With the weather heating up and our faces getting a little sweatier, you may be compensating with an extra-stringent skincare regime.
But experts say while it may seem like overdoing it on the cleanser is the best way to counter acne-causing sweat and bacteria, you may actually be doing more harm than good.
A-list facialist and skincare brand founder Kate Somerville told The Sun: "If your skin is oily or acne-prone, choose a cleanser with salicylic acid and only cleanse once a day. You don't want to dry out or irritate your skin."
It's a sentiment echoed by Athena Hewett, founder of skincare brand Monastery. She says if you begin the day with a vigorous face wash it may be time to place the bottle down - a morning cleanse is actually unnecessary.
She told Allure: "There isn't a need to rewash our face in the morning as there isn't anything to remove such as makeup or sunscreen.
"The natural oil our bodies produce is good for our skin - it provides a first defence barrier for the external factors of the day."
In the evening, a two-step double cleanse is your best method. Begin with an oil or balm cleanser to wash away sunscreen and makeup from throughout the day - and then a water-based cleanser to tackle grease and oil from those soaring temperatures.
If you have oily skin go for a gentle foaming option, and if your skin is more tight and dry, use a cream or gel.
Then let your skin produce its natural oils overnight, all ready to help you glow in the morning.
