Deep cleansing is recommended only in the evening, to help remove makeup and dirt built up during the day. In the morning, skin is prone to dehydration after long sleep, so you should only use mild cleansing products, nonfoaming, with a pH of 5 to 5.5.
In the morning, especially on cold days, washing your face with cold water can be considered a torture. However, if you use water that is too hot on your face, your skin will lose its moisture and dry out. Use cool water to wash your face.
Exfoliation should only be done in the evening. In the morning it can irritate the skin. After exfoliating, apply a mask or at least a thick layer of cream to restore moisture and replenish the skin.
Products containing retinol
Retinol containing products promote the regeneration of skin cells, but also make the skin more sensitive to sunlight. If you use them in the morning, it will be easy for your skin to be irritated when you go out.
Too many products
Using too many skin care products is not recommended in the morning, as it is time consuming and the products cannot penetrate the skin. Moreover, thick layers of skin care products can gather dust, causing clogged pores and acne.
Even in dry weather, do not use moisturiser that is too concentrated in the morning, because your skin will not have enough time to absorb it. Use moisturiser with a thin and light texture that can penetrate the skin easily.
Even though you take all the steps of skin care routine, your effort will be worthless if you forget suncream. Without protection from sunlight, the skin will suffer from harmful ultraviolet rays and air pollution, resulting in melasma and other dermatological problems.
