If you usually exfoliate in the mornings—kudos to you for exfoliating! However, if you exfoliate at night instead of the morning, you’ll make the most of your skin care routine.
By sloughing off dead skin cells when you exfoliate, you’re helping to unclog your pores, thereby allowing products to absorb better into your skin. Our skin is in repair mode at night while we sleep and the products that are formulated to use at nighttime tend to be more potent or contain more nourishing, reparative properties. Therefore, exfoliating at night will enhance nighttime product penetration.
