5 Body Polishes to Fix All Your Skin Issues
Body polishes work similarly to body scrubs. They exfoliate the skin to buff away dead skin cells, sebum, and grime, offering brightening and smoothing effects. At Rainbow, we offer a selection of body polishes that all offer a variety of benefits.
Whether you’ve got dry skin, sensitive skin, or acne-prone skin, we’ve got a polish for every skin type — and concern. From dryness to sagging and cellulite, here are five body polishes to fix all your skin issues.
What to Look for in a Body Polish
Body polishes come in all shapes and forms. Most importantly, you want to look for a polish with a gentle resurfacing ingredient such as sea salt, sugar, fruit enzymes, or jojoba beads. You’ll want to avoid polishes with large particles like coffee grounds or walnut shells, which can irritate skin.
Next, make sure it’s enriched with nourishing ingredients that’ll hydrate and soothe, such as shea butter, coconut oil, aloe, green tea, vitamin E, and olive oil.
Polishes are typically physical exfoliants, which means they rely on small particles to buff away dead cells and dirt. Some formulas may contain chemical exfoliants such as glycolic acid, lactic acid, and salicylic acid, but it’s uncommon.

What to Do After Polishing Your Skin
Once your skin is freshly buffed with your chosen body treatment, the next step is to slather on a hydrating lotion to seal in moisture for long-lasting silkiness. If you have a skin condition like acne, the first step would be to apply your topical treatments (i.e. cleansers, serums etc.) before going in with the lotion. Since polishing preps skin for enhanced product absorption, it really is the best time to pat them on.
Finally, finish up with a generous layer of sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher. Exfoliated skin is typically extra sensitive, which is why it’s so important to coat your skin in sun protection before leaving the house.
According to dermatologists, some polish treatments (provided that they’re super gentle) can be helpful to those with skin conditions such as eczema and keratosis pilaris. Pick one of the polishes above to start addressing your skin concerns. Whether it be dryness, dullness, cellulite, or sagging, we’ve got just the formula that can help.
Especially if you’ve got delicate skin, even the best body scrubs can be too harsh. Even more so if they contain irritating ingredients like essential oils. We recommend sticking to a body polish instead, as polishes tend to be gentler on the skin — yet equally as effective.
