When choosing a cotton pad, its touch and elasticity are the primary factors to judge. It should feel soft to the touch and malleable. Since the cotton pad is not light, even the lights in the store may damage its quality. Therefore, when buying cotton pads, if they are displayed in a row, don't take the first one, but take the back, because the cotton pads in the back will not enjoy a lot of "sunbathing". Another most practical way to distinguish is to fold the facial cotton pads in half and rub them together. If the cotton scraps fall off without rubbing a few times, of course it cannot be used.
The material that does not irritate the skin is directly in contact with the skin. Natural cotton is the best choice for the material, which should be soft and comfortable to the touch. At the same time, avoid the addition of any chemical substances, such as fluorescent agents. In terms of size, you should consider the correct way to take the cotton pad easily. The index finger and ring finger are used to clip the cotton pad to the middle finger. This action is the most convenient to control the force and direction. Each person has different finger lengths to choose which suits you and is convenient to hold. Just take it. The thickness should be moderate. Do not use thin cotton pads for fear of wasting skin care products. The cotton pad used for skin care must have a thickness of at least 3 cm, so that the amount of lotion absorbed when wiping is sufficient. Not only the skin feels very comfortable, but it will not cause skin irritation due to repeated friction. If the thickness of the cotton pad is insufficient, two or more pieces can be combined and used. The density should be sufficient. The density of the cotton pad should be strong enough so that it will not break when wiping the skin, causing the cotton lint to fall off or remain. Before use, you can gently pull the cotton pad to test. The cotton pad that is easily torn indicates that the density is not enough.
Because it is in direct contact with the facial skin, it is necessary to avoid the addition of any chemical substances, such as bleaching agents, because the chemical residues in the cotton pad may dissolve out after encountering moisture. Natural cotton pads should have a faint cotton smell. If there is any fragrance, stop using it. If possible, you can do a small experiment at home. Use a lighter to ignite a piece of cotton pad and then blow it out. The smell of the cotton pad with chemical substances is pungent, and the high-quality cotton pad should have the smell of natural plant ash.
If the cotton pad is too thin, the toner will not absorb enough when wiping, and the skin will feel very uncomfortable. Excessive friction will cause irritation to the skin. If the cotton pad is not thick enough, you can use the two pieces together. A cotton pad that looks relatively thin may break when wiped, and it will be quite embarrassing to wipe the entire face with cotton wool. When selecting, you can gently pull the test with your hands. The cotton pad that is easily torn indicates that the density is not enough.
It has always been unscientific to judge the quality of a cotton pad based on its water absorption and release properties. Many people think that inferior cotton pads are too absorbent, causing a lot of lotion to be "eaten" and feel wasted. Really high-quality facial cotton pads have both good water absorption and water releasability. You can pour about 2ML of lotion on the cotton pad to see if there is any leakage of the lotion to test the water absorption of the cotton pad. Then, squeeze out the lotion in the cotton pad to see how much water can be released. The closer the extruded lotion is to the amount that starts to absorb, the better the water release of the cotton pad. This also means that you will not waste lotion by using this cotton pad.
