For centuries, geisha have stitched together leftover pieces of textured kimono silk to make small pouches called momiji-bukuro, an essential part of their daily face cleansing ritual. This simple but effective technique inspired our KINU Pure Silk Polishing Face Cloth, which brings these special exfoliating benefits to modern women everywhere. Here are some additional skin silkening ways to use this special fabric to transform your own beauty ritual:

• Place a tablespoon of your favorite Polished Rice Enzyme Powder in the center of the cloth. Lift the corners and tie it closed around the powder with a ribbon. Take the pouch with you in the shower to use for a deeper exfoliation around the nose, chin and forehead.

• Or add a bit more enzyme powder in the center, make a sachet and place it into the bathtub for a luxurious soak that will soften and smooth your skin.

• Soak the cloth in very warm water, squeeze out the excess and lightly apply to the face for a few seconds to set powder and makeup. Alternatively, add a few drops of floral essence to the water, squeeze the excess and inhale deeply.

•  Wrap the cloth around the index finger and swipe gently around the border and then the center of the lips to smooth the surface (especially good when planning to wear bright lipstick).

• Use the cloth to gently pat the face dry after cleansing. Our cloth is made of some of the most densely woven silk available, which means it absorbs moisture quickly and perfectly preps the skin for any treatments that follow.

Always,
