What are the steps to wash your face properly?


Washing your face is the first step in taking care of your skin. It looks easy, and many methods seem to be able to do it, but some of the operations of washing your face are actually harmful to the skin. If you haven't learned it, you can't really guarantee that your face washing steps are correct.

What are the steps to wash your face correctly?

The first step of washing your face: Wet your face

We all know that you need to get your face wet before washing your face, but the temperature of the water should be controlled, and use lukewarm water—not too hot or too cold.

Many people think that they have oily skin, so they need to be very clean when washing their face, and they like to wash their face with hot water. This is not actually the case, if the face wash water is too hot, it can cause a lot of damage to the skin. Washing your face with hot water can damage or lose the skin's own oily film, which can leave the skin feeling dry and tight.

In fact, warm water can wash your face very well, not only can open pores, but also prevent excessive cleaning. If you wash your face with cold water, it is even less recommended. First, the cleaning power is insufficient, and second, the pores are tightened, making it more difficult to wash your face.


The second step of washing your face: fully foaming and cleaning effect is good

No matter what kind of facial cleanser you use, you don't need to use too much, just squeeze out a coin-sized amount. Squeeze the lather into the palm of your hand to rub the lather up, then add a few drops of water with your fingertips to make the lather richer. Of course, if you use a konjac sponge, you will not only get a thicker foam, but you can also wash your face directly, which is more convenient and cleaner than a foam net.

When washing your face, the more foam the better, the cleanser itself has a lot of foam. If it is not washed sufficiently, it is easy to remain on the face, and the cleaning effect cannot be achieved.


The third step of washing your face: the technique of washing your face

After applying the foam to the face, massage gently in circular motions, do not rub up or down too hard. Elastic fibers are easily damaged, causing sagging and wrinkling of the skin.

The correct way is to massage gently from the bottom to the top, from the inside to the outside. About 15 times is enough. Oily skin can increase the frequency appropriately, and combination skin can focus on cleaning the lower forehead and nose to ensure that the oil in these parts is cleaned.

When massaged with a konjac sponge, the smooth surface of the Q-bomb promotes blood circulation to the skin and prevents excessive skin pulling. The 3D honeycomb structure absorbs excess oil and dirt on the skin's surface for a deep clean.


The fourth step of washing your face: Rinse the facial cleanser

After massaging, you can immediately rinse with water. Most of the facial cleansers can be washed with water in the basin first, and the movements should still be light.

Then, wash your face with water about 20 times. This is also to use lukewarm water, it is best to use running water here, after washing your face, it will be cleaner and minimize the residue of the face wash.

It is worth noting here that don't replace the flowing water with the water in the basin. Let's not talk about whether the washbasin is clean. The main reason is that the water in the basin will become more and more turbid after the interaction between hands and faces, and eventually become dirty. It is better to wash it by hand. In addition, if you repeatedly use the stagnant water in the washbasin, it is likely to return the dirt that has just been washed back to your face, so use running water.


The fifth step of washing your face: Dry the water on your face

It is estimated that many people have done well before, but a mistake has been made here. Be careful not to directly wipe your face back and forth with a towel or face towel. This principle is the same as washing your face in circular motions. Take a soft dry towel and gently press the moisture on your face to dry it.

If you squeeze out the water with a konjac sponge, gently wipe your face, and thoroughly dry the excess water on your face, it can help moisturize the skin more.
