(BPRW) Are You Washing Your Face Too Much?

(Black PR Wire) Failing to wash your face regularly — even if just a quick splash of water — can cause many skin problems. Every individual should wash their face both morning and night. Sweaty events may call for a third wash. If you can only commit to a wash once daily, do it before you go to bed. This will help remove grime and oil built up over the day and things like makeup.

How Often Should You Wash Your Face If You Have Dry or Sensitive Skin?

Washing the face twice a day may prove to be aggravating for sensitive or dry skin types. Cleanse correctly at night using a gentle formula and rinse with warm water in the morning. Hydrating cleansers are good choices for people with dry skin. Oil-based cleansers or ones with thicker consistencies should also be assessed.

How Often Should You Wash Your Face If You Have Oily or Acne-Prone Skin?

The longing to over-cleanse is expected in those with oily or acne-prone skin. There’s no need to wash your face more than twice a day. Doing so may dry out your skin. Opt for a cleanser containing hydroxy acids to remove excess oil if you fall into this category. Medicated cleansers are also worth your awareness.

How Often Should You Wash Your Face If You Have a Combination of Both?

Combo skin types are seen as the fortunate ones. In this circumstance, you can pick the cleansers you want. It’s still advisable to cleanse twice a day and use a soft formula that removes contaminants, deep cleans pores, helps clear makeup, and leaves the skin feeling refreshed, clean, and hydrated. Also, don’t overlook foaming cleansers. These can extract oil and aren’t too strenuous on dry patches.

How Often Should You Wash Your Face If You Wear Makeup?

Makeup can plug pores if not adequately removed, causing breakouts. Makeup wearers should cleanse their faces in the morning, followed by a more comprehensive cleanse at night. Either remove makeup before using a cleanser or double cleanse to assure all traces are gone. Use an oil-based cleanser for a hygienic, non-irritating feel.

How Often Should You Wash Your Face If You Exercise?

Any sweating movement requires an extra wash to remove said sweat and dirt.

Try oil-free wipes if you’re out and about and don’t have a cleanser on hand. They’re excellent for cleansing the skin and extracting sweat and dirt until you can shower and wash again.

What Should You Use to Cleanse Your Face?

If your skin has no unique requirements and you don’t wear makeup or routinely perspire, you may get away with a good, old-fashioned splash of water morning and night.

Just make it lukewarm — not boiling or freezing. Everyone should use a cleanser that helps exfoliate and withdraw impurities but won’t deprive the skin of natural oils. That especially applies to individuals with certain conditions like acne or dryness.

What you use is up to you. There are ointments, creams, gels, wipes, balms, etc. Avoid products including potentially irritating ingredients like fragrance or alcohol. In addition to experimenting with various products, you can try multiple ways to apply them. Using your hands is the easiest, but cloths and cleansing brushes are also options. You may even want to use two distinct methods: a gentler technique in the morning and a slightly more intense one at night.


Try to wash your face twice a day — but don’t forget to listen to your skin. Something isn’t right if it’s red, overly dry, or shows any other signs of irritation. In those circumstances, your best bet is to book an appointment with a dermatologist. Don’t underestimate skilled, personalized advice.
