Our Pick of The Best Body Exfoliators

Choosing the best body exfoliator for your skin type

To really look after your skin, your body needs just as much love as your face. So, for that everyday touch of TLC, you’ll want the best body exfoliator on your bathroom shelf. You can refresh your daily skincare routine with salt scrubs, sugar scrubs or exfoliating cream body scrubs. When choosing the right scrub for you, you’ll need to understand the best body exfoliators for your skin type as well as what to grab when you want a little luxury.

The benefits of exfoliating

Your skin is continually regenerating. It’s important to exfoliate to make sure you’re removing any dead cells from the surface of the skin. If old cells begin to pile up, your skin can feel (and look) dry, rough and dull. Adequate exfoliation will remove these dead cells and reveal fresh, new ones leaving your skin feeling softer, smoother and rejuvenated. You’ll find exfoliation can also help with ingrown hairs and removing impurities.

Scented body scrubs will also help leave you feeling revitalised and invigorated, while you wash your daily stresses away with the water.

What to look out for

The skin on your body is usually much less sensitive than that on your face. This enables you to try different body scrubs on your body and experiment with salt, sugar or fruit-based exfoliators.

When making your choice, bear in mind that salt scrubs tend to have bigger particles than sugar, and the smaller the granules the gentler the scrub is on the skin. If your skin is a little on the sensitive side, opt for sugar over salt or scrubs with smaller salt particles.

The best body scrub for sensitive skin

Just like sensitive skin on your face, you need to soothe, protect and restore the skin on your body. Having sensitive skin doesn’t mean you should shy away from exfoliation, just that you should choose a scrub that is gentle and that works with your skin rather than against it.

Our Almond Milk & Honey Exfoliating Scrub is enriched with organic almond milk from Spain and Community Trade honey from Ethiopia, Almond Milk & Honey is specially formulated for sensitive, dry skin. Rubbing gently onto dry, rough patches of skin when you're in the shower or bath, it delicately buffs away dead skin cells, leaving it feeling soft and smooth.

The best body scrub for dry skin

If you suffer from patchy dry skin, you’ll need to choose an exfoliator that removes any dead skin cells from the surface and that reduces any unwanted flaking. The right scrub will give your skin adequate moisture, to help combat dryness and leave your skin feeling replenished.

Where your skin is very dry, it will need increased nourishment from our naturally-inspired products. Our Coconut Exfoliating Cream Body Scrub and Exfoliating Sugar Body Scrub are the best choices for very dry skin. With a rich, creamy, particle texture these body exfoliators smooth and refine. Now’s your chance to buff yourself beautiful with these creamy body scrubs, scented with fresh coconuts or shea. Blend one of the nourishing scrubs with water and apply in circular motions to reveal smoother, more radiant, silky-soft skin.

Or to bring some extra luxury into your daily routine, opt for our Spa of the WorldTM African Ximenia Scrub, handpicked in Namibia from the ‘Tree of Life’, the ximenia fruit seed yields a luxuriously rich oil, leaving skin feeling smoother and softer.

The best skin exfoliators for normal skin

For normal skin that’s not dry or sensitive, it’s important to exfoliate to continue to maintain your skin’s health. You can also choose a scrub for a bit of pampering or simply to feel reenergised.

To really nourish your skin and leave it smooth and replenished with oil, go for the Spa of the WorldTM Brazilian Cupuaçu Scrub-In-Oil. For the full reenergising experience choose our Spa of the WorldTM Mediterranean Sea Salt Scrub. Our Mediterranean Sea salt is precious for its mineral content and its coarse crystals, which are the perfect texture to reveal fresher-looking skin.

Now’s the time to find your favourite body exfoliator and revamp your daily skincare routine.
