I am doing an experiment to see if I notice a difference by washing my face more often.

I typically wash in the morning and at night if I wore makeup (rare).

My friend was like “omg you don’t wash off your sunscreen?!?”

Nighttime washes give me an excuse to do more masks. So I am experimenting. And my skin does seem to look better.

So when do you wash, and how often?

Morning and night, every single day. And I’ve seen a MASSIVE difference (I used to skip washing at night)

If I’ve worn makeup, I double-cleanse at night ... first use an oil-based cleanser or micellar water to remove makeup, then follow with a water based cleanser. I also use a Clarisonic brush anytime I wash my face. My skin is soooooo much better!

More washing is not always better. It will dry out your skin....but I only use moisturizers.

In the shower or as needed for extra dirty activities.

True.

And I don't think the OP is asking about when we're firing up the tractor for yard work. But, rather, under normal circumstances.

I wash my face before going to bed when removing makeup. Why the heck would I need to wash it again when I get up, in the shower?

At night, along with my other skin care stuff.


Twice a day wouldn't work for me personally, my face gets too dry

When I take a shower. Start at the top with my hair, apply soap top to bottom, rinse off, towel dry.


Fortunately I am a guy so I don't have to participate in skin care voodoo.

For some people, their face gets oily overnight. If I don't wash my face in the morning, my makeup just slides right off.

Washing twice a day (plus moisturizing and using oils) has actually helped to balance my skin's overactive oil production.
