellulite. Dry body brushing is also a quick way to remove any dead, dry and/or dull skin. This Cellulite Bristle Brush comes with two sides – on one side, you have 100% natural bristles and on the other, nodules which are perfect for some massaging!

The bristles are not too harsh or scratchy on your skin – which is important in a dry body brushing tool.

3. The Body Shop Ginger and Cranberry body polish ($20.95AUD/200ml, available at The Body Shop stores nationally)

If you still love body exfoliators, look no further than The Body Shop. They have a wide range of body polishes in various scents. These two are from their limited edition Christmas range.

These body polishes foam up really well, and they are gentle enough to use everyday!

The body polishes smell amazing. I am not a huge fan of ginger. Absolutely hate it. But the scent in this Ginger Sparkle body polish is really nice. I can’t quite put my finger on the exact scent but it sorta smells like sweet licorice! As for the Cranberry Joy body polish, it has a sweet berry scent. So lovely. Such a shame that the scent doesn’t last long on your skin.
