How To Wash Your Face To Prevent Acne

Introduction And Background

Acne has many causes but we sometimes overlook the hidden ones which can be the main causative factor at times. We are more concerned with treating our skin with various products and using everything in sight to ensure that we do not get germs on the face so that we can prevent acne. Actually, the what is not that important as the how. Of course, to a certain level a good product is always more beneficial to the skin than a bad one but it is essential that you know how to use it.

Know The Techniques
You have to know exactly how to wash your face and you have to know how to apply the face wash or the soap. Its importance we’ll discuss further on but for now you have to keep these points in your mind. Next time you wash your face, make sure this is how you do it.

  • Never apply soap or face wash on dry skin. It will only irritate your skin and will not make a proper lather. At times, the dirt often sticks to the soap and then gets embedded in the skin because of it. This can easily cause acne. Remember to rinse the face before applying anything.
  • Once you have soaked the face and applied the face wash or soap, lather it gently. Try to form circles on the cheek and the forehead. Remember to be very gentle because your skin deserves this kind of care. Do not be rough at all because for that time being it won’t bother you but for the long term it can damage and roughen the skin considerably.
  • Do not let the soap stay on for long because it will irritate and aggravate your skin. Wash it away as soon as you can and gently over that. Slide your hands down the face with the water droplets so that the soap has come off properly. Do not be afraid to wash your face with water again and again. It will only refresh the skin, nothing else. At least pour water on your face three to four times. We generally do it only twice and think it is enough but the more you do it, the cleaner your pores gets. Remember that the next time you decide to let it go after only pouring water on your face once or twice!
  • Do not dry your face immediately after washing. Wait a little. And most importantly, ensure that the towel or cloth or even the tissue you are drying your face with is clean. Otherwise, there really will be no point in washing the face if you’re going to put germs all over it again in a matter of minutes.

All these instructions are vital in preventing acne. You will be surprised to know how many people get acne because of the way they wash their face. Some people get acne because they did not clean up properly and the left over soap aggravated their skin. Some get acne because they were rough and tough with their skin, not really bothering to take good time to wash their face properly. And the rest get acne because of the dirty and used towels they utilize to dry their face. Well, this will all teach you a lesson into doing the above mentioned things. The key concept behind everything is to be gentle with the skin and to taking time for washing the face.

Why Is It Important To Know How To Wash The Face?
We are not at all gentle with our skin. At times we even forget that our skin can be damaged badly. It is only when we face the damage and finally get acne do we understand what to do and how to do it. Hopefully, by reading this article, you will prevent all that from happening so that there is no need for any sort of damage control. This is the importance that lies behind.

It is essential that you know how to wash your face properly, as written above. And keep one thing in mind; take your time while washing your face. Do not hurry it up. The more time you take, the more care your face skin will get. Do the math?
