Cleansing 3times a day?

I knew this is not recommended. The maximum you should wash your face is twice a day. I used cleanser in the morning since my skin is quite oily on t-zone after i woke up especially area around my nose (5.30am) After came back from work,i do double cleanse since i sweat a lot + with the mask on for 8hours/more, my working area did not hv air cond, super hot tropical weather. (5.00pm) Then once again i wash my face at night before going to sleep because my skin got oily after several hours, yah at t-zone only (11pm/12am). Do you guys have any suggestion so that i can wash my face just twice. Or should i use micellar water instead in the morning/at night?

How are you feeling now that you're cleaning 3 times a day? Do you feel that your skin is becoming reactive, easily irritated, dry, flaky or tightened?

I cleanse only twice a day. In the morning, I use a gentle cleanser. When I get home, I use micellar water or oil cleanser and toner to refresh my skin. Then it's not necessary to double cleanse at night because I already did that, so I use only a cleanser. ๐Ÿ™‚

I would go for a PM routine after you come back from work and if your T zone gets oily later and that bothers you, ust blot it off with some tissue. I think over time your skin might get compromised from cleansing too much (the most drying/stripping step) which will also lead to excessive sebum production - a vicious circle.

I usually only cleanse twice a day, including double cleanse in the evening. unless the day is very hot, in the middle of the day I would just wash my face water that's it. then evening continue to do double cleansing.
