Hey up! If you have one of these in the shower..... bin it, QUICK!!!

Body puff, shower cloud, buffer, loofah, cleaning candy floss…whatever you want to call it, they are breeding grounds for bacteria!

Dermatologists have suggested that we never use these mesh germ cages as they breed and grow a lot of bacteria in just one night.

According to The Sun and Unilad, it’s estimated 98 per cent of dermatologists would recommend you never use a shower puff, and Expert J. Matthew Knight, from the Knight Dermatology Institute, says they can do more harm than good.

We use them to exfoliate and scrub off dead skin, but those cells get caught in the folds of the netting.  Nasty!!
