Cleanse. Exfoliate. Rinse. Moisturize.
Cleanse your skin with your favorite body wash or soap. The reason why we cleanse first, is to make sure that the dead skin cells that we remove with the scrub, does not leave room for the dirt to clog our, now open, pores. If dirt goes into our skin, it could cause acne and other types of bacteria to slowly get into our skin cells- so take our advice and exfoliate after you wash your body.
Take as little or as much as you'd like - this is your Self-Care and At-Home spa experience- and rub the Slushie on your body in circular motions to increase blood flow. While you are rubbing the Body Slushie all over your body and watching it form into a milky and satin-like feel on your skin, use this time to practice mindfulness. If you didn't have the best day, take this time to reflect, practice breathing exercises and watch your bad day go down the drain. This type of imagination/mindfulness technique is considered Dialectical Behavior Therapy, a theory/form of therapy that mainly focuses on different mindfulness techniques. Along with cultivating a sense of Self-Love and Self-Care, exfoliating the skin with our Body Slushies allows your skin to breathe, retain moisture from our Body Oils and Soufflés, and leaves the ultimate glow.
Rinse thoroughly. At this point, if you want to follow up with another body wash or soap, you can. Here, at Glow With Flo, we loveee a good Double Cleanse. We take a lightly scented, heavily cleansing wash like Castile Soap (Dr. Bronner's), then we follow up with a soap that's more moisturizing and one that smells divine, like Dove, Method, or Native Body Wash. If you go for a double cleanse, you will notice that your skin won't feel as "squeaky", or dry due to the oils in our Slushies. And if you've never double cleansed before, give it a try and comment below to tell us what you think!
Last but never least, after you get out of the shower, pat dry ONLY. When you leave a little water left on the skin, this allows our Body Oils and Soufflés to lock in the remaining moisture left on your skin, leaving you with soft and supple skin throughout the day.
