Body scrub: 5 most common mistakes How to let the natural beauty of post-holiday tanned skin shine

Summer is winding down and for many, life has already started at full speed. There remain the memories and a tanned skin that will be difficult to say goodbye. How can you prolong your tan, then, to avoid taking on the sad and dull office complexion? The watchword is undoubtedly: body scrub. Contrary to popular belief, in fact, after the summer it is essential to exfoliate the skin if you want to keep it smooth and soft.

Do not be afraid: the body scrub does not eliminate the tan, on the contrary it enhances it and makes it more lasting, removing dead cells and stimulating the skin to regenerate. But what are the mistakes to avoid?

 

1. Using it too frequently

The first mistake not to make with the scrub is to apply it frequently because in this way the skin can be irritated, thus causing redness and discomfort. The right frequency to do the scrub is once a week for those with normal skin, but it can be fine 1-2 times a month for those with more delicate skin.

 

2. Apply it on delicate areas

As for the face, there are also areas for the body to be excluded as they are too sensitive. With the scrub it is in fact avoided to apply the exfoliator both under the armpits and in the bikini area where it is easy to irritate the skin and cause irritation.

 

3. Forget the moisturizer

After doing a scrub it is not necessary to just rinse with warm water, it is very important to moisturize stressed skin. This is another important mistake not to make because the scrub has the ability to dry the skin, so the right remedy is the application of a moisturizer.

 

4. Apply it before sunbathe

A tip: in summer, do not apply the scrub before sun exposure, since, by removing the surface layer of the skin and then exposing it to UV rays, you could increase the risk of sunburn. Much better to reserve the treatment in the evening, after a day at the beach or in the pool.

 

5. Choose the wrong scrub

It all depends on the needs of your skin: scrubs, in fact, in addition to exfoliating agents, contain an oily or creamy part that serves to nourish the skin, and specific ingredients that help you achieve your beauty goals.
