Sometimes you can’t beat simple, inexpensive beauty tricks to keep skin healthy and unblemished. Just ask Kate Middleton. The Duchess of Cambridge uses a washcloth to remove dirt and oil from her face. It’s a cheap way to smooth skin and keep it zit-free — and you’ve probably already got one at home.
Arabella Preston is the makeup artist credited with helping Kate with her wedding makeup. “It’s all about the flannel,” she told The Cut. “More gentle than any motorised cleanser brush, the right flannel will allow you to cleanly wipe makeup and dirt from your skin and gently exfoliate,” Preston said.
As for Kate’s glowing skin, Preston said the Duchess loves rosehip oil as it’s not a danger to either Prince George or Princess Charlotte. “Kate continues to use rosehip oil in her daily skincare regiment. She loves the effect is has on her skin. Carole Middleton is also a fan,” she said. Rosehip oil is also known to improve skin tone, texture and pigmentation, all while reducing scars and fine lines. Used twice daily, most skin conditions will improve in three weeks.
So with the price of a washcloth and rosehip oil setting you back a meagre £20, it appears it’s never been easy, or cheaper, to try out the Duchess of Cambridge’s simple skincare routine at home.
