The Importance of Washing Your Face at Night
BE HONEST……Do you wash your face at night before bedtime?
Sometimes the last thing you want to do at night is wash your face after a long, exhausting day.
Here are a few great reasons why you should!
- Touching your face during the day with dirty hands makes your face one of the dirtiest parts of your body.
- Cleansing your skin at night will help reduce the spread of bacteria. Less bacteria means less breakouts.
- Did you know that skin repairs itself at night? Clean skin is the perfect palette for applying your night time regimen. Products like retinoids, retinols, and serums work best at night.
- When you keep your skin clean and healthy it functions normally. When you don’t, it becomes dirty, oily, and you may notice it has a rough texture. Skin that isn’t kept clean will also become dehydrated because of the lack of water and moisture. Dehydration makes fine lines and wrinkles become more pronounced and noticeable.
So remember this next time you are contemplating not washing your face before bed. Just do it…your skin will thank you!
