18 Scrubs To Use From Head To Toe To Refresh Your Skin

Share

In the realm of beauty, there are few feelings more satisfying than sloughing off dead skin cells to reveal soft, smooth, and glowing skin. And with good reason. Exfoliating refreshes and renews skin while allowing other products to be more effective. But if you're only exfoliating your face and maybe legs from time to time, you're missing out. To truly refresh from head to toe, you have to exfoliate from, well, head to toe. And yes, wherever you need a little extra exfoliating action, there's a scrub for that.  

For example, if you feel like your hair just never seems truly clean even after using a clarifying shampoo, you may need to exfoliate your scalp. Not only will it help relieve product buildup, but it can even help with dandruff. Have lipstick that looks patchy? It may be because your lips simply need to be scrubbed for a smooth canvas. So before you give up on some of your other beauty products for not being effective enough, give 'em a shot by exfoliating first. From new favorites to cult classics, here are 18 exfoliators to try to keep everything from your scalp to your toes fresh and clean. Go ahead, treat your skin.
