When I was in college (which was only a few months ago) and would come back from a party at 2am, there were two things I was never too drunk to do: wash my face and wrap my hair.
This post is not only for those girls that enjoy a daily face beat but also for the gals that like to go au natural and wear little to no makeup. No matter what category you fit into, the most important thing to remember is to wash your face daily!
Washing your face everyday is super important because 1. you never want to sleep in your makeup and 2. even if you don’t wear makeup, nature’s elements like dust particles and dirt can land on your skin and help clog your pores and even lead to acne.
…I know right?!
Typically, my face washing routine involves me removing my makeup with coconut oil and then washing my face using the Neutrogena Naturals Facial Cleanser and Pore Scrub. They both cost about $7-$8 each and they feel so light on my skin.
So with the help of some friends, I did a little research about some other popular facial cleansers and products that our generation is using.
- St.Ives Apricot Scrub | $3-$4
“I love the way you can feel the exfoliants scrubbing away the dirt and grime from the day. I walk away feeling fresh and renewed!” – Jadzia | Queens, NY | Skin Type: Normal
2. Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash | $7-$8
“Since I have normal skin, I prefer to use products that do not add extra oils or dryness to my skin. I’ve been using Neutrogena for years and it has always been a helper in clearing my skin.” – Biuma | Bronx, NY | Skin Type: Normal
3. Clinique Facial Cleanser Set | $20
“I have very sensitive and oily skin! Besides drinking water and keeping hydrated, I use the Clinique Facial Cleanser set because it is specially formulated for oily skin. It’s a three step cleaning that works for me.” -Courtney | Dover, NJ | Skin Type: Oily and Sensitive
