Clean Hands Only

If you are experiencing acne and/or consistent breakouts, try washing your face with clean hands rather than a washcloth. Growing up, most of us were taught to wash our faces with a washcloth and/or to use the same washcloth all week. Truth be told, washcloths can harbor bacteria that cause breakouts.

Every time you re-use that washcloth, you are reapplying bacteria to your face. To maintain healthy skin, apply products with clean hands and use a clean towel to gently pat the skin dry.
