Exfoliation helps to dislodge deep-seeded impurities, refine the appearance of pores and improve skin’s overall texture,” says Ole. “It also helps skin to be more receptive to anti-aging products, like moisturizers and serums.”

Exfoliate your face and body two to three times a week during the Summer,” Ole advises. “Since your skin is more exposed to outside elements this time of year, opt for a face and body scrub that’s made with gentler, more natural ingredients like fruit enzymes, lavender extract and aloe vera.”

Before applying self-tanner, be sure to exfoliate with a body scrub so you’re tan comes out nice and even,” Ole says. “Exfoliating the body enhances circulation, removes dullness and re-texturizes for smoother, more luminous skin.”

Try creating an at-home scrub utilizing household items that double as natural exfoliants,” offers Ole. “Homemade scrubs can be used 3-4 times per week and offer the same benefits as store-bought products. Ingredients like coffee grounds and sesame oil help firm skin and fight cellulite while nourishing and purifying, too.” TRY: Ole Henriksen’s DIY Beach Body Scrub (1/2 cup sea salt, ½ cup finely ground coffee, ¼ cup sesame oil and ½ TSP eucalyptus essential oil)
