Cleaning is essential in maintaining beautiful and healthy skin. And since we always want to put our "best face forward," here are several tips that we compiled on how to properly wash your face. Remove every trace of make-up/cosmetics on your face. Use cotton balls and moisturizing cream to avoid damaging your skin.

Use lukewarm water. Avoid using too hot and too cold water that can dry out your skin. This will also open the pores for deeper cleansing. Avoid strong or harsh soaps/ cleansers. Strong soaps can dry your skin and strip off natural lipids. You can use benton honest cleansing foam which is not harsh for your skin.

Choose soap that is mild if you prefer soap, or you can always choose cleansers that are soap-free, non- comedogenic, and mild. Massage your face by gently rotating upwards your middle ring and pinky fingers. Remember that hard rubbing will actually do more harm than good.

Rinse face well to remove all residue of soap or cleanser. Residues left behind can actually clog your pores. Facial cleansers can leave an invisible residue behind which can clog your pores. Rinse three times, then rinse again. Pat dry with a soft, non- abrasive towel. Never ever rub your face.
