How Often Should Men Wash Their Face?

How Often Should Men Wash Their Face? We’ve all become used to washing our hands a trillion times a day, but there’s still a lot of mystery when it comes to washing our faces. On the one hand, you want to remove all the dirt and grime that collects on your cheeks, chin, and forehead during the day, but you also don’t want to over-wash your face, which may result in the same type of raw skin that we see on our over-scrubbed hands.

Guys, you should cleanse your face twice a day in an ideal world.

Two is the magic number, according to experts: wash once in the morning and once at night. Bacteria accumulates on your skin as you sleep, and you must wash it off in the morning. Not only does the morning wash provide a refreshing wake-up, but it also prepares your face for your morning skin-care regimen.

Of course, to avoid clogging your pores, you’ll want to wipe off all traces of makeup, oil, grime, and whatever other environmental pollutants may have settled on your face throughout your daily travels at night.

If you have to choose one time to wash your face, make it at night.

You can skip washing in the morning if you’re rationing your cleanser or if you’re worried about your skin becoming dry and flaky from scrubbing it too hard.

But don’t forget to cleanse at night! The epidermis’ top layer regenerates overnight, and you don’t want to hinder that process by clogging the pores with cosmetics, debris, or oil.

Use the same 20-second guideline as when you wash your hands.

You know how you hum a tune to remind yourself to clean your hands for at least 20 seconds? When you’re washing your face, you’ll want to sing an encore to make sure you get every place. Never put anything on your face that is overly bristly or scratchy.

Start rubbing the cleanser in at the top of your face with cold to warm water (hot water may strip the skin of oils and make it feel more dry), then work your way around to your chin in two revolutions while singing your song. After that, gently pat dry with a soft towel, taking careful not to rub too hard, wipe with micellar water if you’re using it, and apply your moisturiser.

When you should wash more than once…

The twice-daily norm does include one exception. If you’re working out and your face gets sweaty, go ahead and wash it off with a light cleanser one more time. Alternatively, you may put some cleaning wipes in your workout bag to remove what you can before doing your complete evening cleanse.
