How To Wash Your Face | Tips for Facial Cleansing From Experts

Most of us assume that cleansing your face is a task so basic it can be accomplished even when you’re completely exhausted or slightly tipsy—which, of course, it can. (All the snaps for you if you’ve successfully cleansed your skin before bed to avoid the terror that is waking up with last night’s mascara on.) But it turns out that there’s a lot more to washing your face than soap and water, says Dr. Doris Day, NYC dermatologist and author of Forget the Facelift. “With so many sophisticated, gentle cleansers that won’t strip the skin, using the right one allows moisturizing and anti-aging products to absorb more effectively.”

Clearly, an old-school splash and scrub won’t do. In order for your cleanser to truly do its thing, there’s a few guidelines that just can’t be compromised…and, in addition, myths floating around that need to be addressed.
