Treating yourself once a month to rid your skin of that dead first layer doesn’t sound like a bad idea to us!
What’s the best process for a nighttime routine?
Ahh, nighttime. We relax and unwind from the day with a blanket, a furry friend, and a few of our favorite snacks. But don’t even think about crawling into bed without washing the day off your skin, no matter how many yawns you may have let out on the couch!
“A nighttime routine should include a few steps,” says Anglin. “First, make sure you cleanse your skin. You would be amazed at how much dirt and debris your skin can collect in a day from doing normal activities such as driving or working. When you sleep, your skin’s job is to regulate and recharge. If you don’t wash your face before bed, all of the day’s pollution can sink into your pores. A heavy cleanser, toner, serum, moisturizer, and a retinol-based product will help your skin do its best while you sleep.”
You hear that, skin lovers? It’s time to toss out those bad habits of going to bed without washing your face of the free radicals it came into contact with earlier in the day.
What’s the best face wash for oily skin?
If your skin is oily, you don’t want to use just any cleanser. You’ll want to stick with one that’s meant for oily skin. When finding this perfect product for you, you want to be sure that you’re not going to over cleanse — yes, that’s a real thing.
Over cleansing might sound like the most obvious way to care oily skin — duh, just wash all the oil away, problem solved! Wrong. When you over cleanse oily skin, it leaves room for more oil production since the body thinks your skin is drying out.
Be sure to find a gentle cleanser to use day and night to rid the skin of any harmful debris it came into contact with throughout the day, and to incorporate a trustworthy exfoliator in there a few times a week.
