I think we all know we SHOULD be #washing our #face and using #skincare #products morning and night. But why?
Why should I make myself crawl out of my cozy bed to go wash my face?? I’ll give you 3 reasons!
1. #Removes #BuildUp Throughout the day the #skin on your face is continually covered with bacteria, pollutants, viruses, dirt, and old (dead) skin #cells . Daily face washing removes these #impurities to give the skin a #fresh look. Without washing, your skin would be covered with a thick layer of dirt and grime which make it difficult for other products to penetrate the skin properly.
2. #Boosts #Hydration Regular facial #cleansing (along with the use of a good #moisturizer ) is also an #important factor in helping the skin #maintain a proper level of hydration. Dehydrated skin looks and feels rough, wrinkled and aged. Cleansing helps manage PH levels of the skin enabling sufficient water and product #retention .
3. Maintaining #Clear Skin Tiny glands under the skin produce oil called #sebum to #protect the skin from the dangers of the outside world. These glands use hair #follicles within the skin as a pathway, allowing the oil to reach the skin’s surface (outer layer) to form a #barrier that prevents the penetration of bacteria or other harmful agents.
Excessive dirt build up on the surface can cause blockages of the follicle, trapping sebum, sweat, and dead skin cells. The lack of sebum on the skin’s surface allows bacteria to penetrate the follicle causing inflammation. The final result is acne. Proper skin cleansing clears pores of debris to prevent dirt buildup, allowing the sebum oil to reach the skin surface unimpeded decreasing the chances of a breakout.
Washing our face daily allows our skin to look #healthy and #radiant by keeping it hydrated and preventing an overproduction of oil! And face it, we’re not getting any #younger . Learning this is enough to get me out of bed in the morning and at night- what about you!?
