Who knew there was an acne-enemy hiding in your favorite comfy sweater?!The fabric softeners that smell so lovely and put the cozy in your coziest fabrics can aggravate your acne. What makes everything soft is a waxy residue that can transfer to your skin and clog your pores. This goes for ANY fabric softener--the ones you put in your washer OR those little sheets you put in your dryer.
And don't let "organic" or "natural" labels fool you; they will all clog your pores.
The same goes for those wonderfully fragranced laundry detergents. Those perfumes can be trouble for your acne as they are considered irritants. Wash everything that comes in contact with your skin with fragrance-free detergent like Cheer Free, All Free & Clear, Tide Free, or Arm & Hammer Free.
As for fabric softeners, you won’t be defeated by static cling! You can pick up a pair of anti-static dryer balls at your local Bed Bath and Beyond for as little as $5!
