Using a washcloth everyday is an easy, gentle way to exfoliate the skin.
Exfoliation is the key to glowing trouble free skin. That layer of dead skin on the surface can make our skin appear ashy and also feeds bacteria that can cause acne.
Start with the Face.
Use small circular movements. If you don't have makeup or dirt to remove try using just the washcloth and water but no cleanser or soap. Sometimes we over use cleanser and end up stripping our natural oils. The washcloth/water combo removes the dead cells without stripping the oils.
Next Arms, Legs and Torso.
Same concept applies here. These aren't always "stinky" body parts so maybe they don't always need soap-just exfoliation to feel clean.
Pits and Privates.
Since we have different types of sweat glands here it is best to add a little soap into the mix. If you shave or wax these areas the washcloth helps eliminate dead skin and lift hairs so you are less prone to ingrowns and bumps.
Basic Rules for Washcloth Use
1)Always wring out and hang up after use so bacteria/mold don't breed.
2)After the washcloth is dry toss it in the laundry basket.
3)Wash in hot water and dry on high to kill all those germs.
4)Use washcloth one time only before tossing in the wash.
