While it’s (fairly) common knowledge that going to bed without washing your face is bad for your skin, it’s not always clear what should follow in your evening skincare routine?
Should you exfoliate? When do you put on eye cream? Can you simply slather on an extra layer of lotion at night?
According to researchers at the University of California-Irvine, new skin cells grow faster while you sleep, so a good evening facial routine should be a high priority. At night, the goal is to repair damage from the day’s pollution, sun and stress.
