How Do You Use a Cotton Pad?
Unlike cotton swabs, cotton pads have a larger surface area that makes them great for makeup removal and for applying toner to your face. To use cotton pads, soak the pad in toner or serum, then gently wipe it across your face in an upward motion. Use minimal pressure and never tug on your skin. If the cotton pad gets dirty, discard it and use a new one until your face is completely clean. You can use a cotton pad for cleanser, moisturizer, and toner. Try Beauty 360 Exfoliating Premium Cotton Rounds, which feature added texture to help cleanse and exfoliate the skin. Cotton pads can also be used for nail polish remover and eye makeup remover.
Can I Recycle Cotton Pads?
Even if your cotton pads are made of 100% cotton, they typically cannot be recycled. However, used cotton pads can be added to compost as the material does break down and is usually biodegradable. Cotton swabs typically include a plastic stick or sticks made of paper, and may also not be able to be recycled. Ask your local trash removal or recycling center whether or not cotton pads can be added to your recycling bin. Premium cotton rounds made of organic cotton are more likely able to be recyclable than some other options.
