How Often Should You Go for Body Polishing

Has work from home made you feel tired and tied up in knots? We know the perfect way for you to up your home-spa game, and pamper yourself with a deeply relaxing experience. Body polishing, which has been trending all over beauty channels on social media, is the perfect new, and much-needed addition to your DIY skincare routine.

You might’ve been wondering what body polishing is or why it should be a part of your skincare. What may sound like an elaborate treatment, body polishing put simply is just a combo of exfoliation and moisturization. Same as how we use a face scrub to remove dead cells and follow it up with a moisturizer to keep our face hydrated, our body needs a similar regime to stay nourished.
Our bodies are exposed to dust, dirt, and sun damage every day, which makes our skin look dull and dirty. Body polishing is an easy way to cleanse the skin and nourish it.

Body polishing has a number of benefits - it removes dead cells, leaving you with healthy, fresh, and attractive skin. Regular polishing also helps to reduce pigmentation, promote cell generation, unclog pores, and boosts blood circulation. Not to mention that it’s extremely relaxing and therapeutic.

It might seem like a new trend, but natural body polishing has long been a part of skin care practices using ingredients like sugar, salt, coffee & oatmeal. They polish the skin and are a rich source of antioxidants and vitamins, which buff away the dullness, making your skin more radiant and toned.

The best thing about this body treatment is that you don’t need to burn a hole in your pocket and necessarily get it done at a salon, you can as easily do it yourself. We’re here to help you choose the right products, and share our in-house body polishing tips. Read on to know more, and thank us later.

Now that we know ‘what’ body polishing is, let’s jump into the ‘how’. All you need to begin with are two products. #1 the exfoliant and #2 the moisturizer.

There’s no need to look any further for the right products. Check out our Body Polishing Kit which consists of a coffee body scrub and a choco body butter. They’re enriched with the goodness of coffee, vitamin E, and coconut oil, making your skin extra supple.

Here’s how you get started -

Step 1 - After a warm shower, exfoliate​ your body using the body scrub, but remember to be gentle.
Step 2 - Use a warm towel or go for a shower to remove it from the body. We recommend not using soap to rinse since that’ll dry out the skin.
Step 3 - Lastly apply a generous quantity of body moisturizer and massage for a few minutes to lock in the moisture. The exfoliation allows for the moisture to go in deeper.

Top tip to make your experience more wholesome and relaxing - gently massage your body with a body polishing oil before exfoliation, apply the oil and let it sit for 15-20 minutes before exfoliating.

Our favorite oil to use is the Naked & Raw Coffee Body Polishing Oil - Not only does it smell divine but it’s also laden with ingredients like rosehip oil and sweet almond oil which reduces cellulite in the skin and leaves your body looking flawless.
You can also try our most popular Body Toning & Polishing Kit, which is a coffee-infused trio of polishing oil, body scrub, and body lotion.

Ready to try out this treatment that promises you skin like never before? Here are a few more things to keep in mind.

#1 Use products that are suited to your skin type. There’s a range of products in the market, curated especially for different skin types - make sure you choose one that’s right for you. Even if you have dry skin, our Coffee Body Scrub - crafted from arabica coffee and cold-pressed coconut oil is a great option. It works well for all skin types and doesn’t dry out the skin.

#2 Don’t over-scrub or over-exfoliate as that can be painful and defeat the purpose of the body polishing treatment. Any irritation, redness, or flakiness is a sign that you’re being too harsh. Be mindful while scrubbing your body, and avoid any excess rubbing.

#3 Keep a gap between the 2 sessions. Even though it feels amazing and makes your body feel re-energized, it’s important to keep a week’s gap between two treatments to allow your body to absorb the goodness and to avoid extreme dryness.

#4 If you’re prone to allergies and breakouts, be sure to do a patch test before applying the scrub all over your body. Consult a dermatologist immediately if you suspect you’re experiencing any allergic reactions.

Now that you know all there is to know about body polishing, get your hands on some amazing products, and let your skin get that much-needed rejuvenation. Let us know how your experience goes!
