The easiest way to wash your face
What you may need to know
You may think that washing your face is a pretty straightforward daily ritual. A simple lather of soap and quick splash of water and youíre good to go. Right? Turns out many men complicate the process or, more commonly, skip a step, which can lead to dryness, irritation and breakouts. ďWhen it comes to skincare, washing your face , the less complicated you make it, the better off youíll be.However, a few rules come into play to ensure youíre getting the job done without harming your skin.
Step 1: Choose The Right Cleanser
Just because your skincare regimen doesnít consist of three or more steps doesnít mean you get to skip out on using a cleanser. The splash and go method doesnít remove bacteria and using your body wash as face wash is a big no-no. To avoid irritations and remove fungus, never mind sweat, use a gentle cleanser.
Step 2: Work your Product
Work your cleanser into a lather with your hands before applying it to your face. This helps to activate it and allows you to evenly distribute the suds as you wash. Remember, the point of washing is to eliminate bacteria so make sure to get into your hairline. All of that product build-up is a breakout waiting to happen,
Step 3: Use lukewarm Water
Despite the fact that a splash of cold water may wake you up, when washing, use lukewarm water. When you expose your skin to water that is too hot or too cold, you shock your system and stress out your skin. Stay away from the extremes. Using water that is too hot will enable excess moisture to escape, making it harder to replenish later. After washing, however, a quick, refreshing splash of cold water at the end wonít hurt and will help to close up your pores.
Step 4: Wash Strategically
Where you start and finish really depends on your skin type and lifestyle. If you have acne, or tend to have a build-up of oil or
sweat in a certain area like your forehead, wash everywhere else first and leave that area for last in order to remove any excess
residue. When showering, save washing your face until the end. This is especially effective since youíll be removing any shampoo and
conditioner residue as well.
Whether you choose to wash with your hands or use a soft washcloth, be gentle. Many men believe that the harder they scrub, the more
efficient theyíll be at removing dirt and oil, especially if they have facial hair. Exfoliation is part of the natural face washing
process, so you donít have to be abrasive. As long as youíre using a gentle cleanser morning and night, youíre doing your job. As
you age, using an exfoliator once a week will help remove dead skin cells that arenít naturally shedding as quickly anymore.
Many people take the time to wash, but are quick to skip out on the rinse, which is just as important. To avoid breakouts, make sure
to remove all of the cleanser. The hair and jawlines are often overlooked. Splash them a few extra times and gently pat dry.
Youíve heard it once, youíve heard it twice, but do you actually moisturize? Look at using moisturizer as the final step to washing
your face. The goal of soap is to alter the natural protective barrier of your skin. Therefore, to balance it out and add moisture
back into the skin, which reduces the risk of irritation post wash, use a light-weight moisturizer. Truth is, menís protective barriers
arenít as strong as womenís, so you need it even more.
While it may seem like a lot of to-doís for a simple act of cleansing, itís
more a matter of retraining yourself on the basics in order to get the best results. After all, a refreshing wash only involves a
little bit of soap, water and ó donít forget ó moisturizer. No one said your skincare regimen had to be complicated or abrasive to
be effective. Buy a quality moisturizer so you know its good.
