Washing your face
Many people use a separate facial soap just to clean their face. This is usually short and quick. The soap container will usually tell you how much to use to wash your face. If it does not tell you, just use maybe a little less than a quarter-size amount. Rub the soap between your palms to get it a bit lathered up, and then rub your palm and finger on your face to soap up your face. Remember to get your whole face – forehead, nose, cheeks, chin, and everywhere in-between. Avoid your eyes, nostrils, and lips. You may want to close your eyes while you wash your face.
Rinse it off
If you are comfortable doing so, stick your face into the stream of water and rub a little with your hands to rinse off both your face and your hands. If you are not comfortable doing that, you can rinse just your hands off and wipe the soap off your face with your wet hands. If you do it that way, you will need to rinse your hands and wipe your face several times to get all the soap off. Remember to rinse around the edges of your face, including below your jaw and around your ears.
