FAQ

Why Exfoliate?
Did you know that many skin conditions can be prevented and eliminated with proper exfoliation!

Exfoliation is one of the most commonly overlooked and neglected aspects of vital and healthy-looking anti-aging skin care.  It is one of the easiest and least expensive rituals you can add to your current skin care regimen, and brings about dramatic results for anyone - but especially those who have neglected this aspect of healthy skin in the past.  The accumulation and buildup of trapped impurities and dirt due to lack of proper removal and exfoliation tends to leave skin looking dry, dull, rough and uneven. It also results in clogged pores and blemishes.  Did you know that, at birth complete cell turnover takes approximately 2 weeks?  But, by the time you are 50 years of age, the same process takes 4-6 weeks.

Exfoliating can be compared to gardening.  When you dead-head or prune your flowers or plants, it stimulates the production of fresh, new flowers.  The same applies to your skin; when you exfoliate your skin, you help stimulate the production of new collagen, bringing fresh new skin to the surface.

Until the MicrodermaMitt came along, mechanical exfoliation meant using abrasive synthetic gloves, loofas, beads, creams with grounds seeds and pits, all of which causes micro-tears in the skin with only very little exfoliating.  The 100% Natural MicrodermaMitt exfoliates instantly and completely with just water!

1. What is the MicrodermaMitt?
 MicrodermaMitt is a revolutionary exfoliating and skin-revitalizing Mitt that helps maintain and repair skin, including skin that is damaged from the sun, scars, acne and the unwanted effects of aging as well as other skin conditions. The gentle abrasion removes the dead, outer layer of skin in order to stimulate and reveal new healthier skin underneath.

2. How does MicrodermaMitt work?
MicrodermaMitt  fibers swell when they get wet and form a gripping action with dead skin cells, thereby lifting and  rolling them off of your body. The skin is left smoother as the Mitt stimulates blood flow while it unclogs and cleans the pores. The increased blood flow encourages collagen formation thus firming and toning the epidermis. The result is smoother, healthier, and more radiant skin.

3. Are there risks with the MicrodermaMitt
The MicrodermaMitt is Dermatologist recommended, hypoallergenic and works great even for sensitive skin.  Do not used on sored or open skin.

4. Why is MicrodermaMitt better than other exfoliation and microdermabrasion treatments?
The MicrodermaMitt is 100% Natural, Dermatologist Recommended and hypoallergenic.  It goes deeper than traditional exfoliation including other mitts, gloves, scrubs, brushes and even at-home microdermabrasion kits. While using the Body Mitt, you will feel and/or see the rolls of dead skin being lifted off of your body. The longer you remain in the shower, the better the exfoliating experience. Since the skin on your face is much thinner, the microscopic pieces of skin will not been seen or felt while exfoliating with the Face or ZitMit, but you will definitely see and feel the difference in your skin after using.

The MicrodermaMitt is non-invasive, does not contain any chemicals, non-abrasive, and is an affordable and easy way to maintain beautiful and healthy skin at home.

5. Can I still use my skin care treatment products?
Absolutely. In fact your topical skin care products will penetrate deeper and therefore you will experience better results.

6. When will I see results?
Immediately after using the Mitt, you will see and feel smoother, silkier skin with a healthy glow.

7. What should I do after the MicrodermaMitt?
Use the MicrodermaMitt as directed on the carton to keep your skin looking its best.  To achieve and maintain the smoothest and healthiest skin, we also recommend using our DENIZIA Olive Oil Cleansing Bar and Olive Face & Body Oil for daily use to wash wish. You can always use the cleaning method of choice.

8.  How long will the MicrodermaMitts last?
This will vary by individual and how often the Mitt is used. Although the Mitt can actually last for a very long time; it will become less effective over time depending on how often you use it and your skin condition. Therefore, when you feel the Mitt is no longer providing the level of exfoliating that you desire, it's probably time to replace it. You might want to think of the Mitt like a piece of fabric or even very fine sandpaper; the more you rub with it, the more the fibers will wear down.

9.  How do I clean the MicrodermaMitt after use?
Rinse out thoroughly with warm water after each use.  A mild soap or hand soap may be used as well.  Make sure to rinse the MicrodermaMitt thoroughly when cleaning it with soap.  Hang to dry.  DO NOT PUT IN WASHING MACHINE.

Ichthyosis Users
Due to the amount of skin cells and the frequency of use, you may find it necessary to occasionally rinse your Mitts in a bleach solution to prevent any build up and staining. Place Mitts in a sink with a small amount of bleach and hot water and let soak for an hour. Rinse thoroughly in hot water and hang to dry. For further questions or suggestions, please contact us at: contact@microdermamitt.com

What is the difference between the Mitts?

ZitMit - The ZitMit designed to treat and prevent acne and breakout; the texture is thinner and less abrasive than the Face and Body Mitt. Daily use is recommended.

Face Mitt - The Facial Exfoliation Mitt is designed to keep your face and décolleté areas glowing and looking younger and healthier. It is slightly thicker and more abrasive than the ZitMit but still very gentle and can be used on even sensitive skin. It is recommended for every other day usage.

How do I use the Mitts?

Body Mitt-Rub the skin vigorously up and down and side to side until you see flakes and rolls of exfoliated skin and other impurities rolling off.  (The more pressure you apply, the better the results).

 Face Mitt and ZitMit-When using the Face Mitt and the ZitMit, you will apply gentle pressure on face due to the delicate and thinner skin.  You will not see flakes since the particles are extremely small.

CARING FOR YOUR MITT-After each use, rinse the Mitt thoroughly in hot or warm water and let air dry.  You may use a mild hand or body soap to cleanse the Mitt. If you use a soap to clean your Mitt, you must rinse it thoroughly to remove any soap residue before the next use.

Makeup Remover Mitt -Wet the Mitt with warm water (do not add soap or cleanser). Cleanse face as you would with a wash cloth including eyes. Flip Mitt over and go over face again to remove any traces left behind. Hand wash after each use with any bar soap or hand soap. Recommend using Denizia™ Natural Olive Oil Cleansing Bar for cleaning. Rub each side of the soiled Mitt on the Bar and then rub the Mitt together to completely remove stains and residue. Rinse thoroughly. May be machine washed. DO NOT USE FABRIC SOFTENER.
