Let me change your life!!! Hop on Amazon and search “Italy cloth”. $4.38 for an 8 pack of these miraculous exfoliating washcloths!

I’ve had KP since I was a kid and I tried everything. Since I found out about these the skin on my arms, thighs, and butt is so much smoother and even.

Shower with warm water, and after a few minutes start gently scrubbing your entire body and watch as your dead skin rolls off. Rinse well and cry about how smooth your body feels and embrace your new life as a baby dolphin.

Edit: here’s the link!

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

u/munkyyy · 109 pointsr/AsianBeauty

I absolutely love these little wash cloths. You take a hot bath or shower then firmly wipe down your arms and legs in strokes. The dead skin and buildup comes right off, kinda gross but really satisfying in a weird way. It leaves your skin super smooth and soft days after.

I've got a ridiculous, meticulous self tanning routine that involves a lot of this.

I use these Korean Italy Towels to exfoliate, making sure to focus on all of my problem areas (elbows, knees, ankles, knuckles, wrists, toes, right under my boobs, neck) that seem to hoard dead skin. I also shave beforehand.

Then I put a light layer of lotion (one that doesn't contain any oil) on the bottom of my feet, toes, ankles, knees, belly button, elbows, crease of arm pit, wrists, and any scratches I have.

THEN I use this blending balm and put a light layer on my knees, elbows, wrists, and ankles.

THEN I put on some latex gloves and use a nice tanning mitt like this one. Not all tanning mitts are created equal.

I start from the bottom half of my legs and work my way up with the actual tanning. Working from the bottom up ensures you aren't splotching your tan by bending over and hitting your chest to your legs. I use the mitt with whatever type of tan product I'm using -- spray, mousse, lotion, whatever. I spread in a circular motion, making sure there aren't any streaks or splotches. I make sure I bend my knees and wipe them while they're bent so that the product gets into my knee wrinkles.

Once I'm done applying, I take one latex glove off and wipe that hand. then I take the other off and wipe the other hand. Then I use the blending balm and put a little more on my toes, knees, elbows, wrists, and fingers and rub those areas in with one of the latex gloves so that my fingers don't get orange. Then I carefully wash my palms with a little bit of water and then put some lotion on my palms and carefully rub them together.

It's a PROCESS, but I never look weird and I've never splotched or looked orange. Also, for reference, I'm as white as white can be.

My favorite tanners so far are Fake Bake Flawless, St Tropez, Sun Laboratories dark lotion (smells the nicest), and this random self tanner mousse from Sally's Beauty Supply from the brand Tanwise.

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/Blonde_Calculator · 40 pointsr/RandomActsofMakeup

The good:

your eyes are very good, well done with the colour transition, the wings are the perfect thickness and lenght - you are lucky to have very open eyes. I also like the purple under.

Your eyebrows have a good shape

I think the foundation colour matches you well

The bad:

As pointed the others: your foundation. I think the problem starts with the fact that your skin has a lot of texture. I used to have exactly the same skin as you and what helped me was physical exfoliation, I use exactly those Korean Italian towels. They make my skin very smooth and get rid of the dead skin, therefore I break-out less.

Secondly, I also think you have a dry skin. At first glance your skin looks oily but I think it is because dry skin tends to overproduce oil (since it is starved of it), therefore making it super oily after few hours.

The foundation itself is a bit too thick, my trick with foundation is to avoid putting any above my lips (it never looks good unless photoshopped) and less on my nose, forehead and under my eyes / nos bridge. This way you can still put loads on your cheeks and around your chin without looking 'too much'.

I think it would have been really good if you used powder on a top of your foundation - it gives your skin a cleaner and more matte look, getting rid of shiness coming from oily foundation. I think aloso a tiny bit of blush / bronzer on your cheeks, nose and forehead would have been perfect!

Lastly, your eyebrows. They are a very good shape, you you have that. However I think you should try to make them more subtle. Try not to draw your eyebrows and fill it 100%, but accent them. Make them a bit more natural

u/ZeeBail · 30 pointsr/AsianBeauty

Also, Italy towels! These aren't for your face, but damn do they make your body soft. My KP has been resolved using nothing more than weekly Italy towels and some Kikumasamune.

