For all of you wanting to buy the towel, I found this:

u/seven3true · 95 pointsr/wheredidthesodago

I had to take a screen shot, put it in photoshop, get rid of the slight sepiatone, change the image to CMYK, fuck with the curves and other shit, and finally found out it was this towel

u/roslein · 52 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I've had KP since I was a kid and am finally getting handle on it in my 30s. My current routine is glycolic lotion twice a day, creams on the affected areas 3-4 times a day, and then physical exfoliation and using zinc or sulfur soap a couple times a week to keep the bumps at bay. But since skincare is YMMV, here's the exhaustive list of almost two decades of treatment, in case some of these other things will work for you!

100% of the items can be purchased via Amazon in the US - it's pretty much the only way I shop.

Beginner Level

If your KP has just appeared, focus on physical+chemical exfoliation and moisturizing. Look for lotions with the following ingredients:

u/GirlInAUnicornSuit · 44 pointsr/NotHowGirlsWork

Salux Nylon Japanese Beauty Skin Bath Wash Cloth/towel (3) Blue Yellow and Pink

These are awesome

u/Brenan008 · 25 pointsr/gainit

Use this. Throw it in the washing machine after you are done so that bacteria doesn't grow on it (like on a loofah).

Some gift ideas that have gone over well in the past:

  • Standing flashlight - great for a DIYer
  • Turkish Towel - I use it heavily when traveling. It's a plane wrap, a picnic blanket, a quick coverup, seriously worth packing.
  • An amazing spatula. I love it. Great for any cooks or bakers.
  • If you have an older female relative who likes kitchen stuff, go to Walmart and grab some stuff from the Pioneer Woman. It's cute, it's functional and my mother-in-law loves the stuff. Ree annoys me but she makes it easy to Christmas shop.
  • Teen girls can be tricky. Buy a pair or two of BaubleBar (or BaubleBar for Target) earrings, buy this earring case and now you have a 2 for 1.
  • You should buy some Yak sticks for your dog. Costco also has some great Nylabone and Kong gift packs.
  • Every adult male I know loves this temperature gun.
  • Every newlywed lady I know wants the Chrissy Teigen cookbooks.
  • This throw is the softest thing ever. I have 3.
  • Cute couple's gift (also works for a family member who is bringing someone to Christmas who you feel obligated to gift to but you know little about them): Picnic blanket. You can even add a basket and fill it with wine or cocoa and cookies. Or just gift them a gift card to a cozy restaurant.
  • This Calvin and Hobbes collection is the best gift I received last year. And it's cheaper than it used to be.

    Also, here's my link to a review on here of Etsy/ArtfullyWalls/Society6 artists in case you want to shop for yourself/others with the upcoming sales.

Or, a trio of Salux cloths for under $12 that can be machine washed and are so obscenely big you can cut them in half and they're totally still usable. Fantastic for both home use and travel. I've had mine for almost 4 years.

u/AngelusLilium · 13 pointsr/asktransgender

Shower normally with hot water; this will soften the hair. I generally shave only at the end of a shower as other products might clog my pores.

Exfoliate; this will remove dead skin and dirt, which will help keep it from clogging the razor, promote the release of any ingrown hairs, and further soften the hair.

Lather with a moisturizing shaving soap or if you run out of shaving specific products, hair conditioner works in a bind. Let lather sit for a minute or two; it will further soften the hair.

Starting from the base of your ankle, shave in short strokes (maybe 3-4 inches) upwards against the grain, rotating around your leg; longer strokes evidently can clog the razor faster.

Rinse the blade after every rotation; not rinsing will force you to take multiple passes, and that is something you want to avoid.

The backs of the legs takes practice. I contort myself so I can see for the most part. Calfs are easy to see, but hamstrings are not. If you cannot contort yourself, lift your knee to your shoulder so you can see your hamstrings and shave downwards against the grain from the knee to the butt.

Go slow. A woman's legs are one of her best assets; take care of them.

Do not neglect your toes, thighs, arm pits and knuckles. Arm hair is optional, but even ciswomen can have hairy arms and not give a shit.

Rinse with cold water; as cold as you can possibly endure. This will snap shut your pores and help mitigate bacterial invasions. It helps stops razor bumps, ingrown hairs and acne.

Pat dry with a clean towel; never rub dry because you will exacerbate any micro cuts and make them worse.

Moisturize wherever the blade touched you. Even pros get get micro cuts, so you might want to invest in a medicated moisturizer.

The reward for being diligent?
Rub your freshly shaved legs together; it feels like heaven. It's really quite addicting.


Edit: added stuff

u/FatCockSuckerWantSex · 13 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Have you heard of Salux? That's what I use after having read about it on reddit somewhere. i bought mine from these guys specifically:

People with eczema and all sorts of skin problems were saying it was a godsend, so I nabbed it. I'm not a big fan of Nylon in the least and it doesn't feel great like them soft poofy shits you can get at target, but my skin does look incredible. I'm not ashy ever, either, which is nuts cos i'm always ashy.

u/icommentingifs · 12 pointsr/AskWomen

Customizable dog tag

Ahava Dead Sea Bath Salts - for a luxurious bath that won't dry you out

Ramekins for all of your baking needs. It's also fantastic to use for cooking (holding onto spices, separating eggs, etc.) and for serving dips.

