Wash face, hands, and feet sparingly
We can only wash our face, hands, and feet sparingly, as a result, if you wash the face, hands, and feet too much, then skin allergy can occur.
Wash your face, hands, and feet with lukewarm water and normal strength soap. Use a mild soap that won’t sting your skin, such as Ivory or Dove. If you have any type of skin condition, it is not good to wash the face with a soap that is too strong.
Wash the skin with your hand for up to two hours, depending on the time when you wash your skin. Use your fingers or a cotton ball to apply the water from the shower to the skin, and avoid getting the shower on your eyes and around your ears.
