Your Makeup that is….take it off, every night.
Keep your pillow clean, that’s obvious. But did you know that those makeup stains on your pillow will become a breeding ground for bacteria growth? And that bacteria will infect your skin and cause breakouts.
Did you also know that your makeup is absorbing residue from the environment during the day? Makeup absorbs dirt and pollution. Remove your makeup so your skin can breathe at night. Clogged pores prevent the skin from repairing itself at night. Our skin needs all the oxygen it can get. If you don’t want dull, dry looking skin then don’t suffocate your skin.
To remove your eye makeup use a cleansing wipe (I recommend Garnier). Use Obagi Foaming Gel or Clinicians Complex Foaming Gel Cleanser (for those who have oily skin) to cleanser your entire face. If you have dry skin then you want to use more of a cream product like Obagi Gentle Cleanser.
For a deep clean these products can be used with the Clarisonic Facial Cleansing Brush.
For you younger ladies out there, who might still be trying to impress a gentleman caller go to bed later and wake up earlier…but always remove your makeup at night. Your skin will thank you when you’re my age!
