I am not following your logic. Can you explain it in more details? Why would letting it airdry take away moisture from your face and toweldrying doesn't?

i thought i was the only one who uses kleenex to dry the face Laughing

i just blot the kleenex on my face for a few seconds to absorb the water and then lift off, my face is then damp enough for me to use a moisturizer.

I prefer my face dries naturally... a little stroke using towel, but not too much....

I seem to get tissue bits stuck on my face when I use the kleenex method. Embarassed

I gently pat dry my face with a towel and apply my creams right away. Although sometimes it seems like my face is way to dry already before i can start putting creams on.

Pat dry with a clean washcloth. Then apply moisturiser right away on damp skin.

I use a small towel (dedicated for face) to pat dry too.

Although, when I dry my face, I actually wet the towel with ice-cold water, squeeze it, and then leave it on my face for a few seconds... I repeat this a few times after washing my face. It helps "calm" my face and also close up the pores!!

I just pat with a towel, never even thought of using another method. And using a dedicated towel just for the face? Now, I'm going to have to go out to buy a softer face towel and my husband will think I've gotten even more skincare crazy!

not sure if my method is correct, i usually used tissue to pad lightly on my face to dry the excess water.

with a towel is better. Air dry tends to get your skin drier....

I use paper towels so as to avoid any bacteria that may build up on a regular towel/washcloth. The brand escapes me right now, but there is a paper towel that is perforated at about 1/4-1/2 the normal size, which is enough to dry my face w/o feeling like I'm wasting paper.
