Face-wash­ing blun­ders to avoid.

YOU’RE NOT CON­SID­ER­ING YOUR SKIN TYPE

Not all cleansers are one-prod­uct-fit­sall when it comes to skin type, so pick one with the for­mula that suits your skin best. For in­stance, if you have dry skin, not only is a cleansing oil great at re­mov­ing makeup and grime, it doesn’t break down your skin’s mois­ture too. Chanel L’huile Anti-Pol­lu­tion Cleansing Oil, RM180

YOU TEND TO OVEREXFOLIATE

If you have a habit of scrub­bing hard upon cleansing, it needs to stop! Opt for a gen­tle yet deep-cleansing face wash that strips off dirt and grime ef­fec­tively with­out ir­ri­tat­ing your skin. Only use face scrubs once or twice a week – also, steer away from cleansers that con­tain mi­crobeads! Not only do they col­lec­tively pol­lute oceans, they might cause your skin to dry out eas­ily too. Kiehl’s Cal­en­dula Deep Cleansing Foam­ing Face Wash, RM120

YOU DON’T RE­MOVE MAKEUP BE­FORE CLEANSING

The dou­ble-cleansing method is im­por­tant to clear resid­ual makeup and sun­screen, en­sur­ing that your face is re­ally clean, with nei­ther im­pu­ri­ties nor traces of foun­da­tion! Re­ly­ing solely on micellar wa­ter or cleansing oil isn’t do­ing your skin a favour. Team ‘em up in­stead! Com­mit to us­ing a re­li­able makeup re­mover be­fore us­ing your cleanser and rins­ing it off. Innisfree Green Tea Cleansing Wa­ter, RM50

YOU DON’T PAY AT­TEN­TION TO MOIS­TURE

Are you fa­mil­iar with the tight-skin feel­ing af­ter you’re done wash­ing your face? Pri­ori­tise a hy­drat­ing face wash like this to leave your skin plump. Don’t just leave it all to your mois­turiser, as each prod­uct in your beauty reg­i­men counts! Laneige Cleansing Moist Cream Cleanser, RM100

YOUR CLEANSING DE­VICE ISN’T CLEAN TO START WITH

Cleanse with your hands, a mitt, a sponge or even an elec­tric brush – it’s your call! But what­ever your choice might be, make sure that they’re clean be­fore you use them. Lather your hands be­fore cleansing and use pre-rinsed, clean de­vices for your own good! Eve Lom Cleanser, RM329

YOU’RE BUY­ING CLEANSERS MAINLY BE­CAUSE OF THEIR PACK­AG­ING – OR PRICE!

Although this isn’t re­ally wrong, first things first, make sure that the face wash that you’re putting into your cart holds great cleansing at­tributes. There are no brownie points for scor­ing a cleansing pack that’s just pretty or cheap but isn’t ef­fec­tive. Bos­cia Tsub­aki Jelly Ball Cleanser, RM94
