Is the face flannel the best way to get glowing skin?
There are as many different ways to remove makeup as there are people who wear it, from the classic soap and water combo to an interesting use of lotions, potions and cotton wool balls that takes half an hour to complete.
But high street retailer Debenhams is backing the face flannel as the ideal way to get rid of the accumulation of gunk, sweat and dirt at the end of the day, seeing as sales of the cloth have been falling by an average six per cent a year.
Beauty blogger Caroline Hirons is also championing the flannel after a lifetime of personal use.
"They are far more effective in removing makeup, dirt and grime than a muslin cloth due to their weight, size and most importantly, their ability to retain heat for longer," she argued.
"Flannels are more affordable and therefore more hygienic - I recommend using a fresh one every day."
Using the warmth of a flannel means you can get your natural beauty products to penetrate further into the skin, making them much more effective, while the comparative roughness of a face cloth compared to disposable wipes gives your complexion a decent exfoliation, leaving it naturally glowing.
Debenhams spokeswoman Michelle Dowdall commented: "Everyone has forgotten how cleaning your skin with a flannel every day is one of the best ways to remove excess oils and dead, dull skin. The humble flannel should be an essential part of everyday beauty therapy. It has a strong track record proving that using it is just as much a key to looking good as using a hairbrush, lipstick or mascara."
Indeed, using your flannel to warm up herbal oils and apply them to your face could get rid of blackheads, spots and other blemishes if you follow the oil cleaning method every so often.
This involves cleansing your face with a blend of carrier oils and other oils, such as sunflower seed oil to combat dryness, and using a warm face cloth to remove the solution afterwards.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
