Summertime Essentials: Our 20 Favorite Scrubs & Exfoliators

Now that summer is officially here, it’s time to hit the beach and show some skin! If you haven’t already added a scrub to your skincare routine, now’s the time.  Essential for maintaining smooth and healthy skin, a body scrub helps speed up the turnover process of dead skin cells, revealing a healthier-looking dermis underneath. In addition, exfoliators help lotions, creams and oils better penetrate the deeper layers underneath—resulting in better skin overall!

From face scrubs to body exfoliators, these are our 20 favorites that made the list of summer must-haves.
