The Best Body Scrubs
Published Sep 18, 2011
The cold months can be brutal. Your summer glow disappears almost overnight (except for a few stubborn dark splotches around your elbows and knees) and who’s a fan of dry ashy skin? During the fall and winter, your skin needs all the extra moisture it can absorb. Using a good exfoliator will help get rid of the flaky elbows and knees, and it’ll help your skin stay soft and smooth.
Don’t be fooled into thinking that all scrubs are created equal. Some contain scratchy particles that can leave skin rougher and more dehydrated. Here are a few delicious formulas that stand out from the rest.
The sea salt scrub gently exfoliates the skin and helps hydrate with the calming scent of water lily. You can use it in the shower or tub and it’s especially great for prepping the skin before you apply self-tanner.
Looking for a scrub that smells good enough to eat? Not only is this formula gentle enough for all skin types, but it’s also infused with sweet almond, soybean, avocado, and jojoba oils. Yum!
The only sugar scrub on our list has a juicy citrus scent that will definitely wake you up on a lazy morning. Rejuvenate your dry skin with the gentle, vitamin-infused sugar crystals.
