You need to use a special kind of soap on your face. No, you can't just splash with water because of the oil in your skin that mixes with dirt. You do want people to kiss your clean face right? Get a soap bar made with Glycerin that does the job for your face without being too harsh. There are anti pimple varieties if you need them but just keeping your face clean should do the job. Try and prefer the fragrance free kind so you can focus on the right amount of scent overall and keep toxic chemicals off your body. Keep it dry and cool after using it because it isn't as durable as regular soap.
