How to Wash Your Face – Tips for Summer Cleansing

The summer season brings hot weather and more outdoor activities. This also means, that you may experience excessive sweating, leading to oilier skin and breakouts. It is really important to not skimp on your facial care regimen or begin a new one.  Here are some tips for maintaining fab skin during the summer season.

Proper Prep
It may sound a little crazy but wash your hands before you wash your face. Your hands carry tons of germs just from daily activities. You don’t want any additional germs placed on your face. After washing your hands make sure you remove any makeup you may have on.

Choose the Proper Cleanser
The proper cleanser for your skin will ensure that your skin is protected.  Our Gentle Cleanser for Normal Skin or Clarifying Cleanser for Acne-Prone Skin are great choices.  Our Gentle Cleanser  is oil-free and  fragrance-free and cleanses your skin  without drying out or irritating skin. The Clarifying Cleanser for Acne-Prone Skin is a maximum-strength, soap-free, cleanser that fights blemishes removing the pore-clogging impurities that can often lead to breakouts.

The Wash
Make sure the water is just right. Hot water can dry out and strip healthy oils from your skin too quickly. You want to make sure that you use warm water when washing your face. When rinsing drop the temperature a bit with a cool water rinse. Using cool water helps to close pores after a good wash.

Drying skin
Make sure to use a clean towel. When drying your face you want to lightly pat skin dry. Rubbing skin may spread bacteria or cause irritation.  Allow a little dampness to remain on skin in order to help seal moisturizer.

There has been a  lot of debate about toner. Toner is great for your skin because it returns your skin’s pH balance back to its natural state, which is about 5.5 level of acidity. Our Exfoliating Toner for Normal-to-Oily Skin is alcohol-free, fragrance-free, and oil-free. Our Clarifying Toner for Acne- Prone Skin helps eliminate acne you already have and prevent new breakouts from occurring. Each of the toner formulas are designed not to dry out or irritate your skin.

Last but not least moisturize your skin. Our lightweight oil-free Essential Hydration moisturizing cream is a great way to hydrate your beautiful skin.  Packed with Shea and Cocoa butters this cream replenishes dry skin with Vitamins A, E, and F.  For our Brown Skinned Beauties with acne prone skin the Clear Luminosity Hydrating Acne Lotion is ideal for daily use to treat acne breakouts without drying skin.
It’s summer time so you may find yourself washing your face more than your normal 2 times a day. But with this cleansing routine you will be sure to have radiant and vibrant skin each time.
