Spanish uses the so-called "personal la" (or personal definite article in general) when referring to parts of a person's body. No idea why. It just is. We have similar constructs in English but those are very formal and sound stuffy.

Me lavo mi cara todas las noches. It was allowed. No sure why "la cara" is given as the answer.

I did the same. I remember at times DL does not accept it in the similar sentence. it accepted this time, only means that the differences are subtle and interchangeable. in spanish, an article is used, while in English a possessive adjective used.
