Hamam exfoliating gloves, also known as kessa gloves, are a traditional tool used in Moroccan hammam (bathhouse) rituals for exfoliating and cleansing the skin. They are typically made from a rough, natural material such as sisal or loofah and are used in combination with black soap, also known as beldi soap, to gently remove dead skin cells and impurities from the skin.
The exfoliating gloves are used in a circular motion over the entire body, focusing on areas such as the elbows, knees, and feet. The process is often followed by a full-body massage with argan oil or other moisturizing oils to hydrate and nourish the skin.
Hamam exfoliating gloves are considered to be a natural and effective way to achieve smooth and radiant skin. The rough texture of the gloves helps to remove dead skin cells, while the black soap and oils used in the process help to nourish and hydrate the skin. The use of these gloves has been a traditional practice in Morocco for centuries and is now becoming popular worldwide as an alternative method of exfoliation.
It's recommended to use the gloves once or twice a week, and to be gentle while using them to avoid any irritation or damage to the skin. It's also important to use them in combination with black soap and oils for best results.
