How often should I wash my face to keep my skin clear?

Posted by Otis Skincare on

In general, you need to wash your face twice a day – am and pm – but if you’re doing any sweat-inducing sports you should do it after that too.

And here’s why…

In the AM 

Even if you don't see any visible dirt on your skin when you look in the mirror, there’s a build-up of oil and dead skin cells that have accumulated throughout the night. And it’s a good idea to clean them off your face before they have a chance to clog your pores.

It also helps to clean your face before you shave.
By removing dead skin cells, your razor can run more smoothly and there’s less chance of ingrown hairs developing.

And washing your face first thing in the morning gets your day off to a great start!

If your skin feels clean and refreshed then chances are you will too!

In the PM 

Last thing at night you need to remove the general grime and bacteria that we all come into contact with during the day - as well as any oil that has accumulated on your skin. So washing your face again in the evening is a must.



Whilst sweating is great for detoxifying, the sweat sits on your skin and acts as a breeding ground for bacteria, which can lead to acne breakouts.

And the salts from sweat can be drying and irritating so you need to clear them away as soon as possible before your complexion suffers.

The best way to keep your face clean

Our Daily Face Wash cleans away dirt, oil and bacteria - without making your face feel dry.

And it exfoliates too! 

As well as keeping your face clean, our non-drying Daily Face Wash gently exfoliates, and re-energizes your skin – all in 60 seconds.

This double-action of cleaning and exfoliating instantly reveals brighter, smoother skin.

And using Daily Face Wash allows for better absorption of your moisturizer, keeping your skin well hydrated.
