Tanning season is here! But before you start laying out in the sun for hours or piling on that brown biscuity lotion, prep your skin with a full body exfoliation. Getting rid of that excess dead skin will mean you will tan much more evenly and the golden glow will stick around much longer - ideal situation if you ask me!
Invest in a great body scrub or exfoliator and you'll be a perfectly bronzed goddess in no time; here's five of the best around:
& Other Stories Floral Momento Body Scrub £7 A smoothing sugar scrub that polishes the skin sensitively. We love the fresh floral scent of violets, bergamot and peony that fill the room.
Korres Mint Tea Body Scrub £12 This organic scrub exfoliates with ground bamboo and smells divine - if you love mint that is! It hydrates the skin as well as buffing off all your impurities.
Original Source Blood Orange £2.69 If you don't have much time to set aside a full body exfoliation in your shower routine, opt for a gentle daily scrub. Switch out your shower gel for this a week before you jet of on hols and you'll be tan ready. Plus this one is vegan containing 100% natural fragrances.
Anatomicals The Buff Stuff Citrus Body Scrub £4 With a pink grapefruit smell and fun packaging we were already won over with this scrub. Coupled with it's walnut shell exfoliant that will leave you buffed and polished to perfection - it had to make the cut.
Frank Body Original Coffee Scrub £11.95 One of our faves by far. This natural coffee based scrub gets rid of dead skin in a flash and helps target cellulite and stretch marks. Use 3-5 times a week before tanning; a single packet should be enough to cover this. Trust us, you'll get hooked on this coffee wonder in no time!
