It doesn’t matter how much lotion you slather on in the winter, if you’re not getting in on the best body scrubs, rough, scaly skin is bound to pop up at some point. Blame the dry air and blasting radiator. They’re the biggest culprits of dry skin in the winter, and their damage does more than the quick fix a body cream can provide—particularly on our elbows and knees, where we have fewer oil glands and a slower cell turnover rate, so dead skin builds up faster.
That’s where exfoliation is key. Not only will a great scrub or body peel slough away rough patches, it’ll clear the way for your moisturizers and body oils to penetrate even deeper. Bonus: the best body scrubs now even come with hydrating ingredients in them, making extra soft, supple skin easier than ever. Add one of these Glamour-editor favorites to cart, and trust us when we say your skin will thank you.
