Sometimes we can all be guilty of not taking enough care and attention on our body care as much as we do our skin care. And keeping on top of your body exfoliation will not only leave you with smooth and soft results, but it’ll provide better absorption for the rest of your body care! Do we have your attention now? Let’s get into the best exfoliator for the legs.

What a good exfoliant for the legs will do is help encourage new cell turnover by removing dead skin cells and allowing new fresh ones to push through and banish dull-looking skin.

We’ll take you through a few different methods of how to exfoliate your legs and the best recommended products for the job!


A physical sugar scrub

This is the heavy-duty scrubs in the body care world! They do a deep exfoliation of the legs to lift away dead skin cells and encourage cell renewal for silky smooth skin. A little goes a long way with sugar scrubs too, take a small amount and massage into the skin in circular motions.

SUGAR BUFF Smoothing Body Scrub, £25

Our recently re-vamped sugar scrub just got a new larger size and recyclable packaging too! Our Mediterranean inspired sugar scrub has a skin-boosting blend of hydrating olive and grapeseed oil, fig, pomegranate, vitamin E plus a relaxing cocktail of essential oils. Not only is this scrub deeply exfoliating for your skin but it leaves it wonderfully soft, smooth and fragrant.

A gel scrub

A softer version than the sugar scrub, this gel-scrub hybrid gives the cooling and smooth ease of a gel but the extra exfoliating benefits your skin will love. These scrubs are great options for more regular exfoliation as they’re not as harsh on the skin but will still give you that instant result.
