7 Body Scrubs for Young Skin (And 6 Post-Scrub Products)

Nuxe Body Fondant Body Scrub, $24 

The creamy moisture base of Nuxe’s scrub is ideal for dry skin types, and features pure plant exfoliants like walnut in different grain sizes that get into every nook and crevice for optimal sloughing. Almond extract and orange flower petals fill the shower with a sweet citrusy scent.


In an aquatic color that reminds us of a tropical island vacation, this oil-free scrub contains bioactive seawater that renews skin with essential minerals, enzymes and antioxidants. Marine crystals derived from sea salt and black rice gently brush off dead skin cells before a hydrating base of brown kelp, fennel and sea lettuce from the coast of Brittany, France, replenish skin.


This walnut shell polisher exfoliates skin with a radiance-boosting blend of tea tree and green tea extract that add antioxidant benefits. Frankincense and delicate jasmine lend a sensual scent. Best of all, it’s a bargain buy at under $10 and comes in an upside-down tube for easy application.


Black honey from the tropical rainforest, soothing aloe vera, ginger root, honeysuckle and vitamin E work together to smooth skin texture with natural powers of rejuvenation. Alpha hydroxyl acids and natural antioxidants that help speed up cell turnover make skin look brighter and younger.


Soft, rounded spheres of pumice, lava and bamboo blended with papaya and pineapple enzymes means you can double up and use this gentle fruit scrub on your face, too. Organic sweet almond oil and shea butter add omega-rich moisture that’s packed with nutrients like vitamins A and E.


Southern Hospitality’s assortment of sugar-based polishers are particularly great for getting your feet ready for sandals, with oils of sweet almond, avocado and grapeseed. As you work the scrub into skin, it also foams up to cleanse. Our favorite is the coconut flavor, which contains real shredded flakes and shell for extra exfoliation.


Famed Hollywood skin expert Ole Henriksen brings the spa home with a turquoise sea salt scrub enriched with detoxifying lemongrass and lavender. The classic exfoliating formula made with hydrating glycerin is ideal as a self tanner prep to smooth skin for more uniform color application.


Post-scrub, you’re not doing your skin any favors if you follow with a harsh cleanser. Enriched with yogurt proteins that condition and replenish skin, Dial’s body wash is inspired by our favorite summer frozen treat. The cleanser lathers with fruit juices of pineapple, papaya, watermelon and guava, and then delivers an invigorating cooling effect to leave skin feeling energized.



Eucalyptus + Mint, $10 each

A new beauty brand that just launched in Walmart, Aqua Spa targets aging body skin with formulas rich in zinc, copper and magnesium. The body wash comes at a bargain price in oversized bottles in either citrus and ginger or eucalyptus and mint scents.


Dial up your ritual by following exfoliation with an anti-aging body serum. This new launch from J.R. Watkins is rich in cold-pressed grape seed and blackberry seed for antioxidant protection against free radical damage. Apply to damp skin soon after stepping out of the shower for optimal absorption and benefits.


Dr. Colbert’s cult favorite anti-aging face oil now comes in a body form! Hurray! Treat your body to premium skincare with a nourishing body oil replete in antioxidants. Oleic acid-rich Marula oil joins oils of argan, yangu, passion fruit and borage in a super restorative formula that targets cell repair and skin texture for younger-looking skin.


Anti-inflammatory indigo is at the heart of Tatcha’s beautiful body cream that is made of liquid silk. To capture the benefits of the flower, the stems, leaves and petals are steeped in water and fermented to produce concentrated extract. Tryptanthrin and indirubin actives in the extract reduce skin irritation and aide in the natural healing processes of cells.


This light body oil refreshes skin with olive leaf and green tea, and also works to brighten skin luminosity and firm elasticity. Inflamed skin is soothed so that the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles are diminished. Choose from delicious scents ranging from blueberry to pomegranate and lavender.
