Step-by-Step Face Cleansing

5. Rinse your face completely and pat it dry.
Rinse your face with lukewarm running water thoroughly. Although trusted acne products have easy-rinse formulations, it is best to ensure that you thoroughly wash your face of any trace of foam or lather. Not doing so might leave residues behind that can block your pores and aggravate your acne. After rinsing the cleanser off, use a soft, clean towel to dry your face. Never rub the towel on your face as though you are removing stubborn dirt. Just pat it dry with a non-abrasive towel.

6. Use a special toner and moisturizer.
If you are using a skin care system, you could follow this cleansing ritual with a special toner and moisturizer. Remember that when choosing a toner and a moisturizer, you should go for the ones that are compatible with your cleanser and your skin. However, if you are using a skin care system where all acne products come in one single box, product incompatibility should not be a problem.
