How often should I wash my face?
How often should I wash my face? Twice a day will do the trick. Once in the morning and once at the end of the day.
The key is to use a soap or face wash that's gentle on your skin. Harsh chemicals and regular body-bar soap will dry out your face, and that's not healthy. Your skin naturally produces some oil; you only want to wash away *excessive* oil, dirt and germs.
Dermatologists say it's good to wash or rinse one additional time after exercising or otherwise sweating.
