Having smooth skin is one of those seemingly unattainable beauty goals for many—us included. Whether it’s due to keratosis pilaris (KP), psoriasis, cellulite, stretch marks, or acne scars, it can sometimes feel impossible to achieve even skin. Buffing out stubbornly textured skin can be challenging. Luckily, there are some hard-working skin smoothing products with potent active ingredients and strong before and afters that can help.

Kopari KP Body Bumps Be Gone Smoothing Body Lotion With 3% AHA ($24)

This recently launched lotion is a great product for those with KP or other textured skin concerns. The formula is expertly balanced with exfoliating three percent AHA and hydrating shea butter, sweet almond oil and aloe leaf juice. This balance ensures the product resurfaces skin and reduces bumps without irritation all while hydrating.

U Beauty Resurfacing Body Compound ($128)

We fell in love with this recent launch, the same way we did with its facial counterpart. It works by improving the skin’s natural desquamation process, optimizing skin turnover and refining skin texture for a more uniform appearance.

Soft Services Buffing Bar ($28)

This crowd-pleaser is for skin that loves weekly moderate-to-intense physical exfoliation. Soft Services recommends it for anyone with KP, stubborn ingrown hairs, generally rough, bumpy skin texture or simply for the satisfaction of sloughing away dead skin to reveal the softer skin below.

MUTHA The Nudist Body Scrub ($68)

Deliciously scented and deeply effective, this is a delightful shower companion. Brown sugar exfoliates dead skin, while coconut, avocado, jojoba, sweet almond and castor seed oils hydrate. It also contains probiotics and postbiotics to help support the skin barrier during exfoliation.

Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Body Polish ($56)

Clinical studies found that 94 percent of users say the polish immediately revealed silky, smooth, baby-soft skin, and 97 percent noticed an improvement in the appearance of bumps and rough patches. It’s a powerhouse of physical, chemical and enzymatic exfoliation.

Fur KP Body Scrub ($38)

KP and ingrown hairs are no match for this powerful yet soothing scrub. The formula features 14 percent AHAs as well as physical perlite exfoliants to buff, while sunflower seed oil prevents irritation and reduces redness, a common concern with KP.

Frank Body Original Coffee Scrub ($17)

Frank Body offers a widely beloved affordable, and effective scrub. Robusta Coffee stimulates blood flow and promotes collagen and sea salt exfoliates. It’s great for just about everything—breakouts, scars and marks.

Skinfix KP + PsO Smoothing Body Treatment ($50)

Another exciting new KP-combatting launch, this body treatment features a unique combination of chemical exfoliants and barrier-restoring activities to improve both KP and psoriasis-prone skin.

Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Body Scrub ($42)

The cream version of this is a cult classic, but might we recommend trying the body scrub option as well? It features caffeine-rich guarana, cupuaçu seeds, sugar crystals, coconut oil and a hypnotic scent.

Nécessaire The Body Exfoliator in Eucalyptus ($30)

This weekly treatment has both chemical and physical exfoliating properties. Bamboo, charcoal and pumice slough away dry skin, while glycolic, lactic and salicylic acids help remove dead skin cells. Meanwhile, antioxidants, essential fatty acids and amino acids soften skin. If you have sensitive skin, opt for the fragrance-free version.
