Gentle Wash

Gentle Wash

With a gentle wash, you should do this only 2 times a day; day and night. A gentle wash is the first wash you should use if you are starting off with washing your face. It's a great way to get your skin used to stripping the natural oils that can be good and bad. After washing your face with this cleanser you should put on a moisturizer to replace all the natural oil you have just stripped off with the face wash.

Acne Wash

Acne Wash

An acne wash is only supposed to be used if you have little to medium acne problems. Use an acne wash if you often get acne.
If you have black heads…
- wash face 2 times a day
- you can get a special wash just for black heads
-exfoliate 1-2 times a week to get rid of all the dead skin cells
-moisturizer
- get acne gel/ cream (optional)
If you have white heads……
-get a regular acne wash
-try not to get one that exfoliates/ has beads
-moisturizer
-put acne cream/gel on (optional)
-use acne mask once a week (optional)
NOTE: this may take awhile to find what really works for use. But don't worry your acne will go away.
DO NOT POP YOU PIMPLES: WILL LEAVE SCARS
NOTE: If at any point your acne gets way to out of control go see your doctor to ask for prescriptive acne cream/gel and or face wash

Regular wash

Regular wash

A regular wash is a mix of mostly a gentle wash and a little bit of a boost (like acne, dryness, etc.) Typically use this if you don't get acne that often. If you do have dry skin, then get a regular wash that has an extra boost of moisturizer, as well as a really good moisturizer for after word to rejuvenate the good oil that you just washed off. You should always be using a moisturizer. And if you start to get acne, then get a acne cream like clean and clear to put on your pimples.

DON'T MESS WITH YOUR SKIN!!!!!
Your skins balance of natural oils is doing good. If you start to wash your face this may upset your face. Causing irritation, dryness, and or acne. So embrace your natural skin. Wait until your skin seems to get out of whack to start using a facile wash.
