Wash Your Hands
To begin with, wash your hands. If you wash your face with dirty hands, no matter the fact that you are using a cleanser, you will redistribute some of the muck directly onto your face. Clean hands mean a great start to the process so begin there.
Use Lukewarm Water
Much like Goldilocks, you want to use a water temp that is just right and lukewarm is the ticket. It’s even recommended by the American Academy of Dermatology. If the water is too hot or too cold, it can irritate the skin.
Using your fingertips, gently circulate the cleanser around your face and neck. If you choose to use a washcloth, make sure that it is clean. Reusing cloths can redeposit dirt back into your skin. The same goes for any electronic cleansing mechanisms. Make sure the head is clean and that you have followed the manufacturer’s recommendations for changing out the heads.
Using lukewarm water again, rinse away the cleanser. Easy!
It is easy to grab a towel and overdo this step. You want to pat the gentle skin on your face dry. Don’t rub your face roughly and irritate your skin in the process.
And now, you are done! Naturally, there are other steps that can become a part of your cleansing routine like exfoliation. If you choose to do so, choose an exfoliant that is gentle. It is easy to overdo this step. Toners are a great step too, just make sure you do this after you cleanse. Complete every cleanse session with a great moisturizer and serums for your needs and you are good to go. We told you it was pretty simple!
