Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology, answeredTo keep your skin clean and moist, wash with lukewarm water and a gentle cleanser formulated for your skin type (normal, combination, dry, oily, or sensitive), and apply a moisturizer daily. The type of skin you have partly determines how many times a day you should wash your face and apply moisturizer. For example, if you have dry skin, you may want to apply a moisturizer more than once a day for optimal hydration, and you may want to wash your face only at night, when it is dirtiest. By contrast, if you have oily skin, you may want to wash your face two to three times a day, and apply a very light moisturizer once a day. Note that washing your skin too often can make it even more oily.
