Learn the 5 most common face-washing habits that cause more damage than good:
PICKING THE WRONG PRODUCT
The right cleanser removes dirt, makeup, and grime, but does not steal away your skin’s natural oils or healthy cells. Find one that fits the need of your skin, the wrong product can cost you your beauty!
Anything is excess is always bad! Washing once or twice a day is good protocol but any more than that can irritate your skin. Give your skin a break from time to time.
USING THE WRONG WATER TEMPERATURE
Hot water opens pores and cold water closes them. No That is just a MYTH! Lukewarm water is the best bet to cleanse gently yet effectively.
Always pat! NEVER rub! Rubbing might feel really good, but it pulls your skin, which puts your elastin at risk! AND never share a towel! It only spreads bacteria!
WAITING TO MOISTURIZE
Moisturize your face as soon as your done washing and patting your face with a nice soft face towel to maximize absorption and help seal in moisture.
