The researchers compared samples of the environment in the bathroom and on the towels, and found that the last – an excellent breeding ground for bacteria. After all, the difficulties are compounded by the moist environment in which there are towels, and the moisture allows bacteria to multiply with a vengeance.
Output? How often to change towels, better – every day. In addition, to dry towels and keep the towels for the face and body separately.

Output? Cleansing should be done morning and evening. Some mistakenly think that the skin is clean and limited only by the rinsing of the face. First, think about bed linen, which at first absorbs fats and oils, and then during the night gives it all back into the skin. Secondly, remember that at night your skin secretes sweat and dead cells. And if it's not clear, the subsequent product in the form of a moisturizer or a BB cream cover them, and during the day the pores are clogged with dirt.
