How to Use the Nettle, Cotton and Copper Exfoliating Glove
Using the Glove on Dry Skin
Rub the glove gently on the skin of the body, lightening the pressure on more sensitive areas of skin. Do not use the glove on very delicate skin such as on the neck and face unless you have a very light touch (use a sea sponge instead!) In a dry exfoliation, you will get all the benefits of the skin tingling massage, the removal of dead skin, improved lymph flow and cellulite reduction but it is best to wash the skin, shower or bath to fully remove any skin flakes if you need to.
Using the Glove for Wet Exfoliation
A wet exfoliation has additional benefits as the skin is softened with the water and flakes will wash off and so the exfoliated skin has a better finish and appearance. Take the glove in the shower or bath with you. It is best to prepare the skin first with our Naturally Anti-Microbial Hemp Oil Soap, as the soap lifts the dead skin from the living healthy layer and less friction is needed to obtain really smooth and supple skin. Plus the soap deeply cleans the skin too, so you can achieve everything in one go.
How to care for the Natural Exfoliating Glove
It is easy – you can wash it in the washing machine at 50°C. I would advise turning the glove inside out, so that the looped outer texture doesn’t snag on the other washing in the load.
The fabric is stretchy, so it will fit any adult hand.
It is a madder-pink with a cream cuff.
Properties of the Materials Used in the Weaving of these Anti Microbial Exfoliating Gloves
Sting nettles are the ultimate eco fibre! They require little encouragement to grow will happily grow on exposed wet soils where other plants shrink. Nettles are resistant to pests and diseases and they produce a fiber which stronger than linen and even stronger again when wet. Nettle fiber has a good resistance to bacteria and mildew and the fibers are blended with cotton fibers to make it easier to spin.
Copper is among the most hygienic of metals, known for its ability to kill a wide range of moulds, fungi, mildew, viruses and bacteria – rapidly!
