7 Mistakes You Make While Washing Your Face
Take a look at your skin, a look really close. Are your pores completely cleaned? Have you really removed all makeup? Probably not – because most people do not wash their face properly. Here are seven pitfalls to avoid when cleaning with your favorite cleaner:
YOUR HANDS ARE SALES.
You clean your face with your hands covered with bacteria. Make sure they are clean before touching your face.
YOU GO TOO MUCH.
We know you want your face to be clean, but scrubbing vigorously is the wrong way to go. Intense rubbing irritates the skin. To clean your face gently and naturally, simply massage the cleanser into your face with your fingertips in a circular motion.
DO NOT RINSE PROPERLY.
After thoroughly applying the cleanser, you must make sure you completely rinse your skin. After all, without proper rinsing, cleaner residue and impurities accumulate on the surface of the skin. Do not neglect your neck, hairline, jaw and nose – these are the most often overlooked areas. Promote the use of a soft washcloth, like those of baby!
YOU USE INCORRECT WATER TEMPERATURE.
Lower the temperature in the rinsing step. Although warm water is nice, the heat dries out and affects the natural protective oils in your skin. Promote warm water to clean your face effectively.
FRICTION YOUR FACE WITH A TOWEL.
Just as rigorous rubbing irritates the face, scrubbing with a towel to dry it is also to be avoided. Treat your skin gently.
YOU DO NOT USE A TONIC.
Why is it favorable to use a tonic? A full sweep with a tonic is a great way to remove the last traces of dirt and makeup. In addition, the tonic restores your skin’s natural balance of pH, it perfectly prepares your skin for the next steps of your care routine.
DO NOT HEDGE IMMEDIATELY.
Your washing routine should always end with a dose of hydration (protective cream for the day and regenerative for the night). Do not wait – apply your moisturizer immediately for easy mixing with moist skin and moisture seal.
Do you want a clean face? In the evening, you can take advantage of using double cleaning when you are in the presence of makeup.
