3 Face Washing Mistakes You Could Be Making. The mistakes that you may be committing at the sink and why it never feels totally clear and clean…
You wash your face but it never feels totally clean or clear. Can you relate? Cleansing your face is one of the most important step in skin care routine. Even if you have the best and most expensive cleanser, if you are not using it correctly it won’t get the job done. Today’s post is gonna be about the mistakes that you may be committing at the sink.
3 Face Washing Mistakes
- You are not washing your hands
It is very important to wash your hands before cleansing your face so that you will not transfer the dirt and bacteria to your face as you cleanse your face. Same goes if you are using a washcloth, please make sure also that these are clean or SKIP IT as it is too abrasive for your skin. They’re also a breeding ground for bacteria. (If you will really use one, please remember, it has to be laundered every time).
- You are not using an oil cleanser
There are two different types of impurities: oil-based (sebum, makeup and sunscreen) and water based (sweat). Remember, if makeup or sunscreen is not removed from your skin, it’s a go signal for breakouts. That is why it is very important to remove impurities completely with an oil cleanser.
- Using oil cleansers on damp skin
It should be applied onto dry skin. It also takes a bit of massaging to remove all the impurities; makeup, sunscreen and the like). Massage it for at least 20 seconds, DO NOT RUSH!
BONUS: You exfoliate too much
Exfoliating helps improve your skin’s tone and texture. Do it in moderation, otherwise you will irritate your skin. Do this at night as it is the time when your skin produces new cells. And for God’s sake, do not exfoliate more than three times a week! You’re welcome :*
