How to Properly Wash Your Face

Overview

A properly washed face is the foundation for good skin health and for cosmetic application. Rather than using harsh, oil-stripping soaps, you should find an oil-free cleanser that won't irritate your skin. Use your fingers instead of a washcloth or mesh scrubber. You'll only strip the natural oils from your skin and that may lead to excess production of oil and an acne breakout. If you already have acne, find a facial cleanser that has salicylic acid in it. Don't use cleansers with scrubbing agents or beads, according to acne.org.

Step 1

Stopper your clean sink and fill it with warm water. Using your hands, splash the water on your face.

Step 2

Squeeze a small amount of an oil-free cleanser on your hand and rub your wet hands together so you create a foam. Using your fingertips, gently massage the cleansing foam into your skin beginning at your forehead and working down to your chin. Pay special attention to the forehead, chin and sides of your nose as these areas generate excess skin oil.

Step 3

Rinse your hands and squeeze some more cleanser onto your hand and continue to clean your skin.

Step 4

Rinse your face gently and make sure to get every bit of cleanser off your skin.

Step 5

Using your soft towel, blot--do not rub--your face dry. Your skin is now ready for exfoliation and toning.
