Washing your face?  I let the shower stream hit my face in the morning.  Good enough.

You're supposed to wash your towels?

Pumpernickel bread: You're supposed to wash your towels?


Obviously what they mean is after you shower, you're clean, and then when you wipe yourself with the towel, your cleanliness goes on to the towel, washing it.

Along with the thousands of pounds of dead skin and bacteria rubbed off your body and are in the dust floating around in the air that touches your towel for a tenth of a second, thus infecting it irreparably.

Pumpernickel bread: You're supposed to wash your towels?


That's hogwash, the whole point of a shower is becoming clean, what the hell is getting the towels dirty?  Besides I prefer a well broken-in towel, they just sort of flex enough that I could floss between my cheeks for hours.

I usually just scrub until the zits come out

Wash it back to front just like your butt.

I don't use a towel on my face at all.  I just sprint around the house full-speed until evaporation takes its course.  Then I get dressed.

I always try to remove my makeup before I shave.
 
2013-10-25 01:41:20 PM  
I dry off by rubbing up and down against your mom.

Actual conversation -

Dermatologist: What do you wash your face with?
Me: Water
Dermatologist: Well, what else?
Me: Just water.
Dermatologist: What do you mean, just water?
Me: Well, I stand in the shower and the water hits my face.
Dermatologist: You should really buy some cetaphil or something.

/I have dry skin/eczema, hence the dermatologist visit
//Yes, I bought some cetaphil, but it's not something I use everyday.

Has anybody else noticed that crappy journalism has become very trendy.  The trend for the last year is "You're doing ABC wrong! Click my link to tell you how" and usually the article is against some strawman ignoramus who couldn't tie his shoelaces if it wasn't for some crack (pipe) reporter who told him how.

Pumpernickel bread: You're supposed to wash your towels?


Not necessarily.

For a long time, your mom will do it. Then your fiance/wife will do it. If there's a long enough gap between having those (6 months or so) then, yes, you might have to wash them.

You're missing the typical "Disagree with our crack (pipe) reporter? Whine about it in comments below!" ending, to encourage you to click more and more on their pages.

Don't understand why you shouldn't wash your hands before you wash your face.

Btw, your plastic shower head is probably a bacteria sanctuary. Don't catch the first blasts with your face.

Wash your hands after you do your laundry. Washing machines don't sterilize and you just pulled your wet everything out of there.

barefoot in the head: Don't understand why you shouldn't wash your hands before you wash your face.


I think she's saying that not washing your hands is a mistake, and not that you shouldn't do so.

I just get a Tostito and use it to scrape the grease off.

I sleep in a vat of ammonium hydroxide with ammonia-powered micro-robots that come and remove grime and dead skin from my face.

Take that, TODAY!

I think that you are correct.

I wash my hands before I piss or shiat. I don't want dirty things to touch my dirty peener.

The phrase "polishing a turd" comes to mind.

Except the crack reporter didn't even tell us how to do it properly, she just told us all the ways we're doing it wrong. The "You're doing it wrong, here's how to do it right" article just suddenly ended halfway through.

I roll around enough while I sleep that the pillow takes the days dirt off my face, just pop the pillow case in the wash once a week and you're good to go.

No. If you do, it won't have all the nutrient-soaked spots that can help you in the event you hitch a ride from a passing Vogon construction fleet ship.

Relax, you and the vag you stuck your face in last night are just as infected, if not more.
