21 Body Scrubs That Will Save Your Skin This Winter

There's never a right and wrong time to exfoliate your body. Whether it's the middle of summer — the temperature pushing 100 — or the dead of winter, getting rid of dry, itchy skin is always a good idea.
Unfortunately, right now, it is winter, and our skin is begging for salvation from the brick-cold winds outside. Now is as good a time as any to take extra precautions against rough, dehydrated skin, so we're investing the rest of our holiday budget in full-body scrubs that keep flakes away.
To help you devise your winter-skin survival guide, our editors rounded up a list of their favorite exfoliators, scrubs, and body polishes. From high-end grabs to drugstore staples, here's everything we plan on using from now until... well, hopefully not much longer.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