They're about $1, they last for maybe 4-6 weeks until they soften up too much to be effective. The pink is the gentlest, the green is medium, and the yellow is for scrubbing rust off your BBQ.

Korean Exfoliating Bath Washcloth [4 pcs] (Green) by TeChef Home

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).

u/akb47 · 22 pointsr/AsianBeauty

I use these Korean bath towels, since I find them really efficient for exfoliating. This would be after I have shampoo'd and rinsed my hair, and leave in my conditioner. By then, the steam should have loosened the dead skin off so that a few swipes remove my dead skin. Otherwise, I use standard Western body wash.

u/ilalli · 22 pointsr/onebag

I like Turkish peshtemal towels. One tip is to wash and dry them several times before you will actually use them, as they are not very absorbent out of the package and become softer and more absorbent over time.

u/cmagnuson · 16 pointsr/boostedboards

After riding 2,500 miles between my two boards, here are the accessories I bring with me on every ride:

GoPro Hero Session camera: On two occasions I have been assaulted by people in cars while commuting home. They threw an egg and some water at me. After the first incident, I purchased this camera and started riding with it facing behind me. When the second assault occurred, I was able to grab the license plate # from the video footage and got the culprits in trouble with the police.

Fingerless gloves: When you fall off your board, which you surely will if you ride any significant distance, the first part of your body to hit the pavement will probably be the palms of your hands as you catch yourself. Removing the skin from your hands feels terrible, even on small falls. Wearing these gloves provides an extra layer to rub off when you hit the pavement. Make sure you wear fingerless gloves though because full-fingered gloves make it extremely difficult to operate the remote control.

Flatland 3D bash guard and remote ring: These two accessories changed my boarding life completely. Definitely put a bash guard on the tail of your board to prevent the ground from chewing up the tail every time you bring your board vertical. Don't waste your time putting on a nose guard because they don't serve a purpose. The nose of my board never touches anything except my hands and having a guard there makes it more uncomfortable/difficult to handle the nose of the board. When it comes to the remote ring, I cannot recommend this accessory highly enough. Sure, putting a Nintendo Wii remote strap on your Boosted remote will keep it from dropping to the ground. On the other hand, the Flatland 3D remote ring keeps the remote snugly embedded in the palm of your hand even if you fully open your hand and spread all of your fingers. I've even completely fallen off my board and hit the ground without losing grip of my remote. The remote ring is a true game-changer.

A headlamp: A headlamp??? Yes, a headlamp. Why? Well, riding a skateboard at night is one of the most terrifying activities known to man. Any unexpected bumps, cracks, or rocks can send you flying. With a headlamp, you can wear it like a garter around your thigh. This gives the light a perfect vantage point to light up the pavement in front of you. I've used this light in particular to commute at night for a couple years and it works excellently. Light & Motion makes the best lights I've ever used. The build quality is unmatched and their customer service is top notch.

Clear biking glasses: Riding without something over my eyes is very difficult. Dust from the road and insects from the air frequently fly into my eyes unless I am wearing some form of protection. During the day, any pair of sunglasses work fine. However, at night a pair of shades is not a good idea. Instead, I purchased some biking glasses from Smith Optics. This model comes with several lenses: smoke, rose, and clear.

Small towels: If you ride your board any farther than a mile in a single ride, especially if you commute in a city, you will find the bottom of your board covered in dust, muck, and liquids at the end of your ride. Folding a small towel and sticking it in my back pocket has saved me from countless headaches. Instead of getting to my destination with a board dripping with garbage truck juice or covered in mud, I am able to quickly wipe down the bottom of my board so I don't get my hands and clothing dirty. In addition, if I spill anything else on myself while I'm out, I have a handy rag I can quickly utilize. These towels are so cheap that I don't feel bad throwing them away if I trash them.

LED waist belt: When riding at night, being visible is one of the keys to safety. While your garter headband works great to light the path in front of you, this LED waist band makes you much more visible to vehicles approaching you from behind.

