Whether you’re prepping for fake tan or are aiming for super-smooth skin, there’s a scrub to suit you

Apply this fragrant scrub in two stages: first to dry skin where the salts will get rid of any roughness; wet the skin and the rosemary-scented paste takes on a creamy texture.

£12.90, kikocosmetics.com

5. Kora exfoliating cream

Aussie Miranda Kerr has launched her own range of body products. This cream may not give you model looks, but the granules are so fine that it can be used on the face and body.

If only our summers were as warming as a Rituals scrub. Sea salt combined with ginger and eucalyptus give the body a warm, tingling sensation. Central heating for your soul.
