BUFF UP

Destiny - - Beauty -

It’s no se­cret by now that get­ting head-to-toe beau­ti­ful skin isn’t as easy as scrub­bing the same prod­uct on ev­ery part of your body. So how can you slough away dead skin cells to get smooth, soft skin for sum­mer?

Take a mo­ment to con­sider your body in parts, rather than as a whole. Then pur­chase ex­fo­liants meant for those ar­eas. For your face, re­mem­ber that there’s an ex­fo­lia­tor for ev­ery skin type and ex­fo­li­at­ing two or three times weekly is won­der­ful for re­duc­ing black­heads and pre­vent­ing clogged pores. Give your­self a per­fect pout with daily use of a sugar scrub balm in­fused with nat­u­ral oils that are meant solely for lips.

For your body, have some fun by ap­ply­ing a DIY salt or cof­fee scrub once a week – and be sure to spend a lit­tle more time on your knees and el­bows, which gen­er­ally need ex­tra TLC.

Don’t for­get your hands and feet, the hard­est­work­ing parts of your body through­out the year. Treat your feet to a 10-minute soak – per­fect for treat­ing cracked heels – be­fore mas­sag­ing a skin scrub into them to re­move hard skin. Then rub an anti-age­ing scrub and cream into your hands, as the first signs of age­ing typ­i­cally ap­pear there. DES­TINY REC­OM­MENDS:
