Skincare advice can be found in abundance with just a single, quick search on the Internet. The phenomenon is a wildly confusing process and with all the different available products available in the market, it becomes difficult to know exactly what you need to be using and how. There are so many things to consider before you settle with a skin care routine that works for you and your skin and there may be times when you forget even something as basic as how to properly wash your face. Fret not; we’re here to save the day! Here’s some advice on how to properly get the grime off your face from the day gone by.
The first step to cleaning your face is to cleanse it well. An oil-based cleanser works well to eliminate toxins and impurities without drying out the skin. This step ensures that the layer of makeup comes off, creating a base to continue your cleansing process. The less you touch your face with your hands at this stage, the better. Use cotton pads or cleansing sponges to remove the cleanser from your face.
The next step to do is to exfoliate your skin. While many suggest exfoliating your face should not be practiced on a daily basis, dermatologists have suggested that this is in fact not the case and a light scrub should be used every day to rid your skin of impurities. Exfoliators will remove dead skin cells and flaky skin that can make your complexion look dull.
After completing the exfoliation step, you’ll need to use a gentle face wash to wash away any residue left from the cleanser and exfoliator. You should wash your face in gentle, circular movements as you cleanse. It can sometimes be difficult to rid your skin of environmental aggressors including pollution and free radicals; which if left on your skin can cause rapid ageing. Ensure that your cleansing process is at least two minutes long.