A helmet: These protect your noggin. I haven't found a helmet I love yet, but this one does have the best chinstrap I've ever seen. It's magnetic, which means it's impossible to pinch the skin under your chin when putting on the helmet!

u/gummy_bear_time · 16 pointsr/AsianBeauty

[Here’s the link to it on Amazon] (

Looks like it comes in a larger size too. I’m going to trust you, OP, so I just ordered a pack! :)

u/debubun · 14 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

i’m currently dealing with this as well! i’ve received some advice through this subreddit that’s helped a bit that i’ll list below but def keeping an eye on this thread just in case there’s anything else that helps!

so what you’re dealing with is probably keratosis pilaris (same as i). at first i was going to buy first aid beauty’s ultra repair cream to smooth my skin, but then someone mentioned gold bond’s ultimate rough & bumpy skin cream and it’s been working wonders. FAB’s product is $32 vs gold bond’s $10 product and i have no complaints so far.

what i do is use a dry brush 2-3x a week before i shower to exfoliate my skin then in the shower i’ll also use a cloth with my body wash that helps with exfoliating even more. once out i apply the gold bond cream on my trouble areas and let dry.

hope this helps out!

u/_CoachMcGuirk · 14 pointsr/HerOneBag

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/d_ippy · 12 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I got mine too! Also I bought a long one for my back. Anyone know why it’s called at Italy towel if it’s Korean? Fun fact: I am half Italian and half Korean.

back thing

u/mariecurious · 11 pointsr/AskWomen

My korean body scrub mitt.

It's essentially just a super powered loofah, but I put some body wash on it and scrub myself like I can purge my sins about once a week. Keeps my skin super soft. It's really helped for dry itchy skin in the winter time.

One can find these at your local Jjimjilbang, "oriental" mart, or on amazon.

u/hellohellohelooo · 11 pointsr/MakeupAddictionCanada

Actually instead you should try these exfoliating Italy Towels that they use for Korean Scrubs, I just got them on and I love them, I just use them in the shower before your body wash/soaps/ shaving, I usually use them once a week after after my hair step, so that my skin gets softer from the water. They are reusable too.

u/seasicksquid · 11 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Tony Moly also sells a version of this.

Be sure to soak your feet before using. Like, until they are wrinkly. It'll help your skin to actually soak up the solution.

Also, the basis of this is really just exfoliating. You can get similar results without having to do the full peel by simply manually exfoliating your feet. It sounds gross, but I find it works without having to go through the whole process of molting feet for a week.

While in the bath - once your feet are nice and soaked and the skin is softened, you can usually just use a pumice stone, an abrasive cloth (like Italy clothes from South Korea or exfoliating mitts that are made of fine viscose (I prefer these for full body rub downs as well as feet - easier to use), or just your finger nails. You can feel the dead skin coming off - finger nails are especially useful around the toes.

u/Lutya · 11 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Have you tried AmLactin directly after a shower? Also, try exfoliating in the shower with these.

u/catsontop · 9 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I have this same issue and I've improved it greatly over the last month! I was actually taking photos intending to make a post about it but this is perfect.

I know the lighting in these photos is different, but the before photo on the left looked as bad or worse than it does in the photo. The after photo is in ultra bright natural light, and that was after two weeks of my new routine every day, an absolutely enormous improvement for me! I'm looking into additional options now, but so so happy with this start as it eliminated like 70% of my issue.

Routine - Every time I take a shower (basically every day)

  • Shave. I use a Gillette Venus Embrace, and will never ever use another kind of razor. Before I found this one I tried pretty much every single widely available razor. This one is super easy on my skin for some reason. I just shave with soap, never letting my blades get super dull.

  • Wash and exfoliate legs - I use Dove bar soap (looking to upgrade this) and these, which I found suggested on this sub. I tried chemical exfoliation on my legs and saw no results, physical really does it for me.

  • Pat dry, spray with rose water (I don't think this does anything, but it's refreshing and gets my legs moist for next step)

  • Pat on liberal amounts of aloe vera, this is what I have.

    Allow to dry, and voila! I hope this works for some folks here.
u/DontCallMeJudy · 9 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

They are called Italy Towel. I found them with the other body care items. It looked like this when I purchased it about a year or so ago

u/WearsSensibleShoes · 8 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Have you heard of Sensory Processing Disorder? I have OCD and don't think that your aversion is related to that, but it's pretty unusual. I say that I don't think its OCD because the way you talk about soap is more physical than mental-and while I'll be the first to talk about nausea and feeling physically ill because of anxiety, you describe a very SPD like experience. I hate brushing my teeth because the taste of every toothpaste and physical sensation of brushing and movement triggers my gag reflex, but using warm water and being aware of how important it is helps me power through most of the time.

