How often should you be washing your face?

Beautiful LadyWashing your face seems like an easy task. In fact, for most of us, it didn’t seem like a chore at all but rather, a habit that you do every day. However, have you ever asked yourself if you are washing your face enough? Or if you have been washing too much? Washing your face too much or too little can lead to a variety of skin problems such as:

  • Over drying
  • Irritation and
  • Acne breakouts

To maintain your very best appearance and keep your skin healthy, it is important to know the number of times necessary to wash your face daily. While you think that washing your face too often can make your face cleaner, it’s not. It can actually strip your face of its natural moisture. Remember, some things can never be too clean, but your face is not one of these things.

Wash your face just right!

So how many times should you wash your face in a day? Where should you draw the line between the right amount of washing and what would be considered as over washing?Generally, twicea day (one in the morning and one at night) is recommended. It’s enough to take off the dirt and makeup traces on your face. However, there are factors that will affect the frequency of washing your face, such as the type skin you have and your lifestyle.

Type of skin

People with oily skin type should wash their face less often compared to people with a drier skin. Excessive washing on oily skin can strip your face of oil, which can cause your skin to produce more oil. On the other hand, people with drier skin are required to wash at least twice times a day, to remove the dirt and debris on your skin pores so your skin can breathe properly.


Do you do play sport? Chances are, you might have signed up for an afternoon workout so you may tend to wash your face three times. In the morning, after your workout and before retiring to bed.

Make Your Skin Look Younger With Makeup

3 ways to make your skin look younger with makeup!

We all want to look our best and by that, our best means the most youthful version of ourselves. Of course, there are many ways to slow down ageing process such as:
• Eating healthy foods
• Wearing sunscreen protection
• Drinking lots of water
• Having a healthy beauty regimen
• Using quality skin care products
However, for those us who may have missed some on these things, or have gotten a bit much sun in the past; it doesn’t mean it’s too late to make yourself look younger? Makeup is a great way to cover you imperfections and blemishes.

Ways to make your skin look younger with make up

Makeup can trick the eye into seeing things that aren’t always there and is very effective at making you look younger. Be careful because makeup can also make you look older if not applied correctly. Here’s 3 ways to make your skin look younger with makeup:

  1. Choose a foundation that matches your skin colour
    Choosing a foundation with light colour can make your skin look dull and lifeless – like you’ve just bump into a sack of baby powder! If you go too dark, you are dragging your features down making you look a bit older than your actual age. Test out the foundation first, get the right colour and wear a foundation that matches for complexion.
  2. Apply the shade blush on the apple of your cheek
    Adding blush on your cheek duplicates the rosiness of yesteryears! Make sure you add the shade blush on the right spot – in the apple of your cheek, not too low as it can make your face look sagging. Also, don’t forget to use the right colour, otherwise, it can wash you out making you look older.
  3. Use concealer to minimise crow’s feet
    Crow’s feet usually are darker in colour and angle downward. Use the right shade of concealer, apply it in an upward motion to create the illusion of younger eyes and minimise crow’s feet appearance.
    Using these tips will make it easier for you to apply makeup that will make you look younger than you actually are – make sure you do it properly and take years off your face!
