I have chronic dry skin. It's unfortunate and sometimes a pain, but as long as I take proper steps, I can prevent the itching and flaking that seems to happen - particularly in the winter months. That means moisturizing body washes and plenty of lotion slathered on after I shower.
Sometimes, though, it does not get the job done. So, what am I missing? How can I stop these flakes from appearing in my wake? Exfoliation, maybe? Obviously not often - once or twice a week is plenty with dry skin.
I have never tried any exfoliating chemicals or products until recently when I got the Exfolimate. I was desperate. And my desperation has paid off. It will continue to do so as long as I do not exfoliate on a regular basis. That is very important for people with dry skin. Over exfoliating will irritate and dry your skin out even more. When flakes start appearing, that is when you use this cloth.
The cloth is not soft. It is abrasive. So, please, use gently. Apply a small amount of body wash on the cloth and scrub your skin. After you get done, apply some lotion. Since the cloth helps get rid of those pesky skin flakes, you want to make sure your exfoliated skin is nice and soft.
You can toss this cloth in the washer, but do not place it in the dryer. It needs air drying. I am assuming that this cloth will stand the test of time. It is sturdy. Recommended.
