Ensure your skin gets the invigoration and hydration it needs by investing in a body scrub this winter. Like a facial for the skin, body scrubs exfoliate away nasty dead skin cells that inevitably build up under jeans and stockings, leaving your skin deliciously smooth and soft. Give your sluggish system a circulation boost today with these oh-so-yummy scrubs.
The Body Shop Body Scrubs
The Body Shop can always be counted on to provide great bath and body products. Our favourite is their Coconut Scrub, a cream-based scrub that is extra moisturising. This gorgeous bath time treat contains sweet almond oil, coconut oil and organic soya oil, all of which work nutrients into the skin to leave it soft and glowing.
The Body Shop Top Tip: Always remember to massage your scrub into the skin in circular motions to help boost circulation.
RRP $27.95. Available from The Body Shop retail stores nationally.
Neutrogena Sugar Scrub Body Exfoliator
While you may not like the idea of rubbing sugar all over your body, Neutrogena’s body exfoliator works amazingly to smooth away dry, dull surface skin cells. Natural sugar crystals invigorate the skin without over exfoliating and botanical oil pampers skin, leaving it soft and smooth. It’s gorgeous fresh citrus scent means you’ll step out of the bath or shower feeling refreshed and glowing.
RRP $12.99. Available from leading supermarkets, variety stores and pharmacies nationally.
Elemis Exotic Lime and Ginger Salt Glow
Elemis’ Exotic Lime and Ginger Salt Glow is just like taking a spa treatment home with you. Using only the best natural ingredients, this distinctive formula is infused with a nourishing array of oils, which moisturise and regenerate the skin, leaving it radiant and silky. Lime and Ginger are combined with Natural Sea Salt to exfoliate the body so your skin is healthy and glowing. This is a perfect winter treat for yourself or a great gift for someone special.
Elemis Top Tip: When exfoliating, concentrate on problem areas such as knees, elbows and feet to uplift, energise and invigorate skin.
RRP $99. Available from Elemis spas, salons and selected Myer stores nationally.
Dove Daily Exfoliant Shower Scrub
The ultra-fine exfoliants in this scrub mean it is gentle enough to use daily, so dry, dull skin will disappear and new and fresh skin will be continually nourished. This is a perfect scrub for everyday winter use so your skin will stay soft and supple throughout the cold months when opaque tights and jeans are constantly rubbing against our skin.
RRP $4.49. Available from leading supermarkets, pharmacies and variety stores nationally
Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Body Polish
With its luxurious creamy formula, we love how this scrub leaves skin feeling beautifully nourished and soft. Key ingredients include honey, which creates a watertight film on skin, allowing it to re-hydrate itself, Jojoba Oil, which helps restore the skins natural lipid barrier and Shea Butter, which restores skin suppleness and improves the appearance of dry skin. This scrub isn’t tested on animals and we just adore its subtle soy milk and honey fragrance.
RRP $38. Available from www.kiehls.com.au.
Rescu. Top Tip: Never use a body scrub on your face as the skin is thinner and more delicate. Body scrubs are designed for the tougher skin on your body.
Johnson & Johnson Be Radiant Daily Exfoliating Cream Wash
This is a very gentle cream wash which uses natural milk extracts, making it a favourite of ours for everyday use. If you don’t want anything harsh on your skin, the smooth micro exfoliating beads will still ensure your dry skin is removed, making way for lovely radiant skin instead.
