While many women focus on making sure that their African American skin care product is keeping their complexion looking fabulous all day, some ladies may forget how important it is to care for your skin at night. Recently, Daily Glow published an article explaining what you should be doing for your skin before you go to bed each night.
First, it's crucial that you wash your face at night. Even if you didn't wear makeup that day, the dirt, oil and pollutants that you encountered throughout the day can clog your pores and lead to acne.
Next, the news source stated that when you sleep, your body temperature increases, which can dry out your skin. This is why it's very important to use a moisturizer at night.
"To keep your skin hydrated, apply a thin layer of moisturizer that contains humectants like hyaluronic acid or glycerin, which bind water to the skin, as well as ceramides that will restore the lipid barrier," said Diane Berson, M.D., assistant professor of dermatology at the Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University, quoted by the news source.
Become Gorgeous recommends that after washing your face at night, you should use a toner to remove any remaining traces of dirt or oil.
