Gloves in the Shower?

Is your skin screaming out for some love? Why not answer its call with an invigorating exfoliating experience? Exfoliation is the skin's natural process of shedding dead cells. A new layer of cells is formed at the bottom of the epidermis (that's fancy speak for skin), and it pushes the old skin cells to the surface where they eventually dislodge and flake away. By adding exfoliation to your daily routine, you can assist this natural process at the surface to encourage newer, healthier looking skin.

My favorite exfoliation tool is these bath gloves from The Body Shop. They're rough textured loofah gloves with little loops on the ends so you can hang them out to dry. If you don't dry them, they could get moldy which is totally disgusting and stinky.

Just get them wet in the shower, lather them up with your favorite soap or body wash and rub them all over your skin. They're gentle enough to use everyday and you can even use them on your face.

Fit's Tip: If you have sensitive skin, you might want to use the bath lily instead. The material is a little smoother and more gentle.

I like to use them with a bar of Dove soap, because it's so moisturizing.

Sounds ideal for those dry skin winter months. I've added them to my Christmas list!

Yeah, I love the ones from The Body Shop. Recently I bought a pair from Bath and Body Works, and they were much softer, and I didn't like them as much. Exfoliating is the best, especially in the winter when your skin gets so dry. These really help.

Not a bad idea.

I've seen them, but never tried them. I live exfoliation sugar scrubs. I bet they are kick ass when you use the gloves. Sounds like a good X-mas present (I don't want to even be thinking about gifts yet, but I guess it is time).

Oh yes. I use them everyday and even bring a pair when I go on trips.

I have a pair of the gloves, and they are wonderful for a closer shave on your legs. I exfoliate, then shave, and it makes my legs very smooth.
