Learning how to clean your face properly can give you a lifetime of gorgeous skin. Cleansing your face should be easy, you think. However, there are many factors that affect doing it properly. For those that wear a ton of makeup, you need a cleanser that emulsifies the makeup. For those that are super active, you need to remove the dirt from your skin. All of the buildup of toxins and dirt contribute to many skin conditions.
3 Helpful Tips on How to Clean Your Face
#1: Use the Right Cleanser for Your Skin Use a cleanser that is made for your skin type and skin conditions. If you have oily skin, don’t use a creamy cleanser. If you have dry, dehydrated skin, use a creamy cleanser. Also, while you are picking a cleanser for your face, think about what kind of cleanser is used on your body too. Just because everyone sees your face, doesn’t mean the body shouldn’t have soft, smooth skin.
#2:Use a Soft Washcloth to Cleanse Your Face Use a soft washcloth instead of your hands or a handheld brush like a Clarisonic to cleanse. Cleaning your face is a daily event – it should happen morning and evening. Using your hands is okay as long as you wash them first, but it doesn’t help to emulsify the makeup or “dirt”. Using a soft washcloth every day and changing it daily is a must. It keeps bacteria from your hands affecting your face. Also, a new washcloth every day is a must for acne clients.
#3. Don’t Over Dry Your Skin Over-drying the skin is one of the worst things you can do for your face. The skin is very delicate and the top layer of skin should not feel dry. It should feel soft and smooth. One of the biggest mistakes is feeling like you should strip all of the oil off of the skin. The skin needs healthy oils. Omega 3 and Omega 6 are needed as nutrients for the skin. Over drying the skin leads to more oil as the brain doesn’t “know” that you have just washed off all of the good oils. Keep the skin clean, but not over stripped of oil.
Cleaning your face is something you do every day. Learning how to clean your face properly is one of the keys to beautiful skin. Follow these #bellabeautytips for cleaning your skin and have a super Saturday!
