Scientists Are Urging Anyone Who Uses A Loofah To Throw It Out Or Prepare For The Worst


Many people love to use a loofah to exfoliate the skin. It leaves your skin feeling soft, and the brilliant puffs come in all different colors.

The convenient puffs hang easily on your water faucet, making it easy to grab, scrub and remove those dead skin cells that cause irritable skin. This can also boost circulation when you scrub your skin and slough off dead skin cells.

Unfortunately, according to dermatologists, 98% of them recommend you to toss the shower puffs in the garbage immediately.

One of the dermatologist from the Knight Dermatology Institute, J. Matthew Knight, was against in the use of loofahs.

According to him, after you use the puff to exfoliate your skin, those dead skin cells get trapped in the many layers of the puffs material.

All the moisture that remains in the aftermath of the warm water, causes bacteria to fester within the puffy layers, which leads to the growth of yeast and mold.

What's even more alarming is that the massive breeding ground grows within just a matter of hours.
After you shave, those colorful puffs has the potential of causing infections. Also, bacteria can get into the nicks and lead to some bad looking and feeling skin.

If you’re asking “what should I use to exfoliate my skin?”, there are many scrubbers out there that have positive benefits and will keep you free of infection.
