Cleansing is the first and most important step in any skincare routine. While it seems like the easiest thing to do with no special skills required, did you know, each skin type needs to be treated and washed differently? But fret not, we’re going to teach you how to wash your face the right way depending on your skin type. Take a look…
 

Oily skin

Apart from cleansing your face twice a day, you should also wash your face before and after physical activities such as workouts, dance, etc. When you work out, the pores on your skin expand, inviting dirt and grime to penetrate into the skin. Thus, it’s important to make cleansing an important part of your skincare routine. Start by wiping your face with the Ponds Vitamin Micellar Water D - Toxx Charcoal and follow it up with deep cleansing face wash such as the Ponds Pure White Anti Pollution + Purity with Activated Charcoal Face Wash. Take a small amount in your palms and apply on wet face in circular motions for a minute, concentrating on the t-zone. Wash off with lukewarm water.

 

Dry skin

Dry skin comes with its own set of problems. But if there’s one rule you should follow when it comes to washing your face, it’s — don’t do it too often. Stick to washing your face only twice a day with a gentle, moisture-retaining cleanser such as the Dove Beauty Moisture Conditioning Facial Cleanser. Take a small amount of the product on your palm and apply it on your face. Wash off after 30 seconds with lukewarm water.

 

Sensitive skin

Those with sensitive skin type should steer clear of any cleanser that contains harsh ingredients. Choose one formulated for sensitive skin type such as the Simple Kind To Skin Moisturising Facial Wash. It is free from artificial fragrances and colour, making it the perfect cleanser for sensitive skin. Squeeze a small amount into your palms and work into a lather, massage gently onto wet skin and rinse with warm water.

Those with normal and combination skin type should wash their face twice a day and massage for a minute, concentrating on the t-zone.
