Do you need to use bodywash with these gloves?

Koya gloves are a type of exfoliating gloves that are commonly used in Korean beauty routines. They are designed to help remove dead skin cells and promote smoother, softer skin.

When body wash is used with Koya gloves, it can create a barrier between the skin and the gloves, making it harder for  fabric to effectively exfoliate the skin. In addition, the ingredients in the body wash can also interact with the fabric and cause it to break down over time, reducing the effectiveness of the gloves.

To get the best results from Koya gloves, it is generally recommended to use them without body wash. You can use the gloves on their own, or with a small amount of water or a gentle cleanser to help remove dirt and oil from your skin.

Can I use KOYA exfoliating gloves on my tattoos?

New ink:

It is not recommended to use KOYA exfoliating gloves on fresh tattoos or on tattoos that are still healing.

Exfoliating gloves may irritate the skin that is not healed and cause discomfort, which can impede the healing process of the tattoo. It is best to wait until the tattoo is fully healed before using exfoliating gloves.

If you are unsure if your tattoo has fully healed, it is always best to consult with your tattoo artist or a dermatologist for advice.

Older tattoos & healed tattoos:

Removing dead skin can help a tattoo look better by enhancing the visibility of the tattoo's details and colors. When a tattoo is first applied, the ink is deposited into the deeper layers of the skin, and a layer of dead skin cells forms on top. If this layer of old skin is not removed, it can obscure the details of the tattoo and make the colors look less vibrant.

By regularly exfoliating the skin around a tattoo, you can help to reveal the fresh, vibrant ink beneath. However, it is important to wait until the tattoo has fully healed before exfoliating the area, as exfoliating too soon can damage the healing skin and cause the ink to fade or blur.

What is the best way for an athlete to use KOYA Exfoliating gloves?

Athletes can benefit greatly from using KOYA exfoliating gloves to maintain healthy skin. Here are some tips on how athletes can use these gloves effectively:
  1. Use the gloves before and after workouts: Exfoliating before workouts can help remove dead skin cells and unclog pores, which can help prevent breakouts caused by sweat and dirt. Exfoliating after workouts can help remove sweat, dirt, and oil that may have accumulated on the skin.

  2. Focus on areas prone to breakouts, or ideally your entire body: Athletes may be prone to breakouts on areas such as the back, chest, and shoulders due to sweat and friction from clothing. Use the gloves on these areas to help prevent breakouts.

  3. Be gentle on sensitive areas: Avoid using the exfoliating mitt on sensitive areas such as the face and areas with open cuts or sunburn. Also, avoid using the gloves just before shaving.

  4. Use with a hydrating lotion: After exfoliating, use a hydrating lotion to help nourish and protect the skin. KOYA body lotion is a great option as it is designed to be used after exfoliating. Using a lotion promotes healthy skin & avoids your skin becoming dry.

  5. Replace gloves regularly: To maintain their effectiveness, replace the gloves every 4-6 months.

Will exfoliating with KOYA Gloves help make my skin look better?

Exfoliating with KOYA gloves can help make your skin look better by removing old skin cells, which can improve skin texture, tone, and overall appearance.
By using the exfoliating mitt regularly, you can also improve blood circulation and stimulate new skin cell growth, leading to healthier, smoother, and softer skin. It is important to use the gloves as directed and to avoid sensitive areas or over-exfoliating, as this can cause irritation or damage to the skin.
Additionally, using a hydrating lotion (like our residue free KOYA body lotion) after exfoliating, can help lock in moisture and further improve the look, tone and feel of your skin.

Should I use KOYA exfoliating mitts to prevent ingrown hairs?

Yes, exfoliating with KOYA exfoliating mitts can help prevent ingrown hairs. Ingrown hairs occur when hair follicles become clogged with dead skin cells and oil, leading to hair growing back into the skin instead of out of it.

By exfoliating regularly with the KOYA mitts, you can remove the dead skin cells that can contribute to clogged follicles, allowing hairs to grow out more easily and reducing the likelihood of ingrown hairs. However, it's important to be gentle when using the mitts to avoid irritating the skin, which can actually make ingrown hairs worse.

How often should I use KOYA exfoliating gloves if I use gradual tan?

Whether you use a self tan, a spray tan, or you use our stink-free KOYA gradual self tan, it is recommended to exfoliate before the first application to ensure an even and natural-looking tan.

After that, you can continue to exfoliate with KOYA exfoliating gloves 1-2 times a week to maintain the evenness of your tan and prevent any patchiness or streaking.

However, it's important to note that excessive exfoliation can also cause the tan to fade more quickly, so be sure to monitor your skin's reaction and adjust your exfoliation frequency accordingly. 

If prepping for a spray tan, here are some tips to prepare ahead of time for your spray tan:

Exfoliate: It's important to exfoliate your skin a day or two before your spray tan appointment. Use a gentle exfoliating scrub or a KOYA exfoliation glove to remove dead cells and create a smooth surface for the spray tan to adhere to.

Shave or wax: If you plan to shave or wax any particular body parts before your spray tan, do it at least 24 hours before your appointment. This will give your skin time to recover and prevent any irritation that could interfere with the tan.

Skip using any lotion or moisturizer on the day of your spray tan appointment, as this can interfere with the absorption of the tanning solution. Instead after your tan has developed (and after your next shower) use your KOYA lotions to maintain your tan, the best part? KOYA lotions are residue free, & won't leave you with clogged pores.
