Exfoliation removes dead cells from the skin's surface to improve its appearance and to prevent clogged pores and acne. It may also help combat the signs of aging by removing dull and damaged skin and encouraging the growth of new, healthy skin. Exfoliating gloves are designed for use with or without exfoliant scrubs, and most can be used on every part of your body. Wet the gloves and your skin with warm water. Apply a few drops of liquid soap or exfoliating scrub directly to the gloves or to your skin. Add more water if necessary to form a lather.
