The best body scrubs that actually work
They look pretty, smell pretty, but do you actually use those body scrubs that are given to you for Christmas each year? While we're not denying they are a great gift choice, they're not a great gift if they're sitting at the back of your bathroom cabinet, never to be seen again. If you like the idea of supple, smooth skin, you will want to add one of these into your life ASAP.

Body scrubs are amazing for a myriad of skin concerns - they buff, moisturise and condition your skin, not to mention ensure your self-tan looks seamless. These are some of our faves that promise to slough off dead skin cells and help to reveal a fresher, more youthful you. Pop one in the shower and next time you're waiting for the water to warm up, pop a dollop into your hands or loofah and rub into your skin, applying in circular motions (always towards your heart) as this helps your body circulation, and then jump in the water to rinse off - your skin will love you for it.
