Ready to kiss dead skin goodbye? Dive into our foolproof guide on how to exfoliate like a pro. Say hello to radiant, smooth skin!
Step 1: Get Steamy
First things first, hop into a warm shower or soak in a bath. The longer you stay, the better! Warm water opens up your pores, priming your skin for a deeper exfoliation experience.

Soak your Silky Touch Exfoliating Body & Face Glove in water. Wring it out well. Exit the waterfall, but leave your skin slightly damp.

Time to bring on the friction! Using firm, long strokes, scrub away until you witness dead skin bidding adieu. Keep it soap-free; you want the glove to be the star here.
Quick Reminder List
Long Strokes: Aim for consistent, long strokes.
No Soap: Let the glove do its magic, no slippery helpers needed.
Visual Feedback: The appearance of peeling dead skin is your cue.
Step 4: Rinse Off and Luxuriate
Once you're done, rinse off all that exfoliated skin. Elevate your aftercare with a luxe moisturizer or better yet, The Banyo Signature Body Oil.
Step 5: Mitt Maintenance
Cleanliness is next to godliness! Hand wash your glove with a gentle cleanser. Then, air dry it to keep it fresh and ready for your next session.
Step 6: Keep It Up
Make this a weekly ritual. Trust us, your skin will thank you!
