Loofah washcloth

It is good to do light rubbing with a washcloth made of grassy liana. And, although there are loofah washcloths of varying degrees of hardness, a certain rigidity of the structure of this indispensable attribute of the shower will facilitate peeling at home.  In our opinion, it is most convenient to use special loofah mittens designed for peeling.

The oil is applied with a cotton swab to the eyelashes, which are always cleaned of mascara. It is better to perform such a procedure in the evening, since for many this vegetable oil causes swelling of the eyes at night. However, in any case, try not to overdo it with its amount: you only need a little moisturizing. If the oil still collects in droplets, blot your eyelashes with a tissue.
