Do you usually wash your face early in the evening--for example right after work?

Or do you wash it later in the evening--such as right before bed?

Why did you choose to wash your face at the time that you chose?

Convenience, habit, just feels right to me to do it then.

I wash my face in the morning before going to work, after which I apply moisturizer and whatever on my face. My face has to be clean first before I put any make-up, otherwise, I will clog pores which is also not good for my skin.

In between or during the time, I don't do nothing.

In the evening, I wash my face because I need to remove my make-up. I would like my skin to breathe because at night time, this is the time that the skin renew itself. I put whatever cream I need to put on my face before bedtime.
If I don't clean my face at night, I will break-out in the morning for sure. My skin will be dull and very oily from the day before which is not good for my skin...

On days that I work, I wash it slightly closer to bedtime. On days when I'm off (and don't have anywhere to be) I do it earlier.

Why? I have no idea. That's just the way I've always done it. Laughing

As far as mornings go, I
-wake up
-do a little yoga
-cleanse my face with OCM+Tanaka massage before hoping in the shower

So in the mornings, it's pretty immediate. I guess because it's my routine. Idk.

Twice a day, usually. At night I use OCM before showering, and soap on an exfoliating cloth. I sometimes take another shower later in the day, around noon, and if I've worn makeup or done something sweaty, I wash my face again, otherwise just rinse with water and reapply moisturiser.

This is something I wonder about as well. I wash in the morning, before I wake up, and about 1-2 hours before I go to bed (so I can work in all those topicals that require me to wait 30 minutes before layering). sometimes i worry about too much washing throwing the oil balance off. But I usually use a gentle cleanser and I tend to believe it's better to risk drying out my skin than risk breaking out from leaving makeup on too long.

I wash my face way too much Sad.
I wash my face in the morning (to wash off all the retin-a) then put my cream and my sunblock. Then I'm off to the pool and after swimming I wash my face again to get rid of the chlorine, and then I put my cream, sunblock, and makeup. After that (hours later), I'll wash my face again for yoga, and after yoga, I'll wash my face again when I get home.
So in total, I wash my face almost 4 times a day (this does not include swishing my face in the pool for 1 hr)....:S

I don't swim professionally but I do enjoy swimming -- was on the swim team back when I was in highschool. My L5/S1 joint disc space is severely narrowed so my GP recommended me to swim and swimming has helped my back a lot. I now swim one hour non-stop each morning in a lap-pool before work. As much as I love the pool and swimming, it's really taking a toll on my skin. But it's either breaking out or suffering from back pain... *sigh

syndi2222,

It sounds like it's the chlorine.

Have you tried swimming in shallow lakes/ponds?

I live in Canada and the closest lake for me is lake Ontario Sad. Whenever I do get the chance to go up north I do swim in smaller lakes.
I used to live beside the beaches in the tropics and would surf/swim/dive/snorkel A LOT. That killed my skin the most :S But it was amazing!
But yeah... the chlorine is definitely not helping. I can smell chlorine on my skin (even after showering) for several hours till I do hot yoga where I'm sweating out of every pore in my body. This is a lose lose situation for me... *facepalm

I wash my face with water only in the morning.

At night, I wash my face just before I go to
sleep.

I wash in the morning (in the shower) with my Clarisonic and Image Total cleanser. I wash at night with a warm wet baby wash cloth and warm water. I only wear Jane Iredale powder makeup, Jane eyeshadow, eye liner and mascara so there isn't much to take off.
