An Ode To Korean Scrub Towels

These ultra-abrasive towels are a staple in Korean spas. If you've ever been to one - you know. A lot of ANSHI's inspiration to use pink Himalayan salt comes from Korean Spas and their bathhouse culture. It's truly a wonderful experience, and Koreans take self care and spa days to a whole other level. The first time ever going was like a spa playground for adults - and Korean spas surely aren’t for the shy. Nudity at public bathhouses is very normal in the wet rooms. In the dry rooms you can find people snacking, lounging, napping on the floor, or roaming between the hot pink salt rooms and ice rooms. 

Body scrub, or SeShin in Korean, is an intense cleansing process that involves being rubbed all over with a sandpaper-like texture to scrub away the body of all the dirt and layers of dead skin that accumulate naturally.

Essentially, the Korean scrub towel, or mitt, sloughs away any dead skin cells in an invigorating way. The benefits of Korean body scrubs include smoothing out dry patches, lightening unwanted pigmentation, improving circulation of blood and lymph nodes, reducing water weight, preventing wrinkles, reducing cellulite, getting rid of toxins and waste. 

The towel is more abrasive than your average washcloth, making it ideal for exfoliation. Perfect for people with sensitive skin that want a deeper scrub without using any harsh products or chemicals. Combined with ANSHI's all natural rubs it's a one of a kind scrub experience that will leave your skin feeling buttery smooth and smelling amazing - not to mention you'll sleep like a baby.

Pro-tip: only use 1-2 times a week to avoid over-exfoliating (which can do more damage than good). Also, never use this on your face! It's way too rough.

Less expensive than getting a Korean body scrub at the spa and nearly as effective at home! We are including a free Korean scrub towel with any ANSHI Soothing Lavender purchase for Labor Day Weekend. Click here to shop now.
