Welcome to Skincare with Claire! We all know I love taking care of my skin the best way possible, therefore I love learning new tricks and tips. I have learned so many in the past couple years and want to share them with you! I have way too many to share in one post, so I started a weekly series of “Skincare with Claire.” This will be weekly along with my other blog posts! Let’s get started, shall we?
What do you think the best way to go to bed is? MAKE-UP-LESS!
Always wash your face, whether you have make-up on or not. Our faces accumulate a ton of dirt, natural oils, and sweat. Leaving this on the face at night can cause break-outs. Think about how much bacteria from our face ends up on the pillow.
Over night, our skin regenerates and creates new skin. If we clog our pores, it’ll make sure that regeneration doesn’t happen, which leads to aging. Taking care of our skin even when we are sleeping is very important! Double cleansing before bed can help prevent. Even if you want the simplest night-time routine, use an oil cleanser, foam cleanser and then night mask or moisturizer! The nighttime masks are very thick and moisturizing for overnight due to this being a optimal time. I will use another blog and another time to explain the importance of night masks.
Next, leaving mascara on overnight can cause damage. It can scratch the eyes. Also, it can lead to microscopic bugs living in the eyelashes. Ew! No Thanks!
Clean your Pillow
Last but not least, clean your pillow too! I try to always use my satin pillow and clean it once a week. Sometimes I’m bad about this because I don’t remember to wash it until I’m going to bed, by then I’m too lazy! Haha! BUT, I have been working on getting better at this and you should too! I use a satin pillow. The satin does not pull on the skin or hair overnight like a regular pillow case would.
Here are the pillow cases that I order (Click on picture and it will take you to the Amazon Affiliate Link):
I hope these little tips about a bedtime skin routine will help you regenerate a whole new face by the time you’re done with it!