Tons and tons and tons of books - look under the "available for less money" links for "used" paperback versions that will make them super affordable and they usually come nearly brand new!

u/heres_what_happened · 9 pointsr/DontPanic

So, I did a little reading on this before some travel, and ended up buying a couple candidates - bought one that was a technical type cloth (microfiber quick dry thing), and a Turkish bath towel. After trying them both out, I highly recommend a Turkish style bath towel (Pestemal). The one I bought is [here] (, but any similar one would be good.

This is absolutely, 100% a great choice. It's so thin you can take it everywhere, it takes up no space in your bag. It's a little weird to get used to it, because of the thickness (it's a bit like toweling off with a T-shirt), but the tradeoffs are worth it IMO. It dries super fast, it's very soft (and only gets softer as you use it), and as mentioned you can take it anywhere. You'll be the hoopiest of froods in no time.

u/meg_c · 8 pointsr/zerocarb

Hey there, I've got all kinds of eccentric natural beauty/health products that I can suggest:

I don't use body soap at all -- I just scrub in the shower with an asian washcloth.

I do use soap on my hands, as they're exposed to all sorts of yucky stuff and then I touch food and other people. For soap, I use Dr. Bronner's. I also use it as body wash if I get something unusually gross on my body (engine oil, for example).

For deodorant, I use one of those crystals. I like this one just cause it's shaped like regular deodorant.

I make my own lotion with shea butter and jojoba oil from Amazon. I weigh out 70g of shea butter and 30g of jojoba oil in a bowl and melt them in the microwave. Then I mix them up and put the bowl in the fridge for a few minutes to cool. I use an electric mixer to mix the lotion and then put it back in the fridge for another few minutes. Eventually, the lotion cools to the point where I can whip it (kind of like whipping cream). I also add some essential oils once it's cooled but still fairly liquid (coconut and lemon is my current jam) so that takes care of perfume :)

For toothpaste, I actually use tooth powder. (It's also good for the whole TSA nonsense.) There are a bunch of brands, Ecodent, for example.

I'm including some product links, just so you can see what I'm talking about. I haven't purchased that particular brand of shea butter, but it looks nice :) You might try going down to your local health food/hippie store and see what kind of products they have in their beauty section. My local store has stuff like soap, shampoo, and conditioner in bulk, so you can buy just a bit and try it out to see if it works for you :)

u/abarinov · 7 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I ended up having something similar to this in my bathroom. You can find a good linen bath towel on Amazon for around $30. You will never ever have lint with these, I promise.

u/fysu · 7 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Hopefully someone else can speak to laser hair removal (I'm super curious myself as I've heard a lot of mixed things) but in the meantime while you are pricing things out and the summer approaches, I have a few suggestions. I also have thick dark leg hair and am prone to bad ingrown hairs. I use a Japanese exfoliating towel with some bath gel on my legs/bikini line before I shave, shave, then exfoliate again with the towel/more bath gel. And once out of the shower, I rub this magic on the areas I'm prone to getting ingrowns. It's more or less completely eliminated my ingrown hair problem. If you haven't tried either it might be worth the $15 just to see if it'll help a bit before you can get the laser removal.

u/tluuminati · 6 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Did you change anything in your routine that might've caused it? I dealt with butt (cheek) acne for a while too, and I realized that the onset coincided with the period of time that I started working out a lot (sweaty gym tights and sharing gym surfaces = grossness). So I tried to be more diligent about showering as soon as I finished working out, and I also started using one of those Japanese exfoliating cloths to make sure to get rid of any build up. I also tried a butt acne clearing lotion, but I'm not too sure if it made much of a difference. I think there are also body washes with benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, or tea tree oil that you could try, but I think the exfoliating cloths were what really helped clear it up.

u/[deleted] · 6 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I had really bad upper bacne. What solved it for me was using an italy towel or a [salux] ( towel and [this] ( soap. Not the best lather but I have no bacne what so ever and the scars are going away too :) Just need to remember to patch test it first to make sure you don't have a reaction to it.

u/taytermuffin · 6 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Here you go! The price has gone up a lot since I bought them apparently. You can get one by itself for like $5.50.

u/foreignfishes · 6 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

YES. I use secret or dove clinical strength because I'm sweaty af but I swear that shit never comes off. It's slightly worrying.

Anyway specifically exfoliating my armpits pretty much deals with it for me. I used to just wash them like the rest of my body but to get rid of the ghost of deodorants past I put some soap or body wash on one of those korean exfoliating towels and scrubby scrubby a few times a week.

u/valentinedoux · 5 pointsr/DIYBeauty

I use salux before I shave my legs. Most Asian stores do carry them or order it on Amazon.

u/TeaSympathyAndaSofa · 5 pointsr/AskTrollX

Using these exfoliating wash clothes and using stridex in the red box helped me so much. I now only need to spot treat with stridex when I get an occasional break out.

u/QuestionAssumptions · 5 pointsr/TransAdoption

I'm pre-HRT, but here's my skincare routine, with links to the exact products I use. I tried my best to define any skincare terminology. I recommend doing this before bed. Make sure to do the steps in the order listed.

