Here we start with the skin types and how many times to wash face for it;
Those who have oily skin must be more precarious towards its care. This type of skin is prone more to grime and dirt because the pores release oil, and dirt gets into them. This leads to the oily or you can say greasy look. Such a skin must be washed twice a day, in case the oil secretion is more, then it can be three times too. You should always use a good quality face wash which is particularly made to deal with such a skin. Also, you should choose the products which are oil free; for example, the lotions, moisturizers and even the make-up products must be oil free. Also, try to keep the hours balanced between the first wash and the last one. What you can do it was your face in the morning, then evening and lastly before planning to go to the bed. Also, in you feel that oil is coming out of the pores during the other times; you can wipe it with quality toner.
People with normal skin must wash their face two times a day. You can use cold water to wash their face and also use mild face wash for the skin. The wash timings should be in the morning and then before the bed. Also, you can use some mild lotion or cream after patting the washed face with a towel.
Those who wash the face too many times without taking into consideration that their skin is dry; this leads to cracking. Later, they also complain about skin peeling. The cleaner is not really advised for this particular group, but cold water washes would make a difference. Also, there are a few moisturizers that are specifically made for dry skin, so applying them would make the skin soft and smooth.