Is bar soap different than liquid soap? Have you ever tried powdered soap? How do you deal with dishwashing soap and laundry detergent? Does shampoo not trigger the same ill effects? Have you ever used a cream cleaner? Have you ever used orange Gojo hand cleaner? Do scented lotions or candles affect you in the same way that scented soap does?

I'd definitely recommend seeing a therapist who has experience with OCD and autism, because sensory stuff and compulsive behaviors (or lack of behavior) can be linked to that stuff. If you have any success, please post an update!

Edit: to add, have you ever used a nylon net? one of these things, it dramatically changes the texture of liquid or bar soap to something more like foamy shampoo, which might help.

Edit 2: Dr. Bronner's liquid castile soap has a very different texture than most liquid soaps, might be worth giving it a go.

u/Decadent-Trash · 8 pointsr/AsianBeauty

oh man you asked for it. This is what I do if i have a day off and nowhere to be:

I like to put on a mud mask (I like the volcanic clay one from Innisfree, or the pore refining charcoal one from clinique) wait for that to dry, and then hop in the shower to rinse it off, and wash my hair. Then I fill up the tub and put in some nice bath salts or a lush bath bomb, apply a hair mask and a sheet mask. After extensive soaking, I scrub off with one of those korean towels (gets all the dead skin off your body. it's pretty gross but very worth it.)

After that, hop back in the shower, rinse off completely, shave, and then moisturize. Takes a long time but man do I always feel good afterwards.

u/debbers111 · 8 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I had success with “Italy Towels” about once a week to scrub (a lot of) dead skin off after a soak in hot water. Also, using coconut oil after showering and especially after scrubbing did great for any raised bumps.

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/HoneyMuff · 7 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Something like this or this is what I use, some Asian markets have them in the soap section.

u/gothmommy666 · 7 pointsr/AsianBeauty

These are Italy towels. They're more like rough little mitts than actual towels.
They're meant to be used on skin that's been soaked in a bath or long hot shower. They're very good at getting rid of dry skin, but they're pretty intense stance you're supposedly to really go at your skin with them. You can see your dead skin actually roll up and fall off. Totally disgusting but also very satisfying. They're washable and reusable so they last forever. I bought the pack of 8 in Feb and have only had to replace on so far.

8 pcs Asian Exfoliating Bath Washcloth - Red & Green

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/Daheep · 6 pointsr/AsianBeauty

You want to exfoliate first! Get an Italy Cloth, Scrub Gloves, or if you want to go non-AB, one of these. The next time you shower, scrub yourself down & any lotion you end up choosing will absorb much better.

u/notdayna · 6 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Ahhhhhhhh, that's probably the key then. I'm really impatient with applying fake tan haha. I just bought these because I read in another thread that they are supposedly better than the gloves :O I can't wait to be a smooth baby hahaha.

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/companda0 · 5 pointsr/ZeroWaste

Re: KP, quitting dairy (and going vegan) will probably have a bigger environmental impact than all zero waste habits combined ;) So that certainly won't hurt!

I personally use an Italy towel for exfoliation on my KP and found that using that plus a heavy moisturizer (like various oils, haven't found shea butter package-free but that's another option) has been the best. My italy towels did come in plastic packaging but they can be reused over and over again, probably forever. It's what korean spas use to exfoliate. I have a green one and pink one, and the pink ones are supposedly more gentle so I gently use it on my face and it works too.

I'm still phasing out my old skincare, but right now I'm doing: oil cleansing --> cleansing w soap --> exfoliating w towel --> using my old moisturizer (will try evening primrose or jojoba oil next) --> sunscreen.

Here are some other ZW ideas, from Paris to Go. More for fun, I think, though :)

u/RatimusMaximus · 5 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

For my KP routine, I am scrubbing myself with Exfoliating Bath Washcloth and applying Amlactin Ultra or Excipial 20% Urea after shower every morning and evening. The bumps have gone down significantly, but I am still struggling with the red discoloration all over the body.

Any suggestions/comments on what I might be doing wrong/right?

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!

