Why is it important to wash your face?

We all wash our faces in the morning but are we taking care of our faces at night before going to bed? 

Here are the reasons why you should wash your face in the evening: 

  1. Washing you face removes makeup and dirt that clogs your pores and cause enlarged pores or acne. 
  2. Washing your face removes dead skin cells allowing your face to breath and exfoliate naturally so your skin looks healthier and brighter. 
  3. Washing your face removes mascara and eyeshadow that can irritate your eyes and cause short brittle eyelashes. 
  4. Washing your face removes the accumulated skin oil that Demodex mites feed on. The Demodex mite is found naturally in small numbers inside our skin pores. It causes pimples and uneven textured dull skin. 

So don't delay washing your face until late at night. Wash it as soon as you go back home from work and apply a good moisturizer on your face afterward to prevent drying.
