1. What is body polishing?

Body polishing is a full-body exfoliation that removes a build-up of dead surface cells, promotes healthy skin cell turnover, and moisturizes the skin.

Ingredients in body polishes can vary, but there will generally be some substance to physically exfoliate, such as sugar or coffee grounds. Body scrubs also contain nourishing ingredients like shea butter or jojoba oil in addition to exfoliating agents like coffee grounds and sometimes essential oils that bring additional skin benefits.

2. How does body polishing work?

Body polishes play an important part in a rejuvenating and radiant skincare routine. They help remove dead skin cells, which encourages new cell growth.

The benefits of body polishing

Leaves skin soft by removing dead skin cells

Our skin is in the ongoing process of producing new cells to replace existing cells. It’s referred to as skin cell regeneration or turnover.

And it's how our epidermis does what it needs to do, namely, providing a protective barrier for the whole body. A well-functioning barrier keeps moisture in and irritants out.

Clogged pores also get a wash to improve skin texture

When you or a spa therapist applies and gently scrubs your entire body on the massage table, you not only slough off those cells but dig dirt and excess oils out of pores. This improves all-over appearance and complexion.

A gently exfoliating body polish also promotes blood circulation. Increased blood flow helps nourish cells and carry away toxins.

A gentle scrub down stimulates blood flow and reduces pigmentation from sun damage and the general nature of aging normal skin

3. Who should try body polishes?

In general, polishes work for every skin type. However, if you have chronic skin issues that require the attention of a dermatologist, then you may want to consult with them before booking a polishing treatment appointment or incorporating scrubs into your skincare routine.

Hydrating agents for sensitive skin

Small concentrations of glycolic and lactic acid, which are chemical exfoliants, maybe the preferred path for people with a sensitive skin type. Enzymatic exfoliators and scrubs might be even better than a body polish for those with sensitive skin since they are not as strong as hydroxy acids.

Lasting smoothness for dry skin

For those folks with dry skin, natural ingredients like oatmeal, rice starch, milk, or honey will feel soothing as it hydrates skin and rejuvenates skin.

Antibacterial properties for oily skin

If you have oily skin, you could benefit from body polishes with sea salt and other oils that kill bacteria. Peppermint essential oil is minty and antimicrobial, which is a good mix with sea salt if you like a refreshing aroma and acne-fighting capabilities in your body oil

A honey body polish can help deal with dryness but be weary of allergic reactions from body scrub with vitamin C

For a DIY brightening body polish treatment, you'll need to include a physical, natural exfoliant. That can be anything from Himalayan rock salt, sea salt, pecan hulls, or sugar you find in your pantry.f

You'll also want to add an oil or butter that brings moisture. And other ingredients that brighten or help with your particular areas of concern.

Many body scrubs

For improving skin tone

If you want to moisturize while improving tone and texture, try this next treatment recipe:

Mix 1/2 cup of baking soda with 1/2 cup of lemon juice. Make sure the mixture is blended, and then stir in a couple of tablespoons of coconut oil. If you like, you can mix in a few drops of your go-to aromatic essential oils as well.

Massage this coconut oil body scrub treatment all over your body and leave it on for 10-15 minutes before rinsing it off. And enjoy that body massage all over!

Another skin-healthy glow treatment option is this recipe with sugar, olive oil, shea butter, and dried rose petals:

Combine 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup dried rose petals, 2/3 cup olive oil, and one tablespoon of shea butter in a bowl and mix until all of the ingredients are combined and smooth. Essential oils are again up to you. Just make sure they're blended in well with the topical cream mixture.

6. Step-by-step guide for at-home body polishing treatment

  • Start with a patch test 24 hours before. If you have an adverse reaction, skip polishing

  • Take a warm shower or bath with lukewarm water

  • Gently massage the body polish into your skin with your hands (spend a few minutes and enjoy the sensation)

  • Give extra attention to the knees, elbows, and heels, and use a pumice stone on those rough areas if necessary

  • Rinse off well, and pat dry

  • Follow up by smoothing body lotions all over

      An at home scrub may require loofah and homemade body polish especially for tan removal

      7. How frequently should you exfoliate?

      It's safe to exfoliate two to three times per week. However, you may want to exfoliate just once a week if you have dry skin.

      Over-exfoliating can leave you high and dry, so you want to be sensible about it. If you experience irritation, reassess what products you're using and how often you do it. It may be the ingredients or the frequency.

      Now help yourself to glowing skin with whatever method you prefer! And just remember, JUARA's got your back (literally, in this case).
