Cleansing your face before bed is one of the cardinal rules for maintaining healthy skin. Now, I am guilty of forgetting to cleanse before retreating to slumber on occasion and I've rationalised by thinking it's not a big deal. However the effects of not having a clean face before bedtime are actually significant.
And here's why you need to cleanse:
Cleansing your face morning and night is essential to maintain a healthy glow, but you need to do it right, and you need to do it regularly. Late night excuses not withstanding!
Proper cleansing gives the following benefits:
+ allows dirt and old surface skin cells to be removed
+ enables all that makeup grime and bacteria to be dissolved
+ allows the skin to breathe properly and freely
+ promotes good circulation for your face (aka a healthy glow to your cheeks)
+ permits the skin to properly benefit from toning and moisturising
+ use warm water and a gentle plant-based cream cleanser such as ourCastille Cream Cleanser
+ gently massage your face using circular motions
+ remove with a warm-water-soaked cotton muslin facecloth to remove excess water (you can get your muslin cloth here)
+ finish with a toner to and then lock in moisture with your favouritemoisturiser
