She took to Instagram to explain that while it “scrubs dirt and dead skin cells off your body”, they can “get trapped in [a loofah’s] delicate weave”.

“Every time the loofah gets wet and does not dry properly, the trapped organisms grow due to the moisture,” the expert explained in a long caption.

“The coarse feeling of the loofah fibers may be too much and can damage skin over time, and cause permanent pigmentation, [which] is irreversible and difficult to treat,” she warned.
