Exfoliating. Sounds fancier than it is. It basically means scrubbing off dead skin cells to reveal younger-looking, fresher skin. This shedding process also unclogs pores. Think of it like rust prevention. Try applying a body scrub to damp skin in a gentle circular motion, just like on the hood of your car. Spend more time on rougher skin areas such as your knees or elbows. Back to the car analogy, exfoliating can help ensure a soft and even-toned surface without dents and cracks in your paint job.
After showering, think of drying off as the polishing stage for your body. The technique is different from car polishing though: don't rub away the moisture, pat it dry. A towel isn't too bad, but you don’t want to cause any unnecessary damage or cause unwanted irritation or chafing, especially if you already suffer from dry skin. Work from the head down for maximum efficiency, and don't forget to spend a moment drying all those hard to reach nooks and crannies.
Now your skin is prepared for the final and perhaps most important treatment stage. You guessed it—moisturizing. Putting on the final protective coat of wax to your car. It seals the paint from the elements and fills in the small chips and scratches to make them less noticeable. Moisturizing helps stop skin from drying out, improves your skin’s appearance, and creates a protective coating to guard against environmental damage. It fortifies men’s skin to make it more resilient, so it performs more efficiently and lasts longer. Well worth the effort, because unlike a car, you can’t trade in your body for a new one.
