Almost everyone uses their towel to dry their face after washing it. Using a towel to dry your face after a shower, on the other hand, might be detrimental to the skin surrounding your face. Because, with time, your towel becomes a breeding ground for unwelcome bacteria, detritus, dead skin cells, oils, and even fungus. The worst-case scenario comes when you dry your entire body with the same towel.
We'll go over three primary reasons why you shouldn't use a towel to dry your face after washing it in this article (bath).
Have you ever considered that your towel could be the source of acne outbreaks on your face? As we mentioned in the first paragraph, your towel becomes a breeding ground for unwelcome bacteria, detritus, dead skin cells, oils, and even fungus as time passes. If you use a towel to dry your face, they can get directly on your skin. This clogs your pores, triggering acne breakouts.
It reduces the effectiveness of your skincare products by preventing them from penetrating.
One issue with drying your face with a towel after bathing (washing) is the efficacy of skincare products. Using a towel on your face can hinder skincare products from being adequately absorbed by your skin. However, skipping this step benefits both the skin and the product because putting skin cream to a moist face helps lock in hydration.
Can make your skin greasy.
Drying your face with a scratchy cloth can upset your skin's oil balance. To compensate for the dryness, your skin will overproduce oil.
So, how do I dry my face?
You may believe that using a separate towel for your face just will fix these issues, but this is not the case. With time, the towel will collect dirt, debris, and unwelcome microbes. Experts advise using a more hygienic method of drying, such as allowing air to do the job (air drying).
