Many of us remember to exfoliate our face but we should remember to treat our bodies with the same love and care. Our bodies need regular exfoliation to maintain a healthy glow and keep the skin looking as youthful as possible. 

You should exfoliate your body for the same reasons you exfoliate your face, to smooth the surface, to prevent breakouts and to help downplay brown spots and pores. Exfoliating your body also helps your moisturiser penetrate better, removing dead cells that make the skin’s surface rough. 

However, exfoliating by itself won’t make your skin look gorgeous and healthy. What you do after exfoliating can either undo or maximise the benefits of exfoliation. 

After each exfoliation you should apply an ultra-hydrating moisturiser to ensure that skin is hydrated and protected from environmental damage. You can maximise the benefits of your post-exfoliation routine by ensuring you use a moisturiser containing ultra-hydrating natural oils and humectants: 

Glycerin is a great choice, because it keeps moisture locked deep in the lower layers of skin. 

Jojoba Oil delivers deeply-penetrating moisture while mimicking the skin’s natural oils. This means that Jojoba Oil is good for those with particularly oily or dry skin, as it can deceive the skin into producing more standard amounts of oil. 

Macadamia Nut Oil is a lightweight oil, that is well absorbed without feeling greasy. It contains one of the highest sources of palmitoleic fatty acids, which are vital for delaying skin and premature ageing. 

Coconut Oil also possesses significant moisturising properties. For example, one study in the Natural Medicine Journal found coconut oil significantly increased skin hydration and surface lipid levels in those suffering from mild to moderate xerosis (Dermatitis). 

Shea Butter absorbs quickly into the skin, penetrating the layers and resulting in a soft and silky surface. It is high in vitamins A and E, which means it has high levels of fatty acids, helping provide an ultra-moisturising effect. 

The Dianne Caine Australia Detox Body Exfoliator contains a stimulating and detoxifying formula which helps increase circulation and remove impurities from the skin. Pumice and Walnut Shell help smooth and buff skin to perfection, for a bright and glowing appearance.    

The Dianne Caine Australia Ultra Hydrating Body Butter is a luxurious and nourishing formula which melts into the skin. Organic Shea Butter provides an intense moisturising action. Sweet Almond Oil delivers an abundance of nutrients, while Macadamia Nut Oil adds antioxidant and soothing properties.
