On our never-ending quest for poreless, goddess skin (or at least simply healthy skin), we sometimes forget that our skin extends past our necks — and it needs a little (okay, a lot) of TLC. Shocking, right? It seems to somehow just take care of itself, needing nothing, asking for nothing — except perhaps a little body wash and lotion here and there, right? Well, not exactly.
The skin on your body is just as needy as the skin on your face — aka it has needs, dammit, and they won’t be ignored. And giving that skin some attention has its benefits — it means you can walk out of your house practically naked (or totally naked — we do not judge) with glowy, plump, fresh, peach-like skin. The easiest way to get there? Exfoliators.
Over time our skin cells build up, giving a dull appearance to our skin no matter how much body wash and lotion we slather on. Exfoliators slough off the old skin, allowing the shiny new skin cells to surface — and you to wear sleeveless, backless, pantless attire at any time. It also helps with razor burn (exfoliating pre- and post-hair removal will do wonders) and ingrown hairs.
So if you don’t exfoliate your skin, it’s time to remedy that immediately. And luckily, we’ve done all the work for you to find the best body exfoliators — because we stand firm in the truth that everyone deserves fresh af goddess skin
If the word “organic” fills you with glee, this Tata Harper scrub is screaming your name. First, just know that this scrub goes above and beyond. It’s made with FIVE biodegradable exfoliants (yes, five. Just let that sink in.). On top of that, it’s incredibly hydrating with its blend of argan oil and Tata Harper’s signature complex that makes your skin feel like you’ve bathed every night in a vat of oil. And if you don’t believe us, check out the reviews. The extensive gushing is what made us go for this scrub in the first place — and trust us, it lives up to the hype
Listen, we love a good dual product. And you don’t have to tell us twice to try one because we’re us — we’re here for a good time, not a long time (unless you believe in reincarnation, and then we have all the time), so we need to multi-task. And Ouai scrub is one of those multi-tasking products. It’s a scrub for your body and your scalp. Which means dewy skin plus the foundation for a healthy mane — so this scrub is high on our list out the gate. But it’s also made with a blend of sugar crystals and coconut oil, and smells like flowers with a side of sandalwood. Read: HEAVENLY. All this to mean that while you’re using this angel-scented scrub, the ingredients are working to both exfoliate and balance your skin’s moisture levels to give you the best skin.
No matter which exfoliator you choose, just know that we support you on this journey to your best skin — that is, just-was-born-5 minutes-ago level baby skin.
