How Does Kate Middleton Clean Her Face?

The Key to Kate Middleton's Glowing Skin Is Simpler Than You May Think

Kate Middleton is undeniably one of our ultimate beauty icons. She always looks fresh and polished with nude lipstick, has perfectly bouncy hair, and is the queen of tasteful hair accessories. Oh, and did we mention she has borderline flawless, smooth skin? Yep, she's mastered that, too.

So what's the secret to her incredible complexion? The Duchess of Cambridge's makeup artist Arabella Preston just spilled the beans, and it's actually pretty uncomplicated. "It's all about the flannel," Preston told The Cut in a recent interview. For non-Brits who aren't familiar with the term, she's not talking about a plaid button-down shirt; flannel is a British term for a terry-towel facial washcloth. These types of cloth are ideal for gently exfoliating and removing makeup and dirt, as they offer a less-harsh alternative to motorised cleansing brushes, Preston explained.

Here I've been cleansing with my hands, while the key to having Kate Middleton-like skin was right under my nose all along! Ready to have duchess-worthy skin? The soft flannel below seems like the right place to start.
