Do make exfoliation part of your shower or bath routine to help slough off dead skin.

Don't exfoliate every day; that can irritate. Twice a week is fine.

Do pay extra attention to rough spots like elbows, knees, and heels.

Don't use products containing ground fruit pits—they can create microtears. Try a salt or sugar scrub, or a formula with glycolic or lactic acid.
