20 seconds. That’s how long you spend washing your face. You spend more time on your teeth then your face! It’s important that you put in more time at the sink for the sake of your mug. I highly recommend Dermalogica’s Precleanse. This ingenious product gets your face clean like no other, it’s scientifically formulated to melt away everything you have on your skin. It’s safe for ALL skin types. Use it first to emulsify sunscreen, long-wear makeup, dirt, and oil. It’s an (natural) oil but I promise it won’t break you out. (Former) Girl Scout’s honor. Follow up with a second cleanse with your traditional cleanser and you’re good to go. Really concentrate on the areas where you are prone to congestion and breakouts. I like to use a fresh, white washcloth every time I wash my face at night. I don’t stop washing my face and removing my makeup until the washcloth is white again. Be sure and rinse your skin well too, so you don’t leave behind any soapy residue. As far as I know we only get the one face, take care of it.
