Using a gentle, non-toxic face wash, wash your face morning and night (and after bouts of excess sweating) to ensure that skin and pores are free bacteria. Skipping a face washing session can increase pore size, make skin oilier, and even cause/exasperate acne.
With all the emphasis on washing our hands and not touching our faces, let’s talk about the importance of washing your face.
We should all wash our face at least twice a day. More if you’re sweating and working out. Washing your face removes the dirt and oils (and yes, bacteria) that accumulate and make your pores larger.
To start your day with a clean canvas, wash your face in the morning. Our faces excrete oils at night and even the cleanest pillows still have a little dirt.
At night, we need to remove makeup and grime from the day. Again, you’ll want a clean canvas to apply nighttime products so they can work their magic.
