Are you washing your face properly?

How to wash your face


Ok so your thinking shes joking right? No am serious. Do we really know how to properly clean and wash our face daily?

It is so important to do it the right way so your skin is clean and fresh. Not everyone uses these steps. It's literally splash your face with water and rub off with a towel. Well theres a technique to everything specially when it comes to something so simple yet delicate.

Here's my tips on how to wash your face correctly;

1. Wash you face with warm water

Once your awake and brushed your teeth. Start off by washing your face with warm water. Using your hands wash your whole face and neck area. Make sure your hands are washed before doing this and if you use any soap product or hand wash then it is clean from it so it doesn't transfer on to your face. Make sure you wash your face with Warm water as this is gentle on your Skin. Don't wash with hot or cold straight away as this can irritate your skin specially if your sensitive, acne prone or even have large porse.

2. Use a face wash or cleanser

Once your face is washed with warm water it is now easier for any face wash or cleanser to work on your skin instead of applying on to dry skin to help clean and do its job. Its important to use a good wash that suits your skin type. I personally find Soaps very drying and gentle washes work better for my dry skin. Well we are at a time werr there are thousands of skin care products so i say scrap the old school soap method ;). Washing with a good face wash helps remove all bacteria, dirt and dead skin that was formed during the night while you were sleeping away.

3. Exfoliate - This method should be done maximum 2-3 times a week

Exfoliating your skin is a great way of really deep cleaning your skin specailly those who have flaky, dry skin surfaces. There are many homemade remedies you can use to do this as well as great drugstore and branded produxts out there in there market. I will give you more infomation and advise on exfoliation on a different post.

4. Finish off with Cold water

Not everyone will agree but I believe by finishing off your face with a splash of cold water helps to close off your pores. So no dirt or bacteria can get inside your open pores after.

5. Drying your face

Right so this step you must pat dry not rub or leave wet. Pat drying allows you to be gentle to your skin. Anyone who suffers from acne prone skin, sensitive, blemishes any sort of problematic skin. I would advise having your own seprate face flannel or towel just for the face. Wash your flannel at least twice a week to get rid of any build up dirt or bacteria while using and drying.

These step seems like its a chore for some but i promise taking 8 - 10 minutes in your bathroom during the morning and evening and this with change your skin game.

Once the face wash is acheived correctly then you can Tone and Moisturize your Skin...