I love exfoliating, and if that's your goal, just get these. Wash your body with soap as usual, maybe take time to wash your hair/shave/etc (it works way better after you've been soaking a while), rinse, then start scrubbing with this thing (without soap at all). The amount of gross dead skin that you'll scrub away is just great. Very good for ingrown hairs too.

If you're looking for just a spa-like luxurious scrub, I like this. I don't find it nearly as effective as the previous towels, which are the best exfoliators I've used in general (not counting chemical exfoliators).

u/so_untidy · 4 pointsr/weddingplanning

Oh my gosh, this sounds super stressful! I actually have horrible skin on my legs (scars easily) and am so bad about scratching bites. Let's see what we can do.

  1. If possible, use an oral or topical antihistamine to control the itching so you aren't tempted to scratch.

  2. If it's warranted, use Neosporin on your scratches.

  3. Moisturize your skin with something gentle.

  4. Drink lots of water.

  5. Take an oral anti-inflammatory like aspirin or ibuprofen.

  6. If you don't have a burn and it's just the tan, take a nice warm long shower and then go to town with a scrubby mitt. The best are the Korean towels, but whatever you can find in your local drugstore would work.

    Lastly, try to just let it go on the day of and feel confident and beautiful. You're already super brave for doing the shoot and your FH is going to love it no matter what! If something really bothers you, ask your photographer what you can do. If your back is really bothering you, for example, could you stick with a men's button down shirt over a bra? Or not include poses of your back?

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/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/krissycole87 · 4 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I got this 60pk on Amazon and I love them. They kind of remind me of hotel towels. But they are very absorbent, feel nice, and having 60 of them means way, way less washing and I dont feel bad about using a new one every single day.

Here's a link for italy towels on Amazon!
Sit in a hot water bath for at least 20-30 minutes and then scrub your skin. Rolls of skin will come off, don't stop scrubbing until these don't come up any more. Then moisturize your legs after you towel dry. If this isn't a solution, I recommend seeing a professional or ask some family/friends.

u/SoulsticeCleaner · 3 pointsr/keratosis

Just sending you some love here--it's allegedly such a common issue, but I've got it worse than anyone I've met IRL.

I've had really good luck with Korean exfoliating cloths and Retin-A applied immediately after. Caveat being...that's on my body, I don't have it on my face.

Best of luck, friend. Don't despair yet. Don't let putting on makeup make you feel less masculine. It's no different than putting on sunscreen or any other product.

u/bloodfluke · 3 pointsr/Dryfasting

This appears to be keratosis pilaris, and there are a lot of things you can do to improve the appearance of your skin.

  • Gold Bond Rough & Bumpy twice a day; works via AHA and BHA acid chemical exfoliators. Easy to find in Walmart and drugstores.
  • Get yourself a shower scrub towel (like this one) and a moisturizing soap to put on it, and physically rub & exfoliate your skin in the shower. (I like Yardley Oatmeal and Almond soap bc it's gentle, but use whatever works for you.) You can do this anywhere between once a day and every couple of days depending on how sensitive your skin is.
  • And yes, fasting. Both water and dry. Though tbh I would use one or both of the above methods in combination with any sort of fasting to see faster results.

    Edit: There are increasingly more invasive treatments you can use if the first basic approach doesn't work-- for example: stronger chemical peels, retinols, ultrasonic skin scrubbling, and microneedling. These are usually only used for either deeper acne/burn scarring or the pursuit of absolute perfection in one's face. However, if you combine a basic skincare routine with any sort of fasting, your skin will probably drastically improve.

Maybe try those exfoliating towels like the Salux ones or the Italy Towels ?
I’ve heard that the Italy Towels are more powerful and a little tougher than the Salux ones, but neither one should be used on the face.

u/nivlow · 3 pointsr/Psoriasis

I've recently started using a korean italy towel and it's been working great. They sell on amazon. In a good soaking or long shower it'll do a good job of taking off scales.

