Something that everyone does on awakening is washing one’s face, and many tend to wash their faces frequently throughout the day.
How frequently, however, should one wash one’s face during the day?
Dermatologist Dr Terrence Keaney recommends that faces should only be washed twice in any one day.
Dr Keaney explained that when one washes one’s face, the soap also removes natural aspects from the skin and causes irritation.
Dr Keaney particularly advises men to be gentle when washing their faces.
For this reason he advises that one should wash one’s face before going to bed and again on waking up.
