Ladies, get in here! For total cleanliness, you need to observe these 7 nightly rituals! From skincare to dental hygiene, inculcate these habits for a healthier you!
Always wash your face before bed
Washing your face before bed takes care of left over cosmetics and dust from the day. Stash cleansing wipes on your nightstand for nights when you’re too tired to move.
Use lukewarm water when washing your face
Hot water dries out your skin, and cold water won’t open up your pores so warm water is skin friendly.
Scrubbing too hard leaves skin rough and red. Avoid using harsh sponges or scrubs on your face. Opt for a towel or wipe or use your hands instead, but be sure they’re clean, or you’ll transfer acne-causing dirt and oil right back!
Don’t skip your total wash!
Hairstyling products get absorbed by your pillowcase then transfer to your skin—if it’s not cleared away at night, it will still clog your pores!
Brush your teeth
Sometimes after a hard day, you come back exhausted and you forget to brush your teeth. The same way the skin needs to be free of makeup is the same way you need to eradicate the particles from the teeth to avoid foul breath.
Wash your privates if you will not have a bath
You really need to wash all the washables down there if you are too tired to have your bath but hey… a bath shouldn’t take so much of your time, should it?
The trick is to remove the layers of dead skin cells and dirt that are blocking your pores—and your skin’s natural glow. When washing, first use a mild face wash to cleanse your skin. Then, lightly massage exfoliator onto your face.
