Exfoliators for Face and Body
Did you know that the Spa at Fearrington carries several different kinds of exfoliators for your face and body? We have some wonderful natural fiber accessories of wash clothes, mitts, bath gloves, and brushes. With that many choices, what is the benefit of each one? Let’s take a look to help you find the right one for you.
Exfoliators made from natural fibers and materials are best suited for you. A Sisal or Hemp material would be best for a gentler, everyday approach. Sisal is an all-natural, renewable fiber that comes from a plant of the agave family. Our Hemp Wash Mitt is hand-processed, hand-spun and hand woven by a Babushka collective in Romania. Materials such as horsehair or pumice would be on the more extreme side for a deep exfoliation.
Natural pumice stone is totally different from man0made pumice. This is formed in fiery volcanoes and launched into the sea. Each natural stone has its own texture, shape and character. These are long lasting and will not wear out. These are wonderful for elbows and feet.
We also carry a wash mitt created in Japan made from all natural fabric of a combination of traditional Japanese paper called Washi and the leaves of the Kumazasa plant. This Sasawashi mitt is a deep exfoliating body scrubber with natural antibacterial and deodorant power. This product comes in the form of a mitt, all over body towel or a face towel.
Sisal brushes are great for an all over body made with palm fibers. Using this type of brush can be with water or dry. Elemi carries a body detox skin brush that not only is for cleansing but helps to target cellulite. This dry brush is made from cactus bristle and is the firmest type of bristle. This is excellent for dry brushing all over body. This is perfect for improving your lymphatic drainage and removing toxins to help reduce the appearance of cellulite. Imagine, while you are exfoliating – you are promoting a general well-being for your body all through a dry brush!
