We have already covered last week our Favorite Facial Exfoliants so today we will be covering our favorite Body Exfoliants. For those of you who don’t believe in regular body scrubs, let us tell you that they will change your life. OK, maybe not in a crazy way, but they will turn lackluster skin into soft, glowing, supple worthy of being on a magazine cover. And using a manual body exfoliant helps increase blood circulation, which in turn helps reduce water retention and cellulite, woohoo!
Ready for a little Scrub-a-dub-dub in the tub (or shower)? Read on for these amazing body scrubs that will turn that winter alligator skin into buttery-soft skin ready for bikini season.
Jan Marini Bioglycolic Resurfacing Body Scrub – Glycolic acid is the magic ingredient in this scrub, combining with tiny polished granules to provide a thorough exfoliation that will leave your skin super. Apply this with your hands or a washcloth and watch rough skin become a memory.
Elemis Lime and Ginger Salt Glow – This award-winning scrub is the same one used in Elemis spas world-wide. Pure sea salt combines with ginger to stimulate metabolism and tone the skin, and lime peel to purify. Kukui, camellia and jojoba oils moisturize and soften, making this a perfect weekly skin treat.
Aromatherapy Associates Enrich Body Scrub – This scrub is a powerful blend of sea salt, coffee and grapefruit. The sea salt works to exfoliate and detoxify, while the coffee increases circulation and helps reduce cellulite, and the grapefruit revives and tones. This one’s great for pre-beach primping.
Bliss Lemon + Sage Body Scrub – The perfect early morning perk-up, this invigorating citrus-scented scrub will send you on your way with super soft skin and a sunny outlook on life. Circular spheres gently slough off dead skin cells without tearing the skin, while jojoba oil, olive oil and shea butter moisturize for glowing skin.
