1. POLLUTIONS - Washing your face removes not only makeup, but the dirt and dust that your face accumulated throughout the day. Makeup clogs your pores and is filled with all the outside elements from the day like dirt, dust, smoke, etc. Make-up acts like a magnet and therefor they attach to your face and cannot leave until you wash your face.

2. MAKEUP - When you leave your makeup on too long your pores will get clogs and that can lead to large pores, acne, rashes, and irritated skin. Leaving your makeup on while you sleep can also cause your skin to feel rough and uneven.

3. EYELASHES - When you don’t remove eye shadow, or mascara, it is possible that you may touch or rub your eyes while you sleep, and that can cause your lashes to break and become brittle. It can also cause some eye irritations and possible infections.

4. SKIN - Your face needs to exfoliate naturally by shedding the dead skin, but if your makeup is left on your face, it does not allow that to happen. That can cause a dull appearance, or flaky dry skin that is uneven on your face.  Your skin repairs itself at night and clean skin can absorb skincare products better. Don’t forget that moisturizer! Always apply your clinical products after you wash your face.

If you’re too tired to wash your face before you go to bed, just wash your face right when you get home from work so you don’t wind down and become too tired and forget.


Do’s and Don’ts of washing your face:

Do gently apply your facial cleanser.

Don’t scrub your face with a washcloth, mesh sponge, or any other rough material. Rubbing your face may irritate your skin and worsen your acne.

Do Use lukewarm water to rinse your face

Don’t use hot or cold water. Cold water is never fun and hot water can irritate your skin.
