Beauty Q: Do you wash your face in the morning?

We need to know.

IT’S ONE OF the first things many people do when they get up in the mornings.

Washing your face. If you’re one of those people, you might be surprised to learn that not everyone puts cloth-to-face in the am.

Some dermatologists claim leaving the natural oils on your face in the morning is actually GOOD for it as you’re not stripping the skin and causing it to get oilier.

I mean, don’t we all put our nice creams and oils on before we go to sleep? Unless your pillow hasn’t been changed in a while, it’s unlikely you’re getting to terms with much dirt during your sleep.

A Glamour writer did an experiment where she stopped washing her face when she woke up, and found her skin to be much better as a result.

But then there are those who think it’s kinda gross to go into the day with last night’s oils still sliding all over your face.

But even those people don’t wash their face like in the ads.


But what about you? Do you wash your face in the morning?
