How to care for your Lüfka

image55

First, get your Lüfka wet

Lüfkas are incredibly easy to use and safe for all skin types. Run your  Lüfka under water and let the willow bark fibers absorb the water. You will be surprised by how flexible and soft your lüfka will become. Willow bark fibers are incredibly absorbent.    

Apply your favorite body wash

Now that your Lüfka is wet, apply your favorite liquid body wash and lather. If you prefer to use a bar of soap, there is is a hole on the top of the lüfka under the handle. You can leave the soap inside of your lüfka.    

Start with your face

After your lüfka is all lathered up, start by scrubbing your face. Scrub in back and forth as well as circular motions all over your face, ears, and neck.  

*Please do this at least twice to really flush all of the dirt and oil out of your pores.  

Work your way down your body

Now that your face is all clean, work your way down your neck, arms, chest, back, legs, and feet.  

*Please do this at least twice to enjoy the benefits of deep exfoliation. 


*It is a good idea to scrub rigorously down the side of your body with your arm lifted. This area is where the majority of our lymph nodes are located in the body. Scrubbing your lymphatic system daily will help boost your immune system and cleanse your lymphatic system. Another area that has a high concentration of lymph nodes is the inner thighs. Scrub this area rigorously to enjoy a deeper sense of well being. 

Hot and Cold Shower Regiments

Hot and cold shower regiments are not only highly beneficial but also invigorate the senses and boost your immune system. Lüfkas were designed to be used with this type of bathing routine. 


*Follow all of the below mentioned directions before doing a hot and cold shower regiment. 


After your body has been fully exfoliated, turn the shower to a temperature that is as hot as you can stand without burning yourself. Please be careful not to burn yourself. Turn the temperature up slowly. Stand in the hot water for approximately 60 seconds. After you have been under the hot water for approximately 60 seconds, start turning the shower to a temperature that is as cold as you can stand and stand under the cold water for approximately 60 seconds. Repeat these steps for 3 cycles of hot and 3 cycles of cold. 


*In the morning, end on a cold cycle to feel invigorated to start your day. At night, end with a hot cycle to help you fall asleep faster. 

 

After Shower Care

After you are done taking a shower or bath, please rinse all of the soap out of your lüfka. Ring it out and reshape it (pull it back to its original shape). Hang it up by both handles. 


*If some of the fibers start to loosen on your  lüfka, you can cut the loose fibers with scissors and it will look and feel just like new.
