My clients are DM’ing me and asking me if they should throw out their makeup and skin care as we started a new year and part of these questions included using these. I knew the answer right away is “No”.
Body loofahs, mini face loofahs and those fluffy colorful scrubbers for body & 🛁 bath. They say they exfoliate the skin and yes they maybe add some colorful fun to your bath or shower but that’s it. They are not the best thing to use. And they are a breading ground for bacteria and fungi to grow. They collect moisture too. They may even cause skin infections. They hurt the skin not help the skin! And IF you happen to have acne or blemished skin they really are not your friend!
But I do love to brush my skin with a body brush GENTLY! I love ❤️ what they call “Dry“ brushing and exfoliating treatments like they do in Turkish SPAS and other places around the globe.
So if you love your skin don’t use those natural loofahs and squishy scrubbers. Instead I recommend a good quality cotton washcloth. They are your face and body’s worker 🐝 bee!
So… you know what to do. Go to your bathroom and just throw those abrasive things out!
