Surveys conducted by skin care market research companies all show that most men and women do not correctly wash their faces each day. What is the “proper” wash-your-face technique?
1. Wash your hands first. Dirt and Bacteria are skin irritants. Making sure that they are not present on your fingertips and palms ensures that you are not self-contaminating your skin.
2. Use lukewarm water only. Hot water dries your skin and freezing cold water can do just the same. And if possible, have a water softening system installed for your house as soft water is more gentler on your skin, scalp, and hair.
3. Remove makeup separately. Removing this layer of gunk from your face first ensures that your facial cleanser you will use afterwards can actively work to clean your pores instead of having to work just to get your makeup off. Makeup also is known to clog pores and cause acne if not removed thoroughly.
4. Don’t hurry. Rushing any step just negates the entire facial cleansing routine.
These four skincare tips for proper facial cleansing will ensure that your complexion stays healthy and vibrant.
