Wash every night?

Q: “Do you really have to wash your face every night?”

– Carey, via email

A: Yes, especially for those who wear makeup or are prone to acne. Turning in without washing away your day is like not washing your hands after you eat. “People touch their face with their hands during the day, so it’s important to take those extra few minutes before be to wash away bacteria,” says our go-to dermatologist Dr. Lisa Kellett of DLK on Avenue.

What to use: Foaming cleansers can be irritating for some people. Kellett recommends using an exfoliating cleanser with a non-foaming base to promote cellular turn over (skin-speak for glowing dewy skin, faster). We’ve been gaga over her polishing gel cleanser for over a year now! Buy it here.
