    From washing your face couple of times to how you wash it, along with the water that is being used, each factor plays a major role in having a beautiful skin.

    Read on to know more about the various do's and don'ts that need to be followed.


    Wash Your Hands First

    Clean your hands well before you wash your face. The dirt and germs on your hands will come in contact with the skin and leave the bacteria to give rise to skin problems like acne. This is one of the do's that you have to follow.


    Do Not Use Hot And Cold Water

    Make sure you always use lukewarm water and not cold or hot water. The blood vessels and capillaries break when you use hot water. If you are trying to unclog your pores, then using cold water is not a good option.


    Wash Face Twice Daily

    In order to avoid acne and exfoliate the skin, wash your face twice in a day to avoid pimple breakouts. This helps in removing the excess oil built up on the face.


    Never Scrub Hard

    If you are planning to get rid of dead skin completely and you end up scrubbing your face hard, then it is a wrong way to get clear skin. The excess scrubbing makes your skin dry and opens pores which can lead to acne. Instead, do a gentle scrub once a week.


    Remove Makeup First

    If you think that washing your face will remove your makeup completely then you are wrong my friend. Use a makeup remover before you wash and cleanse your face. This helps you avoid extra scrubbing as well.


    Wash Face After Cleansing Hair

    After you wash your hair make sure you clean your face at least with some water as this helps to remove any dandruff or hair follicle that is stuck on your face. This is one of the most important step that we all need to follow.


    Never Apply Moisturiser On Dry Skin

    Applying moisturiser on dry skin will not work out as the moisture is not retained even after few applications. Instead, damp your skin and apply the moisturiser as it helps to retain the water.
