Those of us that suffer from allergies, dry and irritable skin are used to getting picky in what fabrics to wear and what fabrics to sleep in. But there’s another everyday item that touches our skin when it’s at its most sensitive – right after a long shower. Yes, we are talking about bath towels.
Linen bath towels are a great choice if you or your kids have sensitive skin. Here are a few reasons why:
Linen towels tend to absorb water faster than loopy woven cotton towels. This means less rubbing and less irritating your skin at its most fragile state – when it’s damp and softened by steam. Just press the linen towel on your skin gently – you’ll be dry in seconds and without any unnecessary irritation.

The natural properties of linen are what makes this fabric the go-to choice for people with skin conditions. Not only are linen towels breathable, they also have a neutral pH balance, making them perfect for sensitive skin. Linen creates a great microclimate for your skin – just wrap yourself up in your favourite linen towel and enjoy!
There’s a reason why the most luxurious European spas offer a service of wrapping the body in a damp linen fabric. This procedure is believed to cleanse the organism of toxins and, most importantly, revitalize it. Because of the microscopic breaks throughout linen, the towel provides your skin with a light massaging effect, leaving it feeling revitalized and refreshed.
