Like exfoliating your face, it’s important to exfoliate your body a few times a week. A good body polish is hard to find since a lot are either too messy/greasy (Alba), smell like wet dog (Burt’s Bees), or are too pricey (Khiel’s Creme de Corp Body Polish; if you have the extra cash though, it’s the best of the best).
I’ve been using Giovanni’s Cool Mint Scrub and love it. It’s a huge tub, you don’t use much, and it leaves your skin really soft. I use it before I shave with my super awesome shave cream. Plus, it’s 1/3 of the price of Khiel’s (I buy it at my hippie co-op for $9 not $13 like their site) and lasts twice as long.
