3-Minute Face Care Guide to Great Looking Skin

Proper Face Care is essential and should be a part of your everyday routine. That means engaging in a skin care regimen that is free from your old habits that eventually lead to skin problems. It is no mystery that one of the main reasons for skin breakouts is over-stripping. Over-stripping is when you cleanse your face too much and/or too roughly more than twice daily. Cleansing your face this way, was long-thought of as good and necessary to effectively remove dirt and bacteria that cause acne. Excessive face cleansing can strip your skin of its natural oil, causing skin irritation because of the dryness and over stimulation of your sebaceous glands. If you continue with this kind of skin care ritual, you will successfully cause a skin breakout in no time.

Face Care is important but it does not require you to take hours at a time to do it. In fact, your skin only needs a few minutes of cleansing. Moreover, the ideal amount of time to do just that is within 3 minutes.

To illustrate further, here are the things that you will need to accomplish within those minutes:

1. Gently remove make-up using a clean washcloth or cotton pad starting from the chin then moving up. Do not rub on your skin too hard or forcefully try to remove make-up that is too difficult to come-off. This should take you about a minute to accomplish.

2. Wet your face with tepid water and lather a pea-sized amount of creamy facial wash (for dry and combination skin) or translucent gel cleanser (for oily skin) in circular motion all over your face (it' would be better to use a face brush) . Give a little more attention to areas of your skin that need more cleansing. Doing this should only take you 30 seconds. The same rule applies when you are exfoliating your skin. Instead of repeating the process for another 30 seconds, use your exfoliating cleanser in place of your facial wash.

3. Rinse your face thoroughly with tepid water for another 30 seconds. This amount of time is enough to remove all traces of your make-up and cleanser from your face.

4. Take only a few seconds to pat your skin dry with a clean towel. Do not leave wet areas on your face and neck.

5. Gently apply a pea-sized amount of your favorite moisturizer all over your face and neck. A non-comedogenic moisturizer should be used if you have oily to normal skin and an alcohol-free moisturizer is the top choice for dry and combination skin. Refrain from rubbing the moisturizer on the sides of your nose or around your mouth. This routine should only take 30 seconds to accomplish.

Finally, always stick to products that are designed for your skin type. Never experiment with different products you see in the market without reading the ingredient list first. Remember the importance of not over stimulating your skin which can cause it to produce too much sebum. This means leaving behind some of your old skin care habits and creating a new habit of using a simpler Face Care routine.
