4. Use a Gentle Touch
While thorough cleansing and exfoliation are vital to healthy skin, rough treatment is not called for. Use a gentle touch, especially on your face. If you are too rough in handling your skin you may actually bruise it.
If you are using an exfoliating scrub, there is no need to grind the product down into your pores. Administer any cleansing or exfoliation with a gentle touch and allow your products or washcloth to do the work.
