Face Wash Routine :
Updated: Aug 27, 2022
A common benefit of face wash is the removal of dirt, oil, and other unwanted debris. Throughout the day the skin on your face is continually covered with bacteria, pollutants, viruses, dirt, and old (dead) skin cells. Daily facial washing removes these impurities to give the skin a fresh look.
Use warm water on the skin to open up the pores and loosen dirt. Water that is too hot can shock the skin and cause broken capillaries. Gently remove all the make-up with a cotton pad soaked with olive oil before washing your face. This allows thorough cleaning. Apply face wash onto the fingertips of one hand. Rub the hands together to form a lather. This will help to activate the cleanser. Move your fingertips in a circular motion along the face and neck. It stimulates blood circulation. Then, rinse the cleanser off by splashing lukewarm water on the face. Do not rub the face as this can cause irritation. Pat your face dry with a clean towel. After washing, hydrate your skin with a light moisturizer,” explained Dr Rana.
Washing your face for a longer duration of time doesn’t mean it is effective. Instead, wash your face for only 20 to 30 seconds. Washing your face for too long, especially if the cleanser contains any exfoliating ingredients, can quickly lead to red and irritated skin.