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/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/designgoddess · 3 pointsr/DogCare

My boy was too terrified to go outside for a year and half. I put down cheap bath mats. They have a rubber backing so nothing leaks through and they are easily washed. I also bought a ton of cheap bar towels. I'd use them to blot and then I'd soak the area with Natures Miracle and use more of the bar towels to blot up. For my 45 pound dog it's about 10 bar towels each time. There is no good way to get around doing a load of laundry a day unless you want everything disposable. Which gets expensive quickly. For your bed I'd get a rubber sheet to put under your sheets or a couple good mattress covers to rotate. I'm not sure one mattress cover is enough to stop it from soaking through. Put the bath mats on your bed cover and don't let your dog sleep between the seats if you can. Maybe get an x-pen or two so you can keep him contained to an area that's easy to clean.

You might want to wash them before using so they are more absorbable. I found it much easier to use a bunch of smaller towels than a few big ones. I washed everything used to clean up after him separately. Towels and mats would be their own loads. FYI, my boy hated the belly band so that option didn't really work, but it's worth a shot. You'll have to bathe him more to cut down on the stink factor.


Rubber sheet. I fully expect my Facebook page to be loaded with advertisements for rubber sheets now. You're welcome. ;)

I hope he's feeling better soon.

u/greentiger83 · 3 pointsr/ehlersdanlos

I get this too but I didn’t realize this was an EDS thing. Twice week I take a long hot shower and then rub myself down with an Italy cloth and it removes layers and layers of dead skin. Seriously its like a snake shedding its skin- so gross by so satisfying. Then I coat myself in coconut oil. When I’m consistent with it, the dead skin problem stays under control. I found out about Italy cloth at a Korean spa- you can buy them on amazon for cheap and they exfoliate better than anything else I’ve ever tried.

u/ellaasbury107 · 3 pointsr/HerOneBag

The towel is a turkish towel like this one. wearing it as a scarf/blanket on the plane! I definitely won't need a towel for showers, but I'm doing a few water activities that said BYO towel. I have a decent amount of skincare but I'm really only bringing cleanser and moisturizer. Toners/treatments/oils staying at home! I decided to just bring the 1 cardigan and leave the other sweater.

That is what I was attempting to do with the shoes, maybe I'm just not succeeding! The 25 degree temperature swing is throwing me off.

Serious question, do you often find public toilets with bidets?? I don't think I've seen that.

Jewelry for feeling dressier is a great idea. That is probably something I would look to buy there, simple to carry home. Personally I actually like that idea better than buy clothes there, because while I'm fighting all my desires to take a lot of clothes, I try not to buy a lot of clothes.

Thanks for your suggestions!

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.

Ah no sorry I should have included a link-- here!

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/CriminalKraken · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I've been exfoliating with a sugar scrub and/or viscose cloth, dropping on a little vitamin c serum, slathering on a bunch of coconut oil, and then putting my hands into regular plastic gloves and going to sleep.

I'm not sure if every step is necessary or even really contributes, but it's a nice bedtime ritual. My hands and cuticles have never been happier! Plus I can still use my phone and laptop in my gloves... so it doesn't interrupt my normal insomniac routine : D

I have mild KP, but my bumps are completely gone since I started using these towels. They're also called Italy towels, Turkish towels, Hammam or Hamam towels, or Kese mitts. But these are the cheapest ones.

It's really gross seeing all the grey balls of dead skin come off you but oh so satisfying. They make my skin feel softer than a baby. They're also great for staving off ingrown hairs in the bikini area. They keep my elbows and knees from looking dark or ashy, help lotion sink in better...they're just awesome.

Just soak in the tub or stand under the shower for ten minutes or so, and use these before you soap up in a back and forth motion. I use them about twice a week.

u/azngirlLH · 2 pointsr/AsianBeauty

u/Blunderbeast · 2 pointsr/muacjdiscussion

For a "scrub," I have eschewed various "scrubby" products, and use a Korean scrub glove. You can get a package of 4 at Amazon for like, $6.00 USD. here: (not affiliated). Bought a set for my sister, too, who constantly complains about rough knees/elbows. Anyway, these are cheap and they are simply wonderful. I've been a dry-brusher for decades, and I've replaced that with these. Easier to use, you can sort of choose how "scrubby" you want to go, and my skin feels like the proverbial baby's bottom. HIGHLY recommend.

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

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! :)

u/CoraZin · 2 pointsr/MtF

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.

u/Teekayuhoh · 2 pointsr/AsianBeauty

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.

I have used the gloves before too, but what I really like is using an Italian cloth. You can get them, ironically, at a lot of Asian supermarkets or online:

They last a really long time and are good for scrubbing other places especially in the winter when skin tends to get dry.

