I love washing my face! It makes me feel so clean afterwards but my poor Daze has a stinky face sometimes and it took me awhile to understand why. I had to do some research. Shih Tzu’s will occasionally get a sour face. The reason is their nose and mouth are flat so when they drink water basically their whole face gets wet. Since they have a little dip between their eyes and nose it will make it hard for the water to dry, which will grow bacteria and causing the sour smell. I have also noticed during the week it will get really strong because she will cry when my husband and I are at work during the day. I will be talking about what I do to keep my face clean and Daze’s face clean.
Being a dental assistant I am constantly wearing a mask. The moist heat of wearing the mask would cause bacteria on my face. When I first started working as a dental assistant I would constantly break out where my mask would be. I knew I needed to start a more serious face washing routine and stick to it so I wouldn’t break out.
This is my morning products I use. Seems like a lot of work but it only takes me about 8 minutes to apply all of these.
I first use the Clarisonic to wash my face. Make sure and use enough face wash and water! And to clean your brush after every use. I use this face wash: ANTIBACTERIAL GEL WASH.
After washing my face I will apply: Dr. R. A. Eckstein Azulen Paste just on the places where I usually break out, which is on my chin and by my lips. I love this stuff because it is also tinted so it covers up breakouts.
At night I have simple routine because I am usually tired and lazy right before I go to bed. I use any type of make up removal wipes and apply: Instant Blemish Resolve just on my breakout areas.
Well Daze’s face wash routine is one simple step, kind of like my husband’s. He just washes his face in the morning in the shower and at night before bed. So lucky! For Daze I use these wipes every couple of days to keep her face from smelling terrible:BREUT (sorry I haven’t been able to find this item online.) I also give her a bath once a week to keep her smelling fresh. It is really hard to keep her face dry, it’s basically impossible because she is drinking water about every hour but keeping the bacteria under control will help her smelly face!
Look how amazing our faces look!
Take care of your face!
