Question: I was reading a answer on yahoo when I came across a question that said is rainwater good for your skin?So I read the responses and then I saw one that said that washing your face isn't good for you because it washes away oil on your face etc etc.I know that it washes oil away but is washing your face really that bad?

I've heard that too but when I tried I broke out. Try washing it with just water in the morning and then a facewash at night. With all the toxins in the environment, it is important to wash your face. If you wear any makeup at all, you should definitely wash it off your face every night as well.

Yes of course you do! It's not just because of greasy skin, it's because of all the toxins in the air that damage your skin. Your skin can age an extra day for every time you don't wash your face, and 4 days if you wear make up! And use a moisturiser as well. You don't want wrinkles!!

Who ever said that is retarded. Washing your face is the best thing you can do. It get rids of access oil, dirt, and other things that have come in contact with your face. What is not good when washing your face is using harsh chemicals. Look at the back of your product bottles that you use. Anything that has Alcohol or Acids, get rid of. It’s alright to have a low amount of them like 2%. What you should do to keep your face healthy and clean is to: Steam your face/Using hot water. This opens your pores and releases all the bacteria that is trapped in your face causing to produce more Oil and Acne. You want to exfoliate once or twice a week. I usually do it every Wed and Sunday. Then I take a good cleanser and toner if necessary. I recommend using the Clinique 3 Step System. If you use Make-Up I recommend getting face wipes and doing that first before all the things above. Do not use baby wipes though. It may be soft enough for a babies butt, but it’s harsh on your face.

Your face doesn't naturally clean itself. Washing your face isn't bad, but you can wash too much, which can actually cause blemishes. If you wash your face too often, then the face tries to compensate for that by creating even more oil. There's no harm in washing your face before bed to get the grime from your day off of it.

Stripping too MUCH oil from your skin is bad since that causes it to dry out and then over produce even more oil. Most face washes aren't the best for your skin since they foam and the foam strips more oil from your skin. Just use a non-foaming cleanser and you should be fine.

You have to wash your face at least twice a day or your pores are going to be filled with icky gunk and no one wants that, it your face is too dry at a little bit of face cream
