At last, the days are getting a little longer, warmer, sunnier. After a long winter though, we often notice that our skin feels a bit drier or even coarser. And indeed: If we have neglected our skin care in the cold months, small dandruff may have formed on our legs and arms, which will not just easily disappear. In this case, a proper treatment is needed. Our ally for that: the body peel! The ideal body peel should not only exfoliate well, but also provide the skin with a certain amount of moisture to prevent it from immediately drying out again. A good peeling should therefore thoroughly free our skin from any dry spots and prepare it well for in-depth care with body oils, creams, and lotions.
Below you will find a selection of high-quality body scrubs from natural extracts and for a wide variety of skin types!
Origins convinces us with a selection of deep cleansing body scrubs with natural extracts that could not be more different from each other. While the Origins Ginger Body Scrub Smoothing Body Buffer combines the healing properties of dead sea salt, warming ginger and the rich power of macadamia and almond oil, the Origins Incredible Spreadable Smoothing Ginger Body Scrub offers a creamy combination of brown sugar and ginger with a foamy cleansing effect. Also made from brown sugar and dead sea salt, the Origins Incredible Spreadable Smoothing Salt Body Scrub is characterized by an invigorating scent of mint and orange.
With a creamy, moisture-rich consistency, the Kiehl’s Gently Exfoliating Body Scrubs promise to effectively remove dead skin cells without drying out the skin. Substances such as apricot kernel particles, aloe vera, and chamomile are responsible for this effect, cleaning, smoothing, and softening the skin. Suitable for all skin types, Kiehl’s offers its body scrubs in three fragrances: Lavender for gentle relaxation, coriander for an exotic feeling, and grapefruit for an energizing mood!
I Want You Naked
With a very clear, suggestive brand name, I Want You Naked goes straight to the point: take a shower! Suitable for all skin types, the body scrubs of this brand combine the deep cleansing power of the precious sea and bitter salts with the intensive care of rich oils. There are two versions to choose from, which provide different sensory experiences: the I Want You Naked Body Scrub Lemongrass & Aloe Vera with a vitalizing scent, jojoba oil, and the regenerative power of green clay and the I Want You Naked Body Scrub Rose & St. John’s Herb Oil with a balancing, soothing fragrance, and pampering apricot kernel oil. The latter is the better alternative for sensitive skin types.
The minus417 brand offers vitamin-rich, antioxidative body scrubs for a wide variety of skin needs. Their common denominator: The Dead Sea, which cleans and nourishes the skin thoroughly either as salt or as mud with intensive mineral power. If you want a natural peeling with a firming effect, you are particularly well served with the minus417 Phyto Firming Mud. The mud has a detoxifying, regenerating, and anti-inflammatory effect on the skin.
To improve the skin texture, minus417 also offers the line minus417 Catharsis & Dead Sea Therapy based on microscopic salt grains from the Dead Sea in four pampering fragrance variants: Aromatic Kiwi & Mango, Aromatic Milk & Honey, Aromatic Lavender, and Aromatic Ocean.
With the promise to pass on traditional beauty rituals, Treets offers five body scrubs made from plant extracts that are traditionally used in different regions of the world. The regional oils are combined with the exfoliant properties of salt and sugar: while the Treets Energizing Secrets Body Sugar Scrub is enriched with the lush Tamanu and Sacha Inchi oil from the South American highlands, the Treets Revitalizing Ceremonies Body Salt Scrub offers that invigorating effect of Northern European, volcanic minerals and eucalyptus oil.
A feeling of alpine freshness can be experienced in the Treets Healing in Harmony Body Salt Scrub made from rosemary and grape seed oil, which in turn seems different from the Asian harmony of Treets Relaxing Chakra’s Body Sugar Scrub with rose and coconut oil. Africa is ultimately represented in the soothing warmth of karité and baobab oils with the Treets Nourishing Spirits Shea Butter Scrub.
With its Fruit Emotions line, Greenland offers a selection of body scrubs based on the coarse-grained Atlantic sea salt. The cleansing effect of the salt grains is combined with a wide variety of fruit extracts, which can provide diverse wellness experiences: If you are longing for the tropics, you will definitely want to try the Greenland Fruit Emotions Coconut-Tangerine Scrub Salt, with a stimulating coconut-tangerine scent.
Other fruity versions of the Greenland Fruit Emotions line can be found in the delicate Strawberry-Anise Scrub Salt with a light strawberry and anise scent, in the fresh Lime-Vanilla Scrub Salt with lime and vanilla, in the Papaya-Lemon Scrub Salt with a citrusy-sweet fragrance and ultimately in the Dragon Fruit-White Tea Scrub Salt with pitahaya and white tea extracts: what an agony of choice!
