Best Body Scrubs For Summer

3 Body Scrubs That Will Slough Your Cares (and Dead Skin) Away

With all the swimming, beaching, and short-shorts wearing that you're doing this season, what better time to indulge in a little full-body bliss? As important as it is to exfoliate your face during warm weather, you shouldn't forget about the rest of your skin; creating a smooth canvas for shaving, moisturizing, and applying bronzer is key — and it'll only make your skin look that much more amazing in all your pretty Summer ensembles. There are tons of great body buffers out there, but to see three of the best skin-smoothing scrubs, just keep reading.

Bliss Blood Orange and White Pepper Scrub ($36): This sugar scrub is packed with vitamins A, C, and E to protect against free radicals, as well as sunflower oil, which does an amazing job of smoothing and softening your skin. It creates a nice lather, which is great for use with a loofah or sea sponge. Also, the citrusy scent is really invigorating and perfect for your morning shower.

Origins Skin Diver Charcoal Scrub ($20): Bacne got you down? This scrub does wonders to unclog pores and get rid of bumps and body breakouts. It includes active bamboo charcoal, dead sea salts, and organic brown sugar — all of which help to gently exfoliate and buff away dead skin — plus soybean and olive oils that nourish and protect. Despite its thickness, it rinses off easily and doesn't leave any chalky residue.

Philosophy When Hope Is Not Enough Omega 3-6-9 Body Scrub ($30): Yes, a scrub that contains omega-3 fatty acids! This baby is pretty magical; it's amazingly lightweight, has a clean, fresh scent, and nourishes and conditions really well. It's a great buy for those with dry patches or sensitive skin, because it's gentle and won't irritate any rough spots. For optimum results, I recommend applying to dry skin in circular motions, then rinsing off in the shower.

Watching your budget? Hit the kitchen and make your own body scrubs with these easy DIY recipes.
