I wash mine in the morning, when I get home just because it feels good, before I go to bed (also because it feels good), and if I take a shower (so, about once every three days) I'll wash with an exfoliating scrub. Otherwise I just use plain water for my washing.

I just do what feels good.

Oh, I forgot, I use either Neutrogena or Cetaphil facial cleanser, nothing special, but they are mild.

To Tallysmom: I do not know if this will help with your issue, but about 2 years ago, I started having problems with hordeolums (aka styles) and chelazions, which were large, painful bumps, plus itchiness at the edge of my eyelids along the roots of the lashes. Never had this happen before. I have worn contacts for years and have always been very careful with contact lense hygiene. The opthalmologist told me that sometimes excess oil is produced at the root of the eyelashes and told me to cleanse the eye area with OcuSoft eyescrub. I use the Walgreen brand cleansing eye pads, as they have the same active ingredients as OcuSoft, but cheaper. This solved my problem, so I’ll probably check Amazon for a better price, since this is now part of my cleansing routine. Some people wash their eyelids with baby shampoo, but my Dr. said the OcuSoft is more effective.

I did the baby shampoo, and now I just make sure I scrub my lashes well. Doctor says thereís no sign of the blepharitis so what I am doing is working. He thought it was an infection, thereís barely anything for an infection when he does a stain, barely anything pops. So, not infection. Iíve never had a doctor tell me he was stumped.

Heís stumped.

My eye is still a little red, my vision is a little blurry. There is no corneal lesions. No watering. Iíll probably keep doing what I am doing and go back for another recheck. Iím expecting that one day, I will wake up and it will be gone, much like how it came.

But I will look for those eye pads. My brother in law has it too, and his doesnít want to go away.

You use sunscreen whether it is in your makeup or you put it on before and there is no need to remove it until you wash in the evening. If you go to the beach if you are showering after then yes, you would probably remove it and reapply some form of sunscreen but that wouldn't be an everyday thing.
She meant in the evening. Although I wear sunscreen, I only wash at night ocassionally. But I may keep up the nightly washes. It is making a difference. And I am getting older. My sister claims I am starting to get wrinkles. One difference between her and I is that my skin marks easily. I hate acne since it always leaves a mark for me.

So I am trying to ďunclogĒ my pore. I get recurring hormone related acne on my cheeks and it can take forever to dissipate.

I don't wear makeup. My face gets washed in the shower. I am female and I don't have to participate in skin care voodoo either.

I have never heard of specifically washing sunscreen off. Its certainly not anything I've ever done. Do you wash other lotions off as well? LOL!

I shower every day, even twice a day depending on how hard I work and how hot it is out, or if I go swimming, I shower again after.

Each shower I wash my face and head (I shave my head clean). Once a day with the apricot face scrub with salicylic acid, and the other times, with just body wash.

And I am a man.
