How often should I wash my face?

Recommended Posts

Hi,
I am 20 years old and male, I have very oily skin since ever and I wonder; how often I should wash my face?
I wash it when I wake up at 7am then after university (3-4 pm) I have to wash it again, because its so oily that it would drop like water from my face :/
And then in the night (8-9pm) my skin gets oily again; should I wash it now or go to sleep and wash it in the morning ?
So short version; should I wash my face 2 times (morning + night) or 3 times  (morning+noon+night)?

Washing your face too much can actually cause your face to produce more oils. So I recommend only washing it twice a day, once in the morning once at night. Use a face wash that has at least 2% salicylic acid. Try eating less greasy foods and drink more water. Hope this helps!

I know that washing too much can cause more oily skin, but if my face is really oily couldnt it cause more pimples if I let it be oily ? I'm using the la roche possay face wash (http://www.laroche-posay.us/effaclar-gel-3337872411083.html#start=3)

I suggest no more than 3 times. Use warm or cool water not hot and also get some blotting sheets you can get them in drugstores. I personally can't stand oil on my face so I often wash 3 times I don't think it makes anything worse.
Try taking vitamin A cod liver oil is one way.
Also vitamin b 5 can help reduce oil.

Wash once a day and use 6-7 drops of joajoa oil and moisturizer on your face twice a day

women may need to remove make up.

My dermatologist told me to use face wash only twice a day (I use La Roche-Posay in the morning and evening.) He also said if you have feel your face is dirty throughout the day, just rinse w/ water.
