Glow, Glow, Glow Your Boat

Reclaiming a youthful glow for summer is what we all want. To reclaim that youthful glow, buy the best exfoliating mitt, sponge or cloth you can find, and gently scrub away in the bath or shower with a natural soap, like Dr. Bronner’s (www.drbronner.com).

Or, if you prefer, buy or make a good quality body polisher, salt scrub or sugar scrub. Using circular motions, exfoliate away to remove dead surface skin, improve circulation and lymphatic drainage, and smooth out cellulite, to glow, glow, glow your boat. After that, you just need to add summer! You will adore the results.

Exfoliate regularly to recapture and maintain fresh glowing all over skin – feet and hands both love this!!! And don’t forget knees, ankles, elbows and armpits too. Always apply body oil or body lotion after exfoliating, and just before going out the door.

The real benefits from regular exfoliation go even further than a youthful glow:
