A clean skin that radiates health, luminance, and happiness is all we want, right? Well, the effort that goes into having that skin is crazy amounts! So, why do we need to keep our face skin clean all day long? And is it even possible, after all? To address the first concern – keeping a clean face keeps all the dirt, pollutants, pore clogs, impurities, and grease away. And yes, it is possible to keep your face clean (not squeaky clean as a car wash) with just the right regime.
No matter what your skin type is, keeping your facial skin clean and healthy should be your priority in the beauty regime. Read on to find out how our beauty and wellness enthusiasts at Zoylee suggest you maintain skin health; that doesn’t lie!
How to clean your facial skin at home
Keeping your skin happy at home is a no-brainer. Apart from some grandma’s recipes and DIYs, all you need to do is make some changes in your routine habits. Didn’t understand what we’re saying here? Keeping reading, girl.
- Splash with lukewarm
It’s advised to wash your face twice a day. Depending on your skin type, you can use the face wash of your choice or even wash it without using any product. Simply splash some lukewarm water onto your face in the morning and evening, and make sure you moisturize after.
- Pat, pat, pat
We’re 100% sure that most of you know it’s not healthy to scrub or wipe your face with a towel. But not all of us give it any practical use, do we? Towel scrubs are harsh on your sensitive skin, especially under the eyes and near lips. So, rather than giving it a hard blow with an old towel or letting it air-dry, go for a clean, anti-microbial, and cotton-made face towel.
- Before you snooze
This is one of the most important steps for ladies who are out all day and wear makeup till they call it a day. Girls, always make sure that your makeup is completely off your skin before you hit the bed. Use good-quality micellar water and if you’re heavy on the makeup, then add cleanser as well.
- Exfoliate well
Make it a weekly habit to scrub and exfoliate your face (and body too!) Exfoliating helps remove acne marks, wash away the dead skin cells, brighten the skin, maintain blood circulation, and lighten dark spots. However, don’t overuse a scrub and make sure it’s not too hard on your face as it can also take away the natural oil off your face, leaving it dry, rashy, and irritated.
- Natural cleanser
Indian households are a Disneyland for lovers of skincare DIYs. Use kitchen items such as milk, cucumber, curd, honey, or oatmeal to prepare a cleanser at home. Then, apply these twice a week and make sure that you follow the tips mentioned above for the best results.
Get clean skin at a parlor
Okay, let’s be honest. We all love that aromatic, relaxing, and heart-lightning experience at a parlor. So, whenever you’re in a mood to ditch your at-home skin care regime, head out to get some of these amazing parlor treatments for clear skin;
Cleanup gives your face that deep-clean that it’s been craving and results in your face looking brighter, toned, and nourished.

Please make sure you also get those blackheads and whiteheads scooped out while you’re at it!

- D-Tan time
If you’ve got a bad suntan or you just got back from an adventurous weekend, then some D-tan is just what you need! It makes your face look even by taking away the damage done by harmful UV rays. A good D-tan will give your face nourishment, calmness, and brightness that you lost to the outdoors.
- Peel it off!
No, we’re not asking you to start supernaturally shredding your skin; however cool that might be! Peeling or Chemical peeling is a process that allows your hyperpigmented and wrinkled skin to peel off and make space for clearer, younger, and fresher skin to regenerate. It’s done by professionals and must be practiced only after you’ve carefully understood the entire process and the outcomes of it.
- Pores to professionals
Exfoliation is necessary to keep your pores unclogged and open for air. However, if you have excessive pores that manage to give you somehow a hard time, then go for a deep pore cleansing treatment. As stated, it’s best to let a professional do it for you and later enjoy a better breathing face skin.
Okay, but don’t do this..
Now that you have your hands full with all the professional and at-home tips for clean skin don’t leave without knowing what NOT to do. Sometimes, it’s the things that we miss doing or do wrong that end up giving us the most trouble.
- Always ensure that you’re using the right products on your face. In this context, keep an eye on your cleanser, moisturizer, and makeup remover.
- Avoid using complex tools at home, especially if you’re not familiar with them. Not just that, even simpler things like scrubbing, massage, steaming, etc., need to be done properly by following the right procedure.
- Always, always use a clean cloth on your face. Those germy towels can be the real enemies to your face. On that note, do not use dirty hands to put products on your face.
- Wash your face after a shower. Why is that, you ask? It’s so that all that hair shampoo or conditioner that residues on your face while showering could be washed away later. Also, if you’re a lover of hot water showers, then including your face to the party is a no-no!
