Spots, blemishes, fry patches, greasy zones — skin can have all sorts of ways of misbehaving. So when you’re dealing with a less-than-ideal complexion, there’s a lot of advice out there on how to clear your skin or get a fresh-from-the-facialist glow—whether it’s pouring money into expensive treatment programmes or eating a certain diet.
But when’s the last time you heard this advice? Do nothing.
It might sound sacrilegious, but this one simple, lazy girl-endorsed trick could do wonders for your glow.
According to Well and Good, new research says that cutting your products and not even using water on your skin is actually the best thing you can do. Leaving your skin ‘dirty’ is really good because cleansers throw off the correct proportion of bacteria on your skin that let it regulate itself.
Even some dermatologists can get behind the seemingly counterintuitive idea. Every time you wash your face, you strip your skin of some oil. Over-washing can compromise the skin barrier function.” In other words, leaving it alone is better for the bacteria on the surface of your face—which keeps your complexion functioning optimally on its own.
Of course, it’s not right for everyone. Some dermatologists recommend that people wash their face at least once a day with a gentle cleanser, preferably at night (when your face is coated with a day’s worth of dirt). Not washing your face could cause the buildup of oil and dirt that may lead to acne, more prominent pores, and inflammation.
