While you might spend a lot of time in the morning applying your African American skin care products, you need to make sure you spend just as much time caring for your complexion at night. While you sleep, the environment in your bedroom could be wreaking havoc on your skin - especially in the winter. Good Housekeeping magazine offers some tips for a proper nighttime routine for women who want to wake up looking fresh.
First, the news source spoke to Ranella Hirsch, M.D., a Boston-area dermatologist, who said that the best thing you can do for you skin at night is keep a humidifier in the room, especially during the colder months, when the air is already dry to begin with.
Next, the magazine stated that no matter what, you have to be sure to wash your face before going to bed.
"So many people sleep with their makeup on and wonder why they wake up with funky eye gunk in the morning," says Emily Kate Warren, a New York City makeup artist, quoted by the news source.
TotalBeauty.com states that a proper nighttime regimen, complete with high-quality moisturizers and face washes, is the key to better-looking skin.
