How to Properly Cleanse Your Face
- Posted on: Apr 15 2017
One of the best things that you can do for your skin is to cleanse it every night. Cleansing your skin not only helps you to fight against acne-causing oil but it also can protect you from developing fine lines and wrinkles. Surprisingly, not many people know how to properly cleanse their face. This article will give you a few skin cleansing tips to keep your skin in the best condition possible. Read on to learn more.
Use a Gentle Cleanser
If you are the type of person that uses the same bar soap to wash both your face and body, you aren’t doing your skin any favors. A typical bar soap can dry your skin out and strip it of its natural oils— causing you to break out. A gentle facial cleanser, however, will properly cleanse your skin without causing any damage in the process.
Consider Using a Clarisonic
If you usually use just your hands or a washcloth to wash your face every night, consider taking it up a notch and using a Clarisonic. A Clarisonic is a handheld brush device that uses a pulsating mechanism to target the top few layers of your skin— leaving you with that squeaky clean skin that you have always wanted.
Use a Toner
After you wash your face, you may still have some dirt and makeup on it. To get your skin as clean as possible, use a toner after you wash your face. Simply apply a small amount of toner to a cotton ball and then rub it across your face focusing on your T-zone (forehead, chin, and nose).
Cleansing your skin both morning and night will keep your skin in the best shape possible. By using a gentle cleanser, a Clarisonic, and a toner, you can get your skin as clean as ever. To learn more about how you can cleanse your skin, contact Dr. Anna Petropoulos.
