Ahh, cleansing your face. You know the drill. You stand over the bathroom sink or in the shower. You reach for your cleanser, wipes, washcloth, or soap. You wash your face and hope your skin gets and that whatever you’re using to wash your face doesn’t dry out your skin. If you find your skin drying out or having a negative reaction when you wash your face, we have a few tips that can help.
Don’t wash your face in the morning.
If you regularly wash your face in the morning, you may be washing away your skin’s own natural moisturizer. You may have noticed that your face feels soft and moisturized when you wake up in the morning. That softness is your body’s own natural moisturizer. It’s there because at night, while you’re sleeping, your body has the ability to produce a protective layer over your skin. It’s a natural moisturizer that’s customized for your skin type. And yet, most of us wash it off when we get out of bed in the morning. Here’s what we suggest you do instead:
When you get up in the morning, skip washing your face with cleanser or soap. Instead, only splash water on your face. That way, your skin can use your natural moisturizer throughout the day to maintain its softness.
Do wash your face at night before you go to bed.
Choose a cleanser that removes makeup and dirt but also conditions your skin.
Here’s what we suggest: Rather than using soap or wipes, choose a gentle facial cleanser that’s safe to use every day. Specifically, look for a daily cleanser that both washes your face, and softens and conditions your skin at the same time.
Our facial milk cleanser from our White Truffle Line is designed to do just that. The formula features white truffle and other rich ingredients, which are ideal for removing dirt without stripping your skin of its moisture. It’s gentle enough to use daily to remove your makeup or to wash your face before bed. To try it yourself, start by splashing water on your face. Pump a small amount of Milk Cleanser into your hand, and massage it into your face with your fingertips. Rinse off all the cleanser thoroughly when you’re done. Our cleanser is designed to be used on the most sensitive skin.
Don’t forget to moisturize when you’re done.
No matter what cleanser you use, the important 3rd step in keeping your skin beautifully hydrated, even while you’re removing makeup and other impurities from your skin is to apply a moisturizer when you’re finished washing your face. We suggest a gentle, hydrating formula like our white Truffle Night Cream formulated with luxurious white truffle extract and shea butter designed to help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles leaving a youthful glow. Apply to your face and neck, massaging gently in circular motions until absorbed
