5 Common Mistakes Made While Washing Your Face
While there is no right or wrong way to wash your face, there are several mistakes one can make while washing one's face. Read on to know more about these face washing mistakes in order to avoid them.
Most people often forget to wash their hands before they wash their face. Skipping the hand wash will cause the dirt and bacteria from the hands to transfer onto your face, thereby causing more harm to your face.
Using the wrong face wash
Whether its dry skin, oily skin or a combination skin type, you will need a special face wash that caters to your face type. Using the wrong face wash will leave your face feeling uncomfortable.
You don’t have to wash your face until it feels squeaky clean. Too much washing can cause your skin to feel irritated and dry as it washes out the natural oils from your face.
Use only lukewarm water
Many people believe that washing your face first with hot water and then cold water will help open up your pores. But the truth is that if the water is too hot, it can cause your skin to dry out while water that is too cold, can break up capillaries. So, stick to lukewarm water while washing your face.
