How to use your MicrodermaMitt® for best results and to visibly see dead skin cells coming off, follow the instructions below.
Use ONLY WATER on the Mitt.
SOFTEN YOUR SKIN WITH WATER ONLY – Go into the shower for several minutes Do not apply any soaps or bath gels to your body. The floss fibers rely on friction to grab dead skin cells and soaps/bath gels create a coating which makes the skin surface too slippery for the fabric to grab it.
STEP AWAY FROM WATER – Turn off the shower or step away from it completely and squeeze excess water from the Mitt, leaving it only slightly damp. Avoid drying yourself off and make sure that your skin remains moist. Wrap elastic around wrist to secure and begin rubbing the Mitt up and down your body using long and firm strokes.
REMOVE LAYERS OF DEAD SKIN – Begin to rub the Mitt up and down your body using long and firm strokes. Continue rubbing using vigorous upward and downward and side to side strokes until you see dead skin cells rolling off. Repeat for each section of your body excluding your face. The more pressure you apply, the better the results.
BE EXTRA GENTLE ON YOUR SENSIVITE AREAS – This is especially important when using the Ultra Body Mitt. You may notice your skin start to peel after a few minutes. Avoid rinsing the peeling skin off your body as these skin particles will help in achieving complete exfoliation.
CLEANSE AND MOISTURIZE – Once you have achieved your desired level of exfoliation, wash your body with your usual soap/cleanser to wash away the skin particles and impurities. Pat or dry yourself and apply your favorite body oil and/or moisturizer.
CONTINUE USE – Continue using one a week to maintain smooth and healthy skin.
CLEANING THE MITT – Handwash your Mitt using natural soap and hand your Mitt to air dry. Replace every 6 months.
- Avoid using your Mitt on any sored, open skin or wounds, including sunburned or inflamed skin.
- Skin must be free/clean of any soaps, salts, lotions prior to use.
- Skin peeling depends on your skin type. Your skin may not peel if you are dry brushing, using a daily exfoliator or if your skin is too damp.
- Visible skin peeling results are not guaranteed. Rest assured that your skin will be exfoliated and noticeably smoother and softer regardless of visible skin peeling occurs.
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 smooth and healthier skin underneath.
Why is MicrodermaMitt better than other exfoliation products?
The MicrodermaMitt is 100% Natural, Dermatologist Recommended and hypoallergenic. Using only WATER, the MicrodermaMitt goes deeper than traditional exfoliation including other mitts, gloves, scrubs, brushes and even at-home microdermabrasion kits. 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.
Unlike facial and body scrubs, loofahs and dry brushing, the Floss Silk along with its proprietary weaving technique grabs dead skin cells, instantly sloughing them off revealing smooth, newer and healthier skin underneath.
Immediately after the first use, your skin will appear smoother and brighter without the use of any chemicals.
What is Floss Fiber?
Unlike other textiles such as; nylon, rayon, or even loofahs, the 100% vegan Floss Fibers will not cause micro-tears in the skin. When the floss fiber is wet it swells, forming a gripping action that quickly and effectively lifts and removes dead skin cells.

How do MicrodermaMitt exfoliating Mitts 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.
I have sensitive skin, can I still use the MicrodermaMitt?
Yes! Microdermamitt is an all natural product with no chemicals or harsh cleansers to disrupt pH levels. It is also recommended by dermatologists for all skin types.
Can I still use my skin care treatment products?
Absolutely. In fact, your topical skin care products will penetrate deeper, giving you better results.
When will I see results?
Immediately after using the Mitt, you will see and feel smoother, silkier skin with a healthy glow. Although the amount of exfoliation depends on frequency of exfoliating, skin type and area of body or face, some may visibly see dead skin roll off while others exfoliate microscopically. Steaming your skin prior to exfoliation helps soften and prepares your skin for a more thorough exfoliation.
What should I do after I use the MicrodermaMitt?
Use the MicrodermaMitt as directed on the carton to keep your skin looking its best. After use, you may use your body wash, soap or cleanser of choice. We also recommend using a moisturizer to condition skin after use.
How do I clean the MicrodermaMitt after use?
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, rinse it thoroughly to remove any soap residue before the next use. Hang to dry. DO NOT MACHINE WASH.
How often should I exfoliate?
We recommend exfoliating the face once per week and the body 1-2x per week. However, since everyone’s skin is different, we recommend following the instructions on the back of the package to start. After you've used the mitt a couple of times, you should be able to determine what is right for your own skin.
How long do Mitts last?
Each Mitt should last 6 months or more, depending on how often you use it.
