The Most Critical Step in Your Nightly Beauty Routine
Skipping makeup removal before laying your pretty heads to rest is one of the biggest NO NO’s in any beauty routine. A fresh cleanse before sleep is the foundation for glowing skin. Before you hit the sheets to rest your tired bones, be sure to give your skin the same opportunity. When you cleanse before sleep, not only do you clear makeup oils and residue from your skin, but environmental pollutants as well.
Cleansing Rids Your Skin of Unwelcome Overnight Guests
All these forms of debris and pollutants have used your face as a playground all day long, and nighttime is the perfect opportunity to show these unwelcome guest the exit! Cosmopolitan noted “Particles from car exhaust, smoke, and industrial pollution gather onto your skin throughout the day. If you don’t get them off, this chain reaction of oxidative stress (like pre-mature aging and increased sensitivity) continues right on through the night. Sure, some parts of the country are less polluted than others, but still, “it’s one earth,” says Pardo. “The winds blow and eventually it gets everywhere.” Interestingly, makeup can actually absorb some of these particles, as can sunscreen. Even more of a reason to wash it all away before you get into bed.
Of course, the debris and clogged pores prevent your skin from breathing while you rest, which can lead to acne, blackheads, and a dull, tired complexion.
So be good to your skin tonight, and your skin will be good to you!
