Loofah is a climbing vine with fruits that look like cucumbers. The young fruit is edible (sometimes called “Chinese okra”), but when left to dry on the vine, the skin of the fruit becomes the product we refer to as a “loofah sponge.” Loofah is a wonderful exfoliating sponge that gently removes the surface layer of dead skin cells, leaving skin looking radiant, healthy, and smooth. Exfoliation enhances circulation, removes calluses, and helps to prevent ingrown hairs on the face and body. The outermost layer of your skin, the epidermis, naturally sheds dead skin cells. Normal friction removes some of these shed cells, but others remain in place, dulling your complexion or turning it ashy. Exfoliation helps this natural process along, using gentle friction to brush excess skin cells from the surface of your skin. Removing dead skin cells not only improves the look of your skin, it also sweeps away places where bacteria and soil could collect. Any friction on your skin increases localized blood flow. Capillaries, the tiny blood vessels closest to your skin, naturally expand when stimulated. You've made use of this response if you've tried to warm your hands by rubbing them together to create friction and stimulate blood flow. A loofah has a similar effect, stimulating increased circulation to areas that you scrub with it. Unlike harshly abrasive scrubbers and sponges, a loofah's firm but elastic fibers are round in cross section and are less likely to scratch skin.
