Cleaning our face is something no more considered anything special in terms of skin care– it’s just so obvious. There is pollution, dust, stress and what not to make our face endangered. Therefore, we need do beyond just cleaning our face. Check out these suggestions to make your cleansing experience much more effective.

Go slow & mild

Most people wash off their cleanser too quickly. Spend about one minute massaging your cleanser into your face, and then let it sit on the skin for another minute. Don’t forget to gently massage the side of the face though, right before the ears and right up to the hairline. Put in a bit of extra time at the T-zone.

Don’t overdo things

At the same time, be careful not to over-cleanse. Remember, all skin is different; some may need to cleanse morning and night, and others only need to cleanse in the evening. Work out what’s good for your skin.

Maximum Utilization

If you want a deep cleanse, don’t do it in the shower. The water in the shower will make your face too slippery for the cleanser to be effective.

Remove Make-up Before Cleansing

If you wear make-up, remove all make-up before cleansing. If your cleanser doubles as make-up remover, don’t think that you can get away with just using it once; you will definitely need to use it at least twice, particularly if you’re inclined to wear heavy make-up.

Twice A Day

For a thorough cleanse, double-cleanse. This is particularly effective for those with oily skin, in a warm climate, or if you’ve had a particularly strenuous work-out.

Adjust The Temperature 

Suddenly exposing your face to warm water can be too much, too soon, like in the shower. It’s best to gradually expose your face to the warmth by cupping warm water in your hand and splashing it gently before submerging your face in a hot shower.

Avoid Extremely Cold Water

Complete your cleanse by splashing cool water (not freezing) on your face to ‘close’ the pores. Extreme temperatures won’t do any favors to your skin. Pat your skin dry (don’t rub – it’s too harsh) with a face towel which will help with circulation.

Try to adjust your regular cleansing process by adding these simple yet effective tips and see the results for yourself!
