Having great skin means more than just washing your face twice a day. What products you use and how you clean your skin will also make an effect. This article will give you a few tips on what you can do to have great-looking skin.1Wash your face twice a day. Don't over-wash your face, however. You will dry out your skin, which will cause it to produce extra oils to compensate. Instead, wash your face in the morning when you wake up, and in the evening before you go to bed. Use a gentle face wash designed for your skin type. Don't use ordinary hand or body soaps; they are too harsh for the sensitive skin on your face and could lead to dryness or breakouts. *Don't wear makeup to bed. Even if you are tired and falling asleep on your feet, try to summon enough energy to clean
all that makeup off. If you don't, the makeup will clog your pores. This may result in acne the following morning.2Exfoliating is good, but over-exfoliating is not. Ideally, you should exfoliate once or twice a week, and more often if the days are hot and humid. Exfoliating is good, because it helps scrub away dead skin cells to reveal the fresh skin underneath. It will make your skin appear less dull and more bright. However, exfoliating too often can make your skin extra-sensitive and appear red. *If you'd like to try making some of your own face and body scrubs.3Use toner to restore your skin's natural pH and tighten pores. Soak a cotton ball with some toner and sweep it across your face. Focus on your forehead, nose, and cheeks. Avoid the eyes and mouth. *If you have sensitive skin, try to use a gentle, alcohol-free toner, or rosewater.
