If you want the professionals answer, I was a aesthetician at one time. I'm assuming you're talking face, but if you want the whole body to prep for tanning, these can apply also. It's where you use some kind of abrasive to speed up the shedding of dead skin. Your skin will feel softer after because you have smoothed the rough surface. You don't want to over do it on areas that you need callouses on, i.e. your feet if you're a runner, etc. You can use a brush,loofah, or a scrub-or there are a million different gadgets for it,too. There are a lot of products out there to exfoliate-the best I've found is either a microfiber cleansing cloth like from a skin care store(I got mine from NCN pro skincare), or the Clarisonic brush if you want to be spendy(I got mine at Sephora). You can do whole body with either one. If you google exfoliation before and after you should get pics of results which are pretty accurate.
Oh, and to do it, if you use the cloth, just use it like any facecloth but without soap. One side to cleanse, turn over, and then the other side exfoliates. A brush you would use dry in circular motions all over. The Clarisonic does the work for you. A scrub you just rub all over damp skin with circular motion. Dry brush exfoliation is supposed to be really good healthwise, but I'm not sure I buy into that. A lot of people do use dry brushing in Europe. You can also just get the Axe detailer and the Axe scrub and do it that way.
