Do You Dry Your Face With a Towel?

About a year ago I met an elderly woman who had the most gorgeous skin. I asked her what her beauty secret was and she told me that she air-dries her face.

She said that after washing, she wipes her product-covered hands on a towel, and therefore she would never dream of letting it touch her face. She believes that letting her face dry naturally and then patting on moisturizer and eye cream while her skin is still damp has given her this lovely complexion.

What she said makes sense, and from time to time—when I am feeling really patient—I'll let my face air-dry too. What are your thoughts on this? Do you ever dry your face with a towel?
