I've been having doubt with these method for quite some time now.My mom, never washes her face in the morning with any cleanser, just water and carries on her day like normal.Her skin is flawless, no breakouts, just lil tiny old age spots here and there ( She's 56)
I've even tend to ask strangers with beautiful skin what are their secrets.I do found one thing which is common between them, is that just using/splashing only water in am.Its said that overnight when we sleep, our skin produces some kinda good oil, and if its washed away the next morning,our skin get stripped its natural oil and this will lead to breakouts.I even followed some bloggers where they swear just using water in am, and they have fantabulous skin! Another super gorgeous friend of mine from FB had the most flawless skin ever.She told me she only uses ACV to wipe her face in morning and hops in the shower.How easy!!!
Another good example is my mother in law.She goes to work every morning, just rinses her face with water followed by a day cream.She'll repeath the same in night time too.Well I can assume why this method works for her as she doesnt wear any foundation, just some talc powder,eyeliner and some gloss.Her skin is too good for someonewho've already 59!
I wash my face twice a day, with regular cleanser, and still I do breakout no matter what .3 days ago, I started skipping cleanser in am.I just wash my face with a gel cleanser at night, followed wt an AHA night cream.
It was a huge challenge for me the next morning as normally I just cant wait to shower and get cleaned from head to toe after my lunch [pls note that currently Im a housewife ;) ] I wash my hair every single day with mild shampoo, as I feel my hair is greasy.
What I've noticed during these 3 days when I skipped my cleanser in am ;
- My skin didnt get oilier than usual as how it'll get oilier if I use a cleanser in am
- My current breakouts started drying faster than before
- No new breakouts yet
- Glowy face bit ( I can relate this to the small Muji face brush which Im dry brushing my face every morning)
- No need of daytime moisturizer as my skin still looks moisturized after shower( perhaps the absence of the soap cleansing)
This is my 4th day.Im still sceptical over this method, just giving it a week and see how actually it works.
Who's in here don't not wash their face in am?:)
