We all reach for our dear towels every single day without giving it much thought. Nonetheless, a personal item like a towel requires extensive research about what it is made of, how it is made and the different types available in the market. If you have acne, you've most likely invested your time and money in trying different moisturizers, cleansers, facials and whatnot. You probably have gone for facials and have even consulted a dermatologist. You are most likely super-cautious about your skincare schedule and you would never even think about retiring for the night without washing your face. This is fine but it will work only if your towels are clean. Clean towels lead to clear skin.
Here are a few pointers on choosing a towel that holds the key to maintaining a clear skin.
1. ALWAYS GO FOR ANTIBACTERIAL TOWELS
The towels we use regularly act as a host for numerous bacteria that are bad for the skin. This is because towels are kept under moist conditions and hold dampness for a significant amount of time which allows the bacteria to thrive. As you rub the towel on your skin, bacteria get transferred onto your face and settle down in your pores, causing pimples, acne and other skin infections. Using a towel that is antibacterial limits the growth of bacteria for up to as many as 100 washes and helps restrict the cause of all your skincare woes. Using a towel that fights against bacteria contributes immensely to your skincare regimen.
2. CHOOSE TOWELS WITH THE RIGHT FABRIC
There’s nothing more satisfying than wrapping yourself in a soft and fluffy towel after your bath. Picking towels that feel soft and fluffy is a good start but it is of no use if it doesn’t absorb water quickly. Higher the absorbency, better the towel. Absorbency depends on the fabric of the towel. Most towels are made from cotton and yet there are numerous kinds of cotton blends to choose from. Eco-fibres like banana yarn and bamboo yarn are known for their absorption as well as antimicrobial and antibacterial properties which make them perfect for babies and people with sensitive skin while Egyptian cotton and Turkish cotton are known for their softness. Be kind to the earth and choose a good towel made of natural fibre having antimicrobial and antibacterial properties. Choose wisely if you don't want bacteria creeping its way onto your towels.
3. USE DIFFERENT TOWELS FOR FACE AND BODY
It is very important to use a separate towel for your face and body after a shower, as it will ensure minimal transfer of bacteria from private parts, underarms and the rest of the body to the face. Otherwise these bacteria can easily clog pores, increase breakouts and in some cases even cause skin irritations and rashes. It is therefore highly recommended by dermatologists to use different towels for the face and the body.
4. SOFT AND FLUFFY TOWELS ARE BEST FOR DELICATE SKIN
A towel can enhance or diminish a relaxing bathing experience. The wrong towel can make your skin feel itchy and dry while the right towel can make your skin feel rejuvenated and soft. Being able to wrap yourself in a long, fluffy bath towel which absorbs moisture effortlessly, alleviates your experience into a whole new level of luxury.
5. FREQUENT LAUNDERING AND SAFE SANITIZING GOES A LONG WAY
No matter how much you focus on buying the right towel, it will not do your skin any good unless proper towel hygiene is being followed. For starters, any towel that touches your face, should be freshly laundered. Do not be deceived by the fact that it looks spotless. Bacteria can be present, regardless of the fact that it is not visible.
Frequent laundering is important for towels to remain clean and to remove any germs that are starting to accumulate. You and your skin will be healthier the more often you wash your towels. To make sure your towel stays super clean, you should wash or replace your towel every now and then.
Note: For the best results, choose towels that are best suitable for your skin type.