Night time skincare routine

1) Exfoliate. This removes dead skin and other crud. Without exfoliating, you'd be applying skincare products on top of your layer of dead skin, which wouldn't be as effective. I use a Salux brand exfoliating cloth in the shower, lathered with Dove brand bar soap. You should only exfoliate and shave 2 to 3 times a week because it's abrasive. Other steps can be done every night. Side note: if you've never exfoliated before, I highly recommend trying it once. You will feel cleaner than you've ever felt after showering.

2) Shave. If you need to shave, now is the time to do it. If you've had laser hair removal, or simply don't have much body hair, move on to the next step. I don't have specific recommendations for shaving products. The most important thing is to use a clean razor. If you are reusing a razor, wash it with soap and hot water, and use rubbing alcohol to kill any leftover bacteria. Exfoliating before shaving can reduce razor burn because you're cleaner, and therefore less likely to get dead skin and bacteria into the "micro cuts" caused by shaving. Even if you don't cut yourself deeply enough to bleed, dragging a metal blade across your face is always slightly irritating. (Side note: I can't effing wait to get laser.) If you cut yourself shaving, you may apply some 70% rubbing alcohol, only to the cut. I've seen sources that recommend applying rubbing alcohol everywhere after shaving, to kill bacteria and therefore reduce irritation. I don't recommend this because rubbing alcohol is harsh and will dry your skin.

3) Toner. This step cleans your skin further. Similar to exfoliating, the idea is to remove as much dirt and dead skin as possible, so that the skincare products can actually absorb into your skin. I pour some Thayers brand alcohol-free, rose scented witch hazel on a cotton ball and apply to my face and neck. Another reason why the order of the steps is important: This toner contains witch hazel, which is an astringent. This means it tightens your skin. Using witch hazel after shaving may reduce irritation by causing any micro cuts to contract. Let your skin air-dry before moving on.

4) Serum. Now that you're clean, it's time for products that will actually be absorbed by your skin. There are many types of serum available. I typically use retinol, which tightens your skin and prevents wrinkles. I apply a few drops of retinol serum to my face and neck and rub it in. I wait a few moments to let the serum dry before the next step.

5) Moisturizer. Last step. This hydrates your skin and keeps you looking young. I use CeraVe moisturizing cream. It comes in a white tub with a blue label. Most nights I just apply to my face and neck. On the nights that I exfoliate, I use moisturizer on my whole body. The main reason is that it can be time consuming, so I only moisturize my whole body after exfoliating, when my skin will better absorb the moisturizer. Additionally, I use this moisturizer on my hands several times throughout the day (especially after washing my hands because soap can be drying.) This makes a significant difference in reducing dry skin, especially noticeable in the winter. If you only get one skincare product, I recommend this one.

Other important things

That's my nightly skincare routine, but wait, there's more! Any day there's a chance you'll spend time in the sun, wear sunscreen!! This is probably more important than all the other steps put together. You can apply sunscreen on top of your moisturizer, or use a moisturizer that includes SPF. Recently I've been experimenting with using this SPF moisturizer on my face every morning.

Last thing: some people think skincare is all about applying products to your skin, so they'll buy fancier and more expensive products. This is like pulling harder on one lever without realizing there are many other levers available. Diet, exercise, hydration, sleep, having fun, and avoiding stress are all important too. Drink water!! Like, drink a little more water than you think you need.

Edit: Can't believe I forgot this. Don't smoke, and don't use hard drugs. Please don't drink alcohol at your age because it can cause brain damage. When you're older, if you choose to drink, do so in moderation. I don't want to come across as "no fun allowed," but please learn from my experience. Binge drinking is not only bad for your skin, it will make you feel like complete poop the next day. Not worth it.

Edit 2: Fixed formatting, and added details.

Good luck, sis!

u/ThorsKay · 4 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Product name: Salux Cloth

Price (range): $3.73/cloth

Country of purchase: USA

Skin info: All skin types

Ingredients: Nylon

Special info: 4.6 out of 5 Stars on over 1,200 Amazon reviews.

Experience & opinion: I use it with a moisturizing body wash for my body and it exfoliates better than any loofah or scrub I’ve ever used. For the price, you more than get your money’s worth because you can machine wash and dry them when you think they’re dirty. I occasionally will use it for my face, but I prefer Rodan & Fields Microdermabrasion Paste. I originally found it because I was searching for how to treat keratosis and never looked back. I give them as gifts to all my friends. For about $4, definitely worth a try.

u/macbooklover91 · 4 pointsr/onebag

Are you looking to travel a lot in the middle east? The reason I mention it is you might want to look at something that serves the same purpose without being a tacti cool or potentially irrational racial trigger with the climate in the states and parts of Europe right now something like:

This might be a good option for you and /u/backinred

u/KayBee236 · 4 pointsr/sex

I use this GENTLY to exfoliate a day or two before. Honestly, exfoliation makes more of a difference than anything else. Then I shave with the grain with a normal razor and hair conditioner, rather than shaving cream, as it's nicer to my skin. I grew to accept that I cannot shave against the grain without an itchy, bumpy mess.

