This winter I’ve really struggled with dry skin. I have dry skin all year around, but this winter it’s been worse than normal and even though I’ve been applying copious amounts of moisturiser and body lotion, my skin is still so dry. For my face and neck, I like to use a chemical exfoliator like the Pixi Glow Tonic or Superdrug Optimum Phytoenergise Glycolic Cleansing Pads as they’re gentle yet effective at sloughing away dead skin cells. They’re also a quick step to slot into your skincare routine, but they make a noticable difference to the skin. For the body I always use body scrubs at least once a week, but this winter they just weren’t cutting it, so I decided to try the So Eco Exfoliating Gloves.
“So Eco Exfoliating Gloves are perfect for buffing skin for a brighter, refined look. The gloves expertly exfoliate to slough away dry, dead skin cells helping the body to feel smooth and radiant.“
What are exfoliating gloves?
Exfoliating gloves are typically used damp, on wet skin to eliminate dead skin cells leading to better cellular regeneration, skin oxygenation, micro circulation and lymphatic circulation. Not only can they help to softer, smoother skin, but they can also help prevent ingrown hairs so it’s recommended to use them prior to shaving or waxing. The texture of the gloves are a little rough so it’s best to not use them on broken or irritated skin, but they can be used alone or alongside a body scrub or body wash to cleanse and exfoliate the body.
The So Eco Exfoliating Gloves £5 are a lovely bright teal colour, and they have a nice amount of stretch. Some exfoliating gloves can be on the tighter side but these gloves have an elasticated band at the base of the gloves. They do have the typical rough texture when dry, but when damp they do become a little softer, and they work amazingly well at buffing the skin. I particularly like using them on my legs before shaving, and my knees and elbows.
I like that they’re so quick and simple to use, and you don’t have to use them with a body scrub. If you wear fake tan, exfoliating gloves are ideal for removing any remnants of fake tan before applying a new layer to minimise any streaks or uneven patches. For £5 they’re budget friendly, and they leave the skin so smooth and soft in a matter of seconds.
