This subject should be non-negotiable, sacred, cherished, embraced, you name it.. But because it’s a very vital process in order to optimize your beauty game, we have to keep reminding our dear readers of its significance; washing your face every single night and 6 reasons why you should not underestimate it..
1 || Nighttime is the only time when our skin repairs itself, and when we leave our makeup on, we prevent that repair from happening..
2 || Washing our faces literally lets our skin breathe, otherwise it will be suffocated. Washing off makeup and debris allows our skin to soak up more oxygen when it’s clean..
3 || Beauty products and creams usually get absorbed at a good rate during the day, but when we’re asleep, clean skin can absorb up to 60-percent more nutrients from serums and moisturizers, essentially making them work better.
4 || Cleansing once is crucial, but if you double cleanse -which means oil based cleansing followed by water based cleansing- is a must for removing all of the dirt, oil and pollution from your skin..
5 || If your pores are tight, incorporate steam while you cleanse because it helps to open them up and soften skin. Once you’re done, apply a product with an anti-aging powerhouse like retinol. Talk about cell regeneration..
6 || Avoid acne from developing, (yes you will get a pimple just after one night of unwashing), when you leave your makeup on too long your pores will get clogs and that can lead to large pores, acne, rashes, and irritated skin. That can also cause our skin to feel rough and uneven.
7 || When you don’t remove eye shadow, or mascara, it is possible that you may touch or rub your eyes while you sleep, and that can cause your lashes to break and become brittle. It can also cause some eye irritations and possible infections.
