Skincare has always been the number one priority of my daily beauty routine. While I do wear makeup daily, I keep it pretty quick and simple. Same thing goes for skincare. I’m a busy, working mom but there are two things NEVER skip —washing my face every night and wearing sunscreen on my face everyday.
My skin has always been problematic and benefits from frequent exfoliation. Recently I was introduced to MicrodermaMitt and I am loving their products!
Have you ever heard of Hammam? It’s a Turkish traditional bath house practice that uses an exfoliating mitt. It’s typically made from silk floss fibers that help slough off dead skin cells leaving your skin soft and glowing. As an added bonus, as you massage your skin, it boosts blood flow and increases circulation. Additionally, your skincare products are more effective after exfoliating your skin.
You can get this spa-like treatment at home with MicrodermaMitt products.
MicrodermaMitt offers exfoliating mitts for face and body as well as a makeup remover mitt. The face and body mitts are very similar, however the face mitt is a bit more gentle for the more sensitive skin on the face.
If you want smoother, healthier skin and are ready to upgrade your at home skincare routine, you need these products! Using just water, these mitts clean your pores and remove dead skin cells. While you gently scrub away dry skin, you stimulate blood flow and invigorate you skin with the natural floss and special weave of the mitt that won’t scratch, irritate or damage the skin.
After the very first use you’ll notice improved skin texture, less bumps and scaly patches. These also help decrease the likeliness of ingrown hairs! You’ll notice that your moisturizers and other skin care products absorb better into the skin as well.
These mitts may help clear skin conditions like keratosis pilaris or chicken skin, ingrown hair, cellulite and may also help decrease acne by keeping pores clear of dead skin.
I find these mitts far superior to other exfoliating products like salt scrubs, loofahs, body brushes, sponges and more. Believe me, I’ve tried them all! I love how gentle the mitts are while still being very effective.
If you use self tanners, these mitts are ideal for prepping your skin. You’ll get a longer lasting, less streaky tan with no dark spots!
I love that these mitts have loops on them so they can be hung to dry. They dry very quickly. I have a hook in my shower that I hang them on. The loops indicate which is the face mitt and which is the body mitt so you don’t get them mixed up.
The only downside of these mitts for me is that they should be used with water only for maximum effectiveness. It’s not a huge deal but this adds an extra step for me since I have to exfoliate first and then wash again with soap instead of being able to do both in one step. I like to keep things really quick and simple but this is in no way a deal breaker for me. The extra step is worth it as these mitts exceed my expectations for good exfoliation. Both of these products I use in the shower only.
Here are the directions for using the mitts:
First, run yourself a warm bath or shower for several minutes. Think of it as your pre-glow-up pampering time. Once you’re all soaked, it’s time for the mitt magic! Dampen the mitt with warm water, then rub it up and down your body using long, firm strokes. Keep scrubbing away, moving side to side and up and down until you see those old, tired skin cells rolling away. Do this for each section of your body (Use the face mitt for your face). We’re exfoliating, not sandpapering! Once you’re glowing like a goddess, wash off with your usual soap to get rid of the excess skin cells and impurities. Pat yourself dry, and drench your skin in your favorite body oil and/or moisturizer.
The Makeup Remover I use nightly and it is extremely effective. I was shocked at how well this works. Normally I just use a standard washcloth and a gentle cleanser. The directions for the Makeup Remover cloth say specifically NOT to use soap. I was skeptical but I gave it a try. You just wet the cloth with warm water and use it just like a washcloth. As you can see from the photo above, it took off my makeup, no problem!
The mitt is double sided so I gave my face a second pass with the other side, concentrating on my eyes. This easily removed my mascara and all of the remaining makeup on my face. Very impressive!
This cloth is gentle. It doesn’t contain ANY ingredients, dyes or chemicals. It doesn’t leave behind any fuzz and it dries quickly. Just hand wash with gentle soap and air dry to use it again the next night. It can be machine washed which I will probably do at the end of each week. This product is for removing makeup and is not meant for exfoliation but you can use the exfoliation mitt afterwards.
MicrodermaMitts are eco-friendly because they can be used again and again! Save yourself some money by giving yourself the spa treatment at home! You can find out more and buy MicrodermaMitt products on Amazon!
