Dermatologists Tips For Washing Your Face
Dermatologists recommend washing your face twice a day with a gentle face cleanser. In the morning, to remove all the oils that have accumulated on the face overnight, and in the evening to remove the day’s makeup, dirt, and pollutants, all of which can exacerbate acne and premature aging.
How to Use
Recommended for use as a daily face wash for acne. Cleanse twice daily, morning and evening. Wet face, apply quarter size amount onto fingers, and only using finger tips, apply gently on face in a rotating circular motion. Avoid getting into eyes. Rinse thoroughly. Gently pat dry using a soft towel.
