I didn't notice the hand towel as warm or anything from possibly contacting heat pad. The heat pad may have been turned on just before but it was turned off when being carried and when it could have brushed or rubbed against towel.

Even if heating pad brushed or rubbed against hand towel while it was being carried and you used that towel to dry or lightly press against face while drying after washing face, there would not be any flattening or lengthening of face or facial bones?
