Why do you need a deep exfoliating body mitt?
Exfoliating helps to keep your skin silky soft and smooth by buffing away and removing dead skin cells. Your skin naturally sheds dead skin cells every 30 days or so. When this happens, new skin cells form the top layers of your skin.
A good exfoliating mitt can visibly removes dead skin instantly, you will be able to see it with your eyes. Unfortunately some cheap quality mitts from discount stores will only scratch the skin surface without any effective exfoliating results, leaving your skin dry and irritated, that's why you need to pick your exfoliating mitt very carefully.

Why Exfoliating Mitts are better than artificial exfoliating creams and scrubs?
It is not a surprise that everything that comes naturally is better than applying chemical exfoliating gels and creams on your skin, some of these products contain nasty materials which get absorbed into the skin when you apply it, some of these products can cause allergic reactions or serious skin problems especially on the long term.
The safest and most effective way to exfoliate your body is by cleaning it naturally, to get best results you need to soften the skin in warm water for 10 minutes prior to exfoliating, then start gently and deeply rubbing the mitt on your body, you will start to see dry dead skin peeling off like grey rolls, and if you apply fake tan, you will be able to remove any old patches of fake tan allowing a fresh clean skin to reapply tanning on.
How Often Should You Exfoliate?
We recommend exfoliating your skin once every 1-2 weeks as part of your skincare routine. Exfoliation is all about balance – whilst it’s important to buff away dead skin cells you also want to take care not to strip away too many of your skin’s natural oils.
By maintaining a weekly/fortnightly exfoliating regime, you can keep dry, dull skin at bay without stripping away those necessary natural oils, depending on your skin type, you may need to exfoliate less or more often. oily skin usually requires frequent cleansing.
What are the Benefits of Exfoliating?
Exfoliation not only rids your face and body of dead skin, it also helps with other skincare imperfections and improve the effectiveness of your regular skincare routine so you can benefit from healthy, glowing skin.
The top benefits of regular exfoliation include:
Minimise Blemished Skin and Breakouts
If you have acne-prone or blemished skin, a good exfoliating routine could be just what you need. If you fall victim to break-outs, exfoliating can help unclog pores to minimise the formation of whiteheads and blackheads.
If you suffer with acne or break-outs, you might think exfoliating isn’t for you. However, a gentle exfoliating regime can help breakdown bacteria and speed up the production of new skin cells.
When exfoliating, take extra care not to scrub your face or body too hard. Otherwise, you may find your skin becomes too dried out which can result in the production of excess sebum and so… the cycle of blemishes begins.
Instead, stick to the once a week routine (or once every 2 weeks) and use a light moisturiser to re-hydrate your skin after exfoliating.
Improve Skin Hydration and Moisture Levels
If you’re guilty of neglecting to exfoliate your skin, it’s likely that your skin is also suffering from dehydration. As layers of dead skin cells build it, it can be harder for your skin to absorb the moisturiser you apply.
By regularly exfoliating you will be able to buff away those dead skin cells to remove dry, flaky skin. Follow up by applying a moisturiser to the new skin cells to help improve moisture absorption and reap the benefits of healthy, hydrated skin.
Challenge Your Skin's Ageing Process
As you get older, your skin will age. You may notice darker pigmentation spots, reduced elasticity and rough patches on your skin.
Exfoliating is beneficial for breaking up these pigmented cells and removing build-up of dry skin to help retain your skins healthy glow and smooth, soft texture as you mature. With a regular exfoliating and moisturising regime, you will soon notice your complexion transform from dull and dry to soft and glowing.
Stimulate Blood Flow
Did you know exfoliating your skin increases blood circulation? The motion of exfoliating stimulates blood flow which in turn helps flush out toxins.
Exfoliating your skin is one of the best ways to stimulate blood flow and lymph drainage. This improved blood circulation minimises the appearance of cellulite, improves skin elasticity and will enhance your all over body glow and radiance.
Prepare Your Skin for Tanning (real or fake!)
Whether you’re planning on fake tanning or soaking up the rays in the sunshine, exfoliating is an important pre-tanning step.
Removing dead skin cells by exfoliating makes sure you have a smooth, even skin surface ready for applying fake tan. This will help your tan look it’s absolute best and prevent it from going patchy.
Similarly, exfoliating before tanning in the sun will help your tan last longer and look more even by removing dry skin.
If you plan to exfoliate before tanning, make sure you use a moisturiser after exfoliating and use a sun protecting moisturiser when tanning to keep your body hydrated and protected.
