Microfibre cloths: Your essential skincare accessory
Microfibre cloths are the modern-day makeup removal solution.
In a time where beauty regimes are becoming more technical and complex, simply wetting a cloth and removing makeup seems too good to be true.
But it’s not. And that’s because microfibre cloths actually work!
What are microfibre cloths?
Microfibre cloths are small, reusable pads that look and feel like a very small towel. Apply water to the cloth and gently wipe across the face to remove makeup without the use of harsh soaps and chemicals.
How do microfibre cloths work?
While the water loosens makeup and surface dirt, hundreds of tiny fibres grab the particles and hold them away from the skin. As you move the cloth over the face, the fibres stop the makeup from being smeared back onto the skin. The technology is so effective, it can even be used on eye makeup!
If you’ve had your eye on microfibre cloths for a while but you’re still undecided, here are four reasons reusable microfibre cloths should feature in your skincare essentials toolkit!
- Reduces the toxic load on your skin
While makeup remover is designed to remove dirt and residue from the skin, the chemicals used to formulate these products can be anything but skin friendly. Heavy oils can penetrate the skin and block pores leading to breakouts, sensitivity and irritation.
Microfibre cloths are synthetic free. Results come from water alone which helps reduce the build-up of toxins within the skin’s barrier.
Microfibre cloths can be used to remove makeup and grime up to 200 times. Simply place in the wash bag after use and clean according to manufacturer’s guidelines. The reusable option is a much more sustainable alternative to single use cloths and cotton wool.
- Saves time
It takes five seconds to remove makeup with a microfibre cloth. OK, ten max! There’s no need for prolonged scrubbing. Simply wipe over face et voila, you’re done! Life is busy for most of us and the last thing anyone wants to do is spend time at the sink vigorously washing off makeup!
- Budget friendly
While microfibre cloths might cost more than disposable wipes initially, with over 200 washes per cloth, over time removing makeup will cost you an average of less than 0.04 cents per wash!
Here at Biologi, to thoroughly clean the pores and remove all particles from the cells, we recommend the double cleanse.
The skin is exposed to millions of toxins each day. Microfibre cloths are an excellent way to remove surface makeup, but pairing with a hardworking, fully active cleanser will remove more impurities from the epidermis allowing the active ingredients in serums to penetrate deeper for greater efficacy.