I have also mixed sugar, oil (I used coconut), and a teaspoon of lemon juice to exfoliate before I shave and then exfoliate a second time and shave again. It really makes your legs (and armpits if you can stand it) smooth!

Another bonus is you can go longer between shaves.

u/RestingGrinchFace- · 2 pointsr/askwomenadvice

Do you exfoliate regularly? Try using an exfoliating washcloth daily and a sugar scrub before shaving. I still got ingrown hairs with epilating but exfoliating made a notice difference.

I couldn't find the washcloth I have but this one has rave reviews: Korean Exfoliating Bath Washcloth [4 pcs] (Green) by TeChef Home

u/FancyLlama · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I don't know if you've tried already, but an italy towel may be exactly what you need. I've had keratosis pilaris for years on the backs of my arms and my legs.

What I found to be terrific for it was an italy towel. You can get them very cheap on amazon. The idea is to soak in a bath for a good 20-30 minutes (make sure that area of your body is submerged) and then scrub the area with the cloth in circular motions. It works most effectively without soap for me, and I've heard that from others as well. You can try either method. I just soak it in warm water. Often, the dead skin just rolls off and you feel soft as a baby afterward. It's very satisfying. Here's the link:

I also suggest Amlactin. It is a body lotion with lactic acid and lots of people have had success with it when it comes to KP/textured skin. It exfoliates very well.

Prepwork: EXFOLIATE. In your morning shower (I recommend showering in the morning, if you're worried about all-day-smells), scrub your armpits, back, chest, feet, and anywhere else that may be a bit sweaty over the course of the day with an exfoliating pad and soap. This will remove dead skin cells, which are what stench-causing bacteria love to eat. Swab your underarms with a touch of rubbing alcohol before applying your deodorant to kill off any lingering bacteria. Moisturize to avoid causing further dead cells.

Wash behind and around your ears, groin, butt and feet thoroughly with soap.

Powder your unmentionables (groin and buttocks)with talc-free powder- generally I use Arm & hammer.

Make sure you're wearing clean underwear and socks and undershirts. I re-wear pants and some shirts several days at a time before washing, but some of my shirts get pit-stank after only 1 wear so those go right into the wash. If you have lingering or chronic pit-stank on your shirts, get some sports-specific detergent, scrub a bit with some water into the pits, and let them sit half an hour before washing. Don't let it sit too long or it can stain/bleach the fabric. You could do this with baking soda and water, too, with varying degrees of effectiveness.

Throughout the day: Baby wipes are a big part of my day if I'm going to be running around a lot- use them to wipe anything that could be gathering sweat, and places where fabric rubs agaisnt your body. Ladies may suffer some bra-sweat concerns and not realize it, so that's an important area to tend to. Use one after using the bathroom to be extra fresh. I prefer mine unscented because I don't care for the smell of msot baby wipes.

Re-applying deodorant at midday (or every 2-3 hours if you're super sweaty) can help, too. Using a nice, clean-smelling lotion that is good quality so the scent lingers but isn't overwhelming.

You can add essential oils to your wash to make your clothes smell good long after drying.

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?

I get this during the summer. It's from sweat being trapped under the skin and irritating the area. I usually have to make a conscious effort to scrub off the dead skin cells with a scrubbing towel every shower. Something rough like this:

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/TheDenzelz · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Korean exfoliating cloths. At the end of a shower gently exfoliate you face with it, at first it will only make your skin feel smoother but over time it'll start to buff out scaring and whatnot.

Best part is they're only like $5 on amazon

Japanese bath salts?
Something like this, they come in individual packets so would be easy to split up:
I have a box of those and the Tabino Yado ones at home, I like both brands. I just clicked the first ones I saw come up with a Prime tag, the box I have says they're made in China and the Tabino Yado ones are Japanese, just in case that matters.

