Myth 1: Hammam scrub mitts are only used for exfoliation.

Myth 2: Hammam scrub mitts are harsh on the skin.

Myth 3: Hammam scrub mitts are only suitable for certain skin types.
Fact: They can be used on all skin types, including sensitive skin. Choose the right mitt for your skin type, as some may be too abrasive for certain conditions.
