Since we tend to show much less skin this time of year, it's often left neglected. Since our skin demands extra nourishment, hydration and exfoliation in the winter, we've got ourselves a rough skin situation. Embrace a soft, glowing change by incorporating a multi-tasking body scrub into your skin routine. Here are our top 10 picks that will no doubt leave your skin in tip-top shape and ready for spring.
Best All Around
Undoubtedly one of the best of its kind, this invigorating scrub from Fresh contains pure grains of brown sugar (unlike other types that only claim to) blended with ultra-moisturizing fine oils, a combination that will leave your skin feeling and looking baby soft. Not only is this scrub an amazing exfoliant, its clean lemon scent acts together with the natural scent of sugar for a restorative experience that is as close to a spa treatment as you can get.
Delivering serious medical exfoliation to combat dry rough patches including flaky or "chicken skin" bumps, this heavy duty scrub is the number one type recommended by dermatologists. Combining both a chemical peel and micro-dermabrasion into a single easy-to-use treatment, this heavy duty scrub is the one you want for thorough results.
Scrub and Relax
Can't make it to Bliss from some R&R treatment? Skip the hassle and expense and instead opt for this luxurious self-heating gel scrub.
