Benefits of Using Face Powder

We use to think of the powder that we apply after the bath. That is talc. There are two types of powder namely talc and talcum. Talcum is the one in which the talc is filtered and mixed with color or not. Talc is a little rough powder. For example, the powder which is used for prickly heat is the talc. It is poring and is a little bigger. So it is not necessary to be very fine since we are using it for our body. It is used while after bathing, to keep dry, antibacterial effect and for fragrance and the sweat, prickly heat, to avoid the blisters.

We feel refreshed for a long time when we apply the talc after bathing and wiping the wetness and if we wear a dress. We will not feel wet or sweat. We should take a bath after we reach home or before going to bed. If the talc is present in the body for a longer time the pores will be blocked. So after some time it should be removed and cleaned after that we want to be applied again.

Some may feel fresh when they apply talc while going to bed. But do not be with the talc all the time. If it is in the body for a half-day be without the talc for another half a day.
