A product like a multi facial cleanser should be straightforward. However, there are many ways that people commonly misuse their face cleanser and never realize the damage that they are doing to their skin. Before you wash your face tonight, look at these common mistakes that you are probably making when you wash with multi-facial cleanser.
Using Multi-Facial Cleanser as Makeup Remover
You know how detrimental it is to your skin if you go to bed with a full face of makeup. At the very least, you should be using a makeup wipe to remove the products from the surface of your skin. Ideally, you would use a makeup remover and a multi-facial cleanser. Remember that most of your cosmetics are specifically formulated to be waterproof so that they do not come off in the rain, when you sweat, or when you cry. Using water and cleanser will not remove all the product, leaving you with residue and clogged pores.
Skipping the Morning Wash
If you wash your face at night, you may think that you are waking up with fresh, clean skin. After all, you haven’t been anywhere except your bed, right? What many people fail to realize is that your skin is picking up germs and oils all through the night from surfaces like your sheets and pillowcases. Even if you use fresh bedding every night, oils from your hair are likely transferring to your skin as you sleep. It is a good idea to start the day with a quick rinse before the rest of your morning skincare routine.
Failing to Moisturize
If you are using the right multi-facial cleanser, it probably has moisturizing ingredients in the formula. However, it cannot take the place of a moisturizing product. When you wash your face with water, the drying process naturally makes your skin begin to dry out as well. This is why it is recommended to apply a moisturizer within one minute of finishing up with your face wash. It will trap in the hydration from your cleanser and leave your skin moisturized.
You should be using your multi-facial cleanser twice a day, both in the morning and at night. Make sure you also remove makeup separately and properly moisturize your skin after washing. Failure to take these steps will undo the work you are doing to improve your skin each day. For more information about the Genovo Skincare cleanser, please click here.
