Many of you cleanse your face regularly right? That better be answered as a yes and not a no! You think you may be washing your face properly…but are you? It is very important to read these steps to see if you are following proper skin-cleansing procedures!

1. If you have long hair, pull your hair off your face and use a headband to hold stray hairs back.

2. Wash your hands with warm water and with a non-toxic hand soap [Young Living and Dr. Bronner’s both carry great ones!] to remove all dirt and germs from your hands.

3. Make sure your running water is at a luke warm temperature, not too hot to burn or irritate your skin and not too cold that it can’t remove the dirt and bacteria on your skin.

4. Gently dampen your face and neck, and use a dime size amount of a gentle non-toxic cleanser, working the product into your skin in a circular motion with your fingertips. Some of my favorite cleansers are from Young Living: the charcoal bar soap, the bloom cleanser, and the satin facial mint scrub.

5. Make sure you cleanse your neck as well. Such an overlooked area of the body but very important to tend to.

6. After cleansing your face and neck for 1-2 minutes, rinse the cleanser off with warm water.

7. Turn water to freezing cold and splash a few times on your face and neck, shocking the skin and freezing the pores shut after they have been opened and cleared with warm water. The cold water will help prevent bacteria from entering the skin from having been enlarged.

8. Gently pat face dry with a clean, soft hand towel.

9. Hydrate your skin with an oil-free moisturizer [wild about my DIY glowing face serum] and follow with up with eye cream. My favorite is the wolfberry eye cream from Young Living. It’s non-toxic too and super concentrated so a little bit goes a very long way.

10. If you’re on a topical medication with acne, apply at this time.

11. Cleanse and moisturize your face and neck EVERY morning and night. Don’t be lazy!

12. If you cleanse your face in the shower, do so after shampooing and conditioning since these products can clog the pores.

Follow these steps to have the cleanest, freshest skin possible!  Skipping one of these steps can cause acne to form on your skin or worsen. So start following our steps to washing your face and see how your skin heals! Happy face cleansing!

    Baking soda is great for pimples: mix it with warm water until it forms a paste than apply it to the your skin. Leave it on for only 10 to 15 minutes the first few times . You can gradually increase the time up to an hour or even leave it on overnight . You can see the results within two weeks.
