According to Dr, Judy Joo, the reverse face wash method is the best way to reduce damage to the skin. This method involves cleaning the T-zone (the oiliest area) first, followed by the forehead, chin, and finally the cheeks (the driest area). It is suitable for various skin types, including combination, normal, and dry skin.

Benefits of the reverse face wash method

Cleaning the skin is an essential part of daily skincare. By following the reverse face wash method, you can limit damage and prevent negative skin problems. Washing the cheeks first can lead to dryness and wrinkles, especially in the already dry cheek area. This method can help reverse dark spots, pigmentation, and freckles without relying heavily on cosmetics.

Here is the step-by-step process for the reverse face wash method:

  • Step 1: Clean the T-zone (nose) first, as it produces the most sebum. Gently massage and cleanse the area to inhibit blackhead growth.
  • Step 2: Clean the forehead area to reduce acne and blemishes caused by contact with hair and hands.
  • Step 3: Pay attention to cleaning the chin, as it is prone to acne during hormonal changes.
  • Step 4: Finally, clean the cheeks, massaging lightly to avoid dryness.

If you want to be more thorough, count from 1 to 20 in your head while cleaning each area of the skin.

Above are the recommendations from Bach Khoa GREEN for washing your face to effectively limit dark spots. Hopefully, you will take note of these tips and avoid making mistakes in your skincare routine!
