Hammam Cloth Mitt
I'm not a skin care professional. That said, I discovered hammam cloth a few years ago and have been using my mitt since. It's amazing for those of us who struggle with the need for some serious exfoliation. If I don't remove that layer of dry, dead skin cells (and the five thousand layers of lotion) I don't see relief from my dry, itchy skin. It's like getting a pedicure - you soak in warm water, then remove the dead, dry skin. We've all done that, right?
The gist of it is basically this: take a nice soak in either bath (preferred) or shower for at least 10 mintutes. The goal is to soften the dry layers of skin. Don't use oils or anything else - you need traction. Now, slip on the hammam mitt and start working it over an area. What you want to see is little rolls of skin coming off. These little rolls of skin seem to enable more action, so don't rinse yet. Be firm but not too aggressive, at your comfort level, work your way over the body and then rinse. Start lighter. You can always repeat at another time.
Clean your mitt with soap and water, hang to dry and pamper your newly exposed and very soft skin. Personally, I wouldn't use more than once a week.
