If you use any type of body exfoliator or body scrub, it's essential to rehydrate the skin to support the skin barrier and extend your post-scrub glow. Failing to moisturize the skin after exfoliating can lead to transepidermal water loss, leaving the skin even drier than before. Want to take your hydration game a step further? Beauty experts recommend applying your body lotion or moisturizer on wet skin to lock in moisture. As for the type of moisturizer to use post-exfoliation, you'll want to choose one that contains gentle ingredients rather than more intense formulas that contain AHAs, BHAs, or retinol, as they can further exfoliate the skin and leave it sensitive.
