Are Cotton Pads Good for Skin?

1. Is it better to apply toner with hands or cotton?

Toners are typically used after cleansing your skin to reset your pH balance plus, to hydrate and fortify your skin’s barrier. It doesn’t matter if you are using a powerful cleanser, it is not enough for removing dirt, makeup, excess oil, etc. This is why we need toner as it removes all these gently, besides improving the quality of our skin. Toner helps to open our pores and when moisturizer is applied our skin can therefore absorb it properly and get moisturized correctly. So, toner plays an important role here. Toner also gives our skin a refreshing feeling that makes us feel good in our own skin. One study suggests that just adding an over-the-counter skin toner to your skin regimen is beneficial in the treatment of acne.  But most people don’t know the importance of applying toner properly. But the reality is that it is as important as deciding on the right toner. Because depending on how you apply your toner to your skin, the benefits vary from one skin type to the other. Now, you must have questions like- can you apply toner with fingers instead of cotton pads? If your skin is normal or dry then you can use your hands to apply toner but if you have combination or oily skin then the cotton pad is the right choice for you.


2. Do cotton pads exfoliate?

Similar to a gentle exfoliator, cotton pads for cleansing face are great at getting rid of dead skin cells and stopping excess oil and sebum from accumulating but can be used every day without the hassle of massaging in and washing away another product into the skin. Contrary to the belief that it pulls the skin to cause wrinkles, simply wetting the cotton pad with enough product gets rid of this worry. A cotton pad not only helps exfoliate and remove surface dead skin cells but can help the product penetrate better.

3. Can cotton pads cause irritation?

Normally, cotton pads for face cleaning will not cause skin irritation and damage because cotton is a pure natural fiber. However, there are some cotton pads on the market that claim to be cotton that is not actually pure cotton. They may be added with chemical fibers, and chemical additives such as fluorescent agents, bleaching agents, etc. may be added. The wrong cotton pad can irritate sensitive skin and become a counterproductive part of your skin-care routine. Pads with a rough texture or those made from a material that has been bleached or treated with other chemicals can be too harsh on the skin and trigger allergic reactions. Cotton pads with loose fibers can also harm the skin. They are commonly available at a very cheap price. However, they can and do produce a lot of lint which sticks to your skin (especially when soaked in toner) and eventually blocks your pores!


4. How do I choose a cotton pad?

Many people search to invest in good products or expensive devices, such as face brushes or massaging tools, but most consumers still give little to no thought to one of our most used instruments in daily skincare, the cotton pads. Cotton pads can in fact be considered very trivial and even lacking importance on the skin´s final outlook, but the reality is that the choice, usage and quality of pads will play a very distinct role on your complexion. A wrong cotton pad can irritate your skin, but the right quality and type of cotton pads will exponentially improve your skin care progress, helping you get better results and even helping you reduce the quantity of product you tend to use. Factors such as skin type should also be considered when choosing the right cotton pads and their usage should accordingly reflect the skin type of the user as well. As an example, oily or combination skin types can really benefit from the use of pads, whereas sensitive skin types should be a bit more careful and use them accordingly to their skin needs.
