This is what Kate Middleton uses to get flawless skin, and here are 5 items to shop if you don’t own it already

While it may be tempting to assume that the royal family’s grooming patterns include peasants scrubbing them with freshly plated gold masks, the reality is a lot more accessible. Refreshingly, Kate Middleton’s face washing secret is something we can all afford to take into consideration.

In an interview with The Cut, Kate Middleton’s makeup artist, Arabella Preston, shared her go-to product for good skin, and it’s quite simple,

"It’s all about the flannel.

In the interview, Preston went on to clarify that she meant a terry or face washcloth, not a flannel button-down shirt that you weep into while revisiting Nirvana. Although, to each their own. She also added that using a washcloth is actually quite necessary if you want to wash your face cleanly. Preston told The Cut that using it helps wipe away any dirt, gunk, or makeup from your skin without causing irritation to your face. Plus, Kate’s makeup artist even suggested that it’s more gentle than your beloved cleanser brush.

We’re mostly relieved to know that Kate Middleton’s secret to fresh skin doesn’t require us to spend quality time with the Queen.

Since that’s inaccessible to 95% of us.
