A Body Scrub for Every Body

By Christene Carr

If you have naturally beautiful even toned skin below your neck, good for you! This means you can easily get away with having a two step body care routine, that is: cleanse and moisturize. However, if you have dry, uneven skin, you might need to add another step to your routine to even out complexion and reveal your best skin. One of the easiest and fastest ways to even skin tone is to exfoliate. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells, increases circulation and makes it easier for skin to absorb your moisturizers and other body treatment products. We rounded up some great body scrubs to get you on the road to fabulous skin from the neck down.

Clairvoyant Beauty Blue Green Algae Body Polish

Uses sea salt, a host of nourishing butters and oils, and blue green algae to create a scrub that leaves skin smooth and very well moisturized. This is great to use as the final step after a nice shower or a long soak in the tub.


Peter Thomas Roth Anti-Aging Buffing Beads

Incorporates jojoba beads as an exfoliant to remove dead skin cells and prepare skin to better receive the active ingredients: glycolic acid, salicylic acid and botanical brighteners. With continued use, this product refines fine lines and improves skin’s texture. Peter Thomas Roth Anti-Aging Buffing Beads is formulated for face and body and works great on more mature skin.


H2O Plus Oasis Body Scrub

An oil-free, moisture rich body scrub formulated with marine crystals and black rice to gently exfoliate skin. It uses bioactive seawater, essential minerals, enzymes and antioxidants to replenish moisture levels in skin.


Su-Kari Cotton Blossom Body Scrub

Formulated with Turbinado sugar, grapeseed oil, organic coconut oil, sweet almond and Vitamin E, this all natural exfoliant will leave skin smooth, moisturized and lightly scented with clean fresh cotton, peonies, mandarin and freesia.


St. Ives Naturally Clear Apricot Scrub Blemish & Blackhead Control

This product is made for the face but works great on the body. The 2% salicylic acid in the formula works with the all-natural walnut shell powder to smooth skin and treat any body acne. Works great on backs and chests for breakouts.


Tip: While it is important to use sunscreen at all times on all exposed areas of the body, exfoliating increases the risk of sun damage. Click here for a lightweight body lotion with SPF 15.
