The first thing is cleaning to get fresh skin:
cleaning of the skin is the first must thing to do. For that we take bath everyday. There are a vast variety of cleansers available in the market nowadays. One can choose the best suited for one's skin type. Cleaning the skin doesn't mean just cleaning one's face. Though face is the ultimate reflection of one' personality but one should keep the overall skin clean by using good body wash depending on the skin type and climate conditions as a moisturizing soap wont turn good in humidity or in rains, medicated soaps are good options to use in heat and rains.
Now comes the cleaning of the face. Dirt, make up traces and pollution have their first impact on the facial skin. If ignored they can damage the skin's upper layer badly. That's the reason skin cleaning has been given so much importance. So when starting up the cleaning procedure one should clean the hands first as if hands are dirty they will put more dirt and germs on the face and the skin will break out in pimples, acne and boils.
Then should clean the face and neck with a good quality mild cleanser depending on your skin type as cream based for dry skin, gel based for oily skin and mild for sensitive skin. Different cleansers have different ways of cleansing. Soap based have to be applied on face with palms in foam and then washed whereas many other liquid cleansers should be taken on a cotton dab and then the washed face should be wiped off with them. They clean the pores in a better way then only with the soap. http://www.beautytips.ayurvediccure.com/skin-care/basic-skin-care.htm
