The confusion ends here.

Whether you're a skin care junkie or a lazy girl who just wants to sleep in, it's no secret that washing your face is a huge must not just for great skin, but for hygienic purposes, too. While we all know the importance of washing one's face, how often one should really wash her face is still up for discussion. Some wash their face twice a day, others skip the morning rinse and opt for a night wash only while Kendall Jenner washes her face this much! So to get rid of any confusion when it comes to face washing, we asked a dermatologist to take the guesswork out of the most important step to your skin care routine. Read up and be on your way to great skin, Candy Girls!

Q: How often should I really wash my face?

Dr. Rhoda: If you're washing your face twice a day, then you're already on the right track. But different people have different schedules and activities and some are exposed to more dirt, which in turn requires you to increase your face washing. So if you're constantly out under the sun, in the streets, or have oily skin, you can increase your face washing to up to three times a day with a mild facial wash, of course.

She is currently a member of the Philippine Society in Anti-Obesity, a board director of PAAMMI, and is the CEO of EliteAsia Aesthetics Center.

The Rebecca Bloomwood of Manila. I spend half of my time obsessing about the latest fashion craze, and the other half overthinking and over-analyzing just about anything under the sun. When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
