How To Properly Wash Your Face
Learning how to properly wash your face is not just for pre-schoolers. If not done correctly, it can cause great damage to skin. Before getting started - understand you cannot wash away acne or razor bumps with hot water and a rough washcloth. Washing only removes oils from the skin’s surface, not from within the plugged ducts. And scrubbing your face may actually make things worse causing irritation to skin and pores. Wash face with hands, as gently as possible. Be mindful of over washing. Over washing your face will stimulate sebaceous glands to produce more sebum.
Cleaning Face Properly:
Thouroughly Wash Hands - Washing hands reduces the likelihood of spreading bacteria to the face.
Wet Face - Splash warm water to face with hands.
Apply Cleanser/Facial Scrub - Use Imperial Touch Facial Cleanser or Imperial Touch Stimulating Facial Scrub . Follow label instructions. Apply recommended amount of cleanser to face. Using fingertips, gently work cleanser into skin using a circular motion; paying particular attention to hairline and neck (acne zones).
Rinse Well - Splash with warm water until there is no residue left on skin.
Dry Face - Use a clean towel. Gently blot face. Never rub, as you could irritate skin. After blotting with towel, allow skin to air dry at least 15-30 minutes.
To maximize these skin care benefits, wash face twice a day (morning/night).
