Washing your face is an essential part of your skincare routine that you should not take lightly.


This is because dirt and oil in the skin clog your pores and lead to acne.

Washing your face is not as easy as it sounds; there is a method to it.

Coldwater will not clean the dirt in your face properly. If the water is too hot it can lead to irritation and dry skin. Warm or lukewarm water is the best.

If your skin is dry then use a hydrating cleanser, but if you have oily skin then use a foaming cleanser.

You do not need a sponge to clean your face because it irritates your skin. Plus, you do not need to put your cleanser on your face for too long. Three to ten minutes is enough.

A good moisturizer when your face is still a little wet is a great idea. Moisturizer helps to seal in moisture and prevents wrinkles and fine lines on your face.

You don’t have to wash your face more than twice. Once in the morning and the second at night is enough. The only other time you should wash your face is after a work-out or sweating profusely.

Dirty towels keep bacteria trapped in your skin. So have more than one face towel and make sure they are properly clean.

Wipes are a big no for makeup, always use a cleanser to wipe all the makeup.

Do not forget that you can not be free from acne, pimples and other irritation without a clean face
