That's what I always thought; that the washcloth would act as a an exfoliater. Look at my kids preteens and they only use washcloth soap and spot medication for breakouts. Beautiful skin!

Sometimes others may be too harsh with anything they use on their face.
I like the little soft scubbers you can buy to exfolate when needed or the dove thing i don't remember the name of it but it's so cool and gental on your face and you can change the pads each time makes your face feel so fresh afterwards. I think anything works aslong as you dont scrub too hard. emoticon

I think part of it is that some people tend to use a washcloth too many times and then bacteria can grow on it that can get back on your face. I think if you use it once or twice, though, you are safe. That's what I use as well and it seems to work fine. I am about to be 40 and no one will believe me!!

I love scrubs, the scrubbier the better, but I don't get why a washcloth would be a bad idea. Obviously you shouldn't scrub the cr*p out of your face with either option...

It doesnt feel like my face is clean unless I use a washcloth! That's odd. I am going to stick with what works when it comes to my face.

I have always found that weird too. I honestly think that cosmetic companies came up with that recommendation so that people would buy exfoliants instead of going with an inexpensive option like a washcloth. For some people using a washcloth would be too irritating, but those people probably shouldn't use facial scrubs either. And a washcloth could be a problem if you don't use a clean one each time- mold, mildew, germs, etc would develop between uses. I recently started using a washcloth on my face in the mornings to get rid of the flakes that come from using benzoyl peroxide at night, and my skin looks much better.

I think it could be because people tend to pull the skin with a washcloth, which isn't good.

I have never heard before that a washcloth is a harsh facial tool, but one would think that a washcloth would/could serve as a gentle and safe means by which to exfoliate.

My first mini-goal is to get down to 119.5 lbs (and break that 20's barrier). I am on my way!

After reading a post in another thread it reminded me of a question I've been meaning to ask.

I've read and had salon people tell me a washcloth ist o harsh for cleaning your face. Except facial scrubs can be used? Apricot facial scrub is one well know scrub for your face that everyone raves about. I have ahava facial scub which is very fine grained that I use on face and neck.

So why is using a washcloth harsh when using a facial scrub that has chemicals and fragrance ok to use?