I used to apply tea tree oil afterward which helped, but I no longer do that. Instead, I do the same exfoliation a couple days after shaving. I haven't had bumps in a long time with this method, however I would like to point out something: my hair is thick, coarse, and dark down there, and I can still see my hair follicles even immediately after shaving. It doesn't look as pretty and smooth as others due to my hair type and because I don't shave against the grain. I want to try waxing one day but haven't brought myself to do it yet. I just wanted to point out that it'll never look fully smooth if your wife has hair like mine. I hope my description helped.

u/WanksterPrankster · 3 pointsr/Wetshaving

A long time ago, I started using one of these Asian scrubby wash towels and my life was changed forever. I will never buy anything else. Exfoliating without being too crazy abrasive. Soap rinses out quickly and completely and it dries fast. It's about 3 feet long, so you can easily wash/exfoliate your whole back. I've never had my back scratched better. Approaching orgasmic. I use liquid soap or bar soap.

u/YELLING_IN_YOUR_HEAD · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I use a Japanese nylon washcloth, which are a bit more abrasive than normal cloths (definitely not for faces!).

I lather it with any salicyclic acid body wash (Dial, Neutrogena, etc.). Post-shower, I use Cerave lotion (in the tub).

My bottom used up look like yours, but I've had maybe two blemishes this summer since starting this regimen.

u/eggzachtly · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Random recommendations from a sophomore in college:

Adidas Shower Shoes - These things have been great. They dry nearly instantly and are adjustable.

Zojirushi Travel Mug - If you drink coffee and would like to have access to it throughout the day, this is by far the best travel mug (and has many recommendations here on BIFL).

Water pitcher - Assuming you will have a fridge (you might not), having access to cold water can be surprisingly convenient. Even if you don't have a fridge, if you don't have a sink, this will be a lot more convenient.

Towels - This is more of a personal preference. For me, department store-bought towels are too soft and absorbent. I found that mine never got totally dry, and replaced them with Turkish peshtemal towels (like these ones from Amazon)

Computer monitor - You will use this all four years, I guarantee it. If you get a big enough one, you can also use it as a TV when friends are over.

Laser printer - do NOT buy an inkjet. You will go crazy when it conveniently runs out of ink before your lab report is due. Brother makes good laser printers. Wireless is nice, but probably not a necessity.

Some kind of noise cancelling headphones - doesn't have to be active noise canceling. College dorms can be noisy. Having a good pair of over-the-ear headphones can be nice, even if you just listen to white noise to drown out your roommate.

Things I didn't need:

A TV - nice, but not necessary

iPad - I don't know why anyone thinks this is necessary or why I have one other than watching Netflix in bed when I'm too lazy to unplug my computer.

u/983745987345897- · 3 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

Wash cloths and loofahs? Naww.

People, school yourselves:

u/Goobermeister · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I'm no professional, but I've spent some time researching this subject, and lurking in the skincaretalk forums lightening community. There's a lot of noise to filter through, but I managed to find a few things that worked for me in getting rid of my own perma farmer's tan.

The first, and most important step of getting rid of a perma tan is SAP (Sun Avoidance and Protection). This literally cannot be emphasized enough, and aside from getting rid of a perma tan it's good for your skin's overall health. It looks like you've taken steps toward this, so snaps for you. Though it tends to leave a white cast, physical sunscreens (containing titanium dioxide and zinc oxide) are the best choice if you want to protect your progress, and prevent yourself from tanning again. Unless you're sitting directly in a sunbeam while you're inside, or in the path of direct reflections of sun, I wouldn't worry about sunscreen while inside. I personally wear long sleeves and sunscreen to combat against incidental sun exposure on the daily. If I know I'm going to be outside for more than a few minutes I have a UV umbrella that I use to protect against the sun. Do I look silly? Probably, but at least my skin won't look like an antique football when I'm older

As for actually getting rid of the tan, the first phase should be exfoliation, which it seems you've already started on. Look for products with AHAs like glycolic or lactic acid. Some readily available options you can buy at walgreens/CVS are Alpha Skincare Body lotion (12% glycolic) or Amlactin (12% lactic). The sidebar has recommendations on products more suitable for facial use if you'd prefer a gel or liquid option for this purpose. Do this for 6-8 weeks, and if your tan doesn't budge then add in active lightening ingredients into your routine.

