Do I Really Need To Wash My Face Every Night?

Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley and Nearby Areas of Arizona

Admit it, you’ve come home from work or a late night out with the girls and have not washed your face. You probably thought it was no big deal, right? Well, the team at Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery is here to tell you it is a big deal. Washing your face every night is absolutely essential for radiant skin, especially if you like to wear makeup or are outside a lot.

Nevertheless, we want patients to look and feel their absolute best, which is why we perform some of the industry’s best skin treatments at the Mosharrafa Skin Rejuvenation Center. To improve the appearance and health of your skin, the team always stresses a proper skin care regimen is needed, and part of that regimen includes washing your face every night.

Face washing at night is most important because it removes makeup, dirt, grime and pollutants that have congregated on the surface of your skin throughout the day. Washing your face at night and applying the right products is also important because your skin needs time to regenerate and heal, kind of like the rest of your body when you go to sleep. The team at Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery understands washing your face too frequently can create skin irritations and/or aggravate acne, which is why it’s okay to skip cleansing in the morning and just rinse with warm water.

Some of the biggest face washing issues for clients is dry skin from over-cleansing or using products with harsh chemicals. Products that contain large amounts of surfactants, compounds that break through the surface tension of the skin to absorb and remove dirt and oil, can also remove good oils and cause over-drying, redness and irritation. Therefore, it’s important to find products that not only work for your skin, but have good, skin-healthy ingredients.

Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery carries an array of skin care products with ingredients that correct damage at the cellular level, which slows down the aging process to reveal beautiful skin. All of our products come from top-notch brands like Obagi™, Jan Marini™, SkinMedica™, Clarisonic™, Advanced Mineral Makeup™ and Latisse™, so you know you’re getting the best possible treatment.
