I stopped using washclothes years ago.

I use a softer flannel type for my face but love handknits for my body.

I've been using a fresh washcloth for a while. Over time, I began using make-up primers and a longer lasting foundation. I realized that using soap alone wasn't removing everything.

Not unless I've worn make-up that day, which isn't often. Usually I just rinse my face with warm water in the shower.

Stupid question: How can one get a clean face with just water thrown into it? You are exposed to all that stuff that flies around there, dirt, smog, pollen, whatever, it gets into your pores and you can just remove it with water flowing over it?

My skin looks great rinsed with warm water everyday. I might use a little mild soap if I've been outside getting dirty, but I'm not a big face scrubber. Too harsh.

Sandalwood soap + water helped keep my face fresh in Southern India. Up here in CNJ, the air is very clean and we rarely have air pollution issues. Although, I do wash my face 2 times a day. Once while showering, and once before dinner.

I use a washcloth when I wash my face if I'm not in the shower so I don't get the front of my hair, shirt and bathroom counter wet. The whole splashing water thing is too messy at the sink. In the shower, I just put the soap in my hands to wash my face since my hair is already wet. Plus, I live in a climate with long, hot summers and have fairly oily skin, so I don't have to worry about irritating my face when using regular soap with a washcloth.

I use a clean white washcloth to gently take off my cleanser at night, and use a damp washcloth in the morning to wipe off any eye mattering from the night before.

Yes, I use a washcloth when I've been working outside and I'm sweaty and dirty. I don't usually use one in the winter on my face, just my fingers to increase circulation.

Hope that makes someone's day! In 55 years, no one has ever asked me that question before.
