Top 4 facts about face washing and face washes

In the market of face care products, a lot of new products have emerged. From sheet masks and serums to hydration and eye creams, it can be daunting to try and figure out which items you need to be using and which types are actually going to make a difference. Even when it comes to selecting the best face wash, the most basic product, a variety of forms to choose from including gel cleanser, foaming face wash, or even a clay cleanser, has come up. There is no surprise in the fact that anyone can become puzzled by the sheer number of choices and that is even before realizing how your skin type should influence your choice. Fortunately, this blog is here to talk about face cleaning and the goodness of natural face wash. So, if you are wondering which type of face cleanser is ideal, and how face washes should be used, read below!

Ideal way of face washing

  • Use lukewarm or water at normal temperature

Risen temperatures of water when washing the face can cause damage to the skin and can potentially cause burns and redness. Instead, wash with normal or lukewarm water. Be sure to rinse thoroughly.

  •  Use face washes

Fancy bar soaps for the body can make you feel rejuvenated and dirt-free, but they are not formulated for delicate skin. They are ideal for the body and if they are used on the face, the harsh chemical formula can strip the skin off its natural oils, leaving it tight, dry, and dehydrated. The skin of the body is stronger than the fragile skin of the face—thicker and more resilient and can, therefore, upkeep with soaps. Our facial skin, on the flip side, requires a gentler cleanser that is specifically formulated for the face.

  • Wash your face at least twice a day

The basic rule of having healthy skin is cleansing it twice a day, morning and night. Once a day may accumulate sebum and clog pores and anything more than twice a day is washing off natural oils, deteriorating the protective moisture barrier. Makeup wearers especially need to use makeup remover and post cleanse with a face wash at night.

  • Use circular motions while cleansing

It is best to massage face washing gel in circular motions, as this pattern will remove creams, makeup, dirt, oil, and lotions with more efficacy.

How to determine your skin type?

Bare-Faced Method – Wash your face with a face wash and running water and then pat dry. Then, as the name suggests, leave your skin bare for approximately 30 minutes. Make sure you DO NOT apply anything. After 30 minutes pass, give a close look in the mirror to your cheeks, chin, nose, and forehead for any shininess or oil. Repeat this process one more time, waiting 30 minutes and then examining your face again.

If the skin of your face is still oily and lustrous after the combined 60 minutes, you likely have oily skin. However, if your face feels tight or dry, especially when you smile, you most likely have dry skin. Moreover, if there is minimal shine on your nose, forehead, or other limited areas of your face, you probably have normal skin. Oily patches on some areas of your face may mean that you have combination skin. Although this method consumes time, effort and careful examination, you will be able to identify your skin’s texture in its natural state.

Blotting Sheet Method – If you don’t have ample time at your disposal, or just don’t have the patience to wait around, you can gently pat a blotting sheet on the different areas of your face. Examine the paper each time by holding it up to a light. If the sheet shown absorbed oil regardless of where it was blotted, you presumably have oily skin. Minute or no presence of oil on the sheet could mean you have dry skin. While picking up some oil in certain areas may mean you have normal or combination skin.

When you will be clear about what skin type you have, you will be better equipped to select the right skin products. Whether it is a gel cleanser or foaming face wash, the goal is to cleanse the face making sure nourishment gets penetrated in the skin as well. Focus on your skin to determine the appropriate products and best regimen for your skin. If you can’t make these decisions for yourself, reach out to an expert or dermatologist.
