The Korean washcloth
So while others may turn to fine terry-cloth wands and high-tech sonic cleansing devices to shed their winter skin, our mind has called up the Korean washcloth, a simple exfoliating mitt that does the trick.
For optimal results, (ie. visibly see dead skin cells), follow our four step routine exactly.
1: Soften your skin with water only - Go into the shower, bath or steam for 5-10 minutes. Do not apply any soaps or lotions to the body. The fabric relies on friction. Soaps and locations create a film which makes the skin surface too slippery for the fabric to grab the skin.
2: Step away from water - Turn off the shower and squeeze away excess water from the mitt, leaving the mitt slightly damp.
3: Removes layers of dead skin - Exfoliate using vigorous, upward and downward strokes until you see dead skin cells roll away. Repeat for each section of your body. Apply pressure for optimal results.
4: Moisturize - After you step out of the shower, use your favorite lotion or oil, and notice it will be absorbed much better than before.
