We’d all love to have flawless-looking skin, that’s why we can be a bit meticulous about our skincare. Usually, what comes first in our elaborate multi-step routines is face washing. Prior to applying all sorts of moisturisers, oils, and essences on our faces, it has become automatic for us to wash our faces before anything else. Normally, people wash their faces twice a day: in the morning and at night. But what if this habit does more harm than good?
In a video with Vogue, Hollywood actress Bella Thorne revealed that face washing only once a day helped stop her acne. “I don't wash my face in the morning because there’s something called over-washing your face. And when I had really bad acne, that was one of the things I stopped, and it actually helped my skin,” she explained. It seems quite a ridiculous idea at first. After all, this most basic skincare practice helps refresh and clean our face before we start our day. So would Bella’s advice really work?
