Washing your face is the most important step for cleaning it from dirt and dust. However, sometimes we do some mistakes in washing our faces that may cause many problems to our skin without being aware of that. Here we will tackle some of these mistakes to help you avoid them.
1. Washing the face with dirty hands:
Many people start washing their faces without washing their hands first, but you should stop doing this if you want to get healthy skin free from skin defects.
When you wash your face and your hands are not clean, your hands transfer the dirt to your face, and this causes serious complications. So, you must ensure that your hands are clean before washing your face.
2. Rubbing the face with the towel:
Many of us rub our face violently with a towel after washing, but continued friction with the towel could deprive the skin of natural oils which leads to irritation and dryness. Moreover, the constant friction and pulling of the skin can lead to sagging. Instead of that, you should use a soft towel or let your face dry by itself.
3. Using a dirty towel:
you always have to use a very clean towel for your face, as the wet towel can become dirty quickly and using it again can restore dirt back into your skin, which in turn can lead to problems such as acne, blackheads and pimples.
Wash the towel every day after using it and dry it well in the sun. Also, don’t keep the towel in your bathroom and you keep it in a clean, dry place. Moreover, do not share your own towel with others.
