The age-old question. I mean, it kind of goes side and side with my recent blog regarding washing your hair. It is all about knowing your own skin you’re livin in. Just like how some locks benefit from less washing, some skin benefits from less washing, whereas some people’s hair NEEDS to be washed daily, some skin types need washing more than others.
With it being said that I find it MOST important to get to know your own skin and your own hair and finding that sweet-goldy-locks-spot that works for you, here are some tips I have picked up along the way:
(Also, I don’t know about you, but my skin has changed throughout the year and also changes through the seasons, so my skin regiment definitely changes with it.)
When my skin is more oily, honestly- I know it is counterintuitive, but I wash it less. I usually thoroughly wash it before bed, and then just use a rose-water “spritzer” in the morning and go ahead with my normal routine.
When my skin is getting dry I like to wash my face with a moisturizing cleanser in the morning and then maybe spritz mid-afternoon, and then return to my normal routine before bed.
It really does depend on your skin-type, or where your skin is at in its yearly cycle if you have one like me. But I would suggest the next time you feel like your skin is getting crazy oily, refrain from washing and try just using a matte moisturizer or, I know this sounds weird, just grab some toilet paper and blot of the oil. Washing will only cause more oil and more unnecessary problems.
