Hot cloth cleansing has so many benefits if done right and will leave your skin feeling super clean and smooth - but only if you use the right tools and techniques.

With a slightly damp face, apply your chosen cleanser and gently rub into your face and neck ensuring all areas are covered with the product 2. Leave for a minute or two so it soaks up all the dirt on your skin’s surface 3. Using a cloth (muslin ones are highly recommended) dampened with warm to hot water, run it over your face and neck to remove the cleanser. Rinse in between wipes if you need to. If you have time, you can leave the cloth resting on your face for a few minutes for an even more thorough clean 4. Once finished with the cloth, rinse your face with warm water so all the excess product is washed way to leave a smooth and silky complexion 5. Before your skin dries out, apply moisturiser and allow it to sink in and nourish the face and neck Muslin cloths are easy to get a hold of and are great for those with sensitive skin, but if you’re looking for a slightly rougher scrub try a terry cloth; a fabric with a plush texture which allows gentle buffering. You must ensure all make-up is removed beforehand as although hot cloth cleansing is designed to remove dirt, it’s only the excess you want to catch with the material. © Cover Media
