How often should you wash your face? Skin experts explain

How often should you wash your face is one of the few beauty questions that applies to just about everyone. Young or old, man or woman, skincare obsessive or beauty skeptic, we all clean our faces on a regular basis. Or at least, we should all do so. 

In fact, cleansing your skin is up there with shampooing your hair and brushing your teeth in terms of day-to-day maintenance. It’s a nailed-on essential, however basic the rest of your regimen may be. “Cleansing is the cornerstone of all good skincare routines,” explains Fiona Brackenbury (opens in new tab), aesthetician and skin expert with 30 years of industry experience, “get it wrong and it can play havoc with your skin.”
