A Turkish Kese scrubber is a type of exfoliating mitt or glove used in traditional Turkish baths or hamams. It is typically made of coarse fabric and is used to scrub the skin in order to remove dead skin cells and leave the skin feeling smooth and refreshed. The Kese is usually used in conjunction with soap and water to create a lather, which is then applied to the skin in circular motions to exfoliate and cleanse the skin. TEMIZ recommends to use our Kese scrubber only with warm water and no Soap, our Hamam and Artisanal soap are perfect for a finishing touch at the end of a ritual :
Start by filling a basin or tub with pleasantly hot/warm water. Soak , beath, meditate.
Soak the kese in the water to soften the fabric.
Using circular motions, applying gentle pressure begin to scrub your skin starting from the feet and working your way up the body. Be sure to pay extra attention to areas that are dry or rough. Avoid sensitive thin skin aras like lips, face, neck.
Rinse off the dead skin cells with warm water.
Repeat the process as many times as desired.
After use, make sure to wring out the Temiz Kese and hang it to dry.
You can safely lather yourselves with one of our soaps for a complete Temiz ritual.
At Temiz we strongly recommend hydrating your skin postbath with our squalane or Hydrator Beden blend.
It is important to note that the Temiz Kese is a very abrasive tool and you should use it with caution. If you have sensitive skin, you may want to try using the Kese less frequently or on less sensitive areas, such as your feet.
