The Best Tools and Accessories for Head-to-Toe Exfoliation
Your hands are your best tools for most things in life, but when it comes to your skin-care routine, we hate to say that they don’t always hold the top spot. An improper exfoliation routine can end up leaving you with dry skin, patchy flakes and an uneven texture. Sure, you can slap on a scrub and exfoliate with your hands, but there are devices out there that can do a more thorough job of sloughing away dead skin. Ahead, we share six of our favorite exfoliating tools that can be used from head to toe.
This uniquely textured exfoliating brush head helps to gently unclog pores and buff away dryness and rough patches on your skin’s surface to increase cellular turnover. Use it once or twice a week with your face wash to reveal a healthier, brighter complexion.
Having an exfoliating mitt on hand (quite literally) can help you scrub away dead flakes lingering on your skin’s surface. We like to pair ours with a gentle body wash to not only exfoliate the skin, but cleanse it at the same time. Not recommended for thin, sensitive or delicate skin — or if your skin is currently experiencing an allergic reaction or irritation.
Have you ever tried a loofah pad? Similar to a standard loofah, these poufs can help ease your cleansing and exfoliating routine while bathing. The main difference is that this loofah is formed in the shape of a small pad so you can hold it easier.
This gentle exfoliating konjac sponge gives you a luxurious experience while scrubbing away dirt and lingering grime on your skin. This sponge, made from konjac root and pink kaolin clay, leaves skin refreshed and soft.
If you have dry, callused feet and don’t feel like trekking to the nail salon for a pedicure, try out this at-home foot peel treatment. The foot mask can help remove dead skin and rough texture by causing your dead skin to peel and shed for a few days post-use. Once the shedding stops, your feet should feel softer and smoother than ever before.
The mid-to-lower parts of your back are undoubtedly hard to reach, which is why a body brush with a long handle is particularly useful. Gently cleanse, soften and exfoliate your skin with this body brush made from pure, natural sisal. You can also learn more about dry brushing here, including its benefits.
