How often do you need you to need to do it?
You should do it every morning and evening- though it’s most commonly done during at night time to remove all the impurities that your skin has collected throughout the day and also help your other skincare products to absorb into your skin. The key is always being consistent, make it a routine, a habit, but the said method really depends on your lifestyle.
How to do it?
Start with your Oil cleanser – massage it on your face including your neck, thoroughly focusing on the areas where you tend to have really clogged pores. You can take a good minute on doing it. You can use warm water to rinse it or use a washcloth for extra exfoliating your skin, do it by pressing it into your face and gently use a circular motion to remove the cleansing oil.
