Towels are vulnerable as they are packed with bacteria. Wiping your face with a towel can ruin your skin. There are several reasons why you not should use a towel to dry a face.
It may give you acne
Drying your face with the same tower for a long period of time can damage your skin. This is because, towels trap bacteria. When you store a towel in the bathroom, you create the perfect environment for bacteria to grow. Rubbing your face using a towel keeps all the bacteria onto your skin. This may lead to breakouts and clogged pores.
You skin may age more quickly
Some cloth bath towels are too rough on your face. They may create tiny tears on your skin, making your skin vulnerable to infections and wrinkles. The friction created by washing the towels acts as an exfoliant that can harm your skin.
It decreases the efficacy of skincare products
Using a moisturizer can penetrate your skin. When you stop drying your skin, you allow your skincare products to lock in the moisture. However, your skin needs to look youthful and glowing.
It can irritate your skin
Drying your face using towels is not appropriate for a sensitive skin. The towel fabrics can harsh your skin. So, wiping your face can cause skin redness and irritation.
It can make your skin oily
Drying your skin can make it greasy. Rough towels remove natural oils on your skin. This makes sebaceous glands to produce more oil, in order to balance out the dryness. This will make your skin over greasy.
How to dry your face without a towel
Instead of using a towel to dry your face, you can use the air. Air drying is hygienic and very gentle on your skin. This will need more time, but it will keep your skin healthy.
