Editors Pick: Body Scrubs For Skin Worth Obsessing Over

If your current routine stops at body wash and lotion, consider adding a scrub.

Body scrubs are mechanical (also known as physical) exfoliants. They use abrasive particles or granules such as sugar or salt, ground nut shells, cornmeal, or beads made from a natural ingredient like silica or jojoba to lift and remove dead skin cells and dirt with friction. Not only do scrubs exfoliate the skin to reveal a smoother look and feel, but scrubs add an extra layering of pampering to your day-to-day regimen, making other parts of your routine—shaving or waxing, moisturizing, lip wear—even more effective.

Now I don't mean to frighten you, but If you don't exfoliate, dead skin can pile up into a thick, rough layer that scatters light rays and causes skin to appear ashy and dull. This over-accumulation of dead skin can also lead to acne, clogged pores, and premature signs of aging. Yikes!

To find the best scrub for your skin type, it's best to look at the scrub ingredient list or Ask St. Eden. As a rule of thumb, sugar is generally softer and thus gentler than salt, cornmeal, and nut shells, and may be better suited for sensitive skin. If you're eager to buy a scrub, and stuck on what scrub to pick, here are 8 scrubs that will pretty much get your skin from chapped and dry to one worth obsessing over.
