Loofah brushes for all age groups & disability types
Are you missing out on your regular pedicures due to the coronavirus lockdown? You can still get a clean and scrubbed feeling with these accessories that are suitable for people of all ages and different needs.
Rushabh Desai, a Mumbai-based financial planner, regularly gets pedicures done at home. The lockdown has forced a stop to that practice, but Rushabh says some handy accessories can help. An organic loofah, he says, is a must have.
Rushabh has a rare neuromuscular disorder called GNE myopathy and uses a wheelchair. Check out Rushabh’s recommendation!
“The loofah I use really helps to remove the dead and dry skin from the feet without hurting and damaging the skin. The scrub gives a good massage like feeling removing all the itchiness from the feet. It also helps in opening up the skin pores and in improving blood circulation. This scrub is best used with warm water and a scrubber cream.”.
