This summer, body care routines are all the rage, and it’s the perfect time to elevate yours.

Just like we’ve mastered our skincare routines, it’s time to give our bodies the same love and attention. Whether you’re soaking up the sun at the beach, lounging by the pool, or enjoying the warm weather, having the right body care essentials is key to achieving that radiant summer glow.

From exfoliating scrubs to nourishing creams, I’ve curated the best products to help you perfect your body care routine. Let’s dive into these must-have summer essentials and get your skin smooth, glowing, and ready to shine all season long!

Dry Brush

If you’re not on the dry brush trend yet, you should be! Dry brushing stimulates the lymphatic system, exfoliates your skin, increases circulation, and can even reduce cellulite. Not to mention, a dry brush is super inexpensive, making it the perfect addition to your summer body care routine!

Exfoliating Peel Feet Masks

Ok— talk about unaesthetic but amazing products… I absolutely love these foot masks for getting my feet summer-ready. Because body care absolutely includes your toes! Basically, you leave these masks on your feet for a bit, and then a few days later all of the dead skin on your feet completely peels off. Kind of gross, but amazing for summer! Perfect for flaunting those cute sandals!

Truly Skincare Unicorn body polish

Not only is this body polish super aesthetically pleasing, It’s packed with nourishing ingredients like chia seed and vegan collagen. A body polish is like a combo between body butter and an exfoliating scrub, exfoliating, hydrating and plumping all in one.

Nopalera Hibiscus Cactus Sugar Scrub

Cactus hibiscus is the PERFECT summer scent! Not to mention, this scrub is a 3-in-1 product that cleanses, exfoliates, and moisturizes with natural ingredients like cactus and hibiscus.

Exfoliating shower mitt

To get the most out of your exfoliating sugar scrub, you’ll also want an exfoliating shower mitt to apply it! This is a staple in my summer shower routine, perfect for sloughing away dead skin and boosting circulation, giving me that summer glow all over.

Pistache Pistachio Oil Hydrating Body Butter

Pistachio is one of my favorite summer scents, and this body butter not only smells amazing, but comes with the hydrating benefits of pistachio oil, which will leave your skin feeling incredibly soft and smooth!

Flamingo Razor Set

You definitely need a good razor to get you through the summer! I love my Flamingo razor set so I would highly recommend it (read my review here). It features a flexible hinge and five sharp blades for a super smooth, close shave, and the ergonomic handle makes it so easy to use. My legs have never felt smoother!

Truly Skincare Anti-Cellulite Body Serum

Just like a serum for your face, a body serum is a great way to add extra nutrients to your body care routine. This anti-cellulite serum is packed with powerful ingredients like retinol and vitamin C, which help reduce the appearance of cellulite and improve skin texture. Just remember to use a sunscreen if you use this product, since it contains retinol!

NUXE Shimmer Body Oil

Rather than just lotion, I love adding a little sparkle with a shimmery body oil for summer. This bronze shimmer oil from the French brand Nuxe Huile will instantly make you feel a little tanner and more toned, perfect for the summer!

Vanilla Whipped Shea Butter

When it comes to body butter, my favorite choice is simply pure shea butter with a scent. Shea butter is full of nutrients and antioxidants making it the perfect all-over product for your summer skincare. Not to mention, you can use it on your hair too!

Bio Oil

A tried and true classic, I always keep Bio Oil in my summer skincare routine. Personally, I love bio oil for my scars and stretch marks, which alway seem to get more visible in the summer. Bio oil contains Vitamins A and E, and natural oils like lavender and chamomile. Not to mention, it’s clinically proven for scars, stretch marks, and uneven skin tone. This goes a long way for my summer body!

Lemon Whipped Shaving Cream

Love the idea of adding a little luxury into your body care routine with this whipped shaving cream. The fresh lemon scent is invigorating and perfect for a refreshing summer shave!

Fur Oil Ingrown Hair Treatment

If you struggle with ingrown hairs, the fur oil is a lifesaver! It’s formulated with natural oils like clary sage and tea tree, which effectively prevent and treat ingrown hairs. It’s gentle enough for all areas and has a light, pleasant scent – a must-have for summer!

Kojic acid Dark Spot Removing Soap Bars

A simple but great product— If you struggle with dark spots & uneven skin in the summer, these kojic acid soap bars work wonders! Kojic acid is known for its skin-lightening properties, and are great at fading dark spots.

Diamond Dust Mineral Sunscreen lotion

I’m a huge fan of a great mineral sunscreen for every day in the summer. And what’s better than a regular mineral sunscreen? A mineral sunscreen with added shimmer! This sunscreen will keep you protected while you glisten in the sun. And, it’s free from harmful chemicals like octinoxate and oxybenzone.

Cabana Girl Guava Coconut Bubble Bath & Shower Gel

I’m a bubble bath year round kinda girl, so I love this philosophy guava coconut bubble bath/ shower gel combo! It creates a rich, luxurious lather that leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed. The guava coconut scent is absolutely delightful – perfect for a little summer escape!

Glazed Donut After Shave Oil

A good after-shave oil goes a long way on the bikini area. This one from Truly Beauty is formulated with soothing ingredients like coconut, passionfruit, and vitamin E, providing hydrating and helping with razor bumps.

Lume Toasted Coconut Natural Deodorant

If you’re on the lookout for a good all-natural deodorant, Lume is definitely one to try! It’s aluminum-free and effective at neutralizing odor, with a delicious toasted coconut scent that’s perfect for summer. Plus, it’s gentle on the skin— so you can use it all over, not just on your armpits!

Saltair Natural Deodorant in Island Orchid

Another great choice for natural deodorant is the Saltair Natural Deodorant. It’s made with natural ingredients and the scent is so amazing with notes of mandarin, jasmine, and drift wood. It’s perfect for those hot summer days when I want to feel fresh and confident.

Sol De Janeiro Bum Bum Cream

I obviously had to include the Sol De Janeiro Brazillian Bum Bum cream in this list, a summer staple! What many people don’t know about this viral bodycare product is that It’s enriched with guaraná extract and caffeine, which help visibly tighten and smooth your skin.

High Roller Ingrown Hair Roller

For ingrown hairs, razor burns, and strawberry legs, this high roller ingrown hair roller is a life saver! It’s a bit more intense than the other after shave products on this list, formulated with glycolic and salicylic acid for maximum results. I love this one because the roller design makes it super easy to apply.

b.tan tanned AF tan intensifier

b.tan tanned AF tan intensifier

If you love to get a tan outside in the summer, you will love this dry spray oil from b.tan. It actually speeds up the tanning process, so you can spend less time in the sun for the same, glowy results. The result is a beautiful, sun-kissed look that I absolutely love for summer!

Iced Coffee Scented Exfoliating Sugar Scrub with Shea butter

If you’re an iced coffee lover like me, this iced coffee scented sugar scrub is the perfect start to your summer day. It’s infused with real coffee grounds and shea butter, which exfoliate and deeply moisturize your skin, leaving it smooth and invigorated.
