How to wash your face at night

We both know that washing our faces daily is important but life can sometimes get in the way. But while it is understandable there are repercussions if you don’t wash off the dirt and grime at the end of each day.

Imagine all the sunscreen, dirt and pollution of daily life on your skin while you sleep. Ugh, that is a recipe for breakouts and dull skin. Here are 5 reasons your skin needs to be clean at the end of each day.

Reduce acne and Breakouts

After exposing your skin to dirt, pollution and a layer of sunscreen ( I hope), your skin is dirty at the end of the day. Unclean skin is more likely to have clogged pores which can lead directly to breakouts, no matter what your skin type.

Prevent Wrinkles

Your skin is exposed to free radicals during the day which can hinder collagen production. Washing your face removes the residue allowing your skin to recover especially if you use the right skincare products after washing your face. Sleeping with makeup can lead to oxidative damage, accelerating the ageing process.

Maximize Products Absorption

While you sleep your skin works to repair and restore itself, these efforts are maximized when your skin isn’t fighting off the pollution from the day. Since there is less damage control, the moisturizer you apply may be more effective in aiding restoration.

The effects of your skincare will not last all day applying skincare products in the evening gives your skin another chance to be exposed to effective skincare products. In addition, some of the most effective products work better at night.

Avoid dehydrated skin

Skin loses a good amount of moisture during the day and washing your face at the end of each day ensures that you put the moisture back into your skin. Dehydrated skin is less resilient more prone and more prone to ageing If you moisturize your skin at night it will be less prone to redness and irritation.

How to wash your face

The best way to clean your face at night is by double cleansing. Here you wash your face twice, first with an oil cleanser and then with a water-based cleanser.
