When it comes to skincare, most of us are aware of how crucial it is to use a good quality cleanser on our face. We may also use the occasional face mask or even have a 12-step Korean skincare routine that we practice religiously, but what about the skin on our bodies? It’s just as important that we show it some love and one of the best ways to do so is with a good exfoliating scrub. We love ones made with ingredients like coffee and sugar for an effective scrub we can feel good about using. Whichever you use, be sure to follow it up with a little moisturizer for that perfect summer glow.
OUAI Scalp & Body Scrub
This sugar-based scrub from one of our favorite brands OUAI does double duty as it helps to remove dead skin cells from the body while being gentle enough to use on the scalp. It also contains coconut oil, so it moisturizes as it exfoliates.
Herbivore Botanicals Coco Rose Body Polish
This scrub will not only leave your skin feeling soft and “polished,” it’ll have you smelling fresh and clean as a garden rose. It’s also sugar based and contains organic coconut oil for added moisture and nourishment.
Osea Salts of the Earth Scrub
Instead of sugar, this scrub incorporates three different mineral-rich salts to remove dead skin cells. It’s a little bit rougher than other scrubs so while we do recommend using it sparingly, it also contains shea butter and vitamin E to help keep your skin hydrated.
