Wash your face at the sink
Many dermatologists advise washing your face once you’re out of the shower. Why? Using slightly different water temperatures can be beneficial. Start by working cleansing product into the skin with warm water – this will open the pores and penetrate the skin. Once you’ve massaged your cleanser into the skin, remove it with cold water to close the pores and stop bacteria from entering.
Exfoliate gently once or twice a week
A gentle exfoliation removes dead skin cells from the surface of the skin and allows the newer skin beneath to show. This makes the skin feel smoother and appear brighter and glowing. You can do this in the shower with a gentle exfoliating shower gel or scrub. If you also like to use an exfoliating mitt, be sure to not overdo it as over scrubbing will leave the skin irritated and stripped of essential oils. Once or twice a week will suffice and leave your skin feeling hydrated and radiant.
