THE RIGHT WAY TO WASH YOUR FACE
It is possible that you’ve been washing your face the wrong way. Washing your face goes beyond splashing water on your face and rubbing your cleanser all over. It’s important you do it the right way in order to adequately remove makeup and dead cells, prevent acne, dull skin, and improve skin health.
It’s one thing to be beautiful and another thing to have a face that glows. Washing your face the right way is one of the ways to get that glow.
These are proven, right ways to wash your face.
1. Remove Your Makeup.
Most cleansers are unable to remove every debris on the face, especially when you’ve had your makeup on all day. It is important you use a mild makeup remover. A makeup wipe is also very useful.
2. Wash Your Hands.
This is a step you should never skip. Before you start washing your face, make sure your hands are clean. It’s a way of protecting your skin and getting the desired results from the products you use.
3. Use Lukewarm Water.
Hot water strips your skin of its natural oils. This causes the skin to dry out easily, making it very itchy and flaky with time. Cold water prevents the pores from opening to remove dirt. It’s important that you wash your face with lukewarm water.
4. Wash Your Face Gently.
When you wash your face aggressively or for a very long time, it can make your skin red and irritated. Do it the right way – Wet your face with lukewarm water, apply a mild soap or cleanser and in a circular motion, wash your face using your fingertips from the forehead, around the eyes, down to the cheek and finally the chin. Then, rinse.
5. Pat Dry With A Face Towel.
Do not rub. Rubbing pulls your skin. It can lead to irritation and the appearance of wrinkles over a period of time. A gentle pat is all you need to do. It’s also important that you designate a small soft towel for your face. Do not share your face towel with anyone.
How you wash your face daily can make a huge difference in your look. Put the above tips into practice to get that beautiful, healthy and glowing face.
