One very special aspect of the mother-daughter relationship is the rituals that develop around beauty and self-care — didn’t you love watching your mama get ready for a fancy night out while stealing swipes of lipstick? It would seem that the Kardashians are just like us, because when Kim Kardashian West recently took to her website to talk all about her beauty routine she mentioned a special beauty tip she learned from her mom, Kris Jenner.

Turns out that this little trick is just as helpful and effective now as ever: Kris advised Kim to wash her face with a hot washcloth to help exfoliate the skin. We all know how important exfoliation is to our skin’s health, and using a hot washcloth is a great way to gently and safely exfoliate daily without having to rely on harsh chemicals or physical exfoliants that might strip your skin of its natural oils.

Seeing as hot water and steam helps to open up your pores, it’s a great way to cleanse your skin and get rid of impurities as well. Kris Jenner’s advice is a widely held belief in beauty circles, and it’s especially popular with individuals who like to oil cleanse.

Are you surprised to hear that the most prized beauty tip that Kris Jenner gave to Kim Kardashian is so low-key?

From the looks of Kim’s skin, it’s certainly working for her. Sometimes, moms really do have all the answers. We love hearing little details like this from celebs and normals alike because it’s just another way in which beauty can be so unifying.

What great tips did your mom give you? We bet they’re good!
