For most people, rubbing face wash and splashing water on their faces seem to be the most straightforward way of ridding your face of the day’s grime but it might not be all that simple as one might think. In fact, skin experts from all over the world attest to the fact that using a face cleanser doesn’t constitute a ‘clean face’. One of the reasons why proper face washing is overlooked by an overwhelming 80% of the population has to do with them failing to understand the reason behind it.
So to give you an idea about how important proper face cleansing is here are a few reasons why you need to make it a routine:
You touch your face. ALL. THE. TIME.
As much as it pains us to admit, the numbers don’t lie. A person touches their face an average of 16 times per hour which actually doesn’t do our faces any favors as our hands touch everything which is one of the main carriers of bacteria. And as much you wash your hands you’ll probably never get rid of all of it. So if you don’t make proper face washing a routine, you’re giving those bacteria a free pass to spread and multiply on your face.
Your face touches everything (not literally)
While most of us don’t lean their faces on car windows or rest their faces on laptop keyboards, there’s still a lot of contact your face has with bacteria aside from our hands. One culprit may be cellphones which have been known to carry 8,000 times as many CFUs (colony forming units) as the average bathroom door handle. EW!
Your face is the prime spot for acne.
While there are a select few who never have to bother with acne, there’s no denying that it affects a lot of people and is one of the most common skin condition all over the world. And while there are efficient ways to treat acne, the fact still remains that the skin on the face is at a higher risk of breakouts. Cleansing is a great way to prevent and improve the condition of these blemishes.
