How to get the most out of your face wash

Hello my lovelies!

For the last 5-6 years, I've been faithfully cleansing my face morning and night. No early morning grumpiness -or even a late night booze dizziness!- have made me deviate from my skincare routine. Nice habit, you would say. It's true- but today I realised I've been doing it all wrong!

The thing is, I've been using my face wash in a wrong manner; I was rubbing it quickly for half a minute, and then rinsed.

After watching this vid though, my routine changed:

Catalina, a lovely youtuber from NYC, shows how she cleanses and moisturises her skin every morning and night; the way she uses her face wash makes much more sense than my slacking half-a-minute business! She works the cleanser for a good amount of time, massaging her face in all directions, so that the product gets into the pores of the skin and unclogs those oily areas...

I decided to do this technique today with my Body Shop Vitamin C face wash. The results? Amazing! I couldn't believe how a couple of extra minutes working the cleanser all over the face does such a difference in my skin's texture! It was softer, radiant, less "bumpy", my pores seemed smaller... A squeaky clean face!

This particular cleanser contains tiny jojoba beads that help exfoliate the skin; with this new technique, it performs at its best! But I'm sure that a good gel cleanser free of exfoliating particles will do the trick- if used with the above tips. I would recommend the Garnier Pure Deep Clean foam wash, the Korres Thyme and Sage facial gel, or the Neutrogena Visibly Clear oil-free facial wash.

If you do this little trick, please let me know how it went ;)
Happy blogging and reading and commenting to everyone!

    @This Is Me, I know, taking it off carelessly leads to premature aging. Fact!
