I’m going to do a little feature on my, personal, Summer Beauty Must Haves. This post is part of that series.
A couple months ago I told you about my favorite product to use to exfoliate dry skin: Zakia’s Moroccan Black Soap with Argan oil. At the time, I used a wash cloth and small bath pouffe/loofah. Since then, though, I’ve received a Zakia’s Kessa Exfoliating Glove to try. Oh my goodness. That thing is amazing!
You put it on your hand and rub back and forth, gently. Very gently. Your skin will get quite red while you’re using it but as long as you’re gentle, it doesn’t hurt a bit. It gets red as it removes all that nasty, dry skin. And boy does it! You can literally see the dry skin sloughing off. To better show you what it looks like, I used it to remove self tanner I’d been using. Let’s face it, that self tan is great while it lasts but after awhile you realize you only have tan on parts of your legs. Or you just get tired of it. Or you build it too much and need to remove some of it. Either way, at some point, it’s time for the self tan to go. But it can be really hard to remove self tanner.
Not anymore. You can see the self tanner and dry skin in the photo below. It came right off with minimal rubbing. I washed with Zakia’s Moroccan Black Soap and then exfoliated and removed the tanner with the Kessa Glove. Just look!
You can see in this next photo the spots where I had removed the self tanner along with the areas it was still on my leg. Just gentle rubbing back and forth with the Kessa Glove took that stuff right off in one go. I’m impressed!
The Exfoliating Kessa Glove can be used alone or with Moroccan Black Soap. I love to use the two together, followed by Zakia’s 100% pure, organic Argan Oil (2 oz). The trio combined exfoliates my skin but then renews the moisture leaving my skin silky, soft and shiny.
Put some Black Moroccan Soap on a bath pouffe/loofah and you will get a great lather. The first time, I used a wash cloth and didn’t get a very good lather. Use the loofah pouffe. It works great!
Let it sit a few minutes. You’ll feel a little tingle while the Black Soap goes to work on your skin. Don’t worry, it’s olive oil so it’s just really absorbing and loosing up dead skin cells. After a few minutes, use the Kessa Glove, gently. You’ll see all that skin coming off. Then, rinse, dry and follow with the Argan Oil. Your skin will thank you!
Zakia’s Black Soap is a 100% natural plant product. Based on an olive oil pulp this soap is extremely rich in vitamin E. It is a great emollient, exfoliate and moisturizer.
And there you have it, my tips on how to remove self tanner.
Next week I’ll be showing you Zakia’s Moroccan Ghassoul Clay Mask. Stay tuned because this face mask is wonderful too!
