Exfoliation is the act of removing dead skin. This beauty treatment makes your skin soft and makes you feel beautiful. The skin revealed after you exfoliate has a smooth, silky texture. Exfoliating your ankles creates a beautiful transition from your legs to your feet.
Things You'll Need
Sit in a comfortable position on the side of your bed or on a sofa where your ankle is within easy reach. Rub your ankles in a circular motion with a soft, dry washcloth to remove loose flakes of dead skin.
Mix a few drops of water with some salt or sugar to create a grainy mixture. Rub the mixture on your ankles, massaging them as you go.
Remove the grainy mixture from your ankles with a wet washcloth. Rinse the cloth well and repeat until you remove all of the mixture.
Dry your skin thoroughly and apply softening lotion. Repeat this exfoliation process once a week. You will pamper yourself by removing impurities from your skin and feeling relaxed, calm and stress free.
You can purchase creams or foot scrubs made to exfoliate the ankle. Generally, the main exfoliating ingredient is pumice and the moisturizing ingredient is usually aloe vera cream
You don’t need to spend a lot of money unless you want a name-brand product. Simple or home-made products give you the same results.
