Wet Warm Towels for wiping off facial creams/masks

Many of the facial products I use, such as exfoliator and clay masks, call for a "warm, wet towel" to wipe off the product after you are finished. This all makes sense, except logistically it is difficult.

I mean lets say I use something that requires a warm wet towel five times a week. That means I have to either re-use these towels or use five different towels. If I reuse them, its gross because the cream will still be on it after I wipe it off, and I don't want to reuse that kind of thing. Its dirty. And if I change towels each time I will have too much laundry that weekend.

How do you guys pull this off? Cotton swabs are too small and it takes 10 of them to get a mask off. Any tips?

Can't you just rinse out the towel well when you're done and hang it to dry? As long as none of the gunk is still on the towel, it shouldn't be too dirty....

I use Noxzema daily to wash my face and masks once in a while.

My trick is, put them on before taking a shower and then rinse my face in the shower - works great.

Failing that, a washcloth should do the trick, though you'll have to rinse it out once or twice during the process. Seven washcloths won't add much to a week's laundry.

You should not be putting on a mask more than 1-2 times a week, nor should you be exfoliating more than 2-3. This can be excessive/very harmful for your skin.

I exfoliate every other day and put the mask on once. That's only 3.5 times a week. But yeah you don't want to overdo it.
