Few beauty rituals deliver instantaneous results quite like exfoliation. Whether it’s a granular scrub or an acid-spiked liquid, there’s no doubt that resurfacing the skin from head to toe will give you that shiny, brand-new feeling.
So here we’ve curated a few of our favourite formulas for all over — so you can enjoy skin that’s soft, smooth and radiant all the time. Keep scrolling to shop.
For Your Body
The skin on our body is tougher and thicker, so go for a gritty scrub or concentrated wash to slough off dry, flaky bits and restore softness.
Gritty and hard-working, this is the scrub to use when you need to come out of the shower feeling reborn. Made on a base of jojoba oil, vitamin E, Himalayan salt and essential oils, it simultaneously removes dull, thickened skin, while nourishing and smoothing.
If you prefer a gentle, daily resurfacing body treatment, this shower gel from Kosas comes spiked with glycolic, lactic and mandelic acids plus fruit enzymes to reduce the incidence of conditions like bumpy arms and ingrowns. Use it with a scrubby mitt for optimal results.
For Your Face
When it comes to the delicate skin north of the neck, look for a dedicated treatment that will renew and refine without irritation.
The original and arguably the best, this iconic chemical exfoliant is formulated with alpha and beta hydroxy acids to clean out the pores, soften the skin and reduce the look of dark spots. And while it smells terrible, the overnight results will ensure it becomes a staple in your routine.
Complete with enzymes, bamboo powder, diatomaceous Earth and lactic acid, this resurfacing treatment offers both chemical and physical exfoliation for smoother skin in minutes. Simply apply the mask all over, let it marinate and then add a little water before gently massaging it into the skin.
For Your Scalp
From improved circulation to more volume, scalp exfoliation comes with so many incredible benefits. Try one of these gritty shampoo formulas for best results.
Designed to deeply cleanse, refresh and detox the scalp, Christophe Robin’s Purifying Scrub is the ultimate once-weekly treatment to remove product build-up, restore volume and increase blood flow. The salt flakes are quite large, so you don’t need to use too much pressure — instead, gently work in circular motions until dissolved. The result is clean, full, television-commercial hair.
This fluffy, whipped shampoo is rich in nourishing oils and cleansing sea salt for soft, airy, purified hair. A tiny bit goes a long way, so work it into the scalp, mid lengths and ends before following up with a nourishing conditioner or mask.
