How Often Should You Wash Your Face? 5 Ways To Decide


“If you’re doing a lot of exercise, perhaps you wash your face three times a day, regardless of your skin type,” board-certified dermatologist Jeanine Downie, M.D., explains. That is, once in the morning, again post-workout, and again in the evening. It varies a smidgen depending on what time of day you exercise (i.e., if you hit the gym in the late evening, you can dive straight into your evening routine post-sweat), but a midday workout may require an extra wash—especially if you need to remove makeup. 

You don’t necessarily need a clarifying cleanser each time (“your skin may be more vulnerable to irritation shortly after a workout, as your pores are open,” board-certified dermatologist Keira Barr, M.D., previously told us); just a gentle face wash will do post-sweat.
