We know facial cleansing is pretty easy. Just splash some water on your face, rub in a little cleanser, and rinse, right? Well, yes, it can be that simple, but figuring out how to properly wash your face for your specific skin takes a little more work than that. Cleansing is worth the effort to get it right. It washes away not only makeup but also dirt, dead skin cells, and anything else that might clog your pores or cause a general dullness. And, depending on the type of cleanser you use, it could also help treat specific skin conditions, like acne. So today, MACCARON is here to make your cleansing routine even more effective. Let’s learn how to wash your face, the right way! 😀
1. Use the right water temperature
Wash your face with water that’s not too warm nor too cold. Using cold water or hot water can be damaging to the delicate skin on your skin. Lukewarm is the best. Lukewarm water will help open your pores. Rinse thoroughly to ensure all traces of cleanser and dirt are removed from the skin’s surface and then gently pat dry the face.
2. Keep everything clean
What do you do first when you wash your face? Do you soap your face right after wetting it? STOP! Wash your hands before you wash your face. If your hands have any bacteria on them (which they will from day-to-day use), this will end up transferring on your face. Also, keep a separate towel with which to dry your face. It’s generally not a good idea to use the family hand towel to wipe your face!
3. Choose the right face cleanser for your skin type
It’s very important to find the right cleanser for your skin type. Using the wrong product could actually damage the skin. That’s why it is very important to look for a gentle cleanser that thoroughly cleanses your face and at the same time cares for your skin. A gentle, gel-based face cleanser is best suitable for oily and acne-prone skin. Consider a moisturizing formula for dry to normal skin. If you have sensitive skin make sure to read the ingredients. Fortunately, Korean beauty brands’ cleansers are all made to meet your needs! — You can easily find the right face cleansers for your skin type on MACCARON.

4. Double cleansing
For your perfect cleansing, why don’t you try the Korean Double Cleansing method? As the name suggests, double cleansing essentially involves washing your face in two steps: first, by using an oil-based cleanser, followed by a water-based cleanser. Using two different cleansers at night is designed to remove makeup, dirt, and build-up for cleaner, softer, and smoother skin. It can also assist with the prevention and spread of blemishes. Start by washing your face with an oil-based cleanser. This will remove oil-based impurities including sebum, sunscreen, pollutants, and makeup. Followed by washing your face with a water-based cleanser, which will remove bacteria, sweat and dead skin cells.
