Top Body Polishers To Use On Flaky/Dry Skin This Winter Season
Winters are spine chilly during the last month of the year and most of use believe in layering ourselves with multiple items like body warmers, pullovers jackets, trench coats and all. I am sure many of you might have noticed that in spite of using many after bath moisturizers, somehow the skin is always dry & flaky when you get rid of those layers of clothing while going for a shower or while going to bed! Well, it might be because you are not exfoliating your body skin enough and all the body butters you are using might just not be enough to treat the dry flaky skin on the skin!
So why not get rid of that dryness and get a smoother skin so that all the fragrant body butters you have got for winters are more effective on the skin without any flaky layer!
So, here I have some best suggestions of body polishers/ exfoliators which you can buy for yourself to use in these coming months of winter & I have a DIY recipe as well to share with you all in case you love using ingredients from your kitchen to take care of your skin!
