Scrub a dub dub, it is time to get into the tub! You might be used to using a facial scrub in your skincare routine but have you been neglecting your body?
The skin on your body ideally needs to be exfoliated at least once a week, to keep it looking vibrant and healthy.
A body scrub or exfoliator should be the first step in your body care routine and, used regularly, will leave you with smooth skin, which feels both refreshed and renewed.
Keep one of these invigorating body scrubs on hand in the shower or bathroom to give your skin some much needed TLC.
Our range of the best body scrubs and exfoliators includes gentle exfoliators to prep the skin for a tan (real or spray tan!) as well as more gritty scrubs, which can help to get rid of dry skin and buff away dead skin cells, leaving you feeling silky smooth.
Exfoliators and body scrubs help to remove dead skin cells, as well as impurities, which naturally accumulate on the skin throughout the day.
Using a shower scrub will ensure that your skin is left feeling soft and smooth.
A body scrub or body polishing exfoliator also helps to prime the skin, ensuring that it is more easily able to absorb body lotions. The body cream will then be able to penetrate below the surface of the skin and absorb more deeply.
Exfoliating may also help to support the normal production of collagen in the skin which helps the skin to stay firm.
Let’s talk self-care for a minute. Not only does using an exfoliator offer all of these physical benefits for the skin but it can also be a great tool to help you relax after a stressful day.
Simply run yourself a lovely hot bath and massage your skin with an exfoliating body scrub, to help you relax and promote feelings of calmness.
If you are feeling stressed or tired, this can be a great routine to do before bedtime, to help you drift off to sleep.
Caffeine may help to reduce the appearance of cellulite and so coffee is a popular ingredient in body scrubs and exfoliators.
