One of the simplest ablutions in the world is when we get up is to wash our face. But did you know that it’s not all that simple? Here are some fascinating facts about washing your face.
Step away from the bar soap:
It’s an absolute no-no. This type of soap is only meant for the body, and not for the face. It’s very dehydrating.
It’s tempting to scrub vigorously when you first wake up, but it’s not good at all for your facial skin. Instead, gentle circular motions are the best for your skin.
Choose the right face wash:
This is important. The wrong type of cleanser is disastrous for your face. Hence, it is important to know what your skin type is and use the appropriate cleanser for your face.
Right water temperature:
The best temperature for your face is lukewarm. Extreme hot and cold water is not recommended.
Again, like the right kind of facial wash, similarly invest in a good moisturiser that is suited to your skin type.
