can you wash your face with just water?

Recommended Posts


I was wondering if I could wash my face with water instead of using a face wash. Mainly because the skin around my eyes is very sensitive, and whenever I use a face wash, it tends to over-dry and over-irritate the area around my eye.

Is it ok to just watch my face with water? has anyone tried this?


EDIT: I think I will just try using water. I'm already using cetaphil, which to my knowledge is the gentlest cleasner available. And it seems too difficult to avoid the eye area when washing.

I would just go for it. Your skin might take a few weeks to get used to the change, but you never need more than just water unless you have been putting on makeup or something that is hard to wash off.
