How can I stop my brother from washing his face too much?

How can I stop my brother from washing his face too much?

You can't: Either he enjoys doing this, or he has obsessive-compulsive disorder. If it bothers him, read up on this and ask, "Hey Bro, does it bother you having to wash your face so much? Here's something you might want to read. I love you regardless and maybe you can talk with your physician about this, but only if you want to." That's being a GREAT brother. ...Read more

Washing daily: Common sense wins the day! wash daily with a non- soap cleanser so you don't rip off the good oils your skin naturally makes. Use a moisturizer you like, that smells good, to seal in the water on your skin. If you get dirty or work out, do it again! ...Read more

What is the most ideal frequency of washing your face?

What is the most ideal frequency of washing your face?

Never: My own insight is that the face be rinsed to get dust off but, absent obvious grime, soap is not indicated. The reason is that the facial skin secretes oils with antibacterial qualities. I wonder if we are only species with a social habit of face washing. The most beautiful facial skin i ever saw was a german woman who threw cold water on her face each morning. ...Read more
