I know that most guys were never taught how to have a proper skin care routine. Most of us don’t even know what a skin care routine is and why we need it. So today I am teaching you how to properly wash your face because this is step one on achieving clear skin fast. You want to wash your face twice a day once in the morning and once in the evening. If you wash your face too often it could create an imbalance in the surface of the skin. Make it easier for bacteria to enter your pores. Your skin it’s going to irritate your skin make it red. That’s not what we want keep in mind that if you workout and sweat a lot. Then yes it’s okay to wash it again just to get that sweat out that dirt out or if your face gets dirty for some reason. Yes of course you can and should wash it right then and there but try to stick to twice a day.
Don’t even think about using a bar of soap to wash, your face generic soap is going to dry out your skin. It almost has the opposite effect of what we’re trying to do here. So definitely stay away from it instead use proper face wash whether it’s in gel, foam or some type of pasty substance those are usually fine. It would just strip away the dirt without taking away all the natural oils. That you actually want to keep in there also don’t skimp out. Alright guys apply a generous amount to make sure that there’s enough product to wash your whole face and your net.
Don’t use the palm of your hands use your fingers lightly to massage your face. You can use one of these brushes, here I wouldn’t recommend using them every single day. Just use them maybe two to three times a week. Because they can be harsh sometimes to your sensitive skin. I know that we’re guys and sometimes it can be a little bit aggressive right. Especially when it comes to just getting things done but, let’s say skin is sensitive whether you’re a guy or a girl just take it easy. There’s no need to go super hard and be super aggressive on your face. by the way
Take your time washing your face I know that sometimes we’re rushing in the morning because we got to go or whatever. But when you rush you usually just rub your face really hard, that’s not what we’re trying to do here. Once you’re done lightly massaging your whole face and neck, then it’s time to wash it off. Make sure that you get rid of all of that cleanser leftover, cleanser equals leftover dirt and oil and that causes pimples. Everyone hates pimples because they always come at the wrong time. It’s always on the day when you have like a date or you’re going to prom or it’s a job interview or maybe it’s the first day of school. It always sucks.
Use Lukewarm Water
When you’re washing off all of that cleanser, you want to make sure that you’re using lukewarm water. Alright you don’t want to go too hot because that is going to dry out and damage your skin. If you go to cold it’s not going to open up your pores, it’s actually going to close them you won’t be able to clean them. Lukewarm water is perfect once or twice a week. You should also exfoliate your skin, exfoliating products are a little different from face wash. You can definitely feel they’re a little bit harsher. It sounds painful but it’s not as long as you’re using your fingers. Not rubbing too hard it’s fine it works really well because this will get rid of dead skin cells. Reveal brand-new smooth clear skin which is what we’re after, so after you wash your face.
That’s when you exfoliate alright and no more than twice a week. The reason for that is because you don’t want to be ripping off your skin cells every day of the week. That is not good for you that’s a little bit too harsh. Some dermatologists even say that once a week is plenty. So what I would suggest that everyone’s skin is different, so start out with once a week exfoliating once a week. After you wash your face and then if everything is going well. Go for twice a week and if that’s too much then, go back to once. That’s how it goes you just figure out what works best for your body type. If you have facial hair then I would recommend using a beard scrub in that area so you can clean your beard. Don’t forget you know there’s skin under there too. So the beard scrub will actually exfoliate the skin underneath.
Well all right so now you’re done washing your face and possibly exfoliating as well. What comes next is just as important. It’s very common for us guys to be like alright my face is clean, I’m the man, I’m just gonna grab this towel over here and viciously scrub my face with it. That’s not how we code like I said guys, skin is delicate whether you’re a guy you’re a girl. It doesn’t matter it’s all the same. So don’t be aggressive pat dry every girl knows this because they’ve been doing this forever right. No one told us how to do anything like heavy a separate towel just for your face, did you know that because I used the same towel for everything up. Until very recently, right I would just rub my whole body and then just rub my face with it after. Now that I’m thinking that’s gross. So what I would recommend is a small face towel that is yours, only your’s keep it in the bathroom, somewhere don’t let anyone else use it. Don’t use it on other parts of your body just your beautiful face wash the towel every week. So just to make sure that you’re not rubbing dirt into your skin right after you washed your face.
