The Most Important Time To Wash Your Face? Right Before Bed!


Who would have thunk it? I always thought that the morning would be the most important scrub but Prevention.com says right before you hit the sack, give your face a good scrub.

The most important time to wash your face is before you hit the sack,” says Doris Day, MD, a New York City-based dermatologist. Dirt, bacteria, and makeup left on overnight can irritate skin, clog pores, and trigger breakouts. Remove this top layer of grime with a gentle face wash (skin should feel pleasantly tight for 10 to 15 minutes post-cleansing), which also allows anti-agers to penetrate deeper for better results. Because oil production dips with hormonal changes in your 40s, cleansing twice daily can dry out your complexion and make wrinkles look more pronounced. To refresh skin in the morning, splash with lukewarm water.
