Face Cleansing Tips: Advice on Taking Care of Your Most Distinctive Feature

Close

As practically everyone would agree, face cleansing is a necessity for so many reasons besides being what your mother told you to do.

Given our highly polluted world of dirt and impurities, fickle temperatures and the lethal reach of the sun, there are skin threats all around us. To combat them just takes a daily cleasing ritual, which is easier that you may think. Experts say a few simple tips and tricks, adhering to certain rules and picking the right product will help you protect and pump up the radiance and youthfulness of your face.

You have to think of face washing as a pleasurable experience starting with always washing with a facial cleanser appropriate to your skin type. Whether oily, dry or normal, you can figure out or consult a dermologist about your kind of skin, and pick products that work for it without leaving your skin thristy.

Yahoo recommends that those with dry skin should lean toward oils or creams but other skin types will benefit from certain foaming, lather-producting cleansers.

You should also consider your skin's sensitivity and likeness to get acne, according to Beauty In Fitness.

Once you found the right product, remember that a face wash should consist of more than splashing; you should  include a gentle massage with your fingertips skipping any unnecessary roughness or scrubbing. By doing that, you stimulate the body's lymph system to produce and circulate blood and oxygen to your face, making way for healthier skin. But warning: remember to wash your hands first.

Beauty In Fitness advises that you should wet face completely with lukewarm water, squeeze a dollop of cleanser onto fingertips and rub them together.

Then, massage your face with gentle, circular motions for 30 seconds to a minute. If you want to cleanse away excess dirt or makeup, make sure to use an exfoliating muslin cloth to remove dead cells when rinsing. Also, make sure to rinse hairline, neck and nooks on both sides of your nose.

To top off the experience, splash face with cool water two or three times to close pores and then gently pat dry with a clean towel. And don't forget to moisturize!

Of course, washing twice a day to remove clogging oils from your pores is recommended to jump your way to flawless skin. And don't worry -- looking better on the outside should also make you feel better on the inside.
