How to Wash Your Face

You would think washing
your face is a complete no-brainer, but consider this:  on more than one occasion, I’ve been prompted
to ask clients with congestion and breakouts on their entire
hairline if they
tend to avoid those areas when washing.   
Often people will avoid the area not wanting to get it wet.  This can sometimes be why I see such congestion there.  

Now granted, someone who washes their hair every day will not have this
problem no matter how they wash their face. 
But not everyone does that.

There is a part of this issue
that is very much
not a no-brainer,
and that is the matter of using the wrong
cleanser.  On one hand, the skin feels nice and soft
after washing but is not getting clean and you may not even know it; all you
know is your skin is getting more and more congested, dull and eventually, a
little dried out, ironically, because skin that’s not clean doesn’t function or
flow properly, leaving it vulnerable to water-loss.
  On the other hand, skin feels squeaky clean
but has everything stripped the heck away from it.
  This causes horrible dryness, eventually
ripping apart the skin’s natural barrier, leading to water-loss and more
dryness.
The
way you tell if a cleanser is right for you is if it rinses clean within 2-3
splashes and does not leave your skin tight or dry.
  If it’s medicated, it should not leave your
skin irritated.
  If it doesn’t rinse well
right away it means the pH is too low and your skin isn’t really being
cleaned.
  If your skin is tight after
rinsing it means your skin’s pH has been thrown off and no matter how much
moisturizer you put on, your skin will still over-produce oil to get your skin
back to the right pH.
  Also, the
irritation from dryness can create a slight breakage in the skin’s integrity
that can create a kind of
sensitivity that makes it easier for blemishes to
develop.
