While you probably already have a lengthy pre-wedding skincare routine in place (with cleansers, serums, moisturizers, the works...), don’t forget that your body deserves just as much TLC as the skin on your face. Luckily, exfoliating is a quick way to get soft, glowing skin all over. Think: smooth, honeymoon-ready legs, ready to take on the beach with your new spouse at your side.
You can buff away dull, dry skin with a dry brush or a loofah, but nothing will leave you quite as radiant as a rich and luxurious body scrub. And in addition to those buffing benefits, exfoliating scrubs can help you get a closer shave and a more even spray tan. There are also scrubs that firm skin, treat scars, and help alleviate body acne—all while hydrating and moisturizing your skin, too. So, what are you waiting for? Get polishing!
We've rounded up our favorite body scrubs for exfoliating your way to a lit-from-within, all-over glow. Keep scrolling to see our picks.
