Quick Tip Of The Day: Do Not Combine Acne-Fighting Face Wash With Colored Towels
Something mysterious has been going on in my bathroom. My blue towels have big bleached splotches. For a while I couldn’t figure out why. Was there bleach tainting the bathroom door from which my towel rack hung? I even entertained the notion that my dog walker had killed someone in my apartment and then used bleach to clean my bathroom of all evidence and used my towels to towel things dry. (I have a wild imagination, I know. She’s really a sweet older lady.) But then I had a new theory and confirmed its accuracy with Erin. My newish acne-fighting face wash, which contains Benzoyl Peroxide, wasn’t rinsing off entirely and, when I went to towel-dry my face, the chemical zit-fighting goodness still left on my skin was bleaching my towels! So, my tip? When using face wash with Benzoyl Peroxide, dry your face with white towels. The end.
