While it's tempting to reuse an old facial towel, this can actually damage your skin. Facial towels are designed for delicate use and should be replaced every few weeks. If you're not sure how often that is, try replacing them after two uses or when they start to look worn out. While new face towels might seem expensive at first glance, they're actually cheaper than buying cheap ones every few weeks!
Wash with a facial towel to remove dead skin
If you have the dead skin on your face (meaning it's not attached to your body), then you need to remove it. This is easily done with facial towels, which come in handy for removing makeup and exfoliating dry patches. To use a facial towel as an exfoliator, first wet the cloth and then wipe it across your face in gentle circular motions until all of the dead skin has been removed.
Be sure to use a clean facial towel every time—a clean cloth will be gentler than one that has been used multiple times before! Finally, don't use old towels or washcloths meant for other purposes on your face; these items have different textures than what's needed for skin care and might scratch at sensitive areas like around the eyes or nose area.
Wipe your face with a face towel to remove the makeup
To remove your makeup, use a gentle face towel that is free of hair and lint. Make sure to use new towels for each day to avoid transferring bacteria from one day to the next. Avoid using old washcloths or other fabric items that have been used before by someone else as these can harbor bacteria and cause irritation on your skin.
Use the facial towel to apply sunscreen
It's important to apply sunscreen before you go out in the sun. Apply sunscreen to your face and neck, hands, arms, and legs. You should also apply sunscreen to your feet, back and chest.
If you're going swimming or sweating a lot (like when exercising), reapply it every two hours as well as after towel drying or sweating a lot.
Use a facial towel after eating oily food or drinking alcohol
It's important to remove oil and grease from your face after eating oily food or drinking alcohol. One of the best ways to do this is by using a facial towel. It’s also helpful for removing makeup, and dead skin cells, and applying sunscreen. In fact, there are many reasons why you should use a facial towel in your skincare routine!
Removing sebum from the surface of your skin helps prevent breakouts. Sebum is an oily substance produced by our bodies that moisturizes our skin and hair. However, it can get trapped in pores if we don't remove it regularly (and sometimes even when we do).
Washing with soap may cause irritation if used too often; cleansing cloths won't irritate your face like soap does.
Never use an old, worn washcloth to clean your skin
It's important to use a new towel for each facial. Make sure that the towel is clean and free of any bacteria or dirt before you start using it. Don't use the same towel for your face and body, because bacteria can spread between these two areas if they share the same towel.
It’s also not a good idea to use a washcloth that has been used by someone else, because their skin could be carrying harmful germs that could potentially get onto yours while you’re washing up.
