How to Really Clean Your Face

How to Really Clean Your FaceKeeping your face clean is so important in order to keep your skin nice, healthy, and clean. It is detrimental that you have an everyday skincare routine that will be the best for your health. Is there really a proper way to clean your face? What products should you be using? Do you need tools? What exactly is the proper order in which you should perform your skincare regimen? All of this is what we are going to be talking about today.

According to experts, there is a proper skincare routine in which you should use certain products in a certain order to get the most benefits for your skin health. Let's start by talking about the kind of products that you should be including in your skin care routine. Products that will give your skin the most benefits include a good cleanser, toner, an eye cream, moisturizer, and possibly some sort of serum if you choose to use them. Now, in what order should you use these products? Let's talk about it.

1. Cleanser

You are going to want to start with a cleanser, using warm water you will want to wet your face and use your cleanser working it into your face in order to remove any makeup, oil, or debris that may be on your face from your day. I think that simply using your hands is good enough for this step but you can use a face brush if you prefer. Using warm water is important because this helps to open up your pores and get them all cleaned out with your cleanser.

2. Toner

Having a toner in your routine is so important. I would say this is the most important product aside from your cleanser. If you don't know what a toner is used for, it helps to bring your skin back to the proper pH after you cleanse your face. Skipping this step can cause an imbalance in your skin and this can lead to breakouts or skin issues.

3. Serum

Serums are an optional item in your skin care routine but they are beneficial if you have a certain problem area in your skin such as redness, skin discoloration, or even dark circles/wrinkles. Serums are great for focusing on certain areas and at this point of your routine is when you would want to apply these.

4. Moisturizer

Using a moisturizer is also very important because it replenishes your skin with the moisture that you just took out of your skin by using a cleanser. Cleansers can cause dryness so it is important to add that moisture back into your skin.

5. Eye Cream

Eye cream is another really important item that you should be using in your routine. A lot of people are under the impression that you don't need to use an eye cream until you are older but on the contrary, the earlier you start using eye creams the more benefits you will have in the future. Using eye creams while you are young will help to prevent eye problems and wrinkles, rather than having to go back and repair those issues later on in life.

Having a skin care regimen is very important. If you are having problem skin and you are unsure of why, maybe you are missing something in your routine that could really benefit you. You will want to make sure that you really take care of your skin and you will be forever thankful when you get older and your skin is still looking young and beautiful.

  31. Not to mention NEVER go to sleep with makeup on! I also like using a facial cleansing device. 🙂

  32. Will I sound crazy if I tell you that I don’t use neither cleansers nor toners nor serums? My skin is super dry. I usually just use a natural face wash I make myself and then apply some moisturising cream. That’s me done. I think I’m simply too lazy ;>>>> After this post you made me think… Perhaps I should try following your steps? Yeah. I think I’ll look into what products I could get.
