Fact: Our bodies don't get nearly as much love as our faces when it comes to skincare. Sure, our visages are more public—and, sigh, high maintenance—but the rest of our body has needs too. So if you're looking to make a change in pursuit of luminous angel skin, we'll let you in on a secret: Salux Nylon Japanese Washcloths.

They first cropped up on our radar when in an interview with Into the Gloss, actress Natalie Morales revealed that her once co-star Emma Stone had recommended them to her. In the post's comment section, readers were *raving* about them. One commenter used the hashtag #SaluxLife, while another claimed that because of these pastel-hued towels, her "bum will eternally be as soft as baby's." Uh, sold 🍑 🍑 🍑.

Since launching in the 1960's, Salux cloths have slowly risen to cult-status. Their special sauce, if you will, is a special patented texture, made from 60% nylon and 40% polyester, that gently exfoliates and sloughs away dead skin while boosting circulation for an ultra-smooth, ridiculously glow-y complexion.

And as it polishes the skin, it also helps cleanse it—sopping up oil, dirt, and bacteria, which is especially beneficial to acne-prone areas like the shoulders and back. As if that wasn't enough of a draw, these winners of The Japanese National Invention Award are also super cheap (about $7) and last forever because they're 1) durable and 2) easy to clean.

While you're not going to find these guys at a local drugstore, thanks to Amazon you can snap them up online. Just be careful not to buy knockoffs, which aren't made in Japan and don't give you nearly the same results.
