Cleansing your face before going to bed is essential for removing any dirt you many have picked up during the day.
Nighttime is the right time to apply any face treatment. At night your skin will not be exposed to the sunlight, air pollution or any bacteria-ridden particles that might be present in the air. Your skin also repairs itself at night by replacing dead skin cells with fresh new ones. Making sure your skin absorbs enough nutrients during the night is vital. It will revitalize your facial skin and works wonders on skin that has been exposed to all the dirt and grime of the daytime. You should also apply the treatment to your arms and neck area.
Importance of Exfoliation
Walnut scrub is ideal for oily skin. Make sure you scrub your face in circular motions and wash with cold water. For those with sensitive or dry skin, use baby oil or wet cleansing pads, followed by a night cream.
Our skin is always generating new skin cells at the dermis layer and sending them to the surface (the epidermis). As the cells rise to the surface they gradually die and become filled with keratin.
The keratinized skin cells are essential. They give our skin its protective quality. But they are constantly sloughing off to make way for younger cells.
And as we age the cell turnover process slows down. Cells start to pile up unevenly on the skin's surface, giving it a dry, rough, dull appearance. Exfoliation is beneficial because it removes those dead cells that are clinging on, revealing the fresher, younger skin cells below.
However, it is possible to overexfoliate, especially on the facial skin where it is usually more delicate. Overexfoliating will dry and irritate the skin. So be gentle when you exfoliate.
