Do you wash your face? If not, you should. This may seem like a weird statement because there’s no way I can know if you do or don’t. However, I’m willing to bet that the answer is ‘no’. Before we get into why that is such an issue, let’s talk about what washing your face does for you. First of all your skin needs water to stay healthy and hydrated. Your skin has natural oils on it just as hair does, but those oils are removed when using soap. When the oil is taken away dirt gets in places it shouldn’t be which can cause acne.
But wait! You have oily skin so taking the oil away will help with that problem right? WRONG! Not all oils are bad and the oil your skin naturally produces is good for it. It keeps it smooth and prevents wrinkles. Therefore, when you remove it, your skin will try to produce more because that’s what it needs. Eventually, though, without cleansing properly this oil starts to build up and can lead to acne and yes even wrinkles. So then why would anyone want that?
If you were just going out for a few hours or maybe just hanging out with friends at home doing nothing special, there might not be a need to wash your face. But if you’re planning on leaving the house for any reason other than heading to work (if you have one) or school (if you go), washing your face should be one of the first things on your list.
Take a look at some of these tips and tricks:
Wash your face every morning when you get up and every night before you go to sleep, if possible.
If not, try to do it once in the middle of the day or at least before you head out for an extended period. If you don’t have access to water like when camping, put some rubbing alcohol on your face (don’t worry – it won’t hurt you) and wipe it off with a rag or paper towel. You’ll feel refreshed without having to shower which saves time and energy.
2. Don’t go straight for aggressive washing.
That will strip away all your natural oils because you think they’re bad for your skin. Start with warm water which dries up your skin so much. Go for a cleansing agent like Cetaphil which is designed to remove dirt, oil and makeup without drying out your skin too much.
3. Don’t forget about the rest of your body!
If you wash your face, don’t forget to wash the rest of you as well! Make sure everything’s clean before going out into public.
If you’re still not convinced that washing your face will help with acne, think about this: Some people have jobs where they can go days without taking a shower so their hair is greasy and dirty, but if their face isn’t washed it’s full of dirt and dust particles which could cause more acne. So change up your schedule so you can follow these tips and tricks.
Always remember it’s better to be safe than sorry when it comes to washing your face! Nobody acne whether they have oily or dry skin. If you’re not washing correctly, it can lead to acne, wrinkles, and other problems that are not worth the risk.
Nothing is stopping you from washing your face right now.
Wash your face with warm water at night before bed and in the morning when you get up. These steps are easy to do, but they make a big difference. Try it out! If you don’t like it or notice any problems after doing so, go back to how you were doing things before. But if everything is fine, there’s no reason not to keep it up! Your skin deserves the best care just as much as anything else in your body does. Keep in mind that even though some things might be hard work, their rewards are worth the effort in the end! That being said, have fun getting beautiful!
