Okay, honesty time—how often do you wash your towels? Whatever your answer is, it’s probably not nearly enough. No surprise that improperly washed towels can carry skin-irritating bacteria (here’s a reminder to clean your phone and pillowcases too). "Gross" is an understatement, especially in this coronavirus-era we're currently living in.
Well, let us introduce you to Resorè, a brand offering luxe towels for face and body that are also antibacterial. These towels block the spread of bacteria and skin irritants that lead to acne and other skincare woes. Basically, the brand is redefining what it means to be clean. Model and beauty aficionado, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has taken notice and signed on as Resorè ambassador for the big launch today.
“I cleanse and moisturize my face morning and evening. I'm a big believer in the double cleanse in the evening. I shower in the evening, so the towels have become part of my day-to-day routine,” she explains during a virtual chat with Byrdie. “It feels like silk without using silk in the fibers, which I think is really interesting. I love that they come in this beautiful case that you keep on your vanity or makeup drawers. The antibacterial qualities of the towel break down any bacteria or odors or germs left in your towel after using.”
In fact, the key to the towel’s antibacterial and hypoallergenic power is in the fluffy fibers which are plant-derived. Unlike most towels, you’ll find a pretty interesting list of ingredients in the material breakdown. Silverbac and Tencel Lyocell are the bacteria busting, antimicrobial fibers that attack germs and odors while helping remove excess sebum and oils from the skin. It does all this without irritating your precious epidermis or drying it out while you dry off. The face towel is also handy used wet to help gently massage off any excess oils or dirt.
“It was an organic process for us. We didn't start with a grand vision for a beauty towel,” says co-founder Evah Johnson. “As we researched, we realized there was a piece missing in people's routines and that was to have a hygienic, clean towel to support healthy skin. I think people are super aware of hygiene right now and we've all had to slow down and take that extra time for self-care.”
Raise your hand if your de-stressing, self-care routine has included extra-long showers, baths, and a multi-step skincare regimen, all of which these towels pair perfect for.
The towels are available in two colorways to suit your decor needs and you can grab them now at Resore.com.
