According to Rachel Nazarian, M.D. of Schweiger Dermatology Group, washing your face daily is super essential if you want to prevent early aging.

She says that there is still a lot of confusion out there as to why we actually wash our faces and how to do so correctly.

So here are the facts on why face washing is so important.

  1. If you have acne, it's essential to wash away the sources of your acne.
    Think oil, grime, the likes. This is so self-explanatory and if you are desperate enough to get rid of your acne, you would totally jump on this.

  2. It helps to prevent aging.
    All the pollutants floating around in the air especially in cities, like Lagos, can get into your pores and wreak havoc. Washing your face regularly can be very helpful in this area.

  3. Washing your face not only washes away the bad stuff, but lets the good stuff in.
    If you don't wash your face, you're allowing all the pollutants, smog, exhaust, and other garbage found in the air to settle into your pores. This then prevents the skin-fixing products you're trying to apply, from penetrating your skin. Washing your face basically equals receiving the full benefits of your serums, moisturizers, and creams.

  4. Wash with water not clean with wipes.
    While Nazarian does note that they are especially effective in dissolving makeup and physically removing it from your face, there are chemicals in your wipes that you need to wash off, putting us right back to square one.

If you think more than once a day is a bit too much and would prefer to go the once-a-day route, Nazarian strongly suggests making this "chore" be part of your nightly routine.

This way, your leftover makeup and pollutants from the day are washed away.

You can fully maximize your product's benefits, and your skin is able to renew itself throughout the night while you sleep.