Another user already mentioned some lightening ingredients to look for, and all these serve the purpose of inhibiting your melanin production and shouldn't make you lighter than whatever your lightest natural skin tone is. I personally used Kojie-San soap (containing Kojic acid) with a Salux cloth to great success on my body. I haven't used it, but I've heard Marie France soap has a higher concentration of acid and thus works more quickly than kojie-san. I used a combination of dermatologist prescribed Retin A and 4% hydroquinone on my face and neck, as the soap was too drying to use on my face. I have friends and relatives who have used Maxipeel #3 (which contains both Retin A and hydroquinone) successfully to get rid of their own face/neck tan, as well as acne scars as a bonus. Kojie-San, Marie France and Maxipeel are Filipino products, but in general, lightening products from Asian countries tend to be more trustworthy than products you may find from sub-Saharan African countries, which in my experience and research, stand a larger chance of having steroids in them. Wherever they are from, if you go for foreign products be sure to do your due diligence on the product itself and wherever you're getting it from. Amazon is usually a safe bet, but check the reviews.

There are some American creams available at the drugstore containing hydroquinone Ambi, with 2% hydroquinone, and Nadinola with 3% hydroquinone, the highest you can get commercially without a prescription in America), though without Retin A, these percentages will be largely ineffective for your purposes.

Getting rid of a perma tan will be a commitment, and progress will be slow, but as long as you are consistent and practice SAP, you'll get there.

u/ricepatty · 3 pointsr/AsianBeauty
u/fraggedears · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

For the back acne: Another thought is possibly a backpack that's a bit too snug that could be causing this. For me, staying dry as possible and wear moisture wicking clothes helped. Perhaps change wife beaters throughout the day if sweat is a problem?

This subreddit also recommends Salux if you don't have it yet, helps with the back washing considerably compared to a regular loofah in terms of reaching spots.

As for the dry skin, try using Cerave in the tub or anything with cermamides about 10-15 minutes after applying BP? It helped me considerably but your mileage may vary.

Good luck!

u/Cubbby · 3 pointsr/AsianBeauty
u/octopop · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I'm going to agree with the above poster. Products with urea (I use Eucerin Advanced Repair) and Stridex help a loooot. Eucerin does not specify how much urea they use for this one, but there are other lotions on Amazon that definitely do. I would second those recommendations. I also use a Salux cloth sometimes, but its VERY rough. I can only use it for a lil bit.

u/iplaywithbugs · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Probably ingrown hairs. Does that sound about right? If so, try exfoliating. Scrub daily with something (like a Salux bath towel), and chemically exfoliate with Stridex. Greatly improved my legs, to be sure!

u/chemkara · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I see that you are dealing with eczema, so a hydrating cleanser instead of soap would be much better for you. Moisturize right after you get out of the shower, even better is your skin is still damp. The trapped water will give you extra moisture. If your moisturizer is not enough, add a few drops of Jojoba Oil to your hand with a dollop of the moisturizer.

Once a week, use an exfoliating cloth likeThe Salux Towel, it gets rid of dead flaky skin.

If you don’t mind extra exfoliation, once a month I use these Hammam Exfoliating Gloves for deeper exfoliation. They are not for everyone but They give amazing results if you soak in a warm bath for a few minutes before hand.

Don’t forget to use a pumice stone on your heals too.

u/Jellyfishpuff · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Going to 1-up you with a Salux cloth. I dry brushed for a LONG time but it just didn't cut it and then I found a reddit thread on these things. They work SO well.

u/alishaha · 2 pointsr/AsianBeauty

For around 10 years now! I haven't perfected anything, and ymmv as always, but here's what I've found and tried

  • Exfoliating wash cloths are a must! The first one I tried was one I found at Marshalls called the Cleanlogic stretch bath and shower cloth. It's on Amazon for $5.50 with Prime, but I got it for $4 at Marshalls. I had been looking for something like this for a while because of how much people rave about Korean Italy towels and Japanese Salux Towels, but I just hadn't pulled the trigger yet. The Cleanlogic is really great. I get a good lather going, then really scrape at my arms and legs (probably start slow and be careful because depending how hard you rub and how hot you like your showers, the water may burn), and use it more gently on the rest of my body. Shave right after. No more razor burn, the kp on my legs are totally gone, and I have only one or two new bumps on my arms. A couple days ago I finally bought a Salux towel (at Mitsuwa for cheaper than Amazon) and it's also fantastic. A little gentler if anything and it doesn't stretch, but same idea. Haven't tried the Italy towels yet.
  • Acids work for some people I use Stridex in the red box, and any leftover Mizon 8% AHA after I use them on my face. I used the Stridex for a while before I got the cloths and I think I saw some difference, but the washcloth was way more dramatic. Because of the order I tried these in, I can't honestly tell if the AHA did much for me. Other people seem to love AHA lotions like Amlactin and Alpha Hydrox, but a lot of formulations may be less effective because of pH level. Paula's Choice is a good resource for vetting AHA lotions. Also be careful with AHAs because they can increase photosensitivity. When you do start showing your legs, use sunscreen if you've been AHA-ing.
  • There is no perfect solution I've scoured the internet and everywhere says the same thing. Keratosis pilaris could be related to genetics, hormones, age, friction from clothes, pore blockage, sun exposure (helps or hurts depending who you ask), weather, and/or God. It's gonna be an ongoing thing until they're ready to leave.

