Korean Exfoliating Bath Washcloth Italy Towel Songwol Towel
The Korean Italy Towel is basically a cloth that is 100% viscose (viscose has several uses, but is most commonly used to make fabrics such as rayon). Korean Italy Towels are abrasive (think sandpaper), which is why they work so well for exfoliation. Similar to sandpaper, they also come in different levels of coarseness. The pink colored towel, for example, is the least abrasive and is commonly used on the face. The green towel is the most universal and can be used on most areas of the body (except for “sensitive” or “private” areas, of course). The yellow towel is the most abrasive and I would suspect that it’s more popular among men, or for use on areas that can handle a little more exfoliation, like the feet.
The Korean Italy Towel works similarly to other exfoliation mitts, such as the Baiden Mitten. I have not used the Baiden Mitten, so I can’t attest as to whether these products are the same (the folks behind the Baiden Mitten are also not very forthcoming as to the type of material that the mitten is made from). The major difference between the Korean Italy Towel and the Baiden Mitten (that I can see, anyway) is definitely the price – I purchased the Korean Italy Towels for around $12 for a pack of 8 towels, whereas the Baiden Mitten goes for a whopping $50 or more per mitten.
Why would you use this?
Exfoliating is a great way to rejuvenate the skin. The process removes dead skin and build-up/debris from pores, making your skin feel super smooth. With regular use, it may help lessen ingrown hairs and it may help those with keratosis pilaris (those little bumps that often show up on the back of arms, thighs, butt, etc.). After exfoliating, skin tends to have a more youthful glow (it helps to get rid of that “ashy” appearance). Because it unclogs pores, it can help tackle those pesky blackheads and it can help reduce the occurrence of acne in some cases. It also helps your skin to be more accepting of other treatments (whether you’re applying a cream, lotion, oil, self tanner, etc.), so it can help make your other products more effective or be applied more evenly. Some have also reported that exfoliating can help with fine lines and wrinkles.
The benefits of using the Korean Italy Towel over other exfoliating products include:
the cost (it’s inexpensive)
it’s a relatively clean process (aside from the peeling skin) – it doesn’t use any messy lotion-y type things
it could be a great option for those who are sensitive to certain ingredients/chemicals commonly found in other skincare products#Koreanitalytowel#Koreanbathtowel#songwoltowel
