With warmer days right around the corner, it’s almost time to don summer clothing and bare a little skin. Before you slip into those shorts and tanks though, get your legs and arms ready for show by sloughing off old winter skin with a natural scrub.

Hugo Naturals Sea Salt and Sugar Scrub in Sea Fennel and Passionflower 

My go-to scrub lately has been Hugo Naturals Sea Salt & Sugar Scrub in Sea Fennel and Passionflower. The combination of both salt and sugar provide the perfect amount of abrasiveness for exfoliating my legs and arms, while vitamin E and sweet almond and jojoba oils nourish and hydrate my skin. And unlike some other natural scrubs I’ve used, Hugo Naturals Sea Salt & Sugar Scrub doesn’t leave the bottom of my shower a mess. My favorite part about the scrub? The scent, which is refreshing, invigorating and (best yet) made with natural extracts instead of synthetic fragrance. In addition to fragrance, Hugo Naturals’ scrubs and other products never include any parabens, sulfates, silicones, phthalates, artificial colors, propylene glycol or petroleum products.

Because the sea salt and sugar separate from the oil between uses, the scrub must be mixed before it can be used, a messy process that’s actually more difficult than it sounds. The scrub also seems to go rather fast. Because I like the product so much, I’ve been rationing it by mixing up my routine with other natural scrubs—delaying the day it will inevitably run out.

Hugo Naturals Sea Salt & Sugar Scrub costs $12.99 and can be bought at retailers such as Whole Foods, Wegmans and others. Hugo Naturals also makes a variety of other scrubs, including Kumquat Brown Sugar Body Polish, French Lavender Dead Sea Salt Scrub and Grapefruit Himalayan Pink Salt Scrub.
