Washing the face at bedtime is particularly important because going to bed with residue on the face such as dirt, dead skin cells, bacteria, and sebum can worsen skin conditions. ... Rough washcloths, exfoliating scrubs, or abrasive pads can aggravate the skin and cause acne or rosacea flare-ups.
Eye makeup is an absolute must to remove. There are many glands around the eyelids and eyelashes. Wearing makeup overnight can clog and inflame the delicate glands and skin around the eyes. The result? Irritated, red, and sometimes puffy eyes. Best to remove all traces of eye makeup before bed every night.
Your nightly wash is a chance to treat the skin There are several types of face washes that are medicated, so it’s a quick way to treat the skin. A favorite of mine is a benzoyl peroxide cleanser for acne-prone skin. Benzoyl peroxide is a potent acne-fighter, but it can be seriously drying for many women. By using it in a cleanser instead of a leave-on lotion, the skin gets the benefits of benzoyl peroxide without irritating side effects.
