Keep Your Skin Clear

One of the best things that you can do at home in order to keep your skin clear and beautiful is: NEVER GO TO SLEEP WITH MAKEUP ON. This basically clogs your pores and slows down your skin’s natural regeneration process. This is one of the most neglected steps in any skincare routine and most people don’t think of it as a preventative measure and insurance against the factors that will cause you to age prematurely.
Your skin goes through the same process that your body does when you sleep. It repairs and restores itself from the wear and tear of the day. Night time is so crucial for cell regeneration and if you leave makeup on, not only will you ruin your pillow case but also your beautiful skin.
The other more immediate cause of not removing your makeup is that your skin could breakout- something easily prevented by washing your face at night time. The fact is that most makeup contains harmful chemicals that are known carcinogens and studies show that your skin will absorb the many chemicals contained in them. They cause the skin to become irritated and dry immediately, but in the long run they cause aging from within.
Using a night time cleanser in your skincare routine is an easy step that is often overlooked by many people, but if you start now you might avert any signs of aging for years to come. Washing your face at night before bed is a fundamental step to clear and beautiful skin. DON’T NEGLECT IT.
My recommendation when choosing a facial cleanser is simple. First, you should always use an organic facial cleanser that you can use everyday to remove surface dirt and grime.
This will prepare your skin for a moisturizer which contains needed nutrients that your skin needs in order to repair itself. Obviously, your moisturizer should also be an organic moisturizer so your skin can properly absorb all the essential vitamins and nutrients it needs to function at optimum. The result? Radiant, beautiful skin.
It is never too late to start a skin care regime that will make your skin look healthy and glowing! You will love yourself for it!
As always I looks forward to hearing from you and hope to see you at Joanna Vargas Salon, Skin Care Sanctuary in New York City. Where you will get the best facial in NYC.
