So many times we think, the more we wash, the cleaner it gets or the more we scrub the less acne we will have…This is the wrong thinking when dealing with our faces.
I just read an interesting article about how to properly wash your face, and I’ve been trying it now for 1 week. I’ve noticed significant changes!
At night, do a thorough wash with a gentle cleanser. If you have normal skin exfoliate about once a week, and if you have dry skin or large pores exfoliate around 4 times a week. (This is light exfoliating, not hard-core scrubbing) Make sure all your make-up is removed before going to bed! Then, apply your favorite moisturizer before getting some shut-eye.
In the morning, splash room temperature water on your face and cleanse with your fingers. No wash cloth scrubbing!! Then pat dry with a towel, never rub dry, you don’t want to take out all the moisture from the water.
This process lets your skin figure out its natural oils and balance it. I have combination skin, and I’ve found that this method has made my skin look so much better! I hardly even need to use a moisturizer in the AM!
Try it, and see if you notice a difference!