    So I've managed to limit the new bumps for now, but the PIH from KP is real. I'm casually experimenting with vitamin c and retinol (on different nights or with at least 30 minutes between application), but I think it's gonna take time. Niacinamide is also supposed to help so I sometimes sprinkle some of my Scinic Honey AIO. Let me know if you do find something that works for this because I hate it!
u/IanCal · 2 pointsr/funny

> Wet towels don't smell good.

Yeah, that's why you let them dry off.

> Also, Id rather not wipe down my body, specifically my face, with the same towel I previously dried my balls and ass with.

You know you could have two towels, right? Or even this:

u/Big_Baby_Jesus · 2 pointsr/TrueReddit

We can do little things. Starving people need food charity. But after that emergency stage, people need jobs and broad economic growth. That economic growth allows large scale things like Democracy and equality to flourish.

These towels are made from cotton grown in Benin, in west Africa. The group Cotton Made In Africa has organized a co-op of 250,000 small farmers, with a focus on sustainable growth and education.

Last Christmas, everyone on my list got towels, and everyone loved them. So my friends and family got great towels at a fair price, a bunch of African farmers got some money, and I got my Christmas shopping done in 20 minutes. That's a win-win-win situation.

I was actually lucky enough to find the real ones at my local asian supermarket that possessed all the markers of the authentic ones as described by the distributors/sellers of the salux wash cloth,

You can purchase it directly from their website OR their ebay store, You can also get it from amazon as well,

If you're interested, here is an in-depth post from them that tells you how to differentiate from the fake ones to the real ones haha:

It's actually really not that hard to discern from the real ones to the fake ones. You will see. haha

Hope that helps! :)

Exfoliating is to scrub the skin, so the dead skin falls off, and it can pull out ingrown hairs, and so on.

Depending on the area of skin, you may want to be more or less gentle. So a face can be exfoliated with a face scrub and/or face brush. The bottom of your feet, use a pumice stone. And for areas you shave, having a washcloth or brush can do it, it can be tricky finding something that is comfortable, yet effective, and not too rough. I'm satisfied with this.

u/nevergirl · 2 pointsr/AsianBeauty

For me, the biggest difference is ease of use. I imagine you get a similar exfoliation from both. Since the towel is easy for me to wrap around my back and scrub without contorting my arm, it's much easier for me to use. It also lathers up extremely well and is super fast to clean and dry.. which can sometimes be an issue for me with a loofah.

Here is the one I use, I just get them from Amazon if I'm not visiting any Asian grocery stores soon. They are usually WAY cheaper if you can get them at a grocery.

Both of these I’ve used! I like the 2nd for its length (easy back reach) and the 1st for its efficiency (I think it’s scrubbier if that makes any sense).

The greatest thing I've seen for this is the Salux Cloth. It is beyond amazing and they're super cheap. Read the reviews. I actually threw out my Clarisonic after buying these.

u/mrdrummerperson · 2 pointsr/solotravel

I've heard bad things about the microfiber. Can start to smell bad, and the texture on skin isn't the best.
I carry a linen towel. Stays smelling good, and is super absorbent. I actually like it better than typical towels, plan on stocking up whenever I have a home again haha.

Edit: It's a full size towel, and rolls up to the same size of a pair of pants.

This one to be exact.

u/swabinhispoopdeck · 2 pointsr/Showerthoughts

you need one of these, blows my mind these aren't more common. It's just a really long wash cloth so you can grab the ends and scrub every inch. The Japanese really know what they're doing.

u/closetrpw · 2 pointsr/RedPillWomen

omg yes this is what I actually use

So I actually like the original cream but I have sampled the gel cream. The great thing about La Mer is you can get samples when you order from their site. But yes, it is very pricey. For me a 2 oz. thing of the creme will last almost a year though.

I'm not sure if it's strictly the vitamin c, but I have noticed a difference in the lotion I use that incorporates both vitamin c and retinol! I honestly just love this because it is very lightweight and doesn't leave a greasy feeling on my skin.

I also forgot to mention that I try to moisturize rough areas (knee caps, elbows, hands, feet) with coconut oil and put the tiniest amount on the tips of my hair sometimes! I also have pretty long hair so the ends can dry out, especially if I'm due for a trim...

u/Orangulent · 2 pointsr/xxfitness

I keep wipes in my gym bag. If I know I can't get a shower right away, I clean my acne prone spots with the wipes to at least get some of the sweat and dirt off.
I use the Stridex red box pads too. I don't find body washes with salicylic acid very effective for me, it just doesn't stay on my skin long enough. The Stridex pads are better, imo.
Physical exfoliation seems to help too. I buy [salux](Salux Nylon Japanese Beauty Skin Bath Wash Cloth/towel (3) Blue Yellow and Pink cloths on Amazon. They're kindof like an unraveled loofah, but better, because they're machine washable.

u/cthulhu-kitty · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I’ve used exfoliating gloves after waxing to prevent ingrown hairs. But I recently switched to a Salux cloth from the Asian grocery. It’s bigger and easier to use than the gloves, and I can even scrub my own back with it- can’t do that with gloves!

