Are you too “busy” to wash your face at the end of the day? Are you embarrassed to take off your makeup in front of your new boyfriend so you just sleep in it? Did you pass out after a night of dancing at the club and just forget to cleanse? Hey I don’t judge, I have had so many clients tell me they routinely skip their nighttime cleansing. However, this is one habit I highly suggest breaking. Here are my top three reasons why you should wash your face at the end of each day:
1. Get rid of dirt, debris and make-up.
This will help prevent clogging of the pores, sensitivity and dehydration. Even if you do not wear makeup, dirt and bacteria still need to be removed.
2. Treatment products can penetrate into the skin
Our skin cells are regenerating fastest while we sleep which is why we treat our skin with all of the highly potent ingredients at night. Cleanse the skin and then apply products to target which ever area of concern you may have.
3. Avoid breakouts
This is common sense people, but if you do not wash your skin, bacteria will spread and you can get acne breakouts. Period. Include washing, treating and moisturizing your face and neck into your routine just like brushing your teeth.
