Washing our faces is pretty much as basic as drinking water. You simply wet your face, lather on your facial wash, and rinse. But wouldn't it be cooler if you can level up this essential step so you can effectively purge dirt and grime out of your pores in no time? Plus, when your skin is ultra clean, your skincare products, like serums and creams will get absorbed faster, making your whole skincare routine work better! Try any of these three smart cleansing methods below:
1. Use a muslin washcloth.
The texture of muslin fabric can exfoliate your skin, yet it is delicate enough not to irritate your skin's surface. Use your facial wash as you would normally use it, and wipe off the lather with a damp muslin cloth.

2. Go for lots of bubbles!
Turn your foam cleanser's regular bubbles to a rich lather similar to mousse by placing it in a foam maker. This way, the microbubbles can easily reach the inside of your pores to rid of all gunk!
Foam makers are available at Korean beauty stores and Japan discount stores.
3. Rinse with cleansing water.
Instead of splashing tap water on your face, try to wipe off your facial wash with cleansing water. Micellar waters can remove makeup, refresh the skin, and its hydrating ingredients boost your anti-aging skincare routine.
