We’ve picked our favorites from Aesop, Frank Body, Herbivore Botanicals and more.
An at-home spa is never complete without an exfoliating and nourishing body scrub. While skincare from the neck down is often neglected, an easy way to introduce body care into your beauty regimen would be bringing a body scrub into your shower. By giving yourself a massage once or twice weekly to clean off dead skin cells, you’ll notice what a difference it makes in the overall texture and appearance of your skin.
KEY INGREDIENTS: Glycerin, Peppermint, Naturally Derived Bamboo and Pumice.
If you love an invigorating scent in your bath and shower routine, consider trying out (MALIN+GOETZ)‘s Peppermint Body Scrub.

Use it two to three times weekly and you’ll feel like a new person.
