All day long your skin is bombarded with potentially damaging elements. Elements that caused clogged pores, inflammation, accelerated aging and even styes. Styes are not pretty. Why would you ever dream about taking the dirt and grime of the day to bed with you? A proper night-time face wash is imperative to your skin's health. And here are four important reasons why:
- Rid yourself of free radicals. If you wear makeup, it acts as a magnet for free radicals throughout the day. These free radicals nestle in and break down healthy collagen. Savor your collagen and wash your face at night to promote better rest and rejuvenation.
- Clear skin is clean skin. Combat acne-causing bacteria but starting with a clean slate when you lay your head on the pillow. Did you know the average person touches their face more than 2,000 times per day? Yeah, that's not clean.
- Restore and repair. Nighttime is when your skin heals and repairs. New skin cells grow faster when you sleep. This process can happen the way nature intended when your face is clean ready for rest.
- Rehydrate like a champ. You loose more water when you sleep. If you have cleansed and moisturized before bed, then your moisturizer is can do it's job and help your skin rehydrate during your slumber.
Now let's talk benefits! Properly cleansing your face before bed will:
- Help maintain your beautiful healthy skin
- Promote collagen building
- Allow for healthy new cell growth
- Reduce further damage of the skin
- Reduce inflammation, breakouts, clogged pores
- Improve the effectiveness of your moisturizer and serum for a night of hydration
- Restore soft supple youthful skin
- Prevent early onset of wrinkles
It's time to make your night-time self-love practice a priority. Your skin will thank you for years to come.
Here's an easy-to-follow night-time routine:
- Remove makeup, and the pollutants of the day, with 3 pumps of Rain Replenishing Oil Cleanse
