How Often Should You Wash Your Face?

Washing your face is a fundamental part of your daily skincare routine. While over-cleansing can be damaging, skipping washing your face can lead to a multitude of skincare problems; From clogged pores to acne, excessive oil, puffy skin and even an increase in fine lines and wrinkles. 

So, how often should you wash your face? Most of us need to wash our face twice a day, in the morning and at night, to maintain a clear complexion. It is crucial to understand that your lifestyle will also determine the frequency. 

Below is a general guideline for when and how to wash your face each day.


Wash Your Face First Thing In The Morning

During your morning shower, you want to wash your face with a gentle cleanser that will remove any pore-clogging oil that accumulated while you were sleeping. Follow up with a daily SPF moisturiser.


Wash Your Face Before You Go To Bed

Before you go to bed each night, you must wash your face once more, even if you are tired and had a late night. If you go to bed without washing off your make-up, you will see the negative ramifications as soon as you awake.

Even if you don't wear make-up, you must wash away oil, dirt, and grime that find their way to the sensitive skin on your face during the day. Follow up with a PM moisturise.


After You Workout

If you work out first thing in the morning, you can wait to wash your face until after you work out. However, if you work out mid-day, you should wash your face post-workout. 

If your skin is extremely delicate, you may want to wash your face before you work out, so that your make-up does not clog your pores as you sweat. Wash away the sweat again after working out. Follow up with the appropriate moisturiser.


Your Cleanser Must Be Designed For Your Face

The skin on your face is delicate, and far more sensitive than the rest of your body. While most body soaps are not suitable to be used from head-to-toe, our Natural French Soaps are as gentle as they come, nature made, without harmful chemicals, and kind enough to wash your face while removing your make-up.

Not only are our soaps gentle enough for the delicate skin on your face, but their naturally derived ingredients allow you to select a soap that will address your specific beauty needs.
