Changing seasons require a different beauty routine. A good face cleansing regimen however is constant.
It’s straightforward enough—cleanse, scrub, rinse. Not so fast. Knowing how to wash your face can make a world of a difference to your complexion. Not just now, but even a decade later. Quick tip—over exuberant scrubbing will give you wrinkles. So will hitting the pillow without removing your make-up. Well, it’s not too late to start over.
1 Washing your hands first
Think of all the things you touched today. The doorknobs, car doors, and handles. Now think of all the germs, oil and dirt on your hands. you don’t want that on your face, right? Start by thoroughly washing your hands with a germicide hand wash.
2 Remove eye make-up
Eye make-up is meant to last. Therefore, using a regular face wash and hoping all that gunk washes out of your lashes and eyelids is a recipe for eye infections and dark circles. The key is to first gently remove eye make-up, using a creamy make-up remover or make-up remover oil. No scrubbing please.
3 Remove face make-up
make-up removal is a two-step process. Face wash alone isn’t enough to remove foundation, concealer, lipstick or your handy compact. you need a creamy make-up remover to deep cleanse pores and remove the day’s built-up oil and grime. Work into the skin in circular motions and wipe it all off with a cotton pad.
4 Don’t use a grainy exfoliator
One needs to exfoliate twice a week to remove dead and dull cells. But grainy exfoliators— contain walnut or apricot kernels—are unnecessarily harsh and cause tiny tears on the skin. Opt for a gentle exfoliation with a micro bead exfoliator (like Jojoba beads) or papaya, pineapple fruit enzyme-based product and use it twice weekly.

It is by far the commonest face cleansing mistake most women make. Expensive doesn’t equal effective. and what works for your friend may not work for you. Pick a phthalate and parabenfree formula. Oily skinned women should use one that contains spot control salicylic acid. Combination skin? Try a foaming cleanser to deep cleanse pores and prevent breakouts. For dry skins, using a non-soap creamy cleanser will ensure your skin never feels tight and itchy after you wash it.
