You have the knowledge, now to make use of it…
Washing your face:
Your hands should be clean before you wash your face.
• After lathering soap, rub your palms together for about 20 seconds at a vigorous pace.
• Rub everything – the back of your hands, wrists, between your fingers, and under nails.
Splash your face with Tepid Water. Lukewarm water is the most effective at retaining skin hydration. Hot water deals more damage than it's worth. Cold water seals the pores and makes cleaning less efficient.
Dispense a small amount of face wash into the palm of your hand. The amount of cleanser you dispense should be approximately the size of a nickel. Using less cleanser won't get your face clean, while using more cleanser will end up being a waste of product.
DO NOT SCRUB. Scrubbing only provokes skin irritation. Add more water and emulsify it. Take care to cover all areas of the skin in circular motions for about 60 seconds.
Once you've applied it thoroughly, go ahead and rinse. Use warm water once again to keep flush out pores.. Make sure to remove ALL traces of the cleanser as residue can lead to more excess dryness.
Use five drops of Hello Glow serum followed with a sunscreen!
Sunscreens act as a shield against the harmful UV rays which penetrates every time your skin is exposed. It is therefore advisable to use sunscreen every day – even when your indoors!
Opt for a broad spectrum sunscreen lotion with a minimum SPF of 30.
Put What Pores toner on to your face using 5 drops.
The final step is to moisturize. Quality moisturizers are designed to hydrate and renew the skin.
Remember that you should apply moisturizer evenly to your face after every wash!
