Ok, I’m cutting right to the chase. You are not doing it right. lol. Ok, lol all kidding aside. Washing our faces happens so late in the day that, well, we skip and scrimp just so that we can to bed.

That said, there are 2 methodologies that we can follow to get the proper cleanse on the proper day.

No make up day

Believe it or not, this is the perfect day to have a spa session. Take the 10 to 20 minutes the you were going to use for make up and do a deep cleanse. Why have a spa session on this day. Wearing make up is a lot of stress on the skin. The pores are clogged all day long and you just need to let your skin breathe on a make up day.

– Steps

  1. Wash your hands. Clean your hands first to start with clean tools.
  2. Oil cleanse the skin to loosen up particles on the surface of your skin. Like sunblock, sweat or atmospheric particulates.
  3. Cleanse your skin with a gentle cleanser. Use your fingers for this step
  4. Cleanse one more time with a clean facial cleansing brush, clarisonic or face towel
  5. Apply a clay mask to draw out the impurities
  6. Rinse the mask off
  7. Tone (optional)
  8. Nourish with a serum and/or oil. This is the perfect time to add in a facial massage.
  9. Moisturize

Make up day

On the day you beat that face, you may want to go gently on your skin. Make sure to remove the make up well and to cleanse well. Removing layers of make up takes time. Be gentle.

– Steps

  1. Wash your hands
  2. Rinse skin with regular or micellar water, then use a face wipe to remove the first layer of debris
  3. Oil or lotion cleanse the mascara and eyeliner
  4. Repeat the face wipe cleanse. The goal is to remove most of the make up before you wash your skin. Washing your face should be about cleansing your skin, not removing your make up.
  5. Cleanse with a gentle cleanser. Use your fingers for this step, we’ll come back to other steps.
  6. Cleanse one more time with a clean facial cleansing brush, clarisonic or face towel
  7. Tone (optional)
  8. Nourish with a serum and/or oil. This is the perfect time to add in a facial massage.
  9. Moisturize
