When I was getting sugared recently by Lindsay Leggett at The Hive Salon I picked up an exfoliating mitt and I am naturally bursting to tell you all about it because it’s the rolls Royce of exfoliating mitts and here’s why…
They’re made from a recycled non -porous hard plastic, which means it’s not possible for your dead skin to get trapped in them, so they’re ALWAYS CLEAN.
The company used to make mattresses for burns patients, that’s how clean we’re talking. That’s really important when you’re using something to slough off dead skin, a bath pouf or nylon gloves are trapping your dead skin cells in them, then you’re leaving that in a dark, warm, wet environment where mildew and bacteria can grow.
DESIGN:*Flexible Fusion – Bonded Honeycomb
The company who makes them supracor studied the nature-proven hexagonal structure of honeycomb and adapted it for commercialization.
Bees are accomplished mathematicians and architects and the hexagonal honeycomb structure they have chosen to build for the storage of honey in their hives allows them to store the greatest amount of honey with the least amount of wax required to create the comb. It is an extremely efficient design.
Developing a revolutionary technique of fusion bonding, supracor are able to produce the honeycomb cellular matrix without the need for adhesives. This has been possible due to an advanced class of materials called thermoplastics.
SO WHAT ARE THEY GOOD FOR:
They’re great for exfoliating before a spray tan
They’re great for sugared areas to prevent ingrown hairs
For men who shave to the skin – for getting a smoother shave
For keratosis pilaris – which are the red bumps on the back of arms and thighs
Great for dry brushing and lymphatic drainage
Basically, they are the Rolls Royce of scrubbies really.
*Chanel buys a few thousand every few years, they use them in their spas for treatments!
The ultimate body exfoliator features both a soft and firmer version of Stimulite honeycomb. The flexing action of the honeycomb cells exfoliates the skin while stimulating blood flow to tissue. This helps to breakdown the toxins that produce cellulite. Can be used wet or dry. (Dry brushing with upward strokes towards the heart promotes blood flow.) The perforated cells create a foamy lather with just a pinch of soap. They are naturally antifungal, antibacterial and mildew resistant.
SpaCells® Facial Sponge
The facial sponge is the one that I started out using and it not only cleans and removes make-up, but also exfoliates and massages your skin too, stimulating blood and lymph flow to decrease puffiness, eliminate toxins and promote cellular regeneration.
You can use it every day and you will notice your skin becoming much smoother and softer over time. One side is for cleansing and the other is for exfoliating. SpaCells come with instructions for giving yourself a 5-minute rejuvenating facial.
The small three-finger mitt is €15, all the rest are €35, they can buy in The Hive Salon or via email with PayPal.
