Scrub Gloves

While scrubbing your skin with a loofah can lead to micro-tears and support bacterial growth, scrub gloves provide a safe and effective way to gently exfoliate. Once you get the hang of it, using them can be an incredibly satisfying experience.

Just make sure that your body and the glove are thoroughly soaked in water before you begin. This will ensure that the pores are properly dilated and your skin softened before you start removing the dead skin cells.

Exfoliating Gloves for Dry Skin

The Renaissance Glove is made with a special fabric that gently and safely exfoliates the skin, making it a great option for those with dry skin. Just make sure the skin is in contact with lukewarm or warm water (in the shower, bath, etc.) for 3 to 5 minutes so the pores open and softens. Then put on the glove, get it wet, and rub it up and down your body in a circular motion. You may see a bunch of tiny gray rolls on the glove that look like chocolate curls or pilling on a wool sweater — that’s normal, and it means the exfoliation was successful.

You can use the gloves as often as twice a week, though if you’re not careful you can overdo it and irritate the skin. Be sure to rinse off the glove with antibacterial soap and wring it out well before you put it back on your hands.

It’s also important to apply a moisturizer after using the gloves travel makeup organizer so that the freshly exfoliated skin is properly hydrated and protected. Just be careful not to over-moisturize, as that can also lead to a compromised skin barrier, causing the skin to become sensitive and prone to infection.
