Should you be washing your face in the shower?

Compared to washing your face over the sink, washing your face in the shower saves a lot of time and mess. It also allows you to better cleanse and rinse every angle of your face and neck. However, some experts advise not to wash your face in the shower because it can cause clogged pores and dry skin. But there are ways around this.

Using hot water when washing your face in the shower can indeed strip your skin of moisture and cause dryness. If the water feels hot on your body, it’s definitely too hot for your face. To avoid drying out your face, make sure to shower using lukewarm water. And if you have to use hot water, turn the temperature down when it’s time to wash your face.

How to wash your face in the shower with Charlotte’s Goddess Cleansing Ritual

Unlock the secrets to a DEEPLY PURIFIED complexion by washing your face in the shower with Charlotte’s Goddess Cleansing Ritual following these MAGIC steps…

MAGIC STEP 1: Turn your shower temperature to lukewarm and massage your oil-based cleanser onto your dry skin and gently around the eye area, before you get it wet. The oil cleanser should be applied with dry hands on dry skin, as when wet, the oil formula emulsifies which makes it less effective.

MAGIC STEP 2: Next, immerse your muslin cloth using the warm water from your shower and apply it to your face to melt off the oil-cleanser you just applied, and your makeup. For a magic steam-clean, press the warm muslin cloth onto your face for 20 seconds to open up your pores.

MAGIC STEP 3: After rinsing off the oil-based cleanser, massage the charcoal cleanser into your wet face while avoiding your eye area. Wet the muslin cloth in warm water again and wash off for skin that feels ultra-clean and LOOKS GLOWING.