My waxing lady said wait 2 days after waxing to start exfoliating, so I don’t know if it’s the same for epilating or not, ymmv. You can also try doing the scrub cloth before epilating, and then follow up with some of the lotions and chemical exfoliators other people recommended.

It's not a miracle product but I'm seeing some nice results with the Trader Joe's Tea Tree Body Wash. It's super cheap so I figured why not try it and I'm so happy I did.

I've also started clipping my hair up (in the shower) after washing it so it's not touching my skin at all when I scrub my back. I'm using these to do the scrubbing:

u/OssiansFolly · 1 pointr/DoesAnybodyElse

I have a specific way that I hang my towel up on the bar. Ass part goes in the back, so if someone washes their hands at my house and decides to use my bath towel instead of the hand towel they don't touch that side.

Hi! Looking for some help with exfoliation:

I've been using BHA for chemical exfoliation at night and AHA 2-3 times a week to help fade PIH.

What application method gives best results for chemical exfoliators? I'm inconsistent with application methods, from most to least often I either fall asleep with the BHA still on my face, sometimes BHA + immediately apply AHA + immediate moisturizer, sometimes I rinse off the BHA after 20 min and apply moisturizer.

Also, should I add physical exfoliation? I never feel like the dead skin comes off my face, and sometimes I can't stop myself from picking and scraping. I've been researching on /r/AsianBeauty and it looks like some suggestions for physical exfoliators are "Paris Cloths" and "Salux Cloths". Any thoughts?

Exfoliate! Bacne is often caused by the overproduction of skin cells. You need to exfoliate to clear away the dead skin and avoid breakouts.

These cloths, paired with a natural soap such as Dr. Bronner's or Dr. Woods, solved 85% of my acne problems in about 2-3 weeks.

u/ss90kim · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction


Am I supposed to rub really hard until the dead skin comes off?

I have two of these:

I like how quickly they dry every morning after being used. They seem absorbent, with a nice roughness, and no weird smells. Shrinkage isn’t bad, and they end up big enough to do the job even after going through the dryer.

Edit: they have a nifty little loop on one edge so you can hang them from a hook.

1888 Mills is one of the best values for towels. They are super absorbent and soft and not badly priced. The other option is Ikea, I just bought one and it isnt nearly as fluffy but it is still soft and very absorbent, and you cant beat the price.

u/meowbeepboop · 1 pointr/PCOS

I've found that exfoliating and using lotion designed to slough off dead skin cells works for me. It's not a cure, but it really helps me deal with my dry, flaky skin if I do this regularly. I use a lotion with lactic acid and a Japanese scrub towel.

u/Surefire · 1 pointr/phoenix

Do you mean Salux?

u/yaluhaha · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I’m not sure if this has been said....but if you go to Asian supermarkets they have this exfoliation scarf thingy that’s like a really long loofa kinda thing. I think that would be helpful in scrubbing hard to reach places And it’s pretty cheap too. Also I don’t know if there’s any scientific proof but I try to scrub only in the direction my hair grows to prevent ingrown hairs and not scrub too hard that you hurt yourself because that can cause new wounds etc. Good luck and congratulations on your love life!

Edit: I found a link on Amazon that sells the exfoliation thingy I was talking about, just to give you an idea about what I was talking about

u/jarec707 · 1 pointr/onebag

Something like this, a cooling towel? Used a low tech version long ago, helped. Admittedly better with fan Mission Enduracool Techknit Cooling Towel, Large, Blue Space Dye

u/dinosoursaur · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I second the Italy towel maybe a Salux cloth which is a little softer. The usual directions are to soak in a hot bath or shower for about twenty minutes, then scrub yourself with the towel/cloth. Moisturizing afterwards will make you feel extra nice. :)

Sorry you went through such a rough time and I'm glad you're feeling a little better now. Depression is the worst. I know what it's like to feel like everything, including showering, is more effort than you can expend. I hope things just get better for you from here.

u/pussgurka · 1 pointr/acne

You can try body washes containing salicylic acid too and see if that would help. If you have a family member or a friend that can help you out, you can also try applying benzoyl peroxide on your back every day. Many people surprisingly do not wash their backs. If you don't own a back scrubber or a wash cloth like this [one] (, you might want to add them to your toiletries.

u/Grateful_Flood · 1 pointr/SonicTheHedgehog

This one is pretty COOL!

But this one has both a cast of characters and boob so take yer pick

I'd be a little skeptical regarding the quality of the 2nd but it could be fine I dunno.

u/ReflectiveWave · 1 pointr/OrganicHealthProducts

If you go to any Asian market you can buy an exfoliating wash cloth. Looks like a towel but has tiny scrubby things on it. Use that to wash with whichever soap you use and the chicken skin will go away. Asian wash cloth

u/TheAnswerIsAQuestion · 1 pointr/MtF

Exfoliating is a big help, these are awesome for in the shower. I lather one up with soap and use it to wash with, then shave, and then I lightly exfoliate with the cloth again with just water before getting out. Moisturize after with something that doesn't irritate your skin (I like Lubriderm Sensitive Skin personally).

