The humble muslin

Muslin to me was a dress fabric and for medical dressing but, is now also a staple in my face cleansing routine.
I was first introduced to this cotton fabric as a cleansing tool when I received it with my Decléor’s Hydra-Radiance Smoothing & Cleansing Mousse. Liz Earle’s cleanse and polish has also reinforced my use of it and I constantly stock up now from Liz Earle. I am told it’s also available at retailers like Mothercare and Pai also provide muslin cloths to be used with their cleanser.

Muslin cloths
– enable a more effective cleansing routine even with “okay” cleansers,
– reduce the need for more gritty and intense exfoliants since it provides gentle exfoliation,
– are easy to clean. I boil mine in hot water every week and they dry easily too
– and are not terribly expensive.

I prefer to use the cloth with a creamy cleanser or a cleansing milk and do so three to four times a week.

Give it a try if you haven’t already. You may never wish for a clarisonic again 😉
