The Right Way to Exfoliate: Tips From Our Tuel Pros

When your clients come in for a facial we know you educate them on the importance of exfoliating their face as part of a regular skincare routine, but what about their body? Take it from the pros, their body needs a little attention too, especially as the weather warms up in the summer. As time goes on, sun damage and certain skin issues can make it difficult for the body to naturally shed dead skin cells, leaving clients with dry, flaky, dull looking skin that can make their entire body look less than glowing...and no one wants that. That’s why we’ve put together a few tips from the Tuel Pros so you can educate your clients on how to work total body care, including exfoliating, into their summer skincare routine.

Start by helping them understand the purpose of exfoliating the body. Since the main goal is to slough off those dead skin cells, there’s something refreshing about physically scrubbing your skin and breaking down any build up. One of the biggest questions we’re sure you get is “How often should I exfoliate?” Well, it all starts with knowing your skin type. While this is especially true for the face, the same rules apply to the body. The more they know about their skin type, the better they can care for it. While some skin types can only handle exfoliating once a week, others are able to work it in several times per week. The best advice you can give is to tell them to pay attention to how their skin responds after exfoliating to determine the best body skincare routine.


Tip 1: Choose the right product

Think beyond the face and choose a product that is formulated for the body. An all-natural body wash formulated with natural botanical ingredients including pine essential oil to cleanse and condition, bladderwrack to help nourish and replenish moisture, and a touch of glycolic to gently exfoliate will cleanse the skin of toxins.

Tip 2: Use the right technique

We believe that proper exfoliation isn’t about harsh body scrubs, but gently removing those dead skin cells and leaving your skin soft and smooth...not irritated. Pair the right body wash with a pair of exfoliating gloves to gently buff away dullness and soften rough, dry patches. Gently scrubbing the body will also prevent ingrown hairs and bumps revealing brighter, healthier looking skin.

Tip 3: Finish with the right moisturizer

You should moisturize daily of course, but post-exfoliating is always the right time to hydrate and moisturize the skin. Talk to them about body serums that help lock in the moisture, and ultra rich body lotions, that provide your body with maximum care after they exfoliate. Pro tip: massage the body lotion over damp skin after your bath or shower. Remind them to use a body lotion after the body serum and they’ll feel like they just got a facial for their body.
