There is nothing better than freshly scrubbed skin, which is why a body exfoliant can be an important step in our beauty routine. Body scrubs are not only deeply nourishing, but they also make a great a self-care ritual. Hear us out: incorporating a body scrub means longer showers, and indulging in spa-like scents. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that while you’re de-stressing, you’re also exfoliating your skin from head-to-toe. It’s a win-win situation.

There’s an array of scrubs to choose from, too. Some use sugar, salt, or other ingredients like coffee and tea. To help you find one that will work for you, we found over 15 body scrubs for you to shop. Whether you prefer to smell sweet like coconut or want something a little more calming and soothing, there’s something for everyone.
