The secret to silky, smooth skin begins with a good body exfoliator. A chest to toe scrub to reveal a fresh, glowing layer of skin is a weekly habit I developed over our many moons of lockdown. Whether you’re seeking body exfoliation for summer skin prep or want to replenish your year round body scrub stash – these are the smooth movers worth trying. Don’t forget to pair it with a hydrating body treatment for the ultimate silky, smooth skin.

Drunk Elephant’s new brown sugar and coffee bean based scrub leaves skin silky smooth and nourished. It has marula oils and almond milk to hydrate and feels awakening with the natural and delicious scent of roasted coffee.
I love having a tube of this by my shower at all times. A luxury treat for the skin, it’s a pearl sugar, argan shell and fruit acids exfoliating blend. The transformative texture is beautiful – it squeezes out as a gel, turns into a nourishing oil once massaged into the skin and rinses off as a milk. A quick, gentle treatment that boasts a refreshing grapefruit scent for an energising shower scrub.
As a fan of the Renaissance range – what’s not to love? This pink himalyan salt scrub is packed with vitamin E, omega 6, pumpkin enzymes and their signature collagen-boosting MSM. It smells gorgeous and reveals brighter, radiant and smoother skin.
An energising dead sea salt based scrub elevated with grape seeds and rice powder for a refined silky smooth scrub. Infused with nourishing oils and butters, this is a morning shower favourite for its refreshing citrus scent. Paired with their The Body Cream* you are left with incredibly silky soft skin from top to toe.
I’m a huge fan of Goldfaden’s refreshing scrubs. A blend of micro-fine ruby crystals and fruit enzymes creates an exfoliating cocktail for smooth and brighter skin. It is also infused with red algae, bamboo and probiotics to help protect and repair the skin.
I find chemical exfoliants for the body super interesting. We’re definitely seeing an elevation in body care using the similar ingredients and formulations to facial skincare which I love. The Dr Dennis Gross facial peels are one of my favourites so it’s no surprise that these versions for the body are a winner. You’ve got textured pads infused with both AHAs and BHAs to polish and refine the skin alongside hydrating and soothing squalane. (The Pixi Beauty Glycolic Body Peel* is another more affordable favourite that balances physical and chemical exfoliating action in one).
