Keep Your Face Clean

Scottsdale Skin CareYour skin is subjected to many impurities during any given day, including perspiration, bacteria, makeup, and pollution. As part of your Scottsdale skin care regime, it’s important to clean your face twice a day, morning and night, and also after sweating. This makes your skin less prone to clogged pores and breakouts, giving you a fresh, healthy look. It also creates a smooth, clean surface for products like anti-aging treatments and moisturizers to work effectively. 

If you think that more is better when it comes to keeping your face clean, that’s not the case. Harsh scrubbing and products can damage your skin, making it more prone to issues such as redness and infection. If you’re using products that make your skin feel squeaky-clean, you’re actually stripping off natural oils. 

Instead, clean your face gently using the following tips:

Use the right products

A good cleansing routine starts with a product that’s effective yet gentle, such as SkinMedica Facial Cleanser. Perfect for any skin type, it has additional hydrating ingredients, as well as botanical extracts that protect your skin against free-radical damage. If you have acne-prone skin, try SkinMedica’s Purifying Foam Wash. It has salicylic acid to help prevent breakouts and botanicals that soothe and refresh your skin.

Scrub gently

Use your fingers in a circular motion, or use a soft washcloth. Cleansing should take about a minute, and you should make sure to include your neck and as well as areas around your hairline.

Use lukewarm water

Hot water can irritate your skin or make it too dry.

Rinse well

Rinse your face thoroughly with warm water, making sure no residue is left behind.

Blot dry

Dry your face, but be careful not to tug and rub it. Instead, blot your skin gently using a towel.
