During the evening while you’re resting, your skin is working hard to rejuvenate. Take the time to care for your skin in the evening, and you’ll be rewarded with renewed and well-rested skin in the morning. Cleansing in the evening is a two-part step. First, use an oil-based cleanser, which is the best way to remove oil-based impurities like makeup and excess sebum. Next, follow up with a water-based cleanser, which removes any remaining residue like sweat and dirt.
