Body scrubs are the key to soft, smooth skin.
No matter what the weather, we shouldn’t neglect our skin. Scrubs are amazing at getting you to your softest skin ever, but they aren’t just there to remove dead skin, they have tons of body benefits including boosting your circulation, which helps with the dreaded cellulite, getting rid of ingrown hairs, upping your skins hydration and improving your skins texture.

Body scrubs should be incorporated into your usual body care routine, use them in the shower on damp skin using gentle, circular motions and they will banishing dull, rough patches of skin and leave you looking more radiant and glowing. And, if you’re a fan of fakery, the tan type, it is a total must to exfoliate all over before you apply any type of tan. If you forget to scrub before hand your tan is much less likely to last as long and will probably be a bit patchy in places.
