There are 3 reasons for washing your face in the morning:
- Remove all traces of night products to ensure any traces of them are off of your skin so your protective daytime products (like those that contain antioxidants such as vitamin C and sunscreen) are uninhibited and can work their absolute best.
- When you sleep at night, your skin secretes toxins and sebum (oil), which could prevent daytime products from working as effectively as possible. Washing your face in the morning gives your skin a clean slate so protective products work as effectively as possible and last longer on the skin.
- Even if you have dry skin there is a chance that traces of oils from the night time products are still on the skin and will prevent absorption and effectiveness of day time products.
Using a gentle, gel face wash will not strip the skin and cause drying by altering the ph.
Make sure you follow with a suitable moisturizer right away and prevent moisture loss.
We suggest several Morning Wash products:
Micellar Cleansing Water by Sothys
Water Drench Hydrating Toner by Peter Thomas Roth
There you have it. In order for your skin to be as healthy as possible, you want to have a clean slate in the morning, so your sunscreen can be the star of the show. Remember, sunscreen is the anti-aging product you can have on your skin.
