Brushing, showering, and CTM (cleansing, toning, moisturising) may already be on your list of twice-daily activities. Even though many of us recognize the importance of brushing our teeth and cleansing our faces first thing in the morning and night, some people still fail to do so.
Most people skip this important skincare ritual for a variety of reasons, including exhaustion and boredom. Simply being tired or bored at the end of the day may make the entire process of cleansing and moisturising the face appear tedious.
So, here are six reasons why you should always wash and cleanse your face before bedtime.
1. Remove the Dirt and Debris
This is a no-brainer, but it is crucial. The skin’s surface accumulates dead skin cells, oil, bacteria, sweat, and other debris throughout the day. Particulate pollution is microscopic soot in the air that settles on the skin during the day and can be harmful. Consider using a washcloth or a gentle sonic cleansing brush to remove the grime mixture thoroughly.
2. Reduce Acne
After touching it all day and exposing it to dirt and pollution, your face is one of the dirtiest parts of your body. Regardless of your skin type, unclean facial skin is more likely to develop clogged pores, which can lead directly to breakouts. Remember that washing your face with a face wash at night entails more than simply rinsing it with water. Allow enough time to remove your makeup, clean your face, and apply a moisturiser.
3.To Remove Makeup
Before going to sleep, it is essential to remove makeup to prevent clogged pores, which can cause acne and skin problems. You can remove your makeup with a good makeup remover or with petroleum jelly. Simply apply a small amount of petroleum jelly or makeup remover to a cotton pad and gently wipe away your makeup. One study found that our skin absorbs up to 60% of the chemicals in products that can clog our pores. So, regardless of how tired you are, always remove your makeup before going to bed.
4. Avoid Dry and Dehydrated Skin
To repair itself, our skin requires oxygen. Sleeping with makeup on depleted your skin of this essential nutrient. Our bodies produce fewer oils during the sleep cycle. If you don’t moisturise your skin before going to bed, it will feel drier throughout the day, causing redness and irritation.
5. Avoid Damaging Your Eyes
Persistent eye makeup can migrate into your eyes and irritate you while you sleep. If you sleep with your eye makeup on, the hair follicles and oil glands may become clogged, resulting in a buildup of bacteria. This can result in inflammation as well as styles or hordeolum. When washing your face at night, take special care to remove any traces of eye makeup.
6. Your Linens Will Stay Cleaner
Nobody wants soiled makeup stains on their pillowcases. It not only looks bad but the pollution and impurities from your day will follow you to bed if you don’t wash your face before bed. Remember that you will be exposing your skin to the impurities left on your pillowcase from the previous night every night.
Over to You
Keeping your skin healthy is essential if you want it to stay fresh and glowing. Washing your face before bed has its own set of advantages. Follow the steps above precisely to exfoliate all dirt particles and make your skin shine like never before.
