Glowing, buffed and perfectly polished skin is a perennial beauty pursuit. Not just a necessity during the body-baring summer months, buffing away dead skin cells and boosting circulation is a must for the depths of winter when you’re piled beneath layers of clothing and exposed to the drying extremes of cold, wet weather and the dehydrating effects of central heating.
We’ve picked our top 5 exfoliating body scrubs that will wick away dead skin cells and boost blood flow.
Origins Modern Friction For The Body, £29. Microdermabrasion for the body. Buffed onto dry skin this creamy skin-refining exfoliator uses Rice Starch to buff away dull skin, Lemon Oil to brighten and Vitamin C to boost and strengthen. Add water and the formula whips up into a frothy, skin-smoothing texture which leaves skin soothed and softened.
Jo Malone Vitamin E Body Treatment Scrub, £68. Ultra-luxe, buttery and packed full of brown-sugar exfoliating crystals, this super gentle spa-worthy scrub melts on contact with the skin, leaving it smooth, intensely-hydrated and glowing.
Ushvani Kaffir Lime and Sugar Body Scrub, £44. Zingy, invigorating and skin-balancing, the Kaffir Lime scrub transforms, with the addition of water, from a grainy skin-buffing scrub into a light and creamy toning body treatment without trace of oil or residue.
Balance Me Skin Brightening Exfoliating Body Polish, £15. Using natural sea salt to polish together with coconut and sweet almond oil to boost skin renewal, this 100% natural scrub is a delight to use, especially when buffed onto dry skin.
Caudalie Crushed Cabernet Scrub, £19.30. Although course, the all natural grape seed and brown sugar granules blended in honey and organic essential oils make this scrub a circulation-boosting, cellulite-busting, skin-toning dream. This is hardcare skin-buffing at its best.
