Cleanse to Reset: How to Reset Your Skin by Building a Cleansing Routine

by JeeSehee on Apr 05, 2023

Think of skin reset as hitting the refresh button on a keyboard.

SKIN RESET is about helping the skin to find its way back to a neutral state that is balanced, healthy and hydrated when in the state of distress. Instead of piling on more skincare products hoping for a change, appropriate cleansing can be a solution to reset. Through discovering your own cleansing routine that suits your skin's condition, you can reset and restore.

Follow the flowchart below to find out which skin reset you need, and how to cleanse your skin using By Wishtrend's Green Tea & Enzyme Wash duo.

Flowchart to find a skin cleansing routine

💧MOISTFUL RESET for dry skin

Only cleanse with water in the morning (if you haven’t sweated). At night, cleanse with Green Tea & Enzyme Milky Foaming Wash to keep the skin moisturized. When in need of exfoliation, use Green Tea & Enzyme Powder Wash not more than 1~2 times a week, and mix it with water in a powder & water ratio of 3:7 for a gentler foam.

Little tip to make the cleanser even more safe for your dry, sensitive skin is to first lather the gel with a bit of water on your hands to create the foam and then massage your face with the foam. That way, you can minimize friction & avoid possibly sensitizing your skin.

🌦️  BALANCED RESET for combo skin

In the morning, cleanse with Green Tea & Enzyme Milky Foaming Wash, but focus more on the oily areas and only lightly wash the dry areas to avoid overstripping. At night, while using Milky Foaming Wash as the default cleanser, regularly exfoliate the oily areas with Green Tea & Enzyme Powder Wash about 2 times a week with a powder & water ratio of 3:7 or 5:5 to regulate sebum production.

Always carefully monitor how your skin is feeling, and either scale back or add more exfoliation to your routine. 

🍦LIGHT & SOFT RESET for oily skin


In the morning, give the skin an overall cleanse with Green Tea & Enzyme Milky Foaming Wash to control excess sebum. Depending on your condition or if you are in a situation where you need a good base for your makeup, using Powder Was in the morning is also a good idea.

At night, use a regular cleanser as a default, but regularly exfoliate with Green Tea & Enzyme Powder Wash for about 3~4 times a week with powder & water ratio of 5:5 or 7:3.

Again, scale back the frequency if it feels like too much exfoliation for your skin. 

🤍GENTLE RESET for acne-prone skin

For both day & night, be gentle on the skin by cleansing with Green Tea & Enzyme Milky Foaming Wash to avoid worsening the breakouts. Minimize unnecessary friction and touching by lathering up the gel in your hands first before going into the face.

Same thing when exfoliating using the Green Tea & Enzyme Powder Wash, foam up first in the hands by mixing powder & water in a 3:7 ratio. Keep the exfoliation about 3 times a week, depending on the severity of acne and what kind of acne treatments you are using.
