We get it, staying in for long periods of time on end can lead to our usual beauty routines being thrown off balance. But fret not, for we have just the right tools to get you well on your way to silky smooth skin again. Enter the humble body scrub.

These body scrubs do well to  exfoliate the skin by sloughing off dead skin cells to reveal beautiful, newly generated skin cells underneath. You can properly scrub your skin often (once or twice a week), well, and with light pressure in the showers. 

But be sure to get the right products and method - harsh and abrasive ingredients do more than just hurt your skin, but may cause damage to its outer layer, too. Ahead, we list the best body exfoliators that are just the right amounts of gentle, yet effective, and will leave you with baby soft, smooth skin.
