Taking Better Care Of Your Skin

Four Tips To Affordably Cleanse Your Face The Dermatologist Way

Cleansing your face every morning and night is the best way to keep it clear, however, not many people know how to go about the right way to cleanse their face. This leads to people facing many problems, such as breakouts, irritated skin, and more. Changes are difficult to make though since many people are fearful this means that they have to spend a ton of money on facial cleansing products. That's not the case, though and many dermatologists are aware of this. That's why there are many methods available that are affordable; you just need to consider these four tips for affordable facial cleansing:

  1. Don't Use Bar Soap: One way people try to go cheap is by just using the simple bar soap that they use on the rest of the body. The problem with this is that it dries out the natural oils on the face that are actually beneficial to maintaining healthy, clear, and glowing skin. The skin on the body can handle this better, but the skin on the face is much more delicate and sensitive. 
  2. Use Gentle Cleaners: Since the skin on the face is so delicate, you need to use gentle cleaners, such as a foaming cleanser. You must avoid cleansers that have those microbeads in them. While it seems like it is cleansing your face well, it's actually leaving little scratches that can cause wrinkles and irritate the skin. Gentle cleansers do the job as they clean the skin, remove dirt, and makeup and all without stripping the face of its natural oils. 
  3. Don't Use Hot Water: To get the most effective clean from your gentle cleanser, you don't want to use hot water. This is going to take away those natural oils that your facial skin desperately needs. If you are using hot water, you will notice more skin problems that could lead to you feeling the need to invest in more products that you actually don't need. 
  4. Use Your Cleanser Once a Day: Instead of using your cleanser multiple times per day, you should only be using it once per day. Otherwise, it can dry out the skin and irritate it. Ideally, using the cleanser at night only is all that is needed with just a simple rinse of the face in the morning. 

With these four tips in mind, you are going to save a significant amount of money on keeping your face clean, clear, and healthy. Contact a dermatology office for more information and assistance.
