Soften your skin with water only - Go into the shower, bath or steam for 5-1 minutes. Do not apply any soaps or lotions to the body. The fabric relies on friction. Soaps/lotions create a film which make the skin surface too slippery for the fabric to grab the skin. Step away from water – Turn off the shower and squeeze away excess water from the mitt, leaving mitt slightly damp. Remove layers of dead skin - Exfoliate using vigorous, upward and downward strokes until you see dead skin cells roll away. Repeat for each section of your body. The more pressure you apply, the better the results.
