Cotton can make you sick. How to protect your skin.
The clothes we wear, the sheets on our bed and the towels we dry off with are made with cotton. In the fields, cotton is sprayed heavily with pesticides. I’ve heard of cases where people get horrible rashes or end up in the hospital from wearing new jeans! Whenever you buy new clothes, bedding, or anything that comes in contact with your skin, make sure to wash them in soap and water first. When using cotton balls on your face, spend the extra money for certified organic cotton balls. Just like washing your hands for health reasons, make sure to wash other items too!
