Have you ever noticed how most women have such soft, smooth skin? It’s not just a “woman thing” if that’s what you’re thinking. They take good care of their skin to make it soft and supple. And one of the best tools they use is a simple loofah. So if women love using loofahs, what’s the best loofah for men?
Loofahs are one of the most underrated hygiene items you can use to immediately transform rough, bumpy skin into skin that will make any woman want to touch you… a lot. They’re also usually super cheap and a no-brainer to use. So why not try one of our suggestions below?
The Best Loofah for Men with Sensitive Skin
Many men have sensitive skin that requires special treatment. According to several health experts, sensitive skin can be a symptom of several underlying conditions that require a dermatologic interference. So, assuming you already know the reason behind your sensitive skin, here are the best loofahs in the market:
You’ll love how soft and clean you'll feel after using this one. The exfoliating Japanese washcloth towel is the best bathing option for men with smooth skin who don't want any post-shower redness or itches.
It's elastic enough to wrap it around your back and large enough to reach hard-to-reach places and can be wrapped around your back like a towel.
It's made of skin-friendly material that promotes blood circulation, removes dead skin, and gives your skin a nice glow. You will find it a bit stiff at first, especially when dry, but it’s not too abrasive. It also suds up pretty fast when you wash it and, even when wet, it's still rough enough to get even the toughest sweat particles off your skin.
It's very lightweight and, and can stay with you for months if not years. It also doesn't smell bad after a while and doesn't harbor bacteria quickly. Throw it in the washing machine and it'll come out clean as new. It also dries very quickly which makes it a great option if you shower multiple times a day.
It comes in 3 colors so you can give one or more to your partner or other family members.
Also, say no to post-shower itches. Once you use it, you'll notice that your body, especially the back area, feels smoother than usual and less itchy which is great if you plan to use a post-bath moisturizer.
Kitsch is soft, and can even feel too gentle for some men, but it does a good job exfoliating your skin and making you feel soft like a baby.
This easy-to-clean, eco-friendly scrubber is made of recycled nylon that dries quickly and doesn’t leave any marks on the skin, and produces a lot of bubbles once you add water and soap to it. It’s very durable and keeps its shape for months without stretching out or tearing apart. It increases blood circulation and nourishes your skin with oxygen and other healthy nutrients and thus giving it a healthy glow.
What we liked the most is that it’s large enough to scrub your back and delicate areas, but not too large to make you feel like wearing a cloak. We also liked the small built-in pocket where you can put a soap or shampoo bar and scrub your whole body. The pocket holds the soap bar pretty well so don’t worry about dropping it in the shower. And, even if you’re not a big fan of soap bars, Kitsch also gives a good lather when used with shower gels or liquid soap. We also liked the big attached loop that you can use to hang and dry it instead of keeping it in the bathroom unattended.
The African Net Sponge is a great addition to your shower routine. It’s very lightweight and made of durable nylon which lasts longer and prevents mold buildup which makes you feel fresh and youthful for hours.
At first, it may feel rough on the skin so you need to soak it in warm water for 2-5 minutes before the first use but it softens within a couple of baths. It’s long and stretches easily to cover all difficult areas and, the best thing about it is that it lathers so well with little soap. In fact, this is what the company wrote on its website to promote the product:
"Only a small amount of body wash is needed to create a rich lather"
It dries quickly without leaving any bad smell even after months of usage and comes in a set of three that can be shared with your loved ones.
For those who hate long washcloths, this one won’t disappoint. The 5 Pack Exfoliating Face and Body Wash will make you excited to take a shower. It’s very lightweight and has a rough texture that isn’t abrasive or harsh on the skin – as long as you soak it before usage. It also says it can reduce cellulite but there’s no proof of this so far.
And, because it’s small, it’s very convenient for those who travel a lot. You can pack it in your bag and it still won’t lose its shape. It also dries very quickly and has reinforced edges to prevent unraveling. It’s also less likely to tear apart when put in the washing machine.
It’s budget-friendly as well. As you noticed from the name, it comes in 5 different colors so you can easily separate your own from your partner’s or kids. The only problem with it is the size. It’s very small and won’t cover your whole back but you can still use it to exfoliate your face or arms.
The Best Men’s Shower Scrubber
Some men prefer using scrubbers over loofahs because they harbor fewer bacteria and are more hygienic than loofahs and even washcloths. Scrubbers can also improve your shave by pushing the ingrown hairs to the surface of your skin which reduces skin bumps and post-shave redness. The good news?
We checked the market for the best men’s shower scrubbers and came up with these four products:
The Avilana Exfoliating body scrubber is by far one of the best scrubbers on the market. It’s made of 100% food-grade, non-toxic silicone which makes it free of BPA and BPS, and other harmful chemicals.
It comes in many colors and has two sides; the first has soft and flexible bristles that are 1 inch long and create a good lather. You can add your favorite shower gel to it and watch it make bubbles in no time. The second side is made of several circular nubs that feel great on the skin and can be used for a harsher scrub or to exfoliate your scalp. Those bristles don’t tear or break easily after months of usage and can handle temperatures up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit so don’t worry about washing them with warm water or running the scrubber through the dishwasher.
Size-wise, the Avilana scrubber is big enough to fit your palm and will give a fun feeling as you hold it in your palm and squish it. But even though it’s small and may not be useful for a back scrub, it scrubs pretty well and can easily give your skin a youthful feeling.
This one is a bit more expensive than most scrubbers but excellent at removing both fake tan and dead skin from your body. It also lasts longer than most scrubbers on the market. Unlike most plastic exfoliating gloves that are too abrasive, the Supracor Stimulite Bath Mitt is made of durable anti-tear thermoplastic that makes it reusable for months without losing its functions
To make the best out of it, take a warm shower first for five or ten minutes. Second, wet the gloves with just warm water then start scrubbing without using either soap or shower gel. Once you’re done, rinse your body in water and watch as dirt and dead skin roll off your body
Even though it’s kind of small and isn’t good for back scrubbing, the Innerneed scrubber is a great option if you’re looking for something for scrubbing your elbows, arms, and lower body. It’s made of high-quality, eco-friendly silicon that increases blood circulation, dries up pretty fast, and feels good as you run it against your body.
It’s round and comes with a grip handle on the back to give you more control over it as you scrub. It also lathers pretty fast and can be used even without soap or shower gel.
The best thing about this scrubber, however, is that it comes in a mini size with smaller bristles to use solely for scrubbing your face and a bigger scalp massager with larger bristles which you can use for exfoliating your scalp and to stimulate hair growth as well.
If you shave a lot, then you need the Dylonic exfoliating brush to overcome those post-shaving itches and razor bumps and have smooth, rash-free skin. I’ve been growing a beard for the last decade and I still bruise like a peach each time I shave my neck hair. Those bruises and razor bumps are irritating and don’t go even after applying a cooling gel.
The Dylonic brush is small enough to fit your hand and has soft silicon bristles that feel really good on the face, and comes with a grip on the back to slide your finger in and hold the brush as you scrub around your body.
It unclogs pores, increases blood circulation, and removes dead skin, but more importantly, it opens your skin pores so you can easily shave. You can use it before waxing, epilating, shaving, and tan spraying to exfoliate your skin. Simply. brush against your skin in light circular motions for 10 to 20 circles to open the pores and pull the ingrown hair out so you can shave smoothly while limiting any post-shaving bumps.
