You can wash your face three to four times a day, but only twice using cleanser, which will help to cleanse the skin effectively and limit the skin dryness or dehydration. In some cases, you should only wash your face once a day: for example, when the skin is peeling or when the skin is allergic to cosmetics. But remember, if you only wash your face once a day, use facial cleanser in the evening, because this is the time when the skin is the dirty and needs cleaning.
