Body scrubs and exfoliators help get rid of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin and leave the skin soft and smooth, but what if you react badly to them or are not satisfied with the level of exfoliation they provide? This is where exfoliating towels come in.

An exfoliating towel is a washcloth designed to help remove dead skin cells, dirt, grime, and other impurities and leave you with brighter-looking skin. They are used two to three times a week in the shower and are suitable for all skin types.

If you want to starting using one, here are some exfoliating towels to consider purchasing.

Earth Therapeutics Organic Cotton Exfoliating Wash Towel

One exfoliating towel you should check out is the Earth Therapeutics Organic Cotton Exfoliating Body Towel. This towel is made with organic cotton and has hypoallergenic properties for those who are prone to skin allergies or have sensitive skin. It's easy and convenient to use as it comes with two hand straps.

To use this body towel, apply your body wash to the moist towel and then rub the washcloth all over the body. After you're done, rinse the towel and hang it to dry.

The Body Shop Body Polisher

The Body Shop Body Polisher is a great option for those with dry skin as its woven nylon material can create intense exfoliation. Unlike body towels made with cotton material, this nylon woven towel has a lighter texture.

This is recommend for users with very dry and rough skin that has lost its sheen due to the winter weather.

Even though exfoliating towels are used for cleansing, some of them are not easy to wash. The Body Polisher is not one of them, as it is machine washable for multiple uses.

Sutera Japanese Exfoliating Shower Scrub

Suitable for all skin types, the Sutera Japanese Exfoliating Shower Scrub is made of cross woven fibers for a deep exfoliating cleanse.

Based on the numerous five-star reviews on the brand's website, people love this product. According to Sutera, it will give you a clean and fresh feel after use. Unlike other body towels, this Sutera towel is fast drying, which makes it very convenient for reuse.

When using this exfoliating shower scrub, you can expect radiant skin, as it removes any unwanted dirt and impurities.

Bamboo Sisal Exfoliating Towel

The final exfoliating body towel on the list is the Bamboo Sisal Exfoliating Towel. It is perfect for users who love vegan and eco-friendly products.

Made with sisal, which is a plant from Mexico, its fibers can help remove dead skin cells and dirt. Sisal fibers in general are found in in many products, as they are durable, smooth, and compostable.

However, due to it being a natural product, the brand recommends replacing it every two to three months and letting it air dry.
