WHY YOU NEED TO REPLACE YOUR EXFOLIATING GLOVE
Do you exfoliate often but don’t know how often should you replace exfoliating gloves? Well, experts say that you should discard your old glove and use a new one every three to four weeks. It’s better to change it frequently not to let dead skin cells stay in the material.
The purpose of the exfoliating glove is to slough away dead skin cells, but even after rinsing, the remaining excess of dead skin cells will still be tangled within the viscose fibres of the glove.
The glove might still look ok but it is important to note the bacteria build-up is not obvious to the naked eye, although the glove is black, you won't be able to see the built up bacteria on it.
This may trigger your skin to break out and develop rashes such as contact dermatitis.
