1. After gently washing your face with water, pump up an appropriate amount of facial wash onto your palm. (Washing your face at the beginning with water removes surface dirt, and reaxes the pores, increasing effectiveness of facial wash.)
2. Gently massage lather onto face, covering all areas. Pay special attention to the T-zone (forehead to nose), sides of the face, hairline, and blackheads on the nose.
3. Wash off lather completely. (Leaving behind excess lather can result in acne. Pay attention to difficult to reach areas like hairline, sides of face, and around the ear.) Use a soft, clean towel to dab dry the face. (While drying the face, do not use force. Instead, focus on dabbing dry.)
Do not use hot or cold water!
Water at room temperature is highly recommended. Hot water results in over-expansion of pores, stripping essential moisture in skin, thus resulting in drying. Cold water hinders effective lathring, and contracts pores, preventing deep cleansing.
Do not cleanse areas with acne hard!
Hard scrubbing of areas with acne may worsen acne, so do be gentle while cleansing. Remember also to use a clean towel when drying the face.
Do not cleanse area around the eye hard!
The areas around the eye are sensitive and more fragile, so do cleanse carefully. Be extra careful when using scrub products.
