We see questions very often, about how many times someone with Acne, needs to wash his? face, so we decided give some tips here.?
Normally, you never should wash your face, more than 3 times a day. But if you are taking retinoids like Accutane, you probably already have a pretty dry skin, and washing 3 times a day would really further the dryness. While on Accutane your skin stay very sensitive and the fast wash may irritate your skin if you wash more than 2 times a day.
We would suggest maybe just throwing a little water on your face when you first wake up then if you workout for example, just take a shower and really wash your face with face wash. If you don’t workout, just wash at night. Remember, excessive washing will cause dryness.
How many times a day you should moisturize?
Moisturize in the morning and at night. But if you sweat too much, you can try moisturize only once by day. We can suggest you, Cetaphil cleanser to remove the makeup and Cetaphil moisturizer or even Nivea anti-shine in the end. You can buy this stuff at drug stores. But please remember, Cetaphil in some circumstances, could also cause breakouts if you use it more than twice a day.
