Hey Beautiful Ladies.... Hope everyone had a nice weekend =-) Have you ever wondered if you are washing your face the correct way? I know many of you right now are like "huh, what is she talking about, there isn't a right or wrong way to washing your face!" But there is. If you want clear skin, that's soft to the touch and glows this is the post for you...read on....
-First you start off by WASHING your HANDS.
-Wet your face with warm water to open your pores. Then you wash your face with a cleanser that suites your skin type, here you will wash your face doing circular movements, this will help break down the dirt, be gentle there is no need to be rough when washing your face.
tip: let the cleanser sit for a minute or two to penetrate your skin.
-After you rinse your face with warm water to remove the cleanser, then rinse it off with COLD WATER, this will actually CLOSE your PORES and PREVENT dirt from getting in...which causes pimples which we all hate...
-PAT your face dry and be GENTLE, do not RUB your face with a towel, PAT IT DRY is the key.
-After your face is DRY then apply a toner, this is a must to toning your skin and helping with blemishes, do not skip this step. Allow the toner to dry completely before moving on.
-Finally choose a SPF Moisturizer for your skin type and gently rub in.
That's it...now you are on your way to better, healthier, softer, beautiful skin =-)
Remember to wash your face 2X's a day, in the morning and at night. Another tip, before washing your face, use a makeup remover to remove all makeup...this will ensure you are getting all the dirt and oils from your face.
ADVICE::: women with combination skin or oily skin should look for a cleanser that is strong containing oil-absorbing ingredients and those with sensitive skin like myself or dry skin should look for a milder formula with more nourishing and moisturizing ingredients.
3Keys to choosing a good cleanser::
1. Non-comedogenic (wont clog pores)
2. Hypoallergenic (wont irritate the skin)
3. Non-acnegenic (wont cause acne)
