To better absorb our body moisturizers, serums and creams that will undoubtably save our skin during cold winter months, we first must get rid of the dead skin cells that reside on our top layer of skin. Enter body exfoliators. While they’re great to reveal smoother skin beneath the surface, they also help revitalize and refresh by stimulating lymphatic drainage and blood flow. Giving the skin on your body a good in-shower resurfacing with these latest standouts is a win-win.
