With all the sanitizing and stress we’ve all been going through lately, we recommend body scrubs for dry skin as the ideal remedy. It may sound counterintuitive, but hear us out.
Exfoliating with sugar, salt, and fruit grains might not be one’s top-of-mind ingredients for flaky skin. In fact, using the wrong choice of products may indeed worsen it. But if you stick with the right moisturizing scrubs that exfoliate and nourish your skin, the results can be amazing. Not only are you sloughing off dead skin cells and allowing your skincare products to absorb better, your skin will also be given a taste of the moisture it needs even before stepping out of the shower.
That said, not all scrubs possess that kind of double-duty power, so we’ve rounded up some of our favorite scrubby skin quenching solutions.
Perfect for a “deep and detoxifying cleanse”. After incorporating this into our routine (best to use it twice a week), we noticed how our skin turned silky smooth—and might we say even a bit “glowy”.

Want that head-to-toe spa glow? Our Vanilla + Coconut Body polish has all the bases covered with nutrient rich salt from the Dead Sea to slough away ashy dead skin +100% certified organic coconut oil to rehydrate + improve barrier function especially good for eczematous skin that needs all the defences it can get to keep skin soft, supple + silky smooth 💦
Another favourite from Ecococo—what can we say, they make great scrubs! This one has lavender as one of its main ingredients, which aside from having a heavenly scent, also combats eczema and psoriasis. If you’re not so keen on lavender though, there are also other variants to choose from: mango, lime, and guava.
You can’t go wrong with a scrub that contains coffee grounds, shea butter, and coconut oil. Its blend of coffee and lemongrass scents can be extremely energizing.

This popular polish from Dear Klairs was formulated for facial use, but this works amazing for body use too—black sugar melts sebum trapped in pores, while Shea Butter and vitamins A & E moisturize skin.
