How to Wash Your Face the Right Way

We all know we should be washing your face well and often, but have you been doing it wrong this whole time? Here are some tips on how to wash your face properly:

Use lukewarm water: Using water that is too hot or too cold can break capillaries on your face, leaving your face red and the capillaries permanently broken over time.

Choose a cleanser that is appropriate for your skin type: Using your fingertips, gently massage the cleanser onto the face using upward circular motions. Massaging ensures that dirt is removed and also stimulates circulation. Continue massaging onto the skin for 30 seconds to one minute, focusing on the oiliest areas: The T-zone and sides of the nose. Finally, rinse the face with cold water to close pores.

There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to skincare. Look for a cleanser that is formulated with ingredients that will help your skin type. 

Do a double cleanse, twice a day: The first cleanse will remove surface impurities, the second will get deeper into the pores.

Always follow with a toner: Washing your face can sometimes be harsh on your skin, but using a toner will balance your skin’s pH levels back to normal, allowing the rest of your regimen to work more effectively and help prevent breakouts. Skin that is unbalanced will always create excess oil or dryness to try to make up for the level upset.

Try using Love Line Platinum - Alcohol Free Toner to soothe skin and enhance the absorption of daily care and repair products.

Don’t rush: Especially on areas with folds, wrinkles, creases (like the sides of the nose). Take the time to work in the product and give a good rinse to make sure you are cleansing the whole face and not missing these harder-to-clean areas. When you have thoroughly cleansed and rinsed, pat dry with a towel.
