Part 1: Cleansing Tips

  • Facial skin should be cleansed every morning and evening.
  • Use a cleanser that is gentle and that will not strip the skin of its natural oils. Even acne prone skin should not be stripped of all oils.
  • Wash your hands first then wet the face.
  • Use a dime size amount of cleanser and gently massage into facial skin using circular motions for 30-60 seconds each morning and evening.
  • Only use your fingers to cleanse the delicate facial skin. Abrasive washcloths or scrubs can irritate the skin leading to bumps and blemishes.
  • A good cleanser should be gentle enough and effective enough to use to remove all eye make-up.
  • Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry. Do not scrub or rub facial skin.
  • Cleansing in the evening is important to remove makeup and residue from the day. This will allow for better penetration of your anti-aging serums and creams. Evening cleansing will also decrease pore clogging and breakouts.
  • Cleansing skin in the morning removes the excess dead skin cells from the skin’s regenerative and anti-aging processes that occurred during sleep.
  • Cleansing skin in the morning also decreases oiliness during the day especially for acne prone skin.
