I recently had a thought. With working such long days, sometimes I come home and I want to immediately hop in the bed and go to sleep, but wait… I have to wash my face! Now when you all are in that situation, what do you do? Be honest! You go to sleep, don’t you? If you do, it may feel great to your body, but trust me, your skin will not be too happy. Why?
5 Reasons to Wash your Face at Night
1. Between touching your face throughout the day and being exposed to elements in the air, your face may be one of the dirtiest parts of your body by nightfall. Washing your face will help prevent blemishes that could occur from dirt harbored in your skin.
2. Do you have oily skin? Washing your face at night can reduce oil on your face and help prevent blemishes from oil and dirt trapped in your pores.
3. Your skin repairs itself at night. Washing away makeup and dirt can allow your skin to breathe and repair itself naturally.
5. There are night moisturizers that aid in skin rejuvenation at night so your skin has the opportunity to improve while you are sleeping.
Taking care of your skin at night can produce faster cell turnover and really brighten the skin. The great part about taking care of your skin at night is that oftentimes you can use the same skin routine both day and night. For those with problem areas, there are moisturizers like Clinique’s Super Rescue Antioxidant Night Moisturizer or Timewise Night Restore & Recover Complex that can help awaken and rejuvenate skin while you sleep.
So, the big question is…
Will you wash your face at night?
