Forgetting to exfoliate before a holiday is almost on a par with forgetting to pack your bikinis. Now this may sound a tad dramatic but if you’re planning to get a nice even tan, you have to provide a silky smooth base. Even for those who prefer to slather on the fake tan as a pre-holiday booster should beware, as if you do so without exfoliating, your pasty complexion will soon be the least of your worries.

By exfoliating regularly you can prevent peeling and ingrown hairs, smooth away skin imperfections and even keep cellulite at bay. We’ve been scrubbing away to find out which exfoliating treatments work best (and smell best obviously).
