One of the best things that you can do for your skin is to cleanse it every night. Cleansing your skin not only helps you to fight against acne-causing oil but it also can protect you from developing fine lines and wrinkles. Surprisingly, not many people know how to properly cleanse their face. This article will give you a few skin cleansing tips to keep your skin in the best condition possible. Read on to learn more.
Use a Gentle Cleanser
If you are the type of person that uses the same bar soap to wash both your face and body, you aren’t doing your skin any favors. A typical bar soap can dry your skin out and strip it of its natural oils— causing you to break out. A gentle facial cleanser, however, will properly cleanse your skin without causing any damage in the process.
Consider Using a Clarisonic
If you usually use just your hands or a washcloth to wash your face every night, consider taking it up a notch and using a Clarisonic. A Clarisonic is a handheld brush device that uses a pulsating mechanism to target the top few layers of your skin— leaving you with that squeaky clean skin that you have always wanted.
Use a Toner
After you wash your face, you may still have some dirt and makeup on it. To get your skin as clean as possible, use a toner after you wash your face. Simply apply a small amount of toner to a cotton ball and then rub it across your face focusing on your T-zone (forehead, chin, and nose).
Cleansing your skin both morning and night will keep your skin in the best shape possible. By using a gentle cleanser, a Clarisonic, and a toner, you can get your skin as clean as ever. To learn more about how you can cleanse your skin, contact Dr. Thomas F. Crais.
