Since it is step one in the self-tanning sequence, let’s talk about Go Slough Yourself. If you’re new to tanning, a great exfoliation pre-tanning is absolutely necessary. Your skin needs to be the perfect canvas to soak in the tanning lotion without having rough skin or unevenness. I find most people who say they dislike self-tanners have skipped this step…leaving themselves set up for a mess. Once you completely the exfoliation process, you’re all set!
What Beautisol Says About Go Slough Yourself:
Exfoliates and cleanses the body, preparing it for a perfect self-tan application
Features & benefits:
Physically exfoliates the skin with Diatomaceous Earth (aka little scrubby beads), removing unwanted dead skin cells and preparing the skin for a flawless self-tan application
Promotes gentle cell renewal with Salicylic acid, a beta hydroxyacid and a chemical exfoliant/Ensures a longer-lasting tan with the removal of dead skin before self-tanning
Nourishes and hydrates the skin with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory ingredients such as Passionflower and Acai Berry
Paraben-free, propylene glycol-free, sodium laurel/laureth sulphate-free and cruelty-free (PETA certified)
I love that this is a dense scrub instead of a thinner one. I feel like it coats my body and allows me to really exfoliate deep, not just the thin top layer of skin oils. I do have sensitive skin, so the addition of passionflower (which is both an antioxidant AND anti-inflammatory) is key to exfoliating my sensitive skin. Go Slough Yourself also contains salicylic acid which is a chemical exfoliant, talk about scrubbing off dead cells!
Verdict: Best self-tanning scrub I’ve ever used, hands down. Check it out HERE.
