When you’re faced with daily tasks as simple as洗你的脸, sometimes you start to slack. However, proper cleansing is anything but basic. Despite the amount of energy we devote to perfecting our skincare regimens, when it comes to the very first step, we don’t often give the same amount of care.
To correct that tendency, we’ve outlined exactly how to wash your face by drawing up the 10 commandments of cleansing your skin correctly. Starting with taking off the day and finishing off with exactly when to apply serums and moisturizers onto your freshly-washed visage, these straightforward face-washing steps guarantee to get you on your way to clearer, healthier skin. Keep reading to study up on the commandments and shop some of our favorite cleansing products to incorporate into a脸部洗脸.
Now raise your right hand, and repeat after us…
#1: Thou Shalt Wash Thy Hands First
If you were to wipe down a surface with a dirty rag, would you really be cleaning it? No. Similarly, when you wash your face with unclean hands, you’re pushing that dirt around on your face. Wash your hands first.
#3: Thou Shalt Use Lukewarm Water
使用热水可能会感觉很好，但没有任何帮助。热水正在脱水 - 它的皮肤健康，天然油脂的速度太快。温暖的水足够温暖，可以帮助松开污垢和皮脂，而无需剥离皮肤。
The benefits of双重清洁are plentiful—smoother skin, a more thorough clean, better product absorption. Pollution, makeup, and some sunscreens just can’t be removed with one cleanse. Use a gentle cleansing milk or oil first to remove all of the grime that sits on top of your skin, and use a cleanser that suits your skin type to finish the job.
#5: Thou Shalt Not Use Any Cleanser With Sulfates
你知道avoid sulfates in your shampoo，但是您知道清洁剂中可能有硫酸盐吗？如果您在成分清单上看到硫酸钠，硫酸铵，硫酸钠或硫酸铵的硫酸钠或laureth硫酸铵，则将其放下洗脸。硫酸盐是用来从皮肤上切油的表面活性剂，但它们比您需要的要强，最终会使您的皮肤脱水。还有禁止的？条皂。将肥皂固定在一起的结合成分具有天然高的pH值，对于您的纤细皮肤来说太强了。
You need to give your cleanser time to work. And technique matters too. Rather than scrubbing vigorously for 20 seconds, spend a full minute gently massaging your face in circular motions. This stimulates your lymphatic system, which encourages oxygen and blood circulation.
#7: Thou Shalt Not Neglect Thy Neck
In case you haven’t heard it lately, your neck needs love too. It’s one of the spots that show signs of aging first, mainly because it’s not a top priority in your skincare regimen. But your neck should be included in every step of your routine, starting with cleansing.
Make sure your face wash reaches all the way up to your hairline (another commonly neglected spot), or you could start to see breakouts forming there.
Because the skin on your face is so delicate, take extra care to pat it dry with a soft towel. And it doesn’t need to be bone-dry when you’re done. It’s okay to leave a thin layer of moisture on your skin since the products you apply next will seal that in. It’s not okay, however, to grab any old towel you can find. Towels you use to dry your hair and body could have pore-clogging residue from your shower products on them. Make it a habit to use a fresh towel each day and you’ll avoid problem-causing germs and bacteria.
