Good question: Do you really have to wash your face in the morning?

 
 
So you wash your face every night, but you’re wondering if you’ve gotta wash it in the a.m., too? We know the morning rush can get a li’l crazy, but you also don’t want to head to school without feeling fresh. Here’s our answer to the age-old question:

 

Nope! If you wash your face at night, it’s generally not necessary to redo your whole face wash routine. Instead, roll out of bed and splash some water all over your face and dry with a clean towel, following up with your favorite moisturizer. Following those steps will ensure a fresh face without spending the extra time sudsing your skin.

 

However: The answer depends on the type of skin you have. This routine will actually benefit some girls with dry skin; over washing dry flakey skin can make it worse. On the other hand, if you have oily or acne prone skin you will definitely want to keep your full cleansing treatment happening in the AM. Using a cleanser for oily skin is a must to rid skin of excess oils that can cause breakouts. Just don’t forget to moisturize after!
