A towel has always been one of the most necessary parts of my gym bag. As a fitness teacher and someone who values moving, doing challenging and rewarding things for your body, I sweat for a living. Sweating is your body’s way of cooling you down. For some people, sweating doesn’t come as easy to them whereas a lot of other people sweat almost immediately whether it be walking outside on a hot day or within the first minutes of warmup during a workout. I am one of those people. I am a Pure Barre enthusiast who sweats immediately when I hit the floor after those knee ups. I love to kick-box for added cardio where I leave puddles on the floor. I work in a hot yoga studio where sweat pours out all class. I am not writing to complain about sweat problems. Leaving a sweaty mess behind means I am working hard and doing my part to stay active. At the end of the day, we are blessed to be able to move our bodies. I am writing to bring awareness to what has helped me tremendously.
With all this sweat came a lot of acne problems for my already-problematic skin. Sweat, or perspiration, is made almost completely of water, with tiny amounts of other chemicals like ammonia, urea, salts, and sugar. Ammonia and urea are what’s left over when your body breaks down protein. This should never be left on your face for long periods of time. As we sweat, it is so important to keep taking care of our face and treat our skin with love.
When FaceSoft Towels came into play, these sweaty moments became so much easier to manage, so much less intimidating, problematic, and, well, embarrassing being one of the only ones in a class dripping! I become confident in my skin and in my sweat. I was confident knowing that when I wiped my face, it would be soft and extremely absorbent due to the 100% Aqua-Cotton technology. When I wipe my face using an Eco Color FaceSoft towel, there is almost no sweat left behind on my face.
When I use the Charcoal-Detox towel on my face, it introduces a new benefit. Not only does it feel super soft, but along with absorbing sweat of your face, it absorbs toxins and impurities as you are sweating! I use the Charcoal-Detox towels for working out AND for washing my face morning and night. This has helped my skin problems and I now have clearer skin than before. These towels treat our skin so gently, the way we should always aim to treat it.
Using FaceSoft Towels are not only amazing on your skin, but at the same time you are helping our oceans. That soft feeling is due to the fact that these towels contain absolutely NO Microfiber. Many people are unaware the microfiber is a material made up of tiny plastic pieces. Today, our oceans are endangered, facing climate changes and plastic pollution. Plastic pollution ends up in the food we eat through fish and we are consuming plastic unknowingly. Switching the towels you use at the gym and at home to FaceSoft help to eliminate plastic pollution. No microfiber means no tiny plastic pieces filtering through to our water systems when washed. You are not only helping your skin, but you our helping out precious Mother Earth.
Keep moving, FaceSoft fam!