I'm not sure I agree with the sentiment that women's razors are necessarily better. I spent quite a bit of time looking online for what the best razor to use on my legs would be and the general consensus was the main difference between women's and men's razors is just the handle shape and packaging/cost. Many cis women actually posted about preferring the Mach 3 which is a "men's" razor. I already had one of those so I've been using it for body hair and personally it's been working very well. It's also pretty economical compared to many when it comes to buying blades (you can get a pretty good deal on them in bulk on Amazon).

Also, how much pressure are you using? It should be quite light, let the razor do the work. I wonder if you're pushing down harder than you need to without realizing it.

yeah, kinda pricey (cheapest I could find though lol), but I enjoyed it! would've been a long term investment if i hadn't... lost it lol. it dried super fast, packed really tightly, and did a decent job of drying me off, and was really big. it also could double as a blanket. i heard linen is antibacterial too, so it doesn't start smelling like microfibers do (supposedly), and it's supposed to last longer since it's natural fiber.

u/yellowthaicurry · 1 pointr/TwoXChromosomes

I had a bf that had a problem like this. People at work started to tell him he seemed to have an odor problem even though he showered everyday as well as wear his clothes once.

I got him this scrubby towel but anything similar to it works the same. Now he uses this along with an antibacterial soap when he showers. It's really rough so it gets all the dead skin cells off. Make sure to really scrub in the armpit areas! He hasn't had much of an odor issue since then

For me personally I use the scrubby towel thing too and this Vagisil ph balance wash (cause my vagina gets sensitive and it helps) but started using it for my armpits too and I never have to use deodorant as long as I use it each time I shower

u/nero147 · 1 pointr/onebagging

I got this one . It's rough, but totally works. I expect it to soften up.

u/Zomnomnombeezy · 1 pointr/lifehacks

I totally deal with this too, like I cringe when I touch towels. For me it's not softness- it's just cotton. Specifically if my hands are wet or damp. Or on my teeth. Watching other people chew on clothes makes me just about lose it. I literally have goosebumps and am cringing just writing this! I finally found some amazing towels I can use! Too lazy to link but they're called ...well fuck it, had to look them um to remember what they're called so I'll link. But they're a silky texture. I finally just admitted that it's a serious problem and I can do something to make it better so I found and am replacing textures that I encounter and CANT FU*KING HANDLE. Best of luck to you both!!

u/intrinsicdisorder · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Looks like you've already gotten some good advice, but I have a little more to add on a few of your items.

Sugar Scrub recipes? / How to remove dry skin? / How to eliminate the Red Bump Syndrome after shaving? Just get a Salux cloth and exfoliate with that (plus a little body wash) in the shower. It is MAGIC for exfoliation! I used to get the red bumps pretty bad but now I just exfoliate before shaving and I have no problems. Also, replace the blades in your razor when they start to get dull.

Ways to cure acne? This varies from person to person, but /r/SkincareAddiction is AMAZING. I wash with Cerave foaming cleanser, use their PM moisturizer (plus sunscreen during the day), make sure to wash my face AFTER brushing my teeth, and avoid touching my face much. This prevents a lot of zits for me. The ones I do get are poked with a clean lancet after washing my face and then covered with a hydrocolloid bandage.

How to whiten my smile? / bleach my hair? I saw you mention you have issues with pool chlorine--as a chemist, I feel I should inform you that commercial teeth whitening strips contain carbamate peroxide as the whitening agent and not chlorine bleach (NaClO). Similarly, bleach meant for hair is also peroxide-based. Big difference! Might want to see if they work for you, since they don't contain the chemical that was causing you problems.

Nail Care Tips THESE VITAMINS ARE MAGIC. My nails get pretty long without breaking now, and I'm really rough on my hands. They taste like candy, too. Should also be good for hair and skin!

Exercise routines...? Go learn how to lift heavy things properly. Seriously. New Rules of Lifting for Women is not a bad starting point for a total beginner. Heavy lifting has given me loads of confidence, kickass thighs, an awesome butt, and even visible abs at one point. Lifting will build muscle, which provides a nice frame even if you have extra much bodyfat you carry also depends on your diet, which /r/xxfitness can help you figure out. Once you figure out what works for you, sustainably, diet and activity-wise, you actually have a great deal of control over how your body looks. (It turns out I like chocolate more than I like seeing my abs most of the time, but if I miss them and I want them visible for a while, I now know that about 1800-2000 cal/day with a high training volume will do that.) Endless cardio is not necessary if you are like me and you hate running...I only do naked cardio :D Do find an activity you love and will stick with, and make sure you get enough sleep. Don't cut calories to 1200/day and run yourself to death, it will screw up your metabolism for years and make it way harder to lean out.

Good ways to stop Cramps, or at least help make them lighter and less painful. If they're debilitating, see your gynecologist--a medical condition could be the problem. As an endometriosis sufferer, I'm on a Pill that's designed to give only four periods a year, but I take it continuously, so I don't have periods at all. That's not for everyone, but it does help a lot to start taking ibuprofen a week before your period and continue taking it (at the recommended interval, something like every 6 hours I think) until the cramping stops. Also, invest in a good heating pad. They work very, very well.
