Summer is almost officially here (is anyone else counting down the days?), and it’s time to prep your skin! After dry and cold winters, it’s good to exfoliate both your face and your body to slough off the dry, dead skin. It will help topical products like sunscreen absorb better and also make your skin feel incredibly soft.
When shopping for a good body scrub, look for products with very hydrating elements as well as a semi-gritty texture. Since your skin will be thirsty for moisture after exfoliating, oil-based scrubs are a great idea.
Also, you may want to be a little bit pickier with your facial scrub than your body scrub. Since the skin on your face is more sensitive and needs a little more TLC, look for products that are “gentle” and not too abrasive.
Here are six great body scrubs worth checking out. If you aren’t in a good exfoliating or scrubbing routine yet, try adding it in once a week. While it may make your shower last a bit longer, it will also make it feel more like a spa experience — and who wouldn’t want that?
