Quick Tips: Microfibre Cloths for Cleansing
time to cotton on
As long as my skin is not irritated I love a hot cloth cleanse with an oil or a balm, it's really quite therapeutic. But I find ordinary towel flannels too rough for my skin. That's why I use Emma Hardie Amazing Face Dual Action Professional Cleansing Cloths (pack of 3 for £15) - one side is a microfibre cloth which is much gentler than a regular flannel but just as effective, the other is a muslin cloth great for exfoliating lips, a congested t-zone and hardier bits of skin. They are a great investment for your cleansing routine - I have been machine washing the same six cloths for years but regular and cheaper microfibre cloths could serve you just as well! If my skin is being sensitive, irritated or sore, I will swap my cleansing cloth for large square cotton pads, the type you find in the babycare section of Superdrug (pack of 50 for £1.49). Using one large cotton pad is just more satisfying than having to use several oval pads to get the same job done.
