We hear it over and over again: NEVER go to bed without washing your face. Cleansing off that makeup, bacteria, and everything else that built up on your skin throughout the day is SO important to keep your skin clear! But, are you skipping an important morning step to keep your skin healthy and glowing? Here’s why you need to wash your face each morning:
If you cleanse your face just before bed, wake up in the morning, and start applying your makeup – no biggie, right?? Wrong! While you’re sleeping, your skin is working overtime to slough off dead skin cells. And, let’s not forget your pillowcase that collects bacteria, sweat, and who-knows-what else each night…Unless you’re replacing your pillowcase EVERY time you lay on it, that pore-clogging bacteria is making its way into your skin. UGH. Following your skin care regimen step by step, like blogger Aubrey Kinch does, will keep your skin happy!
Dirt and bacteria aside, when you wash your face each morning you’re also prepping a blank canvas (so to speak) for your daytime skin care products. Last night’s products – your heavier serums and moisturizers – aren’t enough to keep your skin glowing all day long. Start fresh and rebalance your skin’s pH levels to absorb your daytime products!
My skin doesn’t feel clean until I cleanse my face twice a day – I use my teeth-brushing as a reminder! I start by removing my makeup with the Magic Mitt from jane iredale, then continue my skin care regimen. Enza Essentials’ Sustaining Cleanser smells great and leaves my skin oh-so-smooth and clean without leaving my skin dry in the colder months!
*SKINTIP: Whether you cleanse your face in the shower or at the sink, be sure to use lukewarm water. Too-hot H2O can dry out your skin and leave it irritated!
