The skin on your face is delicate. When you wipe excess water away, you’re tugging at the skin. The likelihood for wrinkles and wear and tear increases and you’re removing all the moisture your skin needs prior to product application. You should be just patting your face dry with a clean towel.
Now using a clean towel is THE KEY. Using the same towel as you use on your body can spread bacteria and lead to more break outs. Trying using a new towel daily. We know it sounds like a lot but it will prevent anything that’s been floating around in the bathroom air or the dead skin you sloughed off the day before from getting on your newly cleaned face. A hand towel works great or even a paper towel. Yes, you read that correctly… a paper towel.
You can take the drying process one step further and air dry. Giving your skin a few seconds of dry time before applying serums or creams means you don’t risk pulling or putting anything unnecessary on your face. When your skin is slightly damp, then apply your skin care favorites.
