As I constantly look to improve every process in my life, I discovered tonight a new face-washing routine that I like so far. I use a moisturizing cleanser and a washcloth. I used to splash my face with water before putting on the cleanser, but I've found that applying cleanser first really lets the soap grab onto the skin cells more effectively. Then, instead of making a big mess splashing water onto my face and blindly trying to guess which parts of my face still have globs of soap left, I gently wipe off the cleanser with a warm, wet washcloth. I make 3 passes with the cloth, rinsing it in between with successively cooler water to close the pores back up. I then apply my toner & moisturizer. Ahhh, I feel clean!
