Why use a Muslin Cloth?
Regardless of your skin type, proper deep cleansing not only prompts dry skin to become hydrated but, but removes excess oil from oily skin, and promotes proper blood circulation. The daily build up of environmental pollution, grime and grease, as well as makeup accumulates over the skin’s surface and can ultimately lead to clogged pores, acne, black heads, excessive dead skin cells and dull skin complexion.
The skin on the face is very delicate so being too vigorous or using the wrong exfoliating products can damage the skin barrier; the layer of oils and proteins that maintain its moisture and protects it from impurities. Stripped of this barrier, your face is at risk of breakouts and premature ageing.
Muslin cloths, particularly made from organic cotton fabric of plain weave and from a wide range of weights, are perfect for cleansing the face. They not only remove makeup but gently exfoliate skin whist cleansing and dry much quicker hence are more hygienic. A muslin cloth can be a great alternative to facial scrubs for people with sensitive skin, and for those with normal skin, facial exfoliating can be reduced to once or twice a week only.
