Do you really have to wash your face and remove your makeup at night? Yes!” Just as we lie down and close our eyes, our skin prepares to work its nightly magic. Skin goes through its most regenerative processes after the sun has gone down as it sheds dead skin cells, soaks up the skin care we slather on, and heals the damage done to it during the day.

In an ideal world, we would wash our faces in the morning and again at night using a face wash, or at least a cleansing wipe. It is important to remove the day’s makeup, dirt, and pollution from our skin. Skipping this step and collapsing straight into bed can lead to acne breakouts and speed up skin aging.

Here are some incredible all-natural cleanser options for taking good care of your skin:

Purity Cleansing Balm by Unique Remedy Skincare is ready to purify, detoxify and cleanse your skin with its powerful composite of botanicals that whisks away impurities, dissolves makeup and hydrates all at the same time. It is one of the very few cleansing balms made without harmful ingredients such as petroleum and mineral oil. This powerhouse of skin food starts off solid then melts into the skin to latch onto dirt and grime deep within the pores. Rinse with warm water, or for lazy nights, wipe face clean with a soft cloth.

Snow Falls Whipping Cleanser by Cremorlab has a foam-like texture and leaves your skin clean without feeling tight. Water, tannins, flavonoids, edelweiss extract, papaya extract, aloe, and rose mallow extract work together to hydrate and brighten the skin. This is a great option for those with sensitive skin.

Kojic Acid Whitening Soap from Japan is not for the weak. This soap deep cleanses while exfoliating the skin to reduce dark spot and hyperpigmentation. It is meant for skin with stubborn long-lasting dark spots. Extensively used in Japan as a skin lightener, it works by stopping the production of tyrosine, a skin darkener. It works by penetrating the upper layers of the skin to inhibit the formation of pigmentation.

COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser is formulated with botanical ingredients for cleansing, detoxifying and hydrating. This gel cleanser is ideal for normal to oily skin types. It uses tea tree oil and natural exfoliates to address the pores, control oil and soften the skin.

Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser is a daily exfoliating cleanser for all skin types. This product has 4-in-1 benefits as it cleanses, purifies, reduces pores and hydrates. The cleanser contains enzymes, clays and essential oils to reduce congested pores without stripping the skin of its moisture. The key ingredients are aloe vera leaf juice, sunflower seed oil, apricot seed powder, rice extract, pomegranate fruit extract, rose clay and willow bark extract.

When makeup products aren’t removed thoroughly from your skin the breakdown of collagen, wrinkle creation, clogged pores, and acne increase. Fight the urge to fall into bed before cleansing your face to keep your skin looking healthy and radiant.
