Using warm, (not hot), water and a mild cleanser gently wash your face, then rinse thoroughly with warm water. Soaps of any sort should not be used on the face as they can be too harsh, drying out the skin and clog pores.
A soy-based cleanser is a good choice for all skin types.
Gently pat skin dry or allow the moisture to evaporate naturally.
Remember that sensitive, dry or normal skin types can skip the morning cleansing step. A once-a-day thorough cleansing is more than sufficient for these skin types. If cleansing just once a day, the evening is the most productive time so that any make-up, sweat and dirt accumulated on the skin throughout the day is washed away.
Simply begin the morning's facial skin care routine with a quick rinse with warm water, then use a vitamin rich toner.
Bear in mind that here is simply no need to purchase a cleansing product that includes an active anti-aging ingredient since it is rinsed off and will go down the drain anyways.
If any residue of the product remains, it will have a negligible effect at best, so include the skin rejuvenation treatments in your skin regimen where they will have the most impact.
If you just can't help yourself, try a cleanser from the Olay Regenerist Series
with microbeads which will offer a gentle exfoliation in addition to cleansing.
Preparing the skin properly to maximize the absorption of anti-aging products is one of the more important skin care tips and a critical strategy to include in your facial rejuvenation routine.
Warm, moist skin is an ideal environment to create prior to the application of any facial skin care product. Make sure that the skin is at its most receptive by holding a face cloth that has been soaked in warm water to your face for a few minutes prior to applying any products.
The remaining moisture left on the skin will help to dissolve and distribute the moisturizer evenly over the entire surface of the skin.
