We all know we need to exfoliate the dead skin cells off of our body, but not all areas of your body should be treated the same. Your face can not be exfoliated with the same product as your feet, and vice-versa. Here we break down the body into 6 parts and talk about what is needed to exfoliate each area of your body.We all know we need to exfoliate the dead skin cells off of our body, but not all areas of your body should be treated the same. Your face can not be exfoliated with the same product as your feet, and vice-versa. Here we break down the body into 6 parts and talk about what is needed to exfoliate each area of your body.

Exfoliating Your Scalp

If you have dry scalp or dandruff, exfoliating your scalp helps minimize embarrassing flakes. We all have dry scalp issues sometimes & dry scalp is not dandruff, just dead skin cells. Exfoliating your scalp is as easy as rubbing Epsom salts onto your scalp a few times a week.

Exfoliating Your Face

When it comes to your face, exfoliating is key to good skin, no matter your skin type. If you have dry skin, exfoliating helps get rid of the flaky dry skin thus helps the anti-aging products work better as they don’t have to work their way through dead skin cells. If you’ve oily or combination skin, exfoliating helps reduce breakouts by breaking through the dead skin cells which can cause build-up and acne and bringing fresh new skin to the surface.

Exfoliating Your Lips

If you’re constantly finding your lipstick flaking off or you just can’t seem to keep your lips from peeling, there’s one way to get those kissable lips back in order – exfoliating!
Gentle is key on those sensitive lips. You can use a chemical or a mechanical exfoliant on them. One added bonus from exfoliating is the natural color that will show from stimulating the blood flow to your lips. Like every area of your body, make sure to properly moisturize your lips after you exfoliate.

Exfoliating Your Hands

If there is one anti-aging tip you take away from this, it would be that your hands (and your chest!) won’t keep your age a secret if you don’t start treating them like your face. You can use all the anti-aging products you want on your face, but if you don’t include your hands and chest, you won’t be fooling anyone. Exfoliate your hands just as you would your body, a few times a week. You can do this in the shower with your body scrub or you can use a hand scrub and keep it at your sink for a bit of pampering. Try Payots Gommage Amande. It is a delicious smelling body scrub with pistachio and sweet almond extracts. Brimming with micro-particles, this scrub is formulated to deliver a delectable exfoliating action.

Exfoliating Your Body

Exfoliating your body is a must. Your body sheds dead skin cells at an alarming rate and simply washing your body with soap doesn’t even make a dent in the removal of dead skin cells. (Dust much? See how much of the dust in your home is dead skin cells.) Exfoliate your entire body, concentrating on areas such as knees and elbows which are prone to dry skin.

Choose between Payots Gommage Amande, or Payots Gommage Mineral Brown Sugar Body Scrub or gloTherapeutics Therapeutic Body Exfoliant. This is a dual-action chemical and physical exfoliator with a potent combination of Lactic & Salicylic Acids which smooths, brightens and deep cleans the follicle helping prevent rough, bumpy skin.

Or if you prefer we offer Full Body Exfoliation or Back Exfoliation as a pampering treatment in-salon. You can choose to have this treatment followed by a hydrating full body moisturiser or before your spray tan to ensure an impeccable application.

Exfoliating Your Feet

Exfoliating your feet is essential! They take a beating every day and they deserve to be pampered. Exfoliate them by getting a pedicure or do it in the shower with your body scrub. Because your feet are harder to exfoliate than your body, you can use a scrub on them 3 to 4 times a week or more depending on your results. You will get best results if you soak them for 15 minutes in a foot soak. The most important thing to remember is to apply a hydrating foot cream, such as Payots Douceur Des Pieds to your feet after exfoliating. Douceur Des Pieds is an ultra-fresh, powdery gel that delights tired, overworked, damaged feet. With just a few minutes of massaging a day, its “spa” formula will have you happily on your feet again. It cleanses, absorbs dampness, freshens, eliminates fatigue, and relieves dry, cracked feet. The plus: a magical texture that turns into a powdery, satiny veil.




When you are stressed, tired and have too much to do, you sometimes lose the inclination & the will to look after yourself. PAYOT Laboratories have developed a complete slimming ritual with targeted high-performance products.
