- Rinse off by splashing water on your face.
Using a washcloth or rag to roughly wipe your skin clean can irritate it more. Instead, bend your face over the sink, cup your hands together, and bring up small amounts of water to splash over your face. About 10 splashes should do it.
- Pat dry.
Don’t roughly rub your skin dry with a towel. Instead, dry it with small, gentle pats or let it air dry.
