Despite the fact that a person’s face is probably one of the most noticeable features on their bodies, very few of them give much thought to taking care of the skin there. Many people use various forms of make-up and treatments during the day instead of at night when most skin replenishment and rejuvenation actually takes place. As a result, they often end up looking older than they really are which can be prevented with the proper care.

1. Ensure that You Drink Enough Water

Not as much important every night as it is everyday but not enough water in the body can take its toll on your skin. This is a beauty point that cannot be stressed enough. Our bodies and especially our skin comprises of a large percentage of water. When we do not consume enough water, the body starts to dehydrate which can result in the formation of wrinkles and age spots forming on the face and around the eyes. Although many people think that consuming water at night will keep them awake, the opposite is actually true. This is because our bodies use the water we drink at night to flush toxins out of the body that can cause our faces to look dull. By drinking even a single glass of water before bed each night, you will be doing your face a tremendous favor.

2. Remove Make-Up and Treatment Products from Your Face

Most of us use various forms of day creams, make-up and treatments on our faces during the day. While these products do serve a purpose, it is crucial to ensure that they are properly removed from our faces before going to bed. By doing this, the pores will be opened which allows the skin to breathe and rejuvenate during the night. Excess make-up and creams that are left on the skin overnight can cause unnecessary breakouts or even skin rashes in more severe cases. Always use a dedicated make-up removal product to ensure that all oiliness and residue is properly removed from the facial areas.

3. Wash Your Face Properly

Although make-up removers do a great job of removing cosmetic products from our faces, some of them contain ingredients which may irritate the skin if left on for too long. The best way to ensure that your face is completely clean before retiring for the night is to wash it properly with a gentle cleansing product and warm water. This will allow the pores to open sufficiently to release excess cosmetic products which in turn will allow the facial skin to breathe properly during the night. After washing your face, it should be gently patted dry with a clean, soft towel. Do not rub your face excessively while washing or drying, as it may cause skin irritation.

By taking proper care of your face during the night as well as during the day, you will be able to prevent the onset of ageing for as long as possible. To most women, there is no better compliment than for her to be told that she looks years younger than she really is.
