Health Tip: Wash Your Face Correctly
Be gentle on your skin
-- Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Washing your face correctly can lead to healthier, more radiant skin.

The American Academy of Dermatology suggests:

  • Washing the face with an alcohol-free, non-abrasive cleanser.
  • Using lukewarm water to dampen the face, then using fingertips to gently cleanse. Do not use sponges, washcloths or any product that could irritate skin.
  • Avoiding scrubbing your skin while or after washing. Gently pat the skin dry with a clean towel.
  • Applying moisturizer, using extra care around the eyes.
  • Avoiding washing your face more than twice daily. But do wash after you've been sweating.
