Face-Cleansing Hacks to Try Today

There are many skin care regimen and tips that can help improve that beautiful healthy skin you strive to achieve and maintain. Let’s look at some common face cleansing hacks that will get you some of those desired results.

Oil Cleansing Method

Skin, which is the largest organ in your body, needs oil to function properly. The skin produces oil naturally. The natural oils help to lubricate, protect, heal and moisturize the skin. Implementing a daily regimen to work along with your skin will give results of clear, glowing and softer skin.

Oils are the ideal antidote for dry skin, and oils should be an integral part of your skin care routine.

The basic idea of oil cleansing is to use natural oils to cleanse the skin and naturally balance the skin’s natural oils. The oil used to massage your skin dissolves the oil that has hardened with the impurities that are stuck in your pores. The steam from a hot cloth will open the pores and gives easy access for the removal of oil. If you want to lubricate your skin, you can apply the smallest amount of the same oil over damp skin.

Once you have massaged the oil into your skin, cover your face with a hot wash-cloth. Let it stay there till it cools. Your pores will open and release oil. Wipe the oil gently and rinse the wash-cloth in hot running water. Hold your washcloth to your face again and allow it to cool. Wipe off the impurities. Repeat this process two or three more times. Remember not scrub your face.

You can do this method in the evening before going to bed. This gentle method cleanses as well as balances the skin’s oil production.

Even if you haven’t become a pro at figuring out the best moisturizing techniques, here are a few basics that will be sure to let you get your routine down pat as a part of your facial skin care regimen.

  • APPLY IT TO DAMP SKIN

You can put your moisturizer on post-cleansing too.  After washing your face, don’t towel-dry. A great suggestion is to apply your moisturizer to damp skin, which can help lock in hydration.

  • TRY A WATER-BASED FORMULA

If you’re in the market for a new skin hydrator, why not take a water-based moisturizer a try? 

  • TRY ONE FORMULATED WITH BROAD SPECTRUM SPF

You shouldn’t go without a sunscreen or sun protection. This is very important because when you spend prolonged periods of time exposed in the sun without wearing protection, it can lead to damage, and that can result in visible signs of aging like dark spots and wrinkles down the road. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends wearing a broad-spectrum (meaning it protects against UVA and UVB rays) SPF of 15 or higher for everyday use or a broad-spectrum SPF of 30 or higher on days that you know you’ll be spending an extended amount of time out in the sun. 

  • EXFOLIATE REGULARLY

Exfoliation is the process of sloughing off dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. When you exfoliate, you can help your other skin care products, such as moisturizer, work better, since they won’t be sitting on top of that build-up anymore. And remember to be gentle when exfoliating your skin!
