Be honest, how long do you spend cleansing your face? Be it with a scrub, a wipe, a cloth and cleanser? We’d be willing to hazards a guess that you do the washing part for just long enough to feel like you went over your whole face, MAYBE your neck if you’re super conscientious, and that’s where you stop. Well, we’ve got news for you…you should be cleansing your face for a MINIMUM of one minutes.
