Face cleaning may seem simple to you, but there’s more to face cleansing than rubbing your face with soap and water. Your facial skin is different from skin on rest of your body, so you need to clean it differently. It’s also the skin that everyone observes the most, thus you ought to take good care of it!
The secret to keep your facial skin healthy, glowing and young is to keep it clean, toned, and hydrated before you put on makeup or get into bed. It may sound to you hard, but we’re here to make it easy for you.

Step 1: Use lukewarm water and a cream cleanser to wash your face. Lukewarm water helps dislodge the dirt from your skin. Avoid hot water as it can be too drying. Cream cleansers are more hydrating. In case you wear a lot of makeup, you may perhaps like to use a gel cleanser and/or a makeup remover instead. After washing, pat your facial skin with a dry, clean towel. Don’t scrub as otherwise it will stretch your skin resulting into wrinkles.
Step 2: Take a cotton ball or facial pad, dip it in toner and wipe your face in gentle circular motions. Make sure to avoid eye area. While wiping your face, focus on problem areas such as if you have oily t-zone (forehead, nose and chin). You don’t need to do it a lot, only one time soaked cotton ball is enough.
Natural Beauty Tip: Many dermatologists recommend to avoid using an alcohol based toner as it’s too drying even for oily skin.
Step 3: Serum works like a green juice for your skin. There are some upper-class high-end ones, but you don’t need to spend too much on it – L’Oreal has a very good line of serums that you can buy at your local drugstore. Use just a little for your entire face. You can use serum also to address any specific problem you have with your skin, because they make serums for everything these days such as anti-aging, moisturizing, redness, etc.
Step 4: If you like, mix your serum in with your moisturizer. This will help you to prune one step. For night, choose a heavier moisturizer, but for day, be sure to go for one with SPF that will save you from applying sunscreen on your own.
Step 5: Final step – Don’t neglect the under eye area. It’s the thinnest part of your skin, so hungry for moisture. You need to massage very gently or simply pat a pea-sized amount of eye cream under the eyes – about half an inch under the brow bone. If you want to put on makeup afterwards, wait a few minutes so as the cream gets sink in.
