five different ways to use the clean towels
& how it can improve your skin health
Skin health is on the rise. Along with the right products with the right routine. Everyone is different though, right? We have different skin conditions, different skin tones, different skin sensitivities, the list goes on. The one thing our differences can all agree upon are Clean Towels. We all know that Clean Towels are the world’s first single-use, biodegradable, ultra-soft facial towel… But what are ways to use Clean Towels along with the magical benefits? Let me tell you 5 easy ways.
Most used: Clean Towels to dry your face after AM and PM washing.
Bathrooms alone are a breeding ground for bacteria, mold, mildew and even viruses. The humid, dark and moist environment is home for these microscopic nuisances. What is also humid and moist… bathroom towels. No matter how we hang it, fold it, dry it, there is no escaping the breeding ground. The safest way to keep your skin as clean as possible are CSC Clean Towels. You never have to worry if you used enough bleach, or if your laundry detergent is going to trigger a skin sensitivity.
Followed by: Drying my SINK!
There is nothing I am more obsessed with than my routine of drying my face, drying my sink, then tossing my Clean Towel in the recycling. I rather take out the trash with a biodegradable towel than do more laundry and waste water. Saves me time and I like to tread lightly on Earth’s resources.
This is a new one: Using Clean Towels at the gym.
After a million years of using my hands, my shirt, or even a bathroom towel, I came to realization that I can use my Clean Towels to dry my sweat. GAME. CHANGER. Exercise is good for your skin. By increasing blood flow, exercise helps nourish skin cells and keep them vital. On the contrary, sweat and oil can buildup in your pores and lead to breakouts. To allow exercise to be as beneficial for my skin health as possible, I found that using my Clean Towels in the gym has decreased my breakouts and decreased the additional chances to keep bacteria off my face. Boom.
Masking & Makeup: Using Clean Towels to remove weekly masks and makeup
This has been a blessing for my skin. There was nothing worse than removing a face mask with a towel that HURT my face! I am always one to keep my skin barrier in check, and some bath towels I have used in the past seemed to be an exfoliator itself. Overuse of exfoliation = skin barrier damage. Chronic skin irritation = skin barrier damage. My products do plenty, all I need is a Clean Towel to gently dry my skin!
This might be just me: I use my Clean Towels to apply retinol and Retin-A to my face.
Call me crazy but I am tired of my fingertips getting damaged from intense products. My routine goes: dry face, use corner for toner, use other corner to apply retinol (on retinol nights only). There’s no need to use extra towels or pads when you have an XL Clean Towel. I can do everything I need to within the same Towel usage. Again, saves me time in my routine, saves me money in the long run, and I know my Towel is doing no harm to my skin.
Taking care of your skin is not as complicated as it may seem. One little towel can go a long way and make a huge difference, sometimes we might just not know how or why! Creativity is intelligence having fun.
