glow-how: the before-bed GOLDEN RULE

Nikki Yazxhi

before bed golden rule


Letting skin marinate in makeup—not to mention a day’s worth of oil buildup—can lead to clogged pores and zits, especially if you’re prone to acne.

+ your body temperature increases slightly when you sleep, which can enhance absorption of whatever’s on the surface – so you really want only beneficial ingredients on your face when you sleep. Needless to say, before bed is the best time to apply your serums and treatments!
Experts recommend washing your face at the sink, not in the shower. {You can gauge the temperature more effectively} and should use lukewarm to cold water, which is better for delicate faces.Temperature is key: While the steamy temps we tend toward in the shower can be damaging to delicate facial skin, lukewarm water is totally fine—and a splash of cold water helps seal pores.
And another thing to remember: The longer your cleanser is left on your skin, the drier your skin will become – so unless you’re washing your face with glycolic acid cleanser, always rinse after 60 seconds.
