How many times a day do you cleanse your skin? Two? WELL. You might want to cut back to one!
Way back in 2012 the gorgeous Salma Hayek Pinault revealed that she did not clean her face in the morning, but instead ensured it was given a good cleanse at night. Her reasoning being that the skin needs the oils that appear overnight to balance the PH and keep the skin looking young. (And boy oh boy does her skin still look young!!)
And it kind of makes sense right? We know over-cleansing leads to dry, stripped skin, but did you know it can also send your sebum production into overdrive? Causing more oil and more chance of breakouts?
But lets not just trust the ridiculously young looking Salma. What do the skin experts say?
Naturally dermatologists are split, but the general consensis is that you might need a morning cleanse if you're not keeping your pillows clean or are running air conditioning overnight. But if you must cleanse in the morning - use a super gentle cleaner. Save the big kahuna for the night time cleanse!
