How did I learn to manage my skin, one might ask? For a short time following college I worked at a dermatologist’s office, and it was one of the greatest things I could have ever done for my skin (and now, yours!). I’d weasel my way into daily conversations with doctors to hoard away tips for mastering skincare. As I’ve mentioned, I definitely can’t say my skin doesn’t have flair ups here and there, but I can say I know how to manage them.
Here are 5 tricks to help clear up your skin overnight, and to help keep your skin looking as young and vibrant as possible.
1. Steam Your Skin
2. Try Toothpaste
3. Use Oatmeal To Make A Face Mask
4. Gently Exfoliate Your Skin
5. Always Wash Your Face Before Bedtime
I can’t tell you the amount of times I’ve had a friend or family member tell me they don’t regularly wash their face before they go to sleep. They’re often the same people wondering why their skin is prone to breakouts. Admittedly, I’ve done this as well too on occasion, especially after a night out drinking (which is also usually when I’m wearing the most makeup, too — my poor pores!).
Washing your face before you go to sleep helps to unclog pores and dissolve this residue that has built up. It also helps remove excess oils. Not only is washing your face before bed beneficial for fighting acne, according to Marco Medrano, Beauty & Grooming Editor at NowItCounts.com, it can also keep your skin looking younger. Major bonus, if I do say so myself. If you’re someone who tends to jump into bed and is too lazy to get back up and wash your face, consider keeping face wipes on your nightstand.
