Guilty of falling asleep with your makeup on? You’re not alone! But refreshed, hydrated skin is just 5 minutes away!
There’s simply no excuse not to cleanse before bed.. Especially when you know how much harm it can do and how easy it is to avoid falling asleep with your makeup on!
The Nightmares of Falling Asleep with your Makeup on!
Hate those nights when you just can’t help but crash into bed without so much as a face wash? Whether it’s been a crazy day or you’ve had a drink too many, you need to know what you’re getting into when you’re going to bed without proper cleansing…
All those makeup and dirt particles get trapped against your skin, causing oxidative damage that breaks down your skin barriers like collagen. This leads to ageing skin and premature wrinkles.
The second and most common fallout of sleeping with makeup on is breakouts. Your makeup particles lead to clogged pores which attract bacteria and results in acne. And its worse if you have oily or temperamental skin!
- Dull skin
Dermatologists agree that every night you spend with makeup on, leads to duller damaged skin. Why? Because it’s the job of your skin cells to renew and revive at night when you sleep. And when there’s makeup and foundation on, it prevents the renewal process, causing damage instead. This leads to duller complexion and ageing skin.
- Brittle Lashes
Thick eye liner and mascara particles can easily clog the hair follicles and oil glands on your eyelids and irritate them. This can lead to swelling, eye cysts and can even cause conjunctivitis. Sleeping with mascara on can lead to brittle eyelashes over time that break easily!
- Enlarged Pores
Not just clogged pores, the makeup particles can permanently damage your skin with enlarged pores due to repeated clogging and trapping of oil.
Ewwwww.. That’s nasty on your skin! Thinking of a quick wipe? Don’t even go there… those makeup removing wipes can do more damage than you think!
