We all have different methods of getting ourselves all cleaned up but nothing quite does the trick like a good bath sponge/loofah. While personal preference plays a major role in all of this, one thing we can all agree on is enjoying the lather of a brand new quality bath sponge that will leave your skin feeling fresh. Your skin deserves the best quality your money can buy so don’t compromise. To up your sponge game, try out our highly recommended bath sponges – We promise you won’t regret.
Pro Tip: Dermatologists recommend that you throw out your bath sponge every three to four weeks. This may seem a little unreasonable but these bath tools can easily become a breeding ground for bacteria, causing various bacterial skin infections.
Mesh bath sponge
You probably already own one and if not… You should know that they can really help clean delicate areas such as your neck and chest which barely get the exfoliation they need. Mesh bath sponges provide exfoliation, especially when the skin starts to flake up in the winter season. These sponges also help enhance circulation and encourage pores to expel oil and other impurities. As much as these sponges help exfoliate and cleanse the skin, clean your mesh sponge every week as they can easily trap and hold moisture which harbours germs and bacteria.
We tend not to pay much attention to the skin on our backs. The truth is, your back needs just as much love as the rest of your body. This particular area is probably the hardest to reach but back scrubbers make it easy. Back scrubbers can also play double-duty while exfoliating they can also help you massage your back. Ensure to use the attached hook to hang the back scrubber to your wall, allowing it to dry.
Konjac sponge – A game-changer
Konjac sponges are essential for buffing the face to complete flawlessness. These sponges are a 100% natural facial tool as they are made from vegetable fibres of the famous Japanese Konjac plant. The natural soft texture makes the facial sponge a lot softer and safer to use than any other facial sponge; they are just as effective when ridding the skin of any dead cells. This has to be our favourite skincare tool for sensitive or acne-prone skin, it is much kinder to your skin when exfoliating.
A gentle bath sponge
Using mesh sponges every day can become quite problematic for hypersensitive skin. Alternatively opt for a gentle, 100% hypoallergenic sponge. This can be used on adult and baby skin. This particular bath sponge is ideal for skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis as well as acne.
