So now that we know how to wash your face, let’s cover some of the logistics. Twice a day is the ideal number of times you should cleanse your skin. In terms of how long you should be doing it for, as a rule of thumb, your skin care routine should take as long as necessary until all the makeup and dirt is removed and you’ve gone through all five essential steps.
During the night, our skin accumulates sweat, oil and dirt so it’s important to refresh and cleanse your skin when you wake up.
This will help your skin look energized and also create a clean foundation for an SPF moisturizer and makeup. During the day, dirt, oil and particles called free radicals can latch on to our skin making it crucial to cleanse at night as well. It will also help you remove foundation, concealer, eye makeup from your skin. Not removing makeup can cause your pores to be clogged which results in blemishes such as blackheads or pimples.
