Cold, dry air will deplete your skin of critical moisture in a heartbeat, and catching up once you get behind is difficult. Dry skin brings on brutal challenges such as oily skin, blemishes, deeper wrinkles and lines, sluggish healing and repair, and dullness, to name a few.
At night, wash away oil, dirt, pollution, makeup and more from the day. In the morning, wash away excess oil, hair products, and more that came from your pillowcase and sheets. When your skin is clean, it is prepped to get the best from your serum and moisturizer.
If your skin is giving you fits, be sure you think beyond your daily skin care. Sometimes the primary cause may be something relatively unrelated to your skin care regimen, like hair products, laundry detergent, certain foods, etc.
You can't erase 20 years of bad habits in one week. Make small changes, like cleansing nightly, drinking lots of water, and getting enough sleep — and then stick with it.
Your pillowcase may be aging your skin. If you're focused on preventing or reducing the signs of aging, then you might want to do some laundry quick. A pillow can feel like Heaven after a long day, but if your pillowcase hasn't been changed in awhile, it will wreak havoc on your skin.
We are beautiful because of who we are and where we came from, not because of what we put on our skin or how well we cover our flaws.
