“The one thing that will serve your skin more than any potion or lotion is a soft face washcloth."
Imagine being able to go out every day with your face feeling soft, fresh and glowing. Isn’t that every girl’s dream? While some days our face feels like that of Venus, other days the skin can feel like an old bedsheet.
So, is there an easy hack to fresh skin every day? As I found out a few months ago, there actually is.
Turns out, you do not always need to use hydrating steam or a super expensive nourishing serum to give your skin a beautiful glow. A good quality facial towel is all that many of us need to get a vibrant skin.
Natural beauty products, pampering massages and saunas are great. But regular pure skincare is what you’ll need for that everyday radiant skin. And the one thing that will serve your skin more than any potion or lotion is a soft face washcloth.
Face Washcloth Benefits that’ll leave you with a vibrant looking skin
- A Deep Cleanse
A soft washcloth for face will allow you to give your face an overall deep-clean. It will help cleanse the skin on your face, neck and décolletage. Wash your face with warm water to soften the skin’s surface and pores. Then gently rub in your cleanser with a flannel or a soft abrasive muslin but best with a soft cotton facecloth.
I prefer using the facecloth (face towel) as it works best to unclog my pores.
2. Gently exfoliates your skin
Face washcloths may be your best exfoliating friend yet. The natural fibres of the fabric help to gently remove excess oil, dirt and build-up. Exfoliating with a facecloth will get rid of the dead cells that are causing your skin to look dull and aged.
Pro tip: We are talking about your face. Get a quality soft cotton facecloth instead of a bargain muslin that may end up tugging and tearing your skin.
3. Suits all skin types, best for sensitive skin
Soft-type face washcloths make a perfect alternative to scrubs and acids for those with sensitive skin. Dermatologists agree that all skin types benefit from using a soft facecloth. Scrubbing sensitive skin with anything else may cause irritation.
If you have sensitive skin, make sure you wash your washcloths for face regularly or dirt and skin cells will build-up. It’s easy to wash these clothes, simply throw it in the wash and air dry.
4. One that works with all types of cleansers
Not all facecloths suit all cleansers. Unless you don’t mind having a collection of facecloths to go with different cleansers, get one that will suit all types, preferably cotton towel-types.
This is usually great for those who cannot afford much time on skincare. A single face washcloth will get all the basic cleansing and exfoliating tasks done.
Even those who partake a full skincare session can get all 3 steps done with one cloth.
5. Look younger with glowing skin in a SNAP
Most of us know that it’s a dread even thinking about the time it takes to go through the whole skincare routine. Introducing a soft all natural facecloths makes the whole process a lot quicker.
Beauty hack: Wet the facecloth with warm water and throw it on your face. Then gently start pressing it down on your skin. This will open up the pores and loosen the dirt. Do this before applying your remover.
