  • By Srishty Singh

A face wash in your daily routine dislodges dirt, grime and sebum from the pores for a refreshed complexion. Additionally, picking the right formula can help combat underlying skin concerns ranging from excessive greasiness to dehydration. But how do you make this choice? Don’t worry, Foxtale is here to help!

In this blog, we take you through types of face wash and their benefits. From our innovative acne face wash to a hydrating formula that replenishes your skin’s moisture content – scroll ahead to make an informed choice. Before we get into specific skin concerns, let’s refresh our basics on face wash.

 What Is A Face Wash?

 Available in gel, cream and foam-based formats, a face wash is meant for deep cleaning the pores. A potent formula removes the most stubborn traces of impurities without hampering the skin’s natural pH. 

 What Are The Benefits Of A Face Wash?

A face wash has a flurry of benefits when used right.

1. It Ensures A Clean, Bright Surface: Using a face wash buffs away dead cells and debris on the dermis, ensuring a clean, bright surface. This also ensures healthy cellular regeneration overnight for rejuvenated skin.

2. Improves Blood Circulation: Using a face wash regularly improves the blood supply to the skin cells. This increases the collagen production in your skin, making it look taut and supple.

3. Keeps Pores Clean: Your skin bears the wrath of pollutants and other environmental aggressors on the reg. This leads to an unwanted build-up on the dermis which may clog the pores – further leading to whiteheads, blackheads or even acne. A meticulous face wash prevents clogged pores, keeping bumps and eruptions at bay.

4. Facilitates Better Absorption Of Serums/Treatments: Using a face wash cleanses the pores, ensuring better absorption of your serums/treatments.

5. Soothes Inflammation And Redness: Using formulations infused with Hyaluronic Acid,  Glycerine or more, offset inflammation or redness caused to the skin.

How To Use A Face Wash?

While there is no rulebook for using a face wash or cleanser, you can use these tips & tricks for the best results.

1. Amount: Use a coin-sized amount of your face wash and work it into a lather. Next, use a light hand and scrub your face gently for 30 seconds –  while being extremely cautious around the eyes/lips.

2. No Vigorous Rubbing: To reiterate, aggressive rubbing can be abrasive to the skin. It can strain your skin and should be avoided at all costs.

3. Double Cleanse: After 30 seconds, use cold water to rinse off. Cold water makes your skin look taut while minimizing the appearance of pores.

4. Never Overwash: Use your face wash only twice a day (during your morning and night time routine). Overwashing can expel natural oils from your skin, making it flaky and uncomfortably dry.