Maybe some of those viscose towels? I'm giving a few out to my sisters in their Christmas packages this year. I have these ones:

u/CanuckLoonieGurl · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

These things are amazing as far as exfoliating goes. I wouldn't recommend on your face (well I do very gently), but they use these at Korean spas, and Korean homes everywhere I'm sure. But after being in the shower for a bit, just exfoliate your whole body with this and all the dead skin will come off. There is no they cloth like it. The ones at the grocery store do not compare. I do it about once a week. And then use coconut oil right after the shower. I find non exfoliated skin just feels the worst.

u/111tacocat111 · 1 pointr/everymanshouldknow

Favorite all over body exfoliating skin scrub cloth is about $0.75/piece and you can stick your bar of soap inside of it so you never lose the little baby pieces of soap.

u/CPTNKJ89 · 1 pointr/AskWomen

Face masks! My favorite at home mask is honey and crushed banana. Makes your skin feel super smooth plus you can eat the leftovers.

Once a week I deep exfoliate and then moisturize my entire body with one of these. They're cheap and they leave my skin baby dolphin smooth.

Nails and eyebrows can make a huge difference. Take some time for maintenance. I always feel put together after I have my nails and brows done.

Drink plenty of water

Cut down on alcohol!

Hit the gym hard! I feel amazing after a great workout.

Sunscreen!!!! Skincare is essential! your dermis is the largest "organ" you have! Moisturize more than just your face! Take care of your hands, neck, and chest!

Hot herbal teas really add something extra to my down time.

Make sure your cloths fit. I find really great pieces at thrift stores and have them tailored so they fit. My four dollar blazer is from the loft and fits like a glove.

Meal planning I'm less frazzled when I don't have to worry about what I'm going to eat on top of everything else. Plus it saves you money and makes it easier to eat healthy.

Take care of your feet and titties by investing in quality bras and shoes, your back will thank you later.

When it comes to makeup only highlight one main feature at a time. Going bold on eyes? Go more natural/neutral with your lips. And vice versa.

How do you exfoliate? That chemical exfoliating cream/soap can be expensive. Maybe before that you could try [Italy Towels]( pcs Asian Exfoliating Bath Washcloth - Red & Green which are cheap and were a total game changer for me.

I discovered them when lived in Korea, everyone uses these to exfoliate their body weekly. You can go to a spa/bath (jimjilbang) there, and pay someone to scrub you down with one of these. It's AMAZING how much dead skin you'll see come off. They have totally saved my legs and I no longer get little bumps or ingrown hairs. I just use the italy towel once at week at the end of my shower.

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!

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/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.

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/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.

u/M1Ch1N · 1 pointr/Accutane

Just posted my routine in another thread! Its also important to make sure you GENTLY exfoliate the dead, dry skin once in a while because products will not seep into your skin if you have a layer of dead flaky skin on top. When I say GENTLY, I mean GENTLY. As in, using very light pressure and circular motions.

I usually gently exfoliate with regular face soap, , using an exfoliating towel in the shower, . Put some soap on the towel and exfoliate gently.

For skin, this is what I have found to work best for me. Currently on month 7, 30mg.


The micellar water works for removing make up, but does not remove waterproof mascara. Use this both morning and night. If I just exfoliated, I will skip this step and go straight to toner.




I've tried other combinations and this seems to work the best for me.

For body lotion:

u/Kilayi · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Try a Korea Towel!

I’ve been using one for a few months and I can’t stop feeling how smooth my legs are. Obviously this is only intended for body and non sensitive skin such as your face. All you need to do is take a nice hot shower or bath, and after you’ve soaked for a little while, just scrub. Dead skin will just come off in little bits. I seriously recommend these to everyone, especially if you have chronic dry spots, mine were my elbows and shins, and everything is so much better now!

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.

I’ve got this which is similar:

Highly recommend. Wife liked it enough to buy another for herself.

Brooklyn Bamboo Bath Towels SOFT

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!!

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

The pillow changes pattern at over 30°C degree. Human piss is at around 32°C-38°C.

So, no, they would not need an actual washing to make the Waifu undress. I'll let you think about it.

For kp on my arms I use a Salux cloth[] and a sulfate free body wash (Dove sensitive skin). When I do it consistently it’s helped with the bumpiness but I find that chemical exfoliation helps a lot too. I use AmLactin right after the shower for that.

The Cotton Made In Africa initiative helps sustainably build the economies of west African countries.

You can support them by buying these towels, which are amazingly high quality. My Christmas shopping last year lasted 20 minutes because every person on my list got towels. Everyone loved them.
